This week, Nursery have enjoyed colour mixing in the mud kitchen. “Wow, it’s turning orange”.
This week, we have read the story Each Peach Pear Plum. We learned about the queen and about the platinum jubilee. We enjoyed playing in the castle role play area and creating our own castles. We have also been mixing colours.
This week, we have been looking at the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We explored loose parts to create a gingerbread man. We also played some gingerbread man themed maths games and explored magnets and hooks on the cranes/lorries to carry a load.
Last week, we continued to focus on the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We discovered paw prints in our classroom and thought they might belong to the big, bad wolf. We created wanted posters to find the wolf and made traps. The children enjoyed sticking their posters up around the classroom for others to see.
This week, we have enjoyed looking at the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We made baskets, explored red paint and looked for red objects outside. We have also started our RWI phonics and learnt how to say ‘m’ and ‘s’
Last week, the children in nursery enjoyed the story ‘Supertato’. We made traps for the evil pea, created our own supertato and explored printing with vegetables.
Year One have worked so hard this half term… All of the staff are so proud of how amazing they have been settling back into school life and throwing themselves into their learning. We have been extremely lucky to be able to regularly visit the Outdoor Classroom, this has helped to inspire our learning and is something the children have really enjoyed.
Les Herissons (and all of Year 3) have loved learning about the Ancient Egyptians.
Look at these amazing non-chronological reports they have produced in writing!
They have so much knowledge and we are all so proud of them.
Yesterday we welcomed visitors from a range of companies to help host our annual careers fair. Year 6 pupils got to find out about careers in technology, engineering, environmental sciences, media, firefighting and town planning. Thank you so much to everyone who gave up their time to help our pupils find out more about future career options.
Year 2 finished their textiles artwork this week by using their handmade relief blocks to print repeating patterns on to their dip dyed fabric. They used their concentration skills and created some fantastic final pieces.
What an amazing turn out for our workshare this afternoon! Thank you to everyone for coming and helping to celebrate the children’s learning across the school. 🎖️
The upper KS2 performance club treated staff and parents to a live performance after school today.
They showcased their hard work from this half term, presenting the song ‘a little circus’.
Their singing and choreography was amazing! We are very proud of their efforts.
Thank you to Miss Graham for using her talents to inspire our mini actors/actresses!
Year 2 have had a very exciting afternoon dip dyeing their fabric ready for printing on to next week. The children carefully attached pegs to their fabric and then chose three colours to dip into. They showed excellent concentration skills and have created some lovely patterns on their dyed fabric.
This week we have been thinking about how to use the bikes and scooters safely. We talked about the importance of always wearing a helmet to protect our head and to look where we are going. The children decided to use sand timers to help them to share the bikes and scooters so that everyone could have a turn.
Linked to this year’s Big Garden Bird Watch, here are some photos from Year 6’s bird watching activities in Outdoor Learning this morning. Children enjoyed constructing their own bird hides, watercolour painting and making bird feeders.
Today we looked at what our bodies need in order to survive. As part of this, we looked at the Eatwell plate and grouped foods into the correct groups.
We learnt that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition and that they cannot make their own food; they get nutrition from what they eat.
