It has definitely been winter this week in school! To accompany the frosty mornings we have been working on the Winter’s Child and Snow Bears in Year R and Year 1/2. The themes have been distinctly science based in key stage 2 where the children have been learning all about forces and biomes!
We share our latest news and annoucements here…
This week, we have a wide range of activities to share with you in our blog. Year R have been getting stuck into The Gruffalo, Year 5/6 have been learning all about mass in their science lessons, Year 1/2 have been marvellous in their maths lessons and Year 1/2 have been making history in their art lessons – literally! Read on to find out more…
Our new library is officially open, thanks to children’s author and illustrator, Simon Chadwick! Elsewhere, Year R have headed back into space, Year 1/2 have been studying ‘old’ technology, Year 3/4 have been mimicking Kandinsky and Year 5/6 have been very busy, including a workshop with the fire service.
This week, read about Year 3/4’s historical cooking, how Year 1/2 have made their own dragons, Year 5/6’s successful rugby festival and how Year R have been learning to measure. We also held our harvest festival online with Reverend Graeme – well done to Year 2 for their thoughtful prayers! A fun week for all to end the half term!
This week, check out our photos from responsibility day and see our values in action! We have also been learning life-saving techniques, decorating stones to share messages of encouragement and hope and learning how to recycle – plus, much more!
This week, Year 3/4 have started a new story, Voices in the Park – another story by Anthony Brown. Year R have been learning about the story of The Three Little Pigs, Year 5/6 have started a new project on South America and Year 1/2 have had a visit from a Dragon!
Our new Year R children have had a really wonderful first full week at school and it has been so lovely to see so many smiling faces. Year 1/2 have been looking for a new home for a penguin in their story ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers and Year 5/6 have been learning to be archaeologists as they look for clues about the Egyptians. Year 3/4 have also been looking for clues but this time as reading detectives as they solve the mysteries hidden in the books of Anthony Browne.
