Today we learnt all about how to prevent bullying in our school and how to be a good friend to others. We had a fun-packed day filled with lots of great activities! We all wore odd socks and talked about how everybody is different in their own way. We also designed our own socks! We then made friendship bracelets on which we wrote our ideas about how we can be a good friend. Lots of smiles and fun were had!
We started a new topic in DT today, it was great fun! We created sliding mechanisms. Here are some examples.
The children enjoyed discussing their achievements this half term with each other. Well done to all the children who attended. You have all worked really hard with your learning.
This week has been focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We have had lots of fun working with shapes and numbers in our maths lessons and thinking about how we can learn from our mistakes. We also practiced our coding skills in computing. Our science project for this week has been all about how green screens are used in films. To test this out, we made our own green screen puppet movies!
For the next week Elm class will be looking at the story ‘Bog Baby’. We have made our own bog babies and will be thinking about how we can look after them.
Book Exchange returns next week! Years 4-6 will be in Monday afternoon and EYFS up to Year 3 will be on Wednesday. Children need to bring in a book, leave it in their bag and then when called they will have the chance to go to the dining room and exchange for a new one! Simple!
On Sunday 6th October , over 80 pupils and parents took part in the 1k, 3k, 5k or 10k runs around Abbots Langley. It was an amazing turn out and fabulous to see so many green shirts! We have, for the 3rd year running, won the ‘best attendance’ trophy so well done to all of those who took part. Look at our fabulous Tanners team!
Today Elm class had lots of giggles dressing up in Miss Smith’s clothes! We identified that Miss Smith would wear these clothes in winter to keep her warm and dry. We then dressed up our own people based on what they would wear for our chosen season. Woolly hats in winter and cool sunglasses in summer!
Clubs have started back this week. Colour and chat is a great hit!
Elm class investigated crunchy autumn leaves and conkers today as part of our seasons topic.
