Help for Heroes
Yesterday, children in Year 1 took part in an outdoor assault course in order to raise money for the charity Help for Heroes. We were incredibly proud of how well the children did, going round the course. They ran in and out of cones, jumped over some hurdles, walked across the benches and finally army crawlled underneath some cargo netting. The children raced against one another in teams and both teams did incredibly well, especially considering the heat! A huge well done to all children for completing the course and for fundraising for a fantastic charity. Also, a big thank you to parents for supporting their children in fundraising at home.

Year 4 fun in school, by Mrs Walters
Date: 10th May 2018 @ 11:06am
Some of the children in year 4 stayed in school this week and had a great time learning about oceans, having art sessions and running an orienteering session for year 3!
The children learnt about artist Andy Goldsworthy and spent a morning planning their pictures before heading out into the centenary garden to collect materials from nature.
They researched oceans on the iPads and made pictures with scrunched up tissue or in a mosaic style.
They wrote their favourite jokes in chalk on the playground to entertain year 3 and then yesterday organised an orienteering style session with clues for some year 3 children to find letters which spelled out RESPECT.
The children said they really enjoyed themselves.

Wow Afternoon - Summer term , by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 24th Apr 2018 @ 4:10pm
Year 1 Wow Afternoon!
For our Wow afternoon, children in Year 1 dressed up as gardeners in order to celebrate the start of our Summer term topic: plants. Children looked like excellent farmers and we thank parents for getting costumes for the children to wear.
Throughout the afternoon, we did some exciting jobs to do with gardening. We began our afternoon by thinking about what we already know about plants and then also thinking about what we would like to know by the end of the term. Children enjoyed discussing things they already know about plants and sharing this with their friends. We were amazed with how much the children knew! We then went outside and planted our very own bean seed, using soil, a seed and the watering cans that children had brought in. We will continue to water these seeds in school in the hopes that they will grow and children can then bring them home. Next, we were looking around the playground to spot plants and we drew a picture of a plant of our choice and labelled around it. Finally, at the end of the day we had the opportunity to look at different exotic fruit in order to think about where they are grown around the world. Some children even tasted the fruit (if they wanted to). The fruit we looked at were: bananas, strawberries, passion fruit, mango, kiwi and pineapple. Children were excellent at describing what the different fruits looked like and even gave some fantastic guesses as to which countries they were from: We hope that the children continue to enjoy learning about our topic this term and are able to share with you what they have learnt. .
