Exciting Eruptions in Whales Class

Whales have designed and constructed model volcanoes, powered by a pneumatic systems! We tested them and found some success and some areas for improvement! This was an exciting end to our volcanoes topic this term, which the class has really enjoyed.

Spring Watercolours

The children enjoyed painting daffodils using watercolours.

Celebrating Talent

We love to celebrate the gifts and talents that children develop in activities outside of school. We were so proud of Sophia who qualified for the Nationals in Baton Twirling. She demonstrated her competition routine to the whole school. Well done Sophia!

World Book Day

This half term has been short yet jam packed! 

Earlier in March we celebrated World Book Day with shared reading of younger and older children, a book quiz and making potato characters.

Easter Service

Yesterday we held our whole school Easter Service in the hall. All three classes shared their learning about Easter from the RE day on Monday, through poems, craft, drama and prayers. Rev Sally joined us to finish our service with a short talk and prayers. Well done to the children and a big thank you to parents who came to join in and support the children.

Sheep RE Day

Today we learnt even more about Easter! Our focus was ‘Why do Christians put a cross in an Easter garden?’ We learnt about Holy Week, the importance of Palm Sunday and Good Friday. Sheep retold parts of the Easter story, we then made our own Easter gardens. Finally, we learnt about why we share Easter eggs, its not just because we love chocolate! We learnt that an egg symbolises new life. After designing our own eggs, we then went on an Easter Egg hunt!

Whale RE Day

25th March 2024

The big question – Why is Easter important to Christians? 

We had a really busy day and learnt a lot.

We started the day with an Easter story pass the parcel to learn about the key events.

We then walked to the St Mary’s Church where we were met by Reverend Sally who talked to us about Holy week.  We listened to the story of the last supper and joined Reverend Sally at the altar table to find out about the Eucharist.  

We all explored the Church and completed some rubbings and sketches of some of the church.  We also made a palm cross and looked at the Easter garden.

In the afternoon we tried a hot cross bun, looked at the similarities and differences between a christian in England and Christian in Jerusalem, retold the Easter story by making an Easter spinner and wrote an acrostic poem.

Some of the words the children described the day were Рpeaceful, calm, fascinating and interesting.

Gymnasts in the making!

Sheep class have loved their Gymnastics sessions this half term. Firstly, we started with floor work; focusing on making shapes with our bodies. We then applied this shape work to low apparatus and then the large apparatus. The children have been perfecting their balancing, jumping and climbing skills over the last few weeks and have really built up their confidence.

Playground Games

Mr Massey from Playground Playtimes, worked with each class and trained some of our Year 5 and 6 pupils to be playground leaders. We look forward to setting up the games the children learnt in school to use in the playground! 

A wonderful Welly Day in Sheep Class

Sheep Class had a beautiful morning today as the sun shone on our Welly Day and we were finally able to access the site without being bogged down by mud!  

All of the adults were so impressed by how well the children worked together.  

Across the site they could be seen writing, playing together, solving problems both as a team and on their own, having fun with their friends and enjoying a quiet time in nature.
