Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
On this page you can see updates over the term of our activities and learning.
Juniper Class are all excited, as they have started having viola lessons on Wednesday afternoons with Miss Brown (principal viola player North East Lincolnshire Youth Orchestra). Mrs. Brady has been impressed with all the children's enthusiasm.
Key Stage 2 children enjoyed taking part in a harvest celebration in St Margaret’s Church, as ever the church looked lovely with its decorations created by the congregation.
The children enjoyed singing hymns and performing harvest poems and songs.
We have been looking at some of the designs created by William Morris that were inspired by nature. This afternoon we explored our outdoor environment looking for ideas for our tiles. We took photos of the leaves and berries and flowers that interested us to help with our designs.
To our delight we were greeted by a large number of resident frogs as we explored our nature area. They certainly surprised us as they leapt out of the grass.
The children have been very excited to start the Year 3 & 4 Minecraft Club. It is a great environment for the children to work together to build their own creations in a safe on-line environment.
We will post photos later in the term to show what they have made.
We were given pictures of different circuits. We used the equipment to investigate if the bulb would light. We learnt that you need a complete circuit in order for the bulb to light.
Before the day many of us researched what a Victorian might wear. We came in some fantastic costumes and were able to compare the dress with clothes today. Some of us researched jobs Victorian Children may have had to do for example chimney sweep or Matches Girl.
During the day we took part in a role play event where we found out what it was like to go to school during the Victorian times. We all decided that we preferred to come to school in 2018.
In groups we discussed the main events in the text then role played each character.
This helped us to consider the thoughts, actions and opinions of each person. We worked together to act out how each character would react to the key events in the chapter. We enjoyed performing our ideas on the stage in our outdoor classroom.
