Holly Class have been treated to a menagerie of animals visiting this term. They have learnt about the care needed for dogs, cats, horses, tortoises, chickens and guinea pigs and have also develop great skills in asking relevant questions.
The last day of the spring term has taken an unusual turn for Holly Class as they are all in pirate clothes. This is a very fitting end to their topic on pirates and whilst they might look a bit scary, I have it on good authority that it is all an act (not sure about the staff though!).
The children will long remember Activity Week if their fun and excitement is anything to go by. Have a look at the pictures to get a glimpse of some of the activities that took place.
The children will be talking about all that they learnt in activity week for a long time if their excitement and interest is anything to go by. Have a look at the pictures for examples of what they got up to. There is a lovely display of work in the hall too for those of you who weren’t able to get into school to have a look round the classrooms.
Holly Class thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Bristol Aquarium where they learnt all about the animals and plants that live in the oceans.
The children in Sycamore Class enjoyed a rare insight into life in a rainforest when they visited the Living Rainforest in Berkshire. They learned a lot about how animals and plants have adapted to the warm, dark and humid conditions. The pictures below will give you a glimpse of what they saw.
A huge thanks to Denis, one of our parents, who spent the weekend building a magnificent mud kitchen for Holly Class. Once we have a few more pots, pans, colanders and wooden spoons etc, as well as the all-in-one waterproofs (!) the children will be good to go.
The new reception children have got their buddies now – don’t they look happy?
Only a few days in and the new children in Holly Class are already feeling settled.
This term, we have been learning about Greece and its islands. Part of our home learning has been to investigate Greek food. Thank to Head Boy and Head Girl we have already sampled traditional Greek biscuits and Honey Cake – yum! Lots of us have been learning to write in Greek too. Zorba the Greek has been a musical inspiration today and we have learning to create repeated rhythms and increase the tempo of a composition – it’s harder than you think! Visit our classroom and our Talents Board to see what we have been up to in and out of the classroom.
