We have been learning about the changes that Autumn brings in Reception and so we decided to see if we could find any evidence of Autumn arriving in Queen’s Hills. The children worked in pairs and hunted for Autumn items from a checklist. All of the children did super listening and showed our 3 school rules of Ready, Safe and Respectful!
Our amazing teaching team have been painting self-portraits after school today for our Colours of Queen’s Hill art project. They’ll be going on display in the main entrance next week.
The Colours of Queen’s Hill is a wonderful art project for our whole-school community, where everyone will be creating their own self-portrait to celebrate individuality and diversity, inspired by the work of artist Angélica Dass.
Reception had an amazing water fun day today. The children enjoyed playing lots of different water related games and they ended with a big water fight!
On Thursday we went on our school trip to Gressenhall.
We met Cinderella, Jack, Griselda, the Wicked Witch and the Curator. We enjoyed helping Griselda and Cinderella with their chores, searching for the magic bean with Jack, making potions with the Witch and even going on a tractor ride.
At the end we found all the objects and finally fixed the magical museum.
The children then wrote about their trip.
Reception had their first visit to the outdoor classroom. They were fantastic and walked carefully down. Once there they enjoyed den building, bug hunting and making nature bracelets and necklaces.
What an amazing turn out we had for our Big Toddle Reception Event today! The children were all dressed up in safari outfits and joined in with a range of activities, including balance beams, obstacle courses and throwing and catching races.
Thank you to all of the parents and carers for joining us and helping to raise funds for Barnardo’s Charity.
Children have enjoyed planting sunflowers and monitoring their growth.
Children enjoyed a dance workshop on Friday run by Miss Sunderland.
We have had an amazing day across the school as we celebrated the King’s coronation. Children designed coronation t-shirts, Year 3 and 4 students created coronation puppets in their Forest School sessions, and our lunchtime staff, with the help of council, put on a delicious lunchtime picnic, complete with crown biscuits. A feast fit for a King!
