When I was seven
adapted from When I was six, ByA.A.Milne
When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
When I was six,
I played lots of tricks.
But now I am seven,
I'm as clever as ever.
So I think I'll be seven
now and forever.
Come and discover the wonderful activities and lessons the children have been taking part in.
Next week will be the Easter holidays and so instead of setting work tasks for this week we have 100 different activities for you to do at home! We hope you are enjoying yourselves and finding plenty of different things to do. Remember to take some pictures of yourself doing some of the different activities and send them in so we can put them on our page. Your friends will love to see what you are all getting up to. You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have lots of fun doing them and stay safe!
The children love learning music at school and now they can at home too! Use your own login details from the folder and follow this link to Charanga Yumu to get started - have fun!

Today we were visited by Maddi and Katie from St George's Church. They came into our RE lesson to discuss our OLQ 'How do Christians show their belief in Jesus during Easter?'
From this visit, the children have gained the knowledge of the three main events.
1) Lent to get ready for Easter
2) To welcome Jesus
3) Celebrate Easter Sunday
The children carried out a range of activities to help with their understanding. Take a look!

To celebrate World Book Day this year, we all came into school wearing our pyjamas. We got to bring in and share our favourite stories and books with our friends and we were visited by Jonah from Seven Stories. After he had spoken to us about our favourite authors and books, he read us some stories. As one of our activities, we designed our own tiger masks to represent the character of the tiger from Tiger Child.

Creating an ideal community!
Within our PSHE+C lesson this week, the children have worked in groups to answer questions, plan and design their own ideal community. The children had to take into account if they wanted their communities to be Urban, Suburban or Rural. This is what they came up with!

That History Bloke and Florence Nightingale
That History Bloke, Richard, visited us this morning to tell us all about Miss Florence Nightingale. He showed us some interesting artefacts that would have been used by Florence when she was a nurse in Scutari Hospital. Richard left us to go back in time and he managed to find Florence Nightingale and bring her back to school for us to talk to! We were SO excited because we had lots of questions to ask her. She told us about some of the jobs the nurses had to do back then and we got to try some of them out. We helped fold washing and experienced what it would be like to bandage a soldier!

We have started Reading for Pleasure during Guided Reading time. We like to get a reading buddy out so we can share our stories with them. We've had great fun and can't wait to start writing some book reviews.

Within our RE lessons we have been learning about the Hindu religion and what it teaches its followers. We learnt about the Diwali celebration, trying on some traditional clothing and sample foods eaten within the celebration!
This week we had visitors from NSPCC. They talked to us about being safe and who we can go to with a problem, whether it be big or small. We all got to meet Buddy and gave him a high five before he left!
We learnt about why we celebrate Remembrance Day and made poppies to help us remember.
We have been looking at Traditional Tales. For our, fine motor we looked at lots of different activities related to our characters and story.
We got outside for PE this week and learn about changing directions whilst moving in different ways. We were pretty good at it so got to play a game of rabbits at the end.
We have been learning about the importance of a balanced diet in Science and so we tested out some different fruits to see which ones were our favourites. We got to try passion fruit, mango, lemon and dates. We thought they all looked strange but we all tried them.
This week we had a special visitor in school - David Smith. He told us all about how he competes in the high jump and showed us some videos of how high he can jump. He gets to travel all around the world competing and we can't wait for him to get to the Olympics!
We have been trying out lots of different Art skills this half term and this week we were blowing paint. We had great fun and made a great mess but our plates look great.
Today we raised money for Macmillan by bringing in a £1 donation. We don't mind eating cake if it helps other people!
Wow! We had such a great time with That History Bloke and learnt loads about The Great Fire of Gateshead. We even got to go to the Baltic to look at all the bridges along the River Tyne.
In PE we are lucky enough to have a coach to teach us gymnastics! This week we started to learn how to do rolls, cartwheels and even handstands.
