As part of reading our class book 'The Fatal Fire', we sat around our firepit to read the next part of the story. We put paper cubes at edge of the fire, imaging they were the houses in the story to see how the fire spread. It was fascinating to see how quickly the houses caught light. We wrote lots of phrases from our experience, such as 'lingering smoke', 'flames danced like ballerinas' and 'crackling like popcorn'.
Year one have enjoyed a super start to the new school year...
We have been exploring our school and writing information posters.
We have to learning about seasonal changes and looking for the signs of Autumn.
This week we’ve had an exciting delivery from the Jolly Postman! We can’t wait to find out more about him and his friends!😁
New School Year - 2022/23
Year 2 Beach day!
Year 2 have had fun doing their first beach day activity this morning! We have been playing in the water, building in the sand and enjoying some beach games.
YEAR THREE RAINFOREST IN A BOX HOMEWORK PROJECT
As part of our current topic on the rainforest we have been learning about the different layers of the rainforests. Miss Cope and Miss Maddocks set the children a homework project to create a rainforest in a box showing the different layers and some of the animals that live within them.
We have been BLOWN AWAY by the incredible rainforests the children have made! Here are some children showing off their amazing creations!
KS2 Sports Day - Friday 8th July 2022
KS1 Sports Day - Friday 8th July 2022
Forest School After School Club
Key stage 2 children have had a great time at Forest School After School club. They have made dens, bracelets and created crafts in the woodland from logs, wood and clay. They even made a rope course where they could walk between trees. The children really loved cooking with the fire and eating pancakes.
Year 5 have been making the most out of the warm weather and spending time in the Forest Area. They were set the challenge of creating a den using a tarpaulin and rope - they loved this challenge and really rose to the challenge.
This afternoon the children in Year Two enjoyed sharing our reading books with reading buddies from Year Five. It was great reading outside - and we just missed a sudden downpour at two o'clock!
Year 2 RNLI Talk!
Even though we have had to postpone our beach day, Year 2 have still had an amazing day! We were lucky enough to have David Meads come into school to tell us all about the RNLI and keeping safe on the beach. We learnt what the different flags mean and talked about some of the dangers. We also learnt about the seaside. It was quite a surprise when we thought about all the things we might need to take with us to the beach - that's a lot in one beach bag! The children loved it!
Boaters had a lovely treat at the end of the day on Friday when we listened to Paddington stories around the fire. It was a calming way to end a very busy week!
Strawberries – yum!
Our first crop. Trilby class harvesting the fruits of their labour!
Year 1 - Marine Biologist visit!
Year 2 were really lucky to have a visit from Mr Porter today. As well as being Sachi's dad, he is a Marine Biologist! He spent time with us this morning sharing his experiences of diving around the world and studying the creatures that live below the waves. It was fascinating and the children learnt so much. We were all very interested in his knowledge and some of us decided we would like to train to do this exciting job!
Thanks to Mr Porter for giving up his time today.
Botanical Gardens Trip - Year 4!
Year 4 LOVED their Botanical Gardens trip last week. They had a great time visiting the glasshouses and were amazed by the size of some of the plants. They also got to learn about rainforest plants and animals - and even hold some of them!
Botanical Gardens Trip June 2022 - Year 3
We had an amazing time at the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham and we learnt so much about rainforest plants and animals! We explored the glasshouses and James spoke to us about what some of the rainforests plants are used to make; like medicines, furniture and even tyres!
