Thank you very much to all adults who were able to come along and support their child! The children really enjoyed these days and we have had fabulous feedback!

Year 2 Arctic Experience

In Outdoor Learning we had lots of fun creating giant murals of penguins using natural resources. We worked as a team to place different kinds of wood to create the outline and detail of the penguin. This linked with our writing about penguins, their habitats, life cycles and any interesting facts that we had found out. Later on we imagined we were in the frosty Antarctic. We had to build ashelter using the resources in the Outdoor Learning Environment. Weenjoyed sharing our ideas and seeing if we could all fit inside ourstructures. Later on in the afternoon we exercised on an assault course and imagined we were training to go on an adventure with Scott of the Antarctic and his team. It w

Aliens in Reception

This week Reception have been learning about Aliens. We have been reading the book Aliens Love Underpants. In outdoor learning we all enjoyed looking for ‘pants’ that Mr Darke had hidden around the school grounds. After that, we had lots of fun running a threelegged pants race! It was so funny! In class we have been designing our own pair of pants. We have come up with some very creative designs! We have written alien speech bubbles and loved pretending to be aliens in space in the role play areas. We have enjoyed creating different aliens and space rockets. We have used the magnetic shapes, drawn pictures, painted pictures and used the construction pieces to build rockets andcreate aliens.

Year 1 Investigate a ‘CRASH LANDING!’

Year 1 discovered something very mysterious in the wildlife area…..a mysterious rocket had crash landed! The children became detectives and searched for clues as to what had happened. They saw burning fire, deep holes in the ground and broken debris scattered all over the ground. There were wires dangling from the trees and even a helmet left by our mysterious visitor. The children used this as a stimulus for writing and were very excited by this event! Look at the pictures and see if you can spot anything strange………
