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?
KS1 will be learning about Easter this week. A simple Google image search just using the word ‘Easter’ will tell you that the true meaning of this, arguably the most important Christian celebration, seems to be being obscured by fluffy chicks and chocolate eggs. Whatever your religion, or even if you don’t have a religion, it’s important to respect the beliefs of other people by taking the time to learn about them.
We will be using these resources amongst others this week.
Nursery have been learning the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Using oral story telling they have learnt the story by heart and act it out with actions.
This week we had goats come to visit. The children had opportunities to feed the goats and stroke them. They have used the photos from this week to create an information poster. Did you know goats have four stomachs and only one row of teeth?
Within our PE session the children took on the role of both the goat and the troll. They began by exploring under the equipment like the troll who sits under the bridge. They then took on the role of the goats and trip-trapped over the bridge. At some points there was a troll and a goat, “Who’s that trip-trapping over my bridge?”
KS2 Boxing club has come to the end of its first term. Here are some photos of the children in action.
Can anyone remind me the four stages of a Jab?
If you would like to join boxing club for next term, it will be on schoolcomms this week.
