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’!

Poppy Appeal

School Parliament have had an excellent first day collecting donations to raise money for the Royal British Legion, supporting this years Poppy Appeal. 

Real PE

In our PE session this week, we started to work on developing combinations of movement. We focused on competitive jumping and working with a partner to develop a personal best. Whales class worked really hard to support their partner with lots of encouragement!
