At Charlestown Primary we try and use as many ‘Web 2.0’ tools as possible to make our learning as exciting as possible.   These tools help us to gather and present information in a really interesting way such as this using Animoto – it’s free use too!

Growing things in Year One

It’s growing time in Year One (apart from the children and some of their new teeth!!).
We’ll be planting a variety of seeds and bulbs this term and watching them grow in our very own ‘classroom garden’.
We’ll keep you posted (and add some pics).
The potatoes will hopefully provide us with a tasty treat when we harvest them in the summer.

 

Don’t Stop me now!

In Year 1 we have been learning about the children who worked at Quarry Bank Mill, Styal  200 years ago.   We have pretended to be the children and we have written some letters home to our parents.   Here they are:

Just before Christmas Year Six conducted a survey to find out what the children at Charlestown really think of the school. It was conducted anonymously and really helped the teachers and governors understand what the children think about the school that we all share.   Here are the results:

Today we worked on openings in Year Six using :

  • Dialogue
  • Action
  • Description

There was some really good quaility discussion and writing and Mr. Kirkpatrick was very pleased.   We also decided to take extra care with our presentation skills and voted on our tables for the children that we thought had taken the most care.   Here are their books for you to see!
