This morning, lower school breakfast club children were visited by 2 members of staff from Tescos who very kindly donated a selection of goods to our school. The children were especially excited about the Easter eggs! A huge thank you Tesco, it is very much appreciated!
3H have begun a new History topic – The Stone Age. Over the next coming weeks, we will be studying houses, foods and tools. The first activity was to use a toilet roll! Each sheet represented 100 years and the aim was to give the children a prospective of actually how far back in to history the Stone Age was. They counted over 150 sheets!
In We Believe time, Year 4 read the story ‘Silly Billy’ which is all about Billy who is a worrier. We discussed what people might worry about and how that affects your body. In the story, Billy has worry dolls to share his worries with. We then made our own worry dolls using pegs and material and discussed what we would do if we had a worry.
This week 4C started their new science topic – States of matter. We began by looking at solids, liquids and gases. In groups we were either particles in a solid, liquid or gas and had to act out their behaviour. It was lots of fun and helped us to learn!
This week we have been looking at roles and responsibilities and how we fit in to our families, class and group. We created a jigsaw to show we all fit together despite the fact we are unique.
Nurture group worked together to make pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. Each of the children chose their own topping and created their own pancake.
This week we had a visitor from the Gas works to let us know that some important work will be taking place in our area in the next few weeks. We discussed the importance of staying safe at this time, and how we might do this. Our visitor talked through all of the possible dangers and what we must do as members of our community. We listened well and asked some brilliant questions.
Christmas jumper day for ‘Save the Children’ has once again been a great success. We attended school in our festive jumpers and outfits with happy smiles on our faces and collected money for this charity. By doing this, we have reflected carefully on the true meaning of Christmas and raised money to help others. A grand total of £114 was raised; thank you to everyone who contributed and helped a charity at this time of year.
For our RE Christmas unit of work, each class was presented with a challenge by Miss May. We each had a few weeks to prepare some work to showcase in a whole school assembly. Amazing effort and focus has gone into the whole school activities and we shared some brilliant examples of work which were each based around an important question. We found out lots of information about the Christian meaning of Christmas and looked at Christmas with a focus on different questions which we have all explored. It was a great morning of sharing learning.
Mrs Stevens and Miss Trow are visiting Nepal to view a school and see how they learn. 6H have created a booklet consisting of non-chronological reports and badges full of information about CHJ. Written by Raiyan, 6H.
