Mrs Marshall


I have been teaching at Greyfriars since 2004 and am very proud of being part of our wonderful Greyfriars team.

I am one of the school’s Assistant Head Teachers and I currently teach year 6’s and I am in charge of literacy throughout the school. I believe that reading improves all our lives – whilst reading we can visit anywhere in the world and we can take a step out of our own lives and live in the imagination of someone else for a while. 

In Winterton class we try to make the most of every learning opportunity and strive to do our best.

Outside of school I enjoy reading (obviously!) and spending time with my family.

 

Welcome to the weekend Winterton!

Welcome to the weekend!

We have again been working really hard this week – discussing girlfriends and boyfriends, learning more about revolutions, finishing our current maths units and becoming news reporters. Well done to all of you for your hard work in writing your news reports. We had a very mixed selection – gorillas eating people, shape shifters on the run, chickens causing traffic jams, the Houses of Parliament on fire (as well as a cafe in Paris), robots taking over the world, flying motorcycles, penguins travelling to New York, seals found dead on Hunstanton beach, albino orangutans and albino giraffes, seagulls stealing chips, a young girl breaking into a house, cancelled proms and reports on basketball and football games! Congratulations to those of you that received ‘superstar’ awards for your efforts.

Our attendance rewards this week were won by: Lily, Stephanie, Amber, Arminas and Azuolas who kindly passes his reward onto Evelyn. Very generous of you Azuolas!

Congratulations to the following for moving up a level in Tackling Tables:

Lillymay

Grace

Amanda

Lily

Rosy

Noah

Kimberley

Brodie

Nearly everyone in the class is now on Red Level which is the highest level in the scheme – well done, but remember there are 11 sub-levels in red level and no-one has reached the 11th yet! Keep working 🙂

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday

Mrs. Marshall 🙂

We have had a hectic week this week. We started with really hot, sunny days but have finished with cold wet weather – never mind it is Friday and we have the weekend ahead of us!

Well done to the following people who have all moved up to the next stage in Tackling Tables this week:

Lillymay

Enija

Sophie

Rosy

Kimberley

Brodie

Lily

We are nearly all on red level now which is where year 6 should be. Those of you that are still on blue or green really need to be practising the speed and accuracy of your mental recall of multiplication and division facts.

Also well done to those of you that had positive notes sent home this week:

Kylie

Jack

Azuolas

Leon.

Thank you to those of you who always work your hardest and behave well. I could send home positive notes for you every day. You know who you are!

Finally Grace, I hope you are feeling better and we look forward to seeing you on your return.

Have a restful weekend everyone and see you all on Monday

Winterton celebrates!

Well done this week to those children who completed all their homework over the half term holiday, and remembered to bring it back –

Kimberley, Arminas, Amber and Theo.

Also well done who have gone up a level in their Tackling Tables this week:

Leon, Brodie, Amber, Sophie, Azuolas, Emilijus, Amanda, Evie, and Madalin.

This week we have started our SRE work, and began by drawing what we thought the ‘perfect’ man or woman looked like. Boys drew the perfect man and girls drew the perfect woman.

The results were very interesting!

The girls didn’t think the man looked perfect and the boys didn’t think the woman looked perfect. We thought about where we got these ideas of the ‘perfect’ man and woman, and whether this was a realistic expectation of ourselves.

We are becoming journalists this half term and have been looking at how news stories can affect our self-esteem and our mental health, and strategies we can use to help us and others.

Watch this space for more news!

Just a reminder that swimming is on Fridays and is a compulsory subject on the curriculum – please make sure you have your swimming kit unless I know of a medical reason that prevents you from swimming for that week.

Have a good weekend

Mrs. M

Winterton, let’s celebrate – it’s the weekend!

Well done Winterton – we have made it to the end of the 5th Half term – only 1 more to go and then it will be time for big changes!

 

Many good things happened this week.

Firstly well done to all those who have moved onto the next set of Tackling Tables:

Theo

Isla

Amber

Emilijus

Madalin

Evelyn

Arminas

Azuolas

Sophie

Lillymay

Enija

Kimberley

Nikola

Jack

As you can see, we are definitely improving our knowledge and accuracy in our multiplication, division and application of facts.

Also this week, we have some ‘over and above’ children (children who have gone either out of their way to do extra work, or children who have impressed me this week.

Kylie for remembering and using maths terminology; Kimberley who has produced a video explaining how tornadoes are formed (a link with out topic work) and last but not least – Isla who was really helpful today, peer teaching another group of children!

Congratulations to the 5 children who won the lucky dip attendance award this week:

Enija

Erin

Jack

Amanda

Brodie

We completed some STEM paper challenges on Thursday. Here are some of the results:

We used only A4 paper (1 or 2 sheets) glue and scissors, and we made:

the longest paper chains

the tallest tower

the strongest chairs (that could hold a teddy bear)

the strongest tables (that could hold a glue stick)

the most waterproof cups

with a variety of successes!

Well done Winterton – you have worked well this week. Enjoy your half term break!

See you on Monday 7th June.

Winterton Friday blog 14th May 2021

Posted on Friday, May 14th, 2021

44 teaching days to the end of term! So little time and so much work to do.

We have been busy again this week, indoor PE again due to rain, wind, cold; commands in French; geometry and explanatory writing. Today we had to make up excuses for various scenarios such as ‘why I haven’t done my homework’, ‘why I’m not wearing my school uniform’, ‘how I lost the dog’ – all to practise our casual conjunctions!

If I haven’t been able to take any photos during the week, our Friday blog looks a little bland – if you have any photos you would like to go onto the blog, please email them to me.

Who knows what we will have on next week’s blog?!

Have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Mrs. M

Well done Winterton for your wonderful week ending today 07.05.21

Posted on Friday, May 7th, 2021

Well done for another good week.

Due to weather being so awful this week, rather than doing tennis outside, we all went into the hall and did some balance work for gymnastics. Her is some of our work:

We worked very hard at keeping still!

Also this week we have been writing our hot task for our Jabberwock work. When we had invented our own narrative poem, we illustrated our work before sticking it in our literacy books. Here are some lovely examples:

In our celebratory assembly today 2 people were mentioned from Winterton: Jack for settling in after being off school for so long – well done Jack and you did some really good maths work today! Amanda was mentioned for her peer teaching, also in maths this week.

We are getting better at peer teaching and are able to explain to others what we are doing by using dialogic talk.

Also well done to Kai and Kylie for doing more good maths work this week.

Well done to all of you that have really worked hard this week, by completing set work and completing it well, giving it all your effort. It is lovely to be able to say there are too many of you to mention!

Keep it up and see you on Monday ready for another week. Just a little something for you to think about – if we were doing SATs this year, we would be starting on Monday!!

Have a lovely weekend; rest and relax ready for lots of learning next week.

Mrs. M 🙂

Well done Winterton! A celebration of week beginning Monday 26th April

Posted on Friday, April 30th, 2021

Hello Winterton

Before I say anything else I must apologise for completely forgetting our Friday blog! We have been so busy that it slipped my mind. I’ll try not to let it happen again.

But here we are now. So far we have been learning about electricity, volcanoes, ration and proportion, decimals, Futurism, writing reports on unicorns and other flying horses, the Jabberwocky and how to tell someone our name and age in French, knowing the vocabulary for things we can find in the classroom – again in French – and we have a lot more learning still to do before half term!

We have had fun drawing what we imagine the characters to look like in the poem ‘Jabberwocky’ by Lewis Carroll.

Here is some of our work:

I need to say well done to a few people in particular this week:

Grace for making a presentation about volcanoes; Isla for writing a report on electricity; Kai and Kylie for hard work in maths,  learning about decimals with Miss Shelbourne, on Wednesday; and Amanda for her peer coaching also in maths.

Don’t forget it is Bank Holiday on Monday, so we’ll see on back in school on Tuesday 5th May.

Have a lovely weekend
