As part of our home learning, we were set the challenge of designing a piece of artwork to represent one of the 6 main biomes. Miss Bennett was very impressed with our fantastic creations!
Juniper class had the pleasure of Mrs Bastable teaching them about the religious meaning of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh today and that Jesus was God’s gift to the world. We really enjoyed looking at and smelling the different materials.
Today in Juniper class we completed a number of fun activities for anti-bullying day, based around the theme ‘change starts with us’. In one activity, we said unkind, hurtful things to an apple and then, kind, positive things to another apple. We discussed how saying these unkind things made us feel sad and sorry for the apple. When we cut the apples open, the apple that we had said unkind things to was broken and bruised whereas the other apple was healthy. We immediately understood the impact that our words can have on people. The bruises and broken bits showed us what happens inside each one of us when somebody mistreats us with their words and actions.
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.
Well done to all the children that made bridges as part of their STEM week homework. They all look fantastic! Thank you for all your hard work. A special congratulations to Max whose bride won a prize!
Yesterday Year 3 travelled back to the Stone Age and spent the day at Celtic Harmony. We had the opportunity to take part in lots of activities – our favourites included practising our hunting skills and attempting to create stable shelters. We used our Stone Age knowledge to answer lots of questions and learnt even more facts about life in Prehistoric times!
This week as part of our home learning we created some beautiful cave art sculptures. These are currently being displayed in our classroom.
The children have been enjoying investigating and exploring different activities this week linked to science, maths and computing.
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!
