We would like to share our most recent Celebration Assemblies with you. Every Friday we will show some photos of the work celebrated in the assembly.

Reception’s Celebration Assembly 14th July 2017

Reception stunned us all today with their recitals of songs they had composed, descriptive writing, poetry, riddles, handwriting, maths and information writing. They talked confidently to the whole school.

We all loved their singing too!

Year 1 7th July 2017

Year 1 read stories they had written about the books “Handa’s Surprise” and “The House Cat”.

We also saw amazing work that had been completed on recording quarter to and quarter past the hour.

Year 2 - 30th June 2017

Year 2 celebrated today by sharing 'How to care for a Bog Baby'.  They had been inspired by the story Bog Baby.  On Tuesday, Year 2 went to Media City in Manchester to watch the filming of Swashbuckle.  They read their recount of the day.  It sounded so much fun!

Year 3’s Celebration Assembly 16th June 2017

Year 3 showed us all photos about the activities they carried out on the residential. They had a brilliant time finding artefacts in the iron- age house, walking from Burwardsley to Beeston, toasting marshmallows, taking part in the Mini-Olympics and singing songs around the camp fire and much more!

Year 4’s Celebration Assembly 9th June 2017

Some of Year 4 read us their imaginative poems. The type of poetry they used is called a Kenning. This is a two word phrase used to describe someone or something. We had to try and guess what was being described.

We then watched videos of Viking reports; everyone agreed that these videos are brilliant. Year 4 used their voices like real presenters and planned the content extremely well.

Thank you Mrs Hancock and Year 4.

 

Year 5’s Celebration Assembly 26th May 2017

Year 5 read sections of their non-chronological reports about space which were written both individually and collaboratively.The presentation of the work is excellent as is the quality of the writing.

        

Year 6's Celebration Assembly 19th May

It was really interesting hearing about Year 6’s trip to Bickley Hall Farm in Cheshire which is run by Cheshire Wildlife Trust. Everyone really enjoyed picking rhubarb and making their own rhubarb crumble.

We then had the opportunity to hear excerpts from Year 6’s very own spy thrillers and see a picture of a detailed and ingenious gadget that would be essential equipment for a spy.

Reception's Celebration Assembly 12th May 2017

Reception stunned us with their writing about mini-beasts, maths calculations, the poem that they had written as a class and their investigations.

The whole school also loved seeing their mini-beast art on the screen. We are looking forward to reading the poem on the school website.

Celebration Assembly 5th May 2017

Year 1 surprised us all with their Magic Box. They told us that anything at all can go in it. A magical heart, a cruise ship, a bolt of lightning and Dracula’s teeth were pulled out of the box during assembly.

The whole class have made their own Tin Forest books which were beautifully presented. The children celebrating read excerpts from their books and showed us the illustrations of the colourful forest at the end of the book.

Thank you Year 1!

Year 2’s Celebration Assembly 28th April 2017

Everyone was really impressed with the work completed by Year 2 on “The Great Paper Caper” by Oliver Jeffers.

When Year 2 came into their classroom on Monday the 24th April they knew that something serious had happened. There was red and white tape around a crime scene. They saw a broken branch, some sawdust, some crumpled paper and some footprints. How could this have happened? Who did it?

The class have written investigations and witness statements connected to the story and explanations about how paper is made. What great fun they had making their own paper aeroplanes and flying them on the field!

Year 5’s Celebration Assembly 21st April 2017

We really enjoyed hearing about the residential to the Menai Centre. Watching the video also gave us an insight into the exciting activities. The video can be seen on the Year 5 Class Page.

Thank you Year 5 for telling us all about your experiences and for the being the best at so many things!!

Year 3's Celebration Assembly 31st March 2017

Year 3 celebrated their art work and poetry based on the book “Where the River Meets the Sea”. Each child has produced a poem about the forest and a piece of art work. The art will be added to a class piece called “The Forest” which will be exhibited at the “Without Walls” exhibition at Queen’s Park High School in July. Everyone worked hard to produce excellent work.

Year 4’s Celebration Assembly March 24th 2017

We really enjoyed watching the children show us what they know about electricity. It was fun when Year 4 asked the children questions about conductors and insulators. The demonstrations of how the fan worked interested everybody.

We also heard facts read out from beautifully presented Water Cycle books and admired a piece of art which showed a range of techniques.

March 17th Year 6’s Celebration Assembly

“Voices in the Park” by Anthony Browne is an excellent book for teaching about character and different viewpoints. We heard great descriptions of the characters and pieces of writing which showed the different characters’ perspectives on the world. The flip chart was used to ask pupils to work out some algebra using the bar method. The explanations about how to work out the problems were brilliant.

 

Reception’s Celebration Assembly 10th March

We were really excited about the learning that is happening in the Reception class. We heard about giant leaps in phonics, subtraction and writing. The children used the microphone and read their work to the whole school. We learnt about penguins and stingrays. Did you know that stingrays lift their tail when they sting?

The children also tested children on number facts and demonstrated their phonic skills in front of an audience. After the children had received their Gold Awards the rest of the class stood up to perform the Gruffalo song.

 

Celebration Assembly March 3rd 2017

Year 1 look brilliant in their World Book Day costumes.

They showed us their amazing drawings and descriptions of an imaginary troll on Wanted posters. If you find the troll you could receive an £1000 reward!

We also heard about the homework completed over the half term holiday about birds. Fantastic to hear that everyone in the family has helped to identify birds that visit gardens early in the morning. Some children also went on visits to places like the Liverpool Museum and Martin Mere to find out more about birds. WOW!

 

Celebration Assembly February 17th 2017

Year 2 read their own versions of three sections of the story “Jack and the Baked Beanstalk” in sequence. The range of adjectives chosen made the stories really interesting to listen to. We also heard a news report about the collapse of the beanstalk.

Two children showed us their calculations using money and asked the children in the hall to answer subtraction questions.

Well done Year 2 for impressing both the children and teachers with the work in your books. You definitely deserve certificates and a Gold Award!

Celebration Assembly 10th February 2017

The children in Year 3 stunned us with their times tables test results and their descriptive writing.

We heard the introduction from two children and then the next section from two others. The stories were written in the first person as they were the main character in the book “Stone Age Boy”.

Everyone enjoyed listening to Year 3 and the whole school felt very, very proud.

Year 4’s Celebration Assembly 3rd February 2017

Year 4 showed us their branching data bases. The children demonstrated how these help us to sort and categorise effectively. We also listened to extracts of descriptive writing inspired by a short film called “Once in a Lifetime”.

Everyone in the hall was very impressed.

Year 6’s Celebration Assembly 20th January 2017

Thank you to Year 6 for explaining some of the aspects of maths they have been working on. All the children listened and many wanted to answer the questions.

It was brilliant to listen to the interesting information written about famous people’s achievements. Each pupil in Year 6 has researched a famous person by reading biographies. The writing was engaging and we all wanted to know more.

 Reception Celebration Assembly Friday 13th January 2017

Reception were the first class to celebrate their achievements in 2017. Their amazing dinosaur art was created by using collage and inks. The children worked together in groups to make their dinosaurs. Each child celebrating was able to tell the whole school the names of the dinosaurs; we have some experts already.

The children have also been writing independently, their sentences tell us facts about the dinosaurs.

To end the assembly the whole of reception sang a new dinosaur song that they have been learning. They sang very confidently and surprised us all with a big roar at the end! We are looking forward to the next time we hear the dinosaur song, you might even recognise the tune! 

Year 1 Celebration Assembly 9th December 2016

Year 1 showed us amazing work in their RE, Art, Science and Topic books today.

The school looked at the collection of pictures about Advent and detailed drawings of Tudor buildings in Chester on the visualizer so that everyone could see the work clearly.

It was also fantastic to see research completed about the Eastgate clock which was read to the school with confidence.

Celebration Assembly 2nd December 2016

Year 2 celebrated their performance at the Multi -Skills Festival. They all showed good skills, excellent behaviour and showed that they can work well with others. Six schools took part in the festival.

 

Well done Year 2. 

Year 4 Celebration Assembly 25th November 2016

We really enjoyed hearing about how the lanterns for the Lantern Parade on 1st December were made. Then we listened to some very dramatic stories about Boudicca’s battle and speeches that Year 4 thought that Boudicca would have made. It was also amazing to have Year 4 test us all out on our times tables and division facts.

Brilliant work Year 4!

 

 

Year 3 Celebration Assembly 18th November 2016

Year 3 read sections of writing they had completed this week that showed fantastic progress. Some read descriptions from work about Ancient Egypt and others read parts of their story called the Toymaker set in the early 1900’s.

 

Celebration Assembly 11th November 2016

Year 5 talked about their projects on bridges. The team that achieved the highest number of points in Year 5 showed the school their bridge. The bridge was made from paper and masking tape and is extremely sturdy.

We also saw some excellent photographs of the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct constructed by Thomas Telford and paintings of the suspension bridge in Queen’s Park and the Old Dee Bridge. 

Celebration Assembly 28th October 2016

It was brilliant to hear about the games that the Year 6 had taught to their buddies in Reception. The children were able to see photographs with examples of the games on the screen whilst the Year 6 pupils were talking to the school.

We also listened to some extracts from their persuasive letters and advertisements and admired art work that has been completed for the school’s forthcoming art exhibition. 

Celebration Assembly 21st October 2016

The Reception children really enjoyed their walk to Westminster Park on Tuesday. They have been preparing for the walk by looking at signs of Autumn on the school grounds and looking at them closely in the classroom. We heard all about the number challenges using tweezers and conkers.

Well done Reception for sharing your learning with the whole school.

Celebration Assembly 14th October 2016

We heard about the hard work that is being completed in Year 1. Year 1 have been learning the days of the week through their recount of a book called “Oliver’s Vegetables”. Everyone has been writing and illustrating zig-zag books and ordering the sequence of the story. Super work Year 1!

Celebration Assembly 7th October 2016

Year 2 showed us their excellent work in assembly. We found out about the maths that they have been doing this week. They have been adding two 2 digit numbers together by partitioning the numbers into tens and units and then adding them together.

The children also read different parts of their own stories about “Dogger” by Shirley Hughes.  We were all really impressed with the children’s use of punctuation, exciting choices of vocabulary and their expressive reading.

Well done Year 2!

Celebration Assembly 30th September 2016

Year 3 asked us questions about Julia Donaldson the author and told the children if they had answered correctly. We found out about how old she is, her favourite food and her favourite pet.

We also found about the children’s work this week on healthy eating. The children had taken on the role of a personal trainer for a boy called Will who wants to be a successful gymnast. He was advised not drink fizzy drinks and to eat more fruit. Brilliant work Year 3!

 

Year 4’s Celebration Assembly 23rd September 2016

Year 4 read some facts from their posters about the Romans. It was really interesting.

Did you know that the Romans called Chester “Castra Deva”? Also did you know that the Romans invaded Chester to increase their wealth and to get easy access to wheat, wool and dairy products?

Then we heard extracts from the children’s exciting stories based on the legend of the “Lambton Worm”. This legend is from County Durham in the North East of England. Well done Year 4!

                                          

Celebration Assembly 16th September

On Thursday 15th September Year 5 walked into Chester to start their topic on Rivers. The class went to see the Old Dee Bridge and Queen’s Park Bridge. The children took their sketch books so that they could sketch the two bridges. The drawings were of a very high standard and will be used as a basis for further art work that may be exhibited at the school’s art exhibition on the 14th November.

 

            

Celebration Assembly 9th September 2016

 

Year 6 have been busy during the holidays and have completed their homework on the Second World War to an extremely high standard. The group of pupils who celebrated their work today created interactive posters and a model of a fighter bomber that would have been used by the British Royal Air force. We also found out about rationing and the use of clickers to identify friend or foe.

Excellent work Year 6!
