Junk Orchestra Visit
This year's Science Week theme is 'exploring and discovering'. On Tuesday 13th March we were exploring sound as we were lucky enough to have a visitor who brought his percussion instruments which were made out of reused and recycled junk, such as tyres, tubes, wood, and even flip-flops.
Our Years 5 and 6 team played really well against Highworth and St. John’s schools in our netball tournament on Thursday 8th March (our first ever tournament as a netball team). We put up a good fight and didn’t give up in either of our matches, but unfortunately lost against two very good teams. We will have another match soon, and now we have had some match experience and are gaining in confidence, we hope that this will help us win in the future.
Well done Cedar Park!
World Book Day 2018
At Cedar Park World Book Day 2018 was celebrated on Friday 9th March. World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world. This year the children and adults dressed up as a favourite character. As part of our celebrations the children spent part of the morning reading books with the children in Year 1.

A few reminders for Spring 2 half term:
This half term, PE lessons will be on a Monday and swimming on a Thursday, please make sure children have the appropriate PE uniform (trainers, plain tracksuit bottoms, plain black shorts, school coloured PE top and a plain tracksuit jumper in case of a cold day).
Reading Records and Homework Diaries will be checked for parental signatures and 4 records in the Reading Record on a Monday. These records can be put in by the children themselves as they read independently, but must be verified by a parental signature.
Library will be on a Tuesday.
New spellings will be given out every Thursday and will be tested the following Thursday.
There will be home learning projects given out for this half term, each piece of home learning will be due every fortnight before the Easter holidays, the same as what happened in Autumn 2.
We've been having a busy and productive Spring term so far. We've just begun our half term projects, so look out for some photos of these in the near future!
We have been using our new laptops in our learning, not only for researching and typing practice but also using the internet as a resource for learning. A good way to practice your times tables is with this website: www.quizlet.com/MrSpurway
You can choose a times table focus and then a game. The galaxy game is a particular favourite amongst the class!
There are a lot more choice of websites available on the internet too e.g. BBC bitesize and Topmarks
Practice makes perfect!
See the top of the page for a link to some WOW writing of the term!
