Welcome back to term 5. Our topic this term is called, 'Creepy Crawlies'. Have a look at our topic web.
All the FS children had a fantastic time during our science day. It was an adventure to travel round the different classrooms, and take part in the varied and exciting science investigations and experiments. We particularly enjoyed 'making blood' and dressing up to fight viral infections. We all had fun, but we also learnt lots.
A big thank you to the scientists for all their hard work, and for making our science day amazing.
We enjoyed making and eating (!) hot cross buns.
It is hard to believe that it is already term 4. This term our ‘theme’ is called,
‘Give Me Five!’ We will be finding out about healthy eating and exercise.
World Book Day
Despite the bitter cold weather, we were comfortable and warm in our pyjamas and onesies for World Book Day! We braved through the snow to the hall (slight exaggeration!) to take part in the Read Around. The children enjoyed listening to stories by different members of staff. Back in the classroom we had great fun sharing our books. It was a day to remember!
Although we were not in school for Shrove Tuesday we found out why Lent is important to Christians. We thought about what it would be hard to give up eating, (chocolate, crisps and chips!) and something (such as tidying up, being extra kind) that we could do ‘extra’ during Lent. We all enjoyed eating our pancakes.
This term we have been learning about homes, as well as having fun outside - in snow, rain and the sunshine!
We have all enjoyed another busy term.
Take a long at our photos. We started off the term with an African WOW day, which included an exciting African drumming workshop.
In November we made our own poppies and learnt why it is important to remember why people choose to wear poppies.
In December we enjoyed the unexpected snow fall and had great fun. For lots of the children, it was the first time they had seen snow.
The children all had great fun rehearsing and taking part in our school nativity, “Lights, Camel, Action!” We were all angels – of course!
We had a fantastic end of term with a workshop led by the author and illustrator Paul Geraghty. Paul talked to us about the different characters in his books, and told us stories. It was amazing to watch his drawings come to life. A day to remember!
We all enjoyed our visit to St Mary’s in September. The children (and teachers) always learn something new about our beautiful local church, and the Christian faith.
Thank you to Reverend David and Reverend Emma for giving up their time for us.
