Ms Trickett and the Nursery class spent time today teaching parents some of the sounds (phonemes) and how to write them (graphemes). This also helped to develop the parents’ fine and gross motor control needed to be a proficient writer. Well done Nursery and well done parents!
Year 5 have been exploring how they look. They particularly enjoyed muddling up each other’s faces and trying to work out which part belonged to which person. It was amazing how challenging it became to recognise the people we see every day.
A few weeks ago, Year 5 attended a tag rugby festival at St Clement Dane’s School. Every child in Year 5 demonstrated outstanding resilience pushing themselves in every game to achieve their very best. At the end of each game, they reflected carefully and tried to improve for their next performance. I was so proud of their attitude and performance!
After over 2 months in their wormeries, we gave our worms some well deserved freedom today! We put them into the raised flowerbed so that they can get on with creating quality soil, adding their nutrients, ready for our next science project in Summer Term.
Y2, how did it feel emptying your wormery? Do you think we did the right thing? Had the worms changed much?
