Y5, I love this photo. What were we trying to re-enact?
Year 4 have been really lucky to have Nick, Sean and Chris, from Apex, visit our school. The children have been learning about and tasting healthy food. They have been doing fun activities to keep fit.
Nick wants to know if you can remember how many portions of fruit and vegetables you should eat a day.
This afternoon Year 4 shared their home learning with each other. There was a variety of learning on display including Pandora’s boxes, ancient plates and masks, posters, fact files, models, laurel headwear and much more.
Using Piglet, the children were social and personal learners sharing their thoughts to help develop each others learning.
Last week Maple Cross Explorers took place in the pouring rain. Today there was glorious sunshine. What a contrast! Today some children really took a risk by trying something that they really found difficult.
This was the last week of the current activities and we are looking forward to new learning after the Easter holidays. What have you learnt during the sessions? What has been the most challenging area of the learning?
Over the last few weeks, Year 4 have been learning about Ancient Greece. Today they explored Greek food. They had to describe the foods by using all their senses. Every child took a risk by participating in the activity.
Year 4, can you tell me why the Greeks thought honey was so important?
Today many wonderful creations came into school for our egg competition. There were all different shapes and sizes and many very creative ideas. We look forward to announcing the winners in assembly on Friday. Many thanks to our PTA for donating prizes.
What does it mean to be a child in 2017? Last Friday in celebration assembly we were inspired by the children sharing their voice about the humanitarian crisis in East Africa. This week in assemblies we will be exploring what it means to be a child and our rights around this.
How can we use our voice?
How can we share our voice?
