Year 1 had a fantastic day at the zoo today! The children showed all of our school values, especially Enjoyment; we are very proud of them.
This morning, Year 3 have been busy making videos about right angles. As part of the videos, they have hunted down right angles outside and explained what makes a right angle. Enjoying the sunshine has been an added bonus!
Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 had a special assembly from Parent Zone, where the children travelled to Interland and learned how to be Google Internet Legends:
The children were keen to show off their best handwriting today as part of National Handwriting Day. Both the staff and children have been working hard to think of creative methods to develop handwriting.
What a day! Everyone looked amazing in their bright colours today – special mention to Mr Kelley for that shirt! Thanks to the generosity of our parents and families, the bring-n-buy sale was a great success! Our School Council, led did a brilliant job in organising the event. Be prepared for some creative Christmas gifts from the children this year.
As part of our whole school WWI project, Year 3 have been learning about what life was like in 1918. We used the following questions to guide our reseach:
What was school like?
How did people travel?
How did children help the war effort?
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, Year 3 walked into a their classroom and had a ‘snowball fight’ with paper. Afterwards, they unfurled each piece of paper to see that each one represented 1000 lives during WWI. We then read In Flanders Fields before doing some independent writing inspired by some WWI photographs.
For Outdoor Learning Day, Year 3 have been collecting natural resources on our school field and then, taking inspiration from the artist Andy Goldsworthy, have created their own pieces of outdoor art.
