We spent today taking part in a range of outdoor learning activities and we had so much fun. We cut up fruit, bread and cheese ourselves and made delicious bird kebabs for the birds who visit our school to enjoy. We can't wait to see what has been eaten over the next few days! We also worked in pairs to make wind chimes with sticks we found in our Forest School area!

Today, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from a world class athlete called David who competes in the high jump. We participated in a tough circuit this morning, which tested our fitness levels, and then listened to David talk about himself and how he became an athlete in our whole school assembly!

Today, the bus bus visited our school and we had so much fin visiting and purchasing books! Take a look!
Super Solar Systems!
Wednesday 2nd October 2019
This week we created our own solar systems using balloons and tissue paper to decorate them. We had to really think about the sizes we were blowing up each balloon to make sure each balloon represented each planet successfully. We know Saturn and Jupiter are the biggest planets so those balloons took the most breath!!
Fabulous Fine Motor!

Look at our amazing Art Collage work we have been doing to improve our fine motor skills! We each made our collage very personal and had so much fun creating them!

Today we were looking at rounding numbers in Maths. We worked on some problem solving questions in groups where we were dealing with numbers up to ONE MILLION! How amazing are we?! Our knowledge of place value has improved greatly after all our hard work over the past few weeks!
Ancient Maya Workshop
Friday 13th September 2019
We had an absolutely fantastic morning with our visitor (Jo Bath), learning about the ancient Maya. We dressed up, played games and even tried some of the food the Maya would have eaten such as pure chocolate and papaya!
We learnt so much and can't wait to work through the rest of our History topic!
