Such a lovely Nursery welly walk this morning. The children were fascinated by the frosty leaves and marks their boots made in the grass.
The school hall was unexpectedly busy this morning when Nursery would be using it for PE. We didn’t let that stop us! Back to the classroom for an online yoga lesson, followed by parachute and ring games.
In their science learning today, Year 2 told me they were botanists and then told me that botanists study plants. It was wonderful to see Year 2 looking closely at plants with magnifying glasses. This helped them draw diagrams of what they could see which they then labelled.
This week Nursery have been learning about nocturnal animals and have been reading the book, Owl Babies by Martin Waddell. They have been creative too, and made some baby owls of their own. Here are just a few.
This week in their drumming session, Year 3 were joined by Mr Makondo on his double bass and Mr Dignum on his trumpet. The music sounded amazing with different groups performing different rhythms at the same time. The children had to stay focussed on their own rhythm and were fabulous at it.
Here are the results of the Children in Need guess the baby photo competition. Thank you to everyone who entered and helped us raise funds for Children in Need.
Year 1 started the day by finding out why we wear yellow for children in need. We were all excited to talk about who Pudsey the bear was and what he represented. We then took part in the live children in need workout with Joe Wicks. We worked out a big sweat!
Reception learning about Diwali. Today, Mrs Majithia came in to tell us about how she celebrates Diwali and answer our questions. We learnt that one of the preparations is to wash the doorstep. After Mrs Majithia had gone, the children decided to clean our home corner and wash our doorstep too!
