Months of planning and preparation involving all year groups across Tanners Wood school came together this weekend to create an amazing float all about Paddington 2. Well done and thank you to all involved, particularly the Year 2 parents who have given up so much of their time to make everything happen and to the stars of the show – the children who were part of the parade. We are proud to have won the award for ‘Best use of recycled materials’!
Ash and Beech class had been talking about how the sun can create shadows. We went out about 10am and drew around each others shadows. We also drew around some toy animals and left them outside. We then went back out at different times of the day to see if the length or position of the shadows had changed. We discovered that they had changed. Can you remember why?
Firstly, thank you for all your donations of 2L plastic bottles. We have been busy using them to put our greenhouse together with the help of Eco Club. We have completed one side of roof which takes 95 bottles! We need more donations and if anyone would be willing to come in and help after school one day please let the office know.
Also, please could we have no more milk bottles. Thank you again for your support.
This week Ash class performed their assembly to Nursery and Ks1. The children worked extremely hard to learn their lines and words to the songs. They enjoyed sharing their favourite topics and showcasing their fantastic learning! Well done Ash class!
The children enjoyed a whole school history show which used drama and comedy to bring history to life in a fun and engaging way. The children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the performance.
Ash and Beech class have started gardening again. Thank you for all the donations of seeds, they have been put to good use. We have recently had a new greenhouse frame built. We still need more 2L plastic bottles and garden canes to finish it.
This year we are hoping to grow potatoes, French beans, broccoli, squash, lettuce, cauliflower and radishes.
If you have any suggestions to keep cats and foxes away from our garden we would really appreciate it. We are having to cover them with canes and tarpaulin but once the seeds start growing they will need more light. We were thinking some netting would be helpful, if anyone has any then please let one of us know. 😃
Ash class have enjoyed the new ‘Busy Fingers’ activity outside. They have also been outside for some maths this week alongside Beech. The activities completed were; measuring how far a paper aeroplane flew, counting how many cars could be raced down a drainpipe in 1 minute, rolling a movement and number dice and exploring shapes using a range of objects. Why not have a go at home.
Here are the winners for KS1, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6. Daisy from Beech was the EYFS winner. Well done to everyone for a great effort with this homework, as a whole staff we were very impressed!
Phonics sounds for this week are below. ‘ur’, ‘ow’ ,’oi’. If you have been having problems with the videos working, please let your class teacher know and we can email them to you.
The scene is set! We are ready to take delivery of our book fair on Monday! We will be open straight after school all week. Monday will be in Larch Class and then in the hall for the remainder of the week. Come and support us, keep your children reading and help raise funds for our school library!
