Year 6: Forest School

6KB had their final Forest School session yesterday where they enjoyed toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate at our campfire. Over the last few weeks, the children have had lots of fun climbing trees, playing on the rope swing and building dens. They have shown great teamwork and communication skills, working together and challenging themselves to build dens that wouldn't fall down! They have also learnt to use different tools safely, including the drill and knives, to whittle sticks to create letter openers and their own talking sticks. 

Well done, 6KB!

Achievements of the Week (w/c 13th March)

Congratulations to our Times Table winners this week! These pupils have hopped aboard the Times Table train to continue their journey to becoming a Times Table Champion. They have worked exceptionally hard to learn and master their multiplication and division facts. 

Congratulations to our Reading and Poetry Superstrs this week! To achieve this award, all of these children have either read poems or books by their year group authors (Bronze is 5, Silver is 10 and Gold is 15). A big well done to this week's winners who have demonstrated great commitment and dedication to reading. 

Our Achievements of the Week winners should be very proud of their success!  

E for Effort and WOW! Winners (w/c 13th March)

In order to reward our pupils who have gone above and beyond in their learning each week and put in extra effort, each class teacher chooses one pupil to receive the E for Effort cup and certificate. 

Here are this week's winners. Well done - we are very proud of you all! 

EYFS: Little City

Excitement filled the hall last week as EYFS children explored Little City. We had doctors caring for the patients in the surgery, builders working on their next project, shop keepers and restaurant owners working together to supply food and much, much more! 

What a fantastic opportunity for our little ones to use their imagination and work creatively with their friends!    

Year 1: Music

To match the wild weather we have had this week, Year 1 have been learning to play, 'Rain, Rain Go Away' on the Glockenspiels. We explored the different pitch we can create using longer and shorter notes before performing the short piece within our classes. 

Some super musical performances, Year 1! Well done! 

Reception: Police Visit

Reception have been learning about people who help us in our community. 

Yesterday, we were lucky enough to have a visit from PC Edwards. He told us about the vehicles which police officers use to get around and the equipment they use such as a baton and handcuffs. He even let us try on a hat and a police jacket! PC Edwards demonstrated how the handcuffs can be used to detain someone in a pretend scenario where he arrested the teachers! 
What a perfect way to bring our topic to life!
