Living together - Learning together
On this page you can see updates over the term of our activities and learning.
Emma from the NSPCC came to talk to us about the work the NSPCC do, show Buddy, the 'Speak out' mascot and introduce a fundraising sponsored event.
On Thursday Pumpkin Class enjoyed a penguin themed day, linked to their new topic Animals From Around The World.
They made ‘fish’ sandwiches and penguin biscuits, studied and drew different types of penguin, made penguin paper plates and other decorations. They also learnt and performed a penguin song. In the afternoon they enjoyed eating their products at a penguin tea party. This is what some of the children said about the day:
JB – I liked making my plate because it was funny.
TA – I liked making my biscuit.
OS – It was so much fun!
SM – The best sandwich I’ve ever tasted!
IS – It’s the best hook day ever!
Stanford School have enjoyed their Christmas trip, watching Cinderella! A great time was had by all
Sunflower and Pumpkin classes performed 'A Present for the Baby'.
The story was about Baby Jesus who just wouldn't stop crying and nobody knew what to do. Even the most elaborate gifts that a King, a Queen and a Nobleman brought him couldn't make him happy. It wasn't until a little boy with a very special present (a kiss) managed to calm the baby and stop him crying.
IB: Everyone's done very well.
JO: It was tricky to learn words.
MH: I liked to hear everyone's singing.
PB: My favourite song was 'Just a Kiss.'
LS: I enjoyed doing all the actions to the songs.
CR: I liked the 'tra-la-las' in the choir song.
AM: The Grand Song was my favourite song.
LC: The story told us what is important at Christmas time.
On Wednesday afternoon Year 2 children went on a visit to the library.
We learnt about fiction and non-fiction books and how to find them in the library.
We even helped Mrs Wink to put some books into alphabetical order.
We borrowed 20 non-fiction books all about knights and castles.
Well done to A for her charity work to support the Little Princess Trust - she raised over £1000! Mum and school were very proud!
Key Stage One went to St. Margaret's Church for a lovely Harvest celebration. They sang special Harvest songs, presented Harvest gifts and found out all about the Harvest. Mr. Stevens showed them a wonderful display of fruit, vegetables, corn and beautiful flowers which were on display all around the church.
Pumpkin class ended their day on Friday doing some Yoga, linked to the book The Hungry Caterpillar. They all really enjoyed themselves!
On Wednesday 5th September Pumpkin class enjoyed their Hook Day.
With the theme being Castles, children dressed up as many different people who once lived in a castle. We had kings, queens, princes and princesses; knights, servants, jesters and many more.
The children enjoyed making castle cup-cakes and taking them home. They also made dancing knights and listened to medieval music.
It was a great day and a super start to our new topic.
