Term 1 2019-2020
Our Challenge Day was great fun this term as we towers and bridges out of spaghetti and marshmallows. Looked at Different shapes together and made objects out of cardboard, cups and string.
Hans from our church came in and took assembly on Wednesday, he played his accordion and we sang.
Miss Allchin led workshops all about the impact of plastics on our planet. We talked about recycling, some of us wrote letters to the Prime Minister to ask for a law to be passed to stop the use of so much plastic. We thought about our Oceans and the marine life and what is happening to the animals. We designed and painted our own canvas bags to take home.
Celebrating World Book Day, our day was themed as ‘Share a Story’, we chose a book to read and a partner to share it with. Most of the school dressed as their favourite book characters. We had a theme in every classroom – Mary Poppins Room, Neverland Room, Recipes Room, Harry Potter Room, Wild Room, Fairy Room and On the Farm Room. There were activities for everyone to do too, Treasure Maps and Pirates, Glittery Wands, Boxes for chocolate frogs, kites, biscuits and much more. We had the ‘Best dressed Potato head’ competition and the winners from KS1 and KS2 were able to choose a book from Amazon. It was amazing and with so many entrants the competition was fierce, well done to the winners Ronnie and Poppy and Bradley a runner-up! It was fantastic day with everyone enjoying reading and sharing together.
Our attendance helicopters have improved this week with every class reaching over 95% – yah!
Year 2 showed their wonderful work this week. some amazing silhouettes of dinosaurs and some artwork produced in RE to show how God made the world in 7 days.
This week Finley in year 1 shared with everyone all the rosettes he had won from his horse riding competitions. Didn’t he do well!
We launched our new ‘charter chairs’ this week to fit in with our new jigsaw scheme. William year 1, Danny year 2, Ashleigh year 3, George year 4, Abi year 5 and Cisco year 6 were the children nominated by their class teacher to sit on the charter chairs with class jigsaw pieces. Well done to you all!
