No Pens Wednesday

The children had a wonderful day today celebrating No Pens Wednesday. The focus of our day was to improve our speaking and listening skills, in particular learning new vocabulary.

Everyone came dressed as their favourite words, which they shared in a special assembly where prizes were given to the best or most creative outfits. The children then spent the rest of the day taking part in exciting activities without putting any pen to paper! Some of the exciting activities included sign-language spelling, poetry performances, outdoor maths investigations and even experiencing what it was like to be a child evacuated in World War 2. Later in the day the children had a chance to take part in a show and tell activity where they shared a special item, photo or memory from home.

We would like to thank all of the parents and children for putting in such a fantastic effort into creating your costumes and bringing in special items from home to share with everybody. Your continued support is much appreciated.

Keep your eye out for photo updates!

Autumn Walk!

Children in Reception have been learning about autumn. They went on a walk to see the signs of autumn, they were excited about what they could see. The children were very observant and noticed that the leaves were not green anymore but had changed colour to yellow, red and brown. They talked about how the trees had become bare. Here are a few pictures from our walk.

Splendid Skies

Year one students took to the skies last Tuesday to learn about wind! They showcased their kite flying skills to look at the direction of the wind as well as conditions which make great kite flying. As part of our topic children also looked at a wind sock which shows the direction of the wind as well as how windy it is. They discussed the Beaufort scale used to measure the strength of the wind and its direction. As part of the science curriculum children have discussed which material would be best for making their own kite. There were smiles all round as each child had a turn at flying a kite.
