The ENORMOUS turnip

This term has started with a little drama ! We are working hard to practise for our class assembly and we have been listening to and retelling traditional tales. Today we worked on the Enormous turnip. We had a brilliant time re-enacting the story.

We PULLED and PULLED and PULLED

then out it popped !!

 

Dodgeball

 

We had a brilliant inter house championship yesterday playing Dodgeball across Key Stage 1.  All the children worked hard to play as a team but Jupiter emerged as the winners at the end of the tournament.

Mothers’ Day

This afternoon we had our Mothers’ Day Service followed by tea and cakes for our families. We have enjoyed making flowers for our mothers this week and practising our handwriting to write our messages.

We have started to think about instruction writing and in maths we have been looking at number bonds to 10 and 20.     

Sponsored dance

We started the morning with a collective worship learning about St Patrick.  Then we have had lots of fun with our sponsored dance for the NSPCC.  Just look at our moves!   Don’t forget to bring sponsor money in on Monday.

Super scientists

We are making new habitats for our Bog Babies and decided we needed to make their homes special and safe.  The children were concerned about the Bog Babies after their stormy adventures and wanted to ensure that their homes were waterproof too. We investigated different materials for the roof and tested which let water through.

In in the end we found the plastic materials were best as they were waterproof.

NSPCC

We had a special assembly this morning from the NSPCC who talked to the children about keeping safe and speaking out about anything that is worrying them. They discussed Childline and launched the upcoming sponsored danceathon. Please have a look in book bags for the leaflet and sponsor form. These need to be back by Monday 20th March.
