The last few weeks, all children in KS1 have been practising summer songs during singing assemblies. We have really enjoyed learning these songs so we thought it would be a good idea to show you. Have a look below at our summer song performance, we hope you enjoy!
This afternoon, we finally finished our sewing work. I have been amazed at the independence and resilience the children have shown in order to master running stitch. Have a look below to see their work.
Last week, we started to learn how to sew by practising running stitch. The last two lessons have consisted of learning how to thread a needle with some wool and then using needle to weave the wool through some rug hooking canvas. To say some children had never sewed before, I was really impressed with how quickly they picked it up. Now we have practised running stitch, the children will begin to create a piece of work in the coming lessons. Have a look of the work the children have produced so far.
This morning, the Y1s, Y2s and the Y5s have completed a den building activity that focused on teamwork, resilience and communication. Their aim was to make the most stable and waterproof den as a group. All the children worked very well together and never gave up even when they were finding it challenging. At the end, each den was tested to see how waterproof they were by throwing water over them whilst each team was inside. All the children were brilliant this morning and they really enjoyed themselves. Have a look below to see the children in action.
This half term, we have been looking at creating moving pictures using different mechanisms. We first looked at a slider and lever mechanism using pictures from different fairytale stories to help us. For our final piece of work, we designed, drew and created our own moving picture based on the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. I have to say now they are all completed, I am really impressed with all the moving pictures the children have made. Have a look below to have a look at some of our moving pictures.
Today, we have completed our sports day. Each class across FS2 and key stage one completed three different races. A sprint, a class race and a relay. Once all the races had been completed, the scores had been counted up and the winning team was the blues. Well done to all the children that took part, you should be really proud of yourselves!
This afternoon, we also finished our seaside/lighthouse inspired collage artwork that we started before the holidays. The children have worked really hard to create this piece of work and I have to say they all look amazing. Have a look below to have a look at their work.
Today, the children completed their final performance to Hush Little Baby. The children were encouraged to use the instruments and move to the pulse of the music. Have a look below to see how they got on.
Today, year 1 visited Wigfield Farm to learn more about animals. During our visit, the children had the opportunity to go around the farm and feed some of the animals. We saw some animals such as farm animals, llamas, geese, guinea pigs, meerkats and a range of birds. In the afternoon, the children went into the reptile room where they had the opportunity to hold a snake. The children have really enjoyed our visit and the children were fantastic the whole day. Have a look below to see some pictures of our visit.
This week in maths, we are going to be looking at capacity. For today's lesson, we looked at a range of bottles and decided whether they were full, nearly full, half full, nearly empty and empty. We then ordered the bottles from empty to full and explained why for each of them. Finally in groups, we went around the classroom and labelled the bottles using the focus key words. I would like to thank everyone who donated the bottles as it made sure the children were able to have a fun lesson today. Have a look below to see what happened.
