Can we persuade you?

Our school has recently opened a brand new community hub to support our families and local community. Obsidian class have written letters to several companies asking them to support Heavers Community Hub by donating items and money.

You must agree with us that Obsidian class children are experts at writing to persuade.

Heavers Community Hub is open to all families every week day 3pm to 3.30pm. If you cannot come in at this time, call the school to arrange an alternative time.

Additionally, we are accepting donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries and money to enable us to continue growing our community hub.

We are here to help.

Lights, angles, action!!

In our art lesson today, we started by recapping types of lighting for photography then learnt about different angles to consider for high quality digital photos.

After that, we practised what we have been learning about digital photography. We had lots of fun taking digital photos while carefully considering what our desired outcome was.

Children chose their favourite photo from their work. Have a go at identifying the type of light and angle used in their favourite photos.

Here we are at work…

Photographers in Amethyst Class

In Art children have been studying digital photography and today they have started applying their knowledge of lighting, angles and composition, when you take a photo. Take a look at how concentrate they were and at some of their photos.

Seasonal Food in UK

The children learned the link between food and seasons and how they are intimately connected, as they are going to create recipes using solely local and seasonal food. As part of their lesson, the children were involved in a tasting activity… Not everyone was blown away by radish and celery, but it was fun!

Training Singers in Amethyst

In music, the children have started developing new skills around singing, using the diaphragmatic breathing, voice projection and interpretation. The children began by understanding what muscles are involved in this type of breathing and, later on in the lesson, they started practising belly breathing. You cannot believe the fun they had during the lesson. Take a look and let us know what you think!

Loud and Proud

The international organisation ‘Soroptimist’ for women is sponsoring a competition in the Croydon district to advance women’s human rights and status in society.

The competition aims at:

  • To encourage girls to play a more prominent part in public life;
  • To improve the art of communication;
  • To develop research techniques;
  • To encourage girls to develop the skills to speak effectively and to articulate with clarity;
  • To develop self-confidence and personality.

Girls must select one of the following topics and present a speech lasting a maximum of between 3-4 minutes. Please note that although cue cards are acceptable additional points will be awarded to those not using written aids.

The five selected topics are:

  1. What makes Croydon the London Borough of Culture 2023?
  2. What impact do you think the Lionesses will have on sports for women and girls?
  3. How do we convince more of the older generation and, in particular local & national figures that Climate Change is real and what action needs to take place to stop it?
  4. What changes have your family made due to the inflated cost of food and fuel?
  5. Monarchy or Republic – which is better and why?

Next week, the speeches will be reviewed and edited by the children, with the support of their teachers, before they are presented to a panel of judges that will select the best ones for the competition.

We wish you all the best!

We would like you to write another marvellous setting description using the language devices we have been learning so far. Remember the purpose of your writing: you are writing to entertain!

Please, continue revisiting your times tables, accessing Times Tables Rockstar.

Next Week Spelling: practise your spelling and create sentences with these words. If you are not familiar with their meaning, please, use a dictionary to help you. (Make sure you are revising previous spellings.)
