And so to the end of term…

We only have four more days to go until the end of term and the end of year. We are all very excited about the new academic year after Moving on Morning, Monday.

(I am also very excited and emotional because this is my last year as a teacher at Woodborough School. After 19 fantastic years, I am retiring. I am looking forward to lots of new adventures but I will most definitely be keeping in touch. I would just like to say what a wonderful teaching career I have had at Woodborough. I feel blessed and privileged to have been part of such an amazing school and team.  I will miss you all very much….go Woodborough- keep working that magic!)

Back to Sycamore Class, we have completed final Rainbow Awards – congratulations to Esmee, Henry, Reauben and especially to Griff who is the first of us to achieve the Blue Award. Since Tuesday we have been having fun in maths, looking at more magic numbers

and playing with Polydron to make amazing 3D shapes.

We have also had our final Woodland Walk where we had a go at bird spotting (George’s daddy thought he saw a peregrine falcon and Griff’s mummy heard a cuckoo!) the rest of us heard some very noisy chickens,birds singing and we saw pigeons and crows.😄🐥🦅🐔

We then listened to a story and then had a go at lashing sticks together to make little stick men or our initials…

Some of us decorated them with leaves and grasses.

As a final treat we had 🥤 and 🍪 .

Once  again, thank you to all the parents that came along.

Well here’s to a great final four days. They are going to be very busy and exciting ones for all of us and then I wish everyone a very happy and safe Summer Holiday! 🏖

 

A fortnight of sport…

On Wednesday 3rd July two coaches from Pewsey Tennis Club came to Woodborough. Sycamore were ready to go at 9am and had a fantastic half an hours coaching… Wimbledon here we come!

This Wednesday was our sports day and again Sycamore displayed some fantastic sporting talents.  Both KS2 and KS1 sports began with a dance performance and fifteen children from Sycamore class were involved in this.

Well done to Venus who only just beat Mercury! And of course everyone tried their very best and were great sports.

To complete the sporty fortnight we had our KS1 inter -house Kick Rounders competition on Friday. We do not know the winners yet, as the points from this will be added to KS2 and Oak Class points to give us our final winners.

Back in class we have been looking at money and time in maths…

We can now recognise all the coins and notes, find some amounts and some of us can work out change too! We also know the days of the week, months of the year and seasons and can tell the o’clock and half past times.

We have nearly completed our All Things Bright and Beautiful topic. We have sorted animals into: mammals, reptiles, birds, fish and amphibians. We talked about other categories we could include, like insects or mini beasts.

We then sorted animals by what they eat:

Carnivores  – eat meat                        Herbivores – eat plants                            Omnivores – eat both

In Art we have been drawing our class animals…

We have moving on morning on Monday – when we will all be working in Maple class for the morning, with Mrs Johanson. In the afternoon we are looking forward to seeing the dress rehearsal of Oh What a Knight! the KS2 summer performance.
