And so compulsory summer testing time begins…
Year 1 have been busy in forest school this week. You can see them completing a survey to find which flowering plants grow most on the field. They used a bar chart to determine that dandelions are most common, but also found slender speedwell, selfheal, common mouse-ear and wild sweet peas! They discussed how to make it a fair test and how to remove bias. Kirsten has also been doing some wonderful ‘Enormous Turnip’ learning in nursery this past couple of weeks! I’m sad I didn’t get to taste the Turnip soup! (more…)
Y5 and Y6 showcased some of their learning about China at the very end of last term, with an amazing dragon dance, Chinese food tasters, and Chinese music and traditional tales. Well done for such a great showcase! You can see the dragon above! (more…)
We were delighted that so many children made a really big effort to develop their ideas for designing a costume or outfit for their chosen character on World Book Day. Thanks for all your support. They had a great day and were hyper excited! (more…)
Happy half term! Half-way through our year and Year 1 learn all about shapes and halves with pizzas! It’s a newsletter of halves this week!
Australia day in Key Stage 1, early years compose their own website, whilst Africa and China teaching takes a hold in KS2!
Our parent workshop programme begins soon! And yurt activities are on the increase! Great team work on Wednesday from KS1 children in Forest School, who worked together to make a ‘clove hitch knot’ to tie their Aboriginal huts together in the yurt!
Snow business this week in KS2 forest school!
Key stage 2 children wrapped up warm with most having gloves and hats to sustain an afternoon in the snow!
We were delighted to welcome Feyi Awotona to school who supports the North East of England African Community Association. Feyi was able to share traditional African folktales, and showcase some African artefacts to the children as part of their study about Africa this term. (Shame we couldn’t arrange a learning expedition to go to Africa!). (more…)
