Well, what can I say? The children certainly did come with a smile to our end of term party. The chose to play sports, build dens, make campsites or to just simply chill in the sun!
Well done to all the children who took part in todays Sports Day. You all tried your best and we are very proud of you all!
Thank you also to the friends of school for the delicious ice cream.
Year 2 children enjoying their Tric a Chlic reading.
We spent the afternoon outdoor learning. We went for a walk and in our groups we carefully picked a selection of interesting leaves. We used our classification sheet to identify the leaves.
When we came back inside, we created some beautiful pieces of artwork by painting our leaves and printing with them.
The children enjoyed using their reading skills to follow instructions of how to make a symmetrical butterfly. They chose the shapes that they were going to use and cut them out carefully.
The children enjoyed a fantastic week of additional well-being activities with Miss Sally. They developed their cutting skills by creating beautiful caterpillars and collages of habitats; exercised by gardening, doing yoga, playing dodgeball and going on the bikes.
The children researched the lifecycle of a butterfly and in their groups created a dance to depict the life cycle.
We had a fantastic afternoon going on a mini-beast hunt. We thought carefully about the different mini beasts that we may be lucky to find on the school field and all of the micro-habitats that they may live in.
The children have enjoyed finding out about the festival of Ramadan and why it is so important in the Islamic faith.
