Thankfully all of Ash class were on the nice list.
We had a fantastic time looking at the wonderful nativity scenes in the church.
Our Journey Day focused on the birth of Jesus. We celebrated and reflected through art, drama, mindfulness and building.
The year 3 and 4 children have been learning lots of new skills in their gymnastic lessons.
To help prepare for our calm room we have been creating pictures of places that help us feel calm. We can't wait to see them hanging in the new room.
This week has been Anti-Bullying week. The theme was 'Change Starts With Us.' We thought about what bullying is and how we can make a difference by supporting each other. A small gesture such as a smile can have a huge impact. We wrote personal pledges to show how we plan to make a difference.
Making a Healthy Snack Bar
As part of our work in Science we have been learning all about skeletons. We were asked 'Do taller people have larger bones?' There was only one way to find out.....investigate. The results were very interesting!
Working together to plan a Non-Chronological report about Blue Whales.
Learning about snakes in Forest School
We had a fantastic day creating self-portraits in the style of Da Vinci for the Big Draw event.
Orthopaedic Surgeons in the making!!
Working in teams we had the challenge to rebuild a skeleton. We had to identify each bone and ensure it was in the correct place. What we didn’t know was that Mrs Baker had hidden one bone from each skeleton to challenge us. Soon we all realised that we had a bone missing. We worked well as a team, communicating and sharing jobs and in the end we succeeded even though there were a few interesting skeletons along the way!
Another busy week at Forest School developing a range of practical skills.
If we were going to participate in The Three Peaks Challenge, what preparations would we need to complete? First, locate the mountains using our knowledge of the UK, then plan a driving route using compass points and locations. Following this we will research each mountain to learn about the height, climate, terrain, the time it will take to ascend and descend and what we should pack. We're all set.
Another fun week at Forest School learning about insects, making earwig shelters and of course playing with the mud!
The children have been learning about the importance of keeping safe when crossing the road during their Stepping Out training. They all listened and responded brilliantly and demonstrated an excellent knowledge of road safety.
We have been writing poems about ourselves. We worked with a partner to edit and improve our work. Have a look on SeeSaw to watch us performing our poems.
Friendship - What makes a great friend?
In science we have been learning about different food groups and the different nutrients that foods contain.
