This afternoon year 3 travelled to St Catherine’s school to take part in a fun run. The children all showed great determination and sportsmanship. Congratulations to Lola who came 3rd in the girls race and to Freddie and Zac who came 1st and 2nd in the boys race, both across all three schools. Well done everyone!
Apple Nursery have been enjoying learning about ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ this week. We made and tasted porridge, dressed up and used the role-play area to re-tell the story. Everyone created a picture from Goldilocks for Baby Bear to say sorry for eating his porridge and breaking his chair.
Today Larch class had the exciting opportunity to take part in a robotics workshop. We learnt how to programme a micro-bit and all about input and output. Our behaviour was outstanding and we were all determined to complete lots of the challenges set for us.
As our text of the week was Mr Wolf’s Pancakes, we decided that it would be a good idea to make our own pancakes. Lots of the children had previously made pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, so were therefore able to talk about the ingredients we needed to use and instructions we needed to follow. We had lots of fun flipping the pancakes and adding our favourite toppings.
In English, we have been learning about instructions. Before we write our own, we decided to see how well we can follow a set of instructions ourselves! We followed the instructions carefully and in the correct order to make some paper daffodils and pinwheels. They look great!
On Tuesday, Year 1 went on a trip to Kew Gardens to learn all about plants. This is our science topic for the half term. We learnt about the different types of plants and trees as well as the different parts of a plant. We saw lots of cacti, palm trees and even a cocoa plant! We also had a competition to see who could find the biggest leaf!
Elm class participated in the KS1 ‘Dance Off’ and came second place! Well done everybody!!
Year 1 had a fantastic day out at Kew Gardens today! We saw lots of amazing plants and learnt all about how they grow.
Spruce class have been learning about light and refraction in science. We learnt that refraction is when light rays travel at different speeds through transparent materials such as glass and water; this causes the rays of light to bend.
We experimented using a picture and a glass. We drew a picture and placed it under the glass while slowly filling the glass with water. The picture seemed to disappear when we looked through the side of the glass.
