What a very informative day we have had in Year 1 today! We could not believe it when we came in after our break and there was a sea in our classroom that was full of amazing animals, but was also full of very dangerous pieces of plastic! As we learnt more about where the plastic had come from and the impact that it had on ocean life it made us very sad and so see what we have done about it in our blog.
What a fantastic morning we all had in Year One this morning. We had lots of amazing adults in the classroom to help us and they saw how well we have all settled in. It was great to show everyone what super independent learners we are. Thank you to all of those adults that came and well done to all of the children! I cannot wait to display our wonderful Mr and Mrs Potato Heads. Please look at our blog to see our hard work.
Today Year Three have visited Wild Wood where they became cave men and women for the day! We started our day by using tree branches and leaves to create a shelter…I was very impressed by the children’s building skills so it was impossible to choose a winning shelter! The children were very excited to make and fire their very own bow and arrow made from the branch of a willow tree- just like the Stone Age people would have needed to do when hunting. It was also a lot of fun to warm ourselves up with a hot chocolate by the camp fire. We were then super detectives, foraging for food like crab apples, blackberries and nettles. We were shocked to learn that people a long time ago might have eaten nettles! In the afternoon, we learned how to make fire using flint and the whole class managed to set a piece of cotton wool on fire! Thank you for a lovely day Year Three!
These are our (mostly) completed scultpures made using modrock, art straws, scrap paper, corks and ping pong balls. Some children have made a sculpture to commemorate our Sports Week and some made World Cup trophys. The children thought carefully about how to make their sculptures special, including a football to show that 2018 was the year of the World Cup and including wedding archways to show that it was the year of a royal wedding! We hope you like our work!
We have been thinking about the World Cup and our Sports Week! We decided that our Sports Week was so fantastic that it needed a sculpture to commemorate the event! We designed our sculptures ourselves, chose our own materials and worked completely independently to create our sculpture.
What an amazing day we had at Twycross Zoo on Wednesday. We saw lots of amazing animals and created some wonderful memories. All of the children were so well behaved and we were very proud of them all. Look at our video to see what happened!
On Friday afternoon, we had lots of very brave Year Three children who climbed the climbing wall! We were impressed by how everyone joined in even if they were scared! The children all had big, beautiful smiles and thery were all very grateful for the experience! It was a pleasure to take you out for a fun-filled afternoon!
The fun continued!! We were very lucky to have a Muay Thai lesson this afternoon! As I’m sure you can tell from the video, there were lots of smiley faces and children who were very excited to learn the Thai boxing moves!
We have had an incredibly fun morning visiting the Cricket Cave in Burslem! The children really enjoyed completing the various activities at Cricket Cave and I was impressed by their accuracy when striking a ball and when bowling at a target! There are definitely some future cricketers in our class!
We have had lots of fun already this week! Yesterday we were very lucky to have a member of the Stoke Spitfires teach us how to play wheelchair basketball! There were lots of smiley faces as we rode our wheel chairs across the hall and tried to throw the ball into the hoop! We were all very competitive and the sound of cheering could be heard in Mrs Frost’s room!
