Challenge Me Hula Hooping Event

Last week, the whole school took part in the Challenge Me Hula Hooping event. EYFS had to hula hoop for 2 minutes, KS1 for 4 minutes and KS2 for 6 minutes without stopping! This was to try to improve our stamina. We had lots of fun and all got stickers for taking part.


Visit from Larry the Tortoise

As our topic this half term is dinosaurs, we were talking about how tortoises are one of the closed related animals to dinosaurs. Hollie and her Dad kindly offered to bring their pet tortoise Larry intos school and we all got the opportunity to clean, feed and hold him.


Dinosaur Discovery

When we came into school this morning, we saw a trail of footprints. After being archaeologists this afternoon, we decided as a class that we thought they belogned to a dinosaur.

Birdman experience

On Tuesday 5th November we had a visit from the 'Birdman' Alan Ames. He brought in some amazing birds of prey and told us lots of interesting facts about how each one has adapted to be the perfect predator. 


MATHS WEEK ENGLAND! Maths and Art!

During Maths Week England, each child from every class produced a piece of Maths related artwork.  The children really enjoyed being creative with Maths and the results were fantastic! On Thursday, the Hall was transformed into an Art Gallery for the children to visit. A selection of work was exhibited from each class which included shape garlands, shape rockets, symmetrical patterns, arrays, tessellations, optical illusions and geometric designs.  There were some interesting conversations in the "Gallery" where the children discussed their favourite works of art! 


Outdoor Learning Day

All of the children had a great time during Outdoor Learning Day. The children in Year 3,4, 5 and 6 learnt a lot from the RSPB workshops. Year 1 and 2 produced some fantastic artwork from the leaves that they collected.  Well done everyone!


Sports Day

Wow, what a super afternoon KS1 have had! We have participated in our Sports Day today and had the most fun, all whilst managing to escape the rain! All of us joined in with lots of races including running, hurdles and even an obstacle course. All of the children showed their super attitudes towards sports by following the school's sports qualities; honesty, determination, self-belief, respect and teamwork. Well done Key Stage One!


Maraca Making

As part of our Sport's Week, each class has been assigned a country to follow in the Cricket World Cup. In Year 1, we have been following and learning about the West Indies. As part of our learning about the Caribbean countries, we explored different musical instruments and decided to make our own Caribbean maracas. We designed a band for our instrument using a range of shapes, colours and patterns before sticking it onto our bottle and filling with a range of materials to make a variety of sounds.
