The Governing Body met via zoom this evening.
Year 1s have been reading Tell Me a Dragon by Jackie Morris as our final text this year. We have been so inspired by the illustrations in the book that we have created and painted our own dragon illustrations today. On Monday we will write poems about our dragons on these “book pages” and present them to the class.
Year 1s learned and applied new skills today in joining textiles. They explored gluing, stapling, safety pinning and finally sewing together pieces of fabric. They designed their puppet characters from the Gingerbread Man and threaded their needles to do basic stitching. Some found it very tricky to persevere with the sewing and we were impressed with their resilience and willingness to try new things. Superb effort Year 1s!
At their Forest School session this afternoon the Year 1s enjoyed a campfire! First they hunted down appropriate sticks to prepare for marshmallow roasting. Then after a couple of listening games the fire were lit and the marshmallow roasting began. The children showed great listening skills and fire safety and had a really lovely time.
Year 4 spent Friday afternoon showing their sportsmanship skills off by cheering their friends on in Sports day! They all participated in races and cheered on other children when they weren’t part of one
Year 6 have had an incredible DT day today, cooking and baking. The children spent some time before half term planning their recipes in groups. They were given the task of creating a 3 course meal to include and a starter using red bell peppers, mains using salmon and desserts using pineapple. We had a range of dishes from salmon and cucumber sushi, to pineapple and coconut cupcakes, honey glazed salmon to pineapple pancakes.
Before half term, Year 3 had a memorable experience in the world of Ancient Egypt. After creating many different artefacts, the children had an afternoon feast full of betrayal, music, dance, drama and food.
Year 1s began their new topic this week – Animals including Humans. They had lots of interesting facts to share! They worked in groups to decide if some animals were fish or mammals. Then we learned about what makes humans mammals.
