Living together - Learning together
On this page you can see updates over the term of our activities and learning. As the new term gets underway, have a look at what Pumpkin Class got up to last year.
Chartwells school lunch company came today and read us the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We learnt about healthy eating and eating 5 portions of fruit or vegetables every day.
Then we made caterpillars and butterflies using a rainbow of coloured fruit and veg. We had so much fun!
Look at all our stars this week, they give us something to celebrate!
Keep making those good choices Pumpkin Class.
Today we have been using a paper copy of the Bayeux Tapestry to follow the story of The Battle of Hastings in 1066. We had already read the story and watched an animated version on line but we have been looking closely at the stitching on the tapestry. We also recreated parts of the battle ourselves through art work.
As part of our design and technology work this term we have been evaluating our castle models.
We thought about the following questions:
We thought you would like to read some of them.
Our Harvest Festival was a joyful celebration introduced by our head boy and girl and Star anise class performed a poem. Rev. Philip Stevens came to say a prayer and give thanks for the food at harvest time. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our celebration, the donations of food will be sent to the homeless charity, Harbour Place.
Well done all of you that got your bee onto the beehive this week by practising your spellings on Spelling Shed.
Stickers are on their way to you today!
Remember to practise every week (new words set on Fridays) to get your bee on our hive.
What a fantastic activity day we had last week! After collecting so much recyclable material, we designed our castles using them. Firstly we drew what we wanted our castle to look like.
Then we chose the most suitable materials and got making. We helped each other out when we needed to – Mrs Smith said we were great at teamwork.
Finally we painted out models to give them a really good finish.
We will now be evaluating our finished models, keep watching our blog page to see these too.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO COLLECT SO MUCH RECYCLING.
