Whales Welly Day

Whales had a fantastic Welly Day session; we thoroughly enjoyed testing out the shaduf we made in an earlier session, we also got creative with clay! The children have grown in confidence to assess risks and keep themselves safe. 

North Elmham Go Glam for Children in Need!

North Elmham has sparkled today! Well done to all of the children for putting in so much effort, we raised lots of money for Children in Need. A big round of applause to our fabulous ‘Bake off’ and ‘Dance off’ winners too! A truly wonderful day had by all raising funds for a great cause. 

Real PE in Whales Class

Another fantastic PE session! This week we worked on 2-feet to 2-feet jumping and landing with balance and control. We then applied this to a river crossing game. We worked in small teams, ensuring we listened to each other and showed perseverance as the level of challenge increased!

History in Whales Class

This week we have been learning how to write like an Ancient Egyptian! As well as learning about hieroglyphics and the many symbols and pictures they used, we also learnt about the Rosetta stone and being a scribe! We read and wrote our own secret messages. We then made our very own Cartouches out of clay! 

Open the Book

Open the Book led Collective Worship and told us the story of Adam and Eve. We enjoyed excellent storytelling with wonderful props and singing! A great start to our week. 

Remembrance Day

Today we marked Remembrance Day in school and at Church. It was wonderful to be back at St Mary’s church! Our children led the service alongside Revd Sally. We shared readings, poems, songs and prayers.

Science in Whales class this week – Digestion

In Science, we asked ‘What happens to the food we eat?’ We started to find out about the process of digestion. We learnt about functions of the parts of the digestive system, created a model to demonstrate the journey of food through the body and then used our new knowledge to label a diagram and describe what happens during each part of the process. 

Collective Worship

Revd Sally joined us today for Collective Worship. We continued to talk about the Creation story and then discussed COP26 and the impact of Climate Change. We shared ways we could make small changes in our community too! 

Uncovering the Gunpowder Plot – History in sheep class this week

To begin our new unit of history this term, Sheep class played detectives and used evidence from the past to discover what happened on November the 5th, 1605. They looked at lots of paintings, drawings and artifacts to discover that a man named Guy Fawkes and his gang went about trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament! The children were fantastic at finding the clues, and we’re looking forward to discovering more about who was involved, why they did it, and why we still ‘Remember, Remember, the 5th of November’!
