Animation with Jim

Today pupils and staff in Year One and Two had a fantastic day with Jim (Creative Schools), developing their animation skills through the use of the app imotion. The children worked in groups to create animations of animals from specific habitats. Pupils produced their own backgrounds and then created their own animations. Their animations can be viewed in their shared files of their Hwb accounts. 

Fairtrade Visit to Co-op

On Friday 9th March, pupils from years One and Two visited the Co-op in Knighton to learn about fairtrade. Co-op staff told the pupils about fairtrade and we then went looking for fairtrade items around the store.

The children were also given a piece of fruit to take back to school. Yummy! SAM_9757 SAM_9758 SAM_9756

Physical Literacy

Pupils in Year One and Two enjoyed their first physical literacy session with Jody Owen, developing skills such as throwing and catching. The teachers loved observing the session, gaining ideas for future PE work and watching the children work so hard! SAM_9528 SAM_9529 SAM_9531 SAM_9535

Santa pays us a visit!

What a magical afternoon for the Foundation Phase children today! All the children have been so good this year that Santa dropped by to ask everyone what they wanted for Christmas this year. The children were so excited. One child said “I know it’s the real Santa because I heard the bang on the school roof when the sleigh landed.” Truly magical!

Germs!

Today, Emma, the school nurse visited our classes. She taught us how to wash our hands carefully so that we stop the spreading of germs. She put some ‘friendly germs’ on our hands and we saw them glow under her magic lamp. We are all going to make sure we wash our hands thoroughly from now on! DSC03173 DSC03174 DSC03175

Science Day!

What an amazing day! The children were so excited to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world through four very exciting and different scientific challenges.

The pupils explored electricity through making circuits that made bulbs glow and buzzers buzz.

Volcanoes erupted in the classroom through mixing different materials together.

The children loved seeing forces at work by dropping materials off the pirate ship and timing how quickly they fell.

Pupils made boats from tin foil and tested whether they could float in the water tray.

A fun filled day with lots of new scientific learning! DSC03130 DSC03131 DSC03132 DSC03133 DSC03134 DSC03135 DSC03136 DSC03137 DSC03138 DSC03139
