What wonderful home learning!

We were so amazed by the fantastic pieces of home learning done by Beech class this weekend, we just had to put them on the blog. We loved the variety and creativity of the different pieces and have put them up on display in our classroom for everyone to see. Have a look below at our great work!

KS2 Dodgeball Event

Well done to KS2 for a super dodgeball event, great enthusiasm and enjoyment was shown by all. Thank you very much to the sports council for refereeing so well and helping the younger team members. We left the field alone- Y5/6 played on KS2 playground, Y3/4 in the hall and outside on KS1 playground. A great morning had by all! The photos below illustrate this.

Junior Challenge at Cassiobury park

A group of children from Tanners Wood took part in a run around Cassiobury park to help raise money for the Peace Hospice. Amy and Luke ran as representatives of KS2 and William, Freddie and Max ran as representative s of KS1. 

We have since been informed that William, Freddie and Max came third overall in the race as a Tanners Wood team! 

Well-done and rthank you for raising money! 



Y5 cross country county run!

On Saturday 24th March at 10am, five Y5’s competed in the county final at Cassiobury park. It was rather damp and cold but we were very excited to take part. There were children who were part of competitive running clubs there so tension was high! They ran with great confidence and did themselves proud. Well done Zoe, Toby, Ben C, Kyle and Jacob. 

Jacob came second in the boys race and Ben C, Toby and Kyle came in the twenties out of fifty boys. Well done all! We are very proud!

A super well done to Zoe, our only girl representative, who came in the twenties out of fifty girls. Well done! 





Sports Relief…and potatoes.

What a great day full of exercise and dancing. We boogied, did the conga and the mashed potato. We learnt some new songs and enjoyed moving to the rhythms. Thank you for all the kind donations to the sport relief fund, it will really make a difference to so many lives.

On another note, we have entered the Abbots Langley Gardening Society annual potato growing challenge this year and we are determined to win. We have to grow as many potatoes as we can, starting with just one seed potato. The winners will be announced at the Abbots Langley show. We will keep you updated with our potatoes as they grow. Wish us luck!

What would have happened…?

This week we have been looking at the story of the Gingerbread man. We talked about the part when he has to cross the river on the fox’s back and how the fox tricks him into getting nearer his mouth by telling him he might get wet. We were wondering what would have happened if he had got wet? So of course, we did an experiment. 

We tested out different liquids like milk, water and golden syrup and dunked some biscuits into them to see what would happen. They all took different amounts of time to disintegrate and it was interesting to see that not all the liquids caused the biscuits to break down.
