Virtual Archery Competition

 

This morning, both Palm and Willow participated in a virtual archery competition across school. The children were split into 4 groups and shot 10 arrows in total- each child was responsible for adding up their own scores. We are waiting patiently to see where we place against the other classes! 

Smelly Sewers!

 

We had a great live virtual session with Severn Trent @stwater this afternoon. We learnt all about toilets, drains and sewage!

Anti-Bullying Week 2020

 

We kickstarted our week by joining in with Odd Socks Day. The theme this year is 'United against bullying'.

Children in Need

 

We did lots of different activities on Friday to support Children in Need. Joe Wicks completed his 24 hour workout and we joined him for the final 20 minutes. We played games and took part in the Pudsey Ramble. We also spent some time finding out more about Children in Need and reflected on our own lives.

Poetry - The Magic Box and The Door

 

The children worked very hard to create their own poems inspired by 'The Magic Box' and 'The Door'. They then presented their work for display in the library.

Palm Class Topic Launch Day- Go with the Flow

 

It was lovely to be back in school today, especially being able to launch our new geography topic. We had a fun and busy day, which included located the rivers in the World and UK, making and playing our own Rivers Top Trumps cards, and working together to solve a tricky river problem. We will start with rivers and end with rainforests. 

Willow Class Topic Launch Day - Go with the Flow!

 

It was great to be back in school today, especially with our water themed dress code! We had a fun day to start our new topic, which included locating rivers in the World and the UK, making our own Top Trumps cards, playing team games and solving a river problem. We will continue the topic, starting with rivers and ending with rainforests.

Red Cross - Basic First Aid

 

Over the last few weeks, both Willow and Palm class have been learning about the work of The British Red Cross, including basic first aid skills. They have produced mini guides with the key steps needed.

Our Positive Pebbles

 

As a school, we wanted to celebrate the fact that we are back together after being separated by lockdown. Our Positive Pebbles show that, although things are still a challenge, we can get through it together.
