A wonderful afternoon was had by all who attended our Father's Day celebration on Friday 15th June.
We had board games, sports and doughnuts!
Year 5 and 6 were really lucky on Wednesday 6th June , to have an assembly ran by the schools PCSO Trudie. They also took part in a workshop in the classrooms looking at personal safety, criminal responsibility and the consequences of their actions as they get older. At the end of the workshop the children had the chance to ask any questions.
Year 1 were taken back in time and visited a Victorian school where they were taught by a Victorian teacher, in a Victorian classroom, whilst wearing Victorian clothes. They were given a short Maths and English lesson and were even required to write on a slate board. The children were then able to explore the Victorian town and experience what life was like for a Victorian child.
On Friday 18th May we celebrated the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle.
To mark this very special occasion, the children took part in lots of activities, from afternoon tea parties to art activities looking at British Values. In addition to this, all children took part in a competition to design a commemorative plate. The winners from each class will be given the opportunity to turn their design into a real commemorative plate which will then be displayed in school!
Here are a few photos from the day.
On Thursday 3rd May the Animal Man came into school. We had a fantastic time looking at lots of different animals and learning about their diet, habitat and how to classify them with in the animal kingdom.
To help raise awareness of autism we all wore our brightest, silliest socks.
April 23rd 2018
Class 7 celebrated St George's day by learning about the story of 'George and the Dragon'.
We made a flag using tissue paper and acted out the story of 'George and the Dragon' outside in mixed ability pairs and masks.
Today Year 2 have enjoyed becoming Digital Artists, creating masterpieces in the style of Vincent Van Gogh.
Some members of Class 4 took part in a Bikeability workshop. They received their level 1 certificates, which meant they were able to do things like control a bike with one hand, start and stop with control and ride alongside other cyclists and pedestrians.
On March 23rd we raised money for Sport Relief. It was an exciting day for the children allowing them to help and support others. The children took part in lots of 'sporty activities' throught out the day, including a run around the school!
Photographs show Year 2 enjoying their dance lesson and Reception and Key Stage 1 joining together to run a mile around the school.
Class 7 had a fantastic Science week learning all about 'Disgusting Science'. On Tuesday we investigated who the poo (pretend!) belonged to. We also learnt how to make slime/snot by following a set of instructions. In sensory, we explored disgusting textures. Finally on Friday, we learnt all about mould and why it is important to wash our hands!
In Reception, we have been learning about how the germs on our hands can travel. We have learnt how to wash our hands effectively, so we can help to put a stop germs travelling.
Year 1 looked at why the body produces snot and used shaving foam and contact lense solution to make their own snot.
Then they looked at why we sneeze and measured how far a sneeze could travel, using a syringe and a skeleton skull. The children then squirted the solution through the syringe and out through the nose.
'Year 2 have been learning about mould in our Disgusting Science. We have set up our own investigations to see where bread will turn mouldy the quickest. Lots of us think that the bread we have put by the radiator will turn mouldy first.'
'Year 2 have had a lovely afternoon making cottage cheese from sour milk! There are some uses for disgusting things!'
This week during Science week, we have investigated different types of sick. Our first lesson involved us trying to decide whose sick we had. We had the options: an Ancient Greek civilian, a Tudor civilian or a Word War II solider. We then did a little bit of research on 'what makes us sick?' We then produced a scientific poster looking at micro-organises such as: bacteria, virus and fungi.
We also investigated the best material to make a sick bag. We asked our own question, predicted and observed what would happen to each material once we applied a teaspoon of fake sick. We are now ready to plan our own sick bag.
