Year 3 had a fantastic morning today competing in their events for Sports Day. They took part in a number of running races on the track and participated brilliantly together in their teams. They enjoyed skipping, egg and spoon and space hopper races as well as seated target throw and javelin throwing. Some of the teachers also attempted the skipping race! Everyone tried very hard and did their best. Many children showed a lot of perseverance during their events and didn’t give up. The children said it was such a fun morning even though it was very different to our usual Sports Day.
Year one have really enjoyed learning about instructions this week. They started the week by making their very own bird feeder by following each step carefully. It has been great to hear that they have attracted birds into the children’s gardens at home.
In our unit of RE we have been learning about Shabbat. We have been thinking about what happens during Shabbat and why it is important to Jewish children. Today we have experienced sharing special food together.
This week the Nursery children have shown how physically fit for life they are becoming as they practised their ball skills. We have been working on rolling, throwing, catching, bouncing and kicking.
Today, something strange happened in year one! After break, we found footprints and handprints in our classroom, as well as a big mess! We used decided that we needed to investigate. We used rulers to work out who the footprints and handprints belonged to. We discovered that three friendly giants had visited as they travelled home.
Miss Simmons is a very proud teacher today. Class 1S created a fact file about penguins after learning about non-fiction and the features we might find in a non-fiction book. The children became researchers and then presented their facts using sentences with capital letters and full stops.
Today in 1T we continued to learn about the artist Richard Long. Inspired by his natural art we explored printing using mud. We used different natural resources to make prints, some of us even used our hands!
