Hi, I’m Nikki Grimwood and I joined Oxclose Primary Academy in January 2015. I’ve been in Year 3, Year 4 and now I’m in Year 5! I completed my PGCE at Durham University and before that gained a degree in History and Criminology in Sheffield. In my spare time I enjoy playing with my dog Sprocket and taking him on long walks.

Science Week

On Monday, we started off our science week by ordering the planets and finding out more about them all. We then used this to create our own snap cards. On Tuesday, we found out about the International Space Station before working as a group to create our own. By Wednesday, we were making our rockets, which we launched on Friday morning! Bradley won the certificate for the furthest launch! On Thursday, we had a discussion about who we would take to space with us and then designed space suits to get us there. We got some very interesting and surprising answers! To end our science week, we had an assembly to celebrate the week, where Owen got a certificate for all of his fantastic science work. Finally, we used chocolate to help us think about the rocks on Mars. We even got to eat some at the end!

World Book Day

Year 5 had a great World Book Day wearing some fantastic costumes! In English, we had a think about the similarities and differences between the book version and film version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We enjoyed extracts from each version, made notes, compared using a Venn diagram before writing up our comparisons. We also enjoyed taking part in the drop and read sessions, having a story read to us in the library by Miss Aspey and designing our very own World Book Day tokens.

Roald Dahl 100 Day

Year 5 had a fantastic day celebrating 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl. Dressed up in our finest Roald Dahl character costumes, we started the day with an assembly to hear all about the exciting new story chair being created especially for our school. We spent our morning designing and writing an explanation for a Dream Catching Machine for the BFG, which will be displayed around school. After lunch, we took part in our story chair workshop where we got to design and present our ideas to Penny, who is designing our chair. Finally, we enjoyed some Roald Dahl activities, including a very close fought quiz to end our day of celebration.

World Book Day

Year 4 have had a very busy World Book Day! We started off with a visit to the library where we heard all about The Twits. After, we had great fun creating our very own hand puppets of Mr and Mrs Twit! When we returned to school, we had a good look on the World Book Website and even created our own World Book Day token designs! In the afternoon we posed for some pictures in our fantastic costumes, before using our computer skills to complete PowerPoints all about Julia Donaldson, who we have been learning about in our English lessons. We also took part in the drop and read session where everyone stopped what they were doing, found somewhere comfy to sit and read their favourite book. Next, we were lucky to have a story read to us by Mrs Bolam! We were very good at answering questions about it and impressed her with our knowledge. After, it was back to the classroom for a World Book Day quiz. The winning team even got a prize! Finally, we shared our costumes and favourite books with the class and Mrs Grimwood read us some of her favourite book to finish off the day.
