Today, Year 5 have had a visit from Oli, an explorer who has ventured through the Arctic. Oli told us exactly what it was like to live in Arctic conditions and told us fascinating stories about how he and his team survived their great expedition! After finding out about him, the children were lucky enough to learn how animals keep themselves warm in Arctic conditions, create global awareness campaigns and produce art work for our environments.

The engagement from the children has been fantastic today!

Well done Year 5!

Chocolate ignite!

Today we had a visit from Mrs Fry who taught us all about chocolate. We learnt all about the history of chocolate and where chocolate comes from. Also we got to taste different chocolates – one was lemon flavour!! Everyone got to make their own chocolate lolly which was whatever shape we wanted. There were lollies of every shape – hearts,  stars,  trees and even crocodiles!

Can you guess what shape these chocolate lollies are?

Beach day!

To ignite the Year 2 lighthouse project we had a very exciting beach day! We came into school in beach clothes and made seagulls,  played in the sandpit and created videos. We even had an ice cream!

Here are some photos of our day. ..

3C Greek Ignite Day

Thank you to all of 3C who on Friday took part in our Greek Ignite Day. A fabulous time was had by all.

We learnt about the story of the battles in Ancient Greece as well as how to make bracelets, pots and mosaics. The children enjoyed making all their items and I hope you have now heard all about them.

The year 3 team are ready to start learning all about the Greeks 🙂

Thank you to all the parent support we received as well. We could not have done it without you. A big thank you for costumes too.

Miss Ahlrichs

Year 1 detectives solve a mystery!

On Friday when we returned from lunch Miss Draper’s chair had disappeared! All that was left were a few dusty hand and foot prints. We set about trying to solve the mystery and luckily for us some detectives came in to help us. They shared with us what they look at to solve mysteries. We learnt that we would need to look at hair and eye colour, height, hand and foot prints. To help us, we also made some magnifying glasses so we could look at clues up close. During the afternoon, the detectives sent through some additional clues. We now had a list of four possible people responsible. Looking carefully, we were able to identify a couple of the eyes and hair styles. By the end of the day we had discovered where Miss Draper’s chair had disappeared too!

Perhaps you can share your findings with your parents!

A mystery in Year 1

Today Year 1 had a surprise visit as part of their ignite for their ‘All About Me’ project. When the children came back from their lunch, they noticed that all of the teacher chairs had gone missing! We asked PC Ellmer and PC Dabnor to come in and talk to us about how they solve problems at a police station and used that to help us do some detective work! Throughout the afternoon, we found random clues which lead us to eventually solving our mystery of the missing chairs – Can your child remember who had borrowed our chairs and why?

 

Well done Year 1 for a fantastic day full of high learning zones!

Here are 1b showing off or engaging in their learning.
