Sensational Sunflowers

This week the Reception children have been learning all about flowers, and how they grow. They have looked at lots of different types of flowers, and discovered that they start off as a tiny seed, which grows in the ground, and eventually turns into a lovely flower.

To help the children understand how it works, they have been planting their very own sunflowers. Firstly, they had to put some soil into a cup. Then, they put the seed into the soil. The children then used a watering can to water the soil, because the seeds need water in order to grow! Finally, the children put their sunflower cups in the window sill so that they can absorb lots of sunlight, because they also need sunshine to grow. We are really excited about our sunflowers, and we will check on them every day to see if they are growing!

Year 5 Fun Run

Year 5 are always eager to help come rain or shine! Today, they took part in a ‘Fun Run’ (organised by the School Council) not only to keep fit and healthy but to also help raise money to buy things for their school. They thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this activity and were keen to keep tabs on the number of laps they had completed. Some chose to run, whilst others were happy to walk. We were really pleased with their enthusiasm and spirit. Well done to you all!!!

 

Creating Our Own Snacks!

This week, despite their jam-packed schedule, the children in Nursery have managed to sandwich in some time for a snack. However, they didn’t have their usual apples, pears or bananas – they made their own jam sandwiches! After reading The Little Red Hen, the children were inspired to help each other with each step of the process. First, they had to spread some margarine on their slice of bread. Then, they had the option of adding some delicious strawberry jam, before folding it over, carefully cutting it in half with a knife, and finally eating it. Yummy!

6DM Amazing Americas Project

Now that Year 6 are approaching their final few weeks, we challenged them to a project based on our ‘Amazing Americas’ topic. They were asked to research a country from South America and display their information for the rest of the class to see.

Each group researched the human and physical features of their country, as well as their cultures and traditions. They also researched how rivers work. They then put all of their findings together and presented them on the colourful display boards you can see below.
