Indian Visitors

User Rating:  / 0

In Reception this week we have been showing off our singing and dancing skills.

As part of the Indian visitors assembly, we sang songs from our class assemblies. RG sang You Are My Shineshine and RHC sang The Rainbow Song, each class did a little dance during their songs.

Although RD didn't sing a song, they had possibly the most important role. Children from RD presented our visitors with gifts from the year group. The gifts included school bags, school water bottles and uniquely designed flower pots (which were made as part of our Business Enterprise Products.)

We also had an enjoyable week practising a money skills!

As part of My Money Week and Business Enterprise we looked at giving change. We got to play shops and buy different toys from our friends in exchange for money.

We all know the importance of understanding money so this week really gave us a chance to develop our coin recognition.

1960's Day

User Rating:  / 0

What a fantastic day we have had!  Our clothes ranged from flower power through to spacemen.

We learnt all about the 1960's through our Maths lesson by creating a number line of events. Here are some of the facts we learnt:

    1960 when Lego first came to Britain.

    1962 Andy Warhol exhibits "Campbell's Soup Can."  We talked about who Andy Warhol was and how he was mentioned in the recent film Men in Black 3.

    1965 is when Mary Quant featured the mini skirt in a fashion show

    1969 American astronaut Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. (Of course we already knew that fact!)

Throughout the day we listened to music from the 1960's, including Dusty Springfield, Monster Mash, Elvis Presley and the music from Hairspray the Musical.

We all think it was a great experience!

Wow what a fantastic week Reception have had!

We launched our new topic 'Mini-beasts' by going out into our beautiful grounds to search for hidden mini-beasts. The children have been very excited and surprised with all the bugs they have been able to find.

Mrs Hawksworth and Mrs Lyndon kindly gave up their time to create a bug hotel with the children across the year group. Take some time with your child to have a look at our super 5* hotel, fit for royalty. (Outside RHC).

On Thursday the children embarked on their very first school trip to Umberslade Farm. We all had a super day, feeding the lambs and goats, holding rats, rabbits and chicks and even catching our very own hens! We were all very brave and well behaved and the teachers were very proud of the children for representing our school so well!

Many thanks for your continued support

Whole School Science Day

User Rating:  / 0

Wednesday saw us in a whole school 'Mad Science' assembly. It was very exciting and there were lots of amazing experiments. We then went back to class and carried out our own experiments.

In RD the children used construction and different materials to make bridges, we had to think about what would make the bridge strong and whether it could hold a car or a person............

RG experimented with water; how to make the best bubbles and what objects would float and sink.

In RHC it was all about Colour, mixing primary colours, putting colour in the water for plants to see what happens.

We also had a visit from the Paramedics who told us all about their busy jobs and then let us sit on the Ambulance. We realised that there is nothing to be scared of, it was a bit like a Camper Van!!

Unfortunately the computer is a bit under the weather today so pictures will follow next week.
