Looking after the world

In RE, we have been looking at how Muslims look after the world. We found out that some Muslims believe they are the guardians of creation by looking after something that is not theirs, called Khalifa.

We thought about what we could all do to help look after the world and protect the natural resources.

We came up with – Water plants and flowers for the insects, throw all rubbish in the bin, keep rubbish out of the ocean, only buy clothes that you need, only drive cars when you need to, turn off the tap after using it, be kind to animals and switch off the lights when you leave a room.

Sports Day!

We had lots of fun on Wednesday afternoon for Sports Day. We took part in the egg and spoon race; obstacle course; welly wanging and javelin. We also had a relay race and some running races. Everybody worked really well as a team and enjoyed taking part!

DT Challenge – Years 1 and 2

We have had some fantastic entries for the DT Challenge across the school – a huge well done to every one for getting involved! Winners are being announced this week and there will be a prize for both the winner and runner-up from each Key Stage. We hope everyone enjoyed taking some time out to get creative.

Here are some examples from Years 1 and 2.

Our run to the North Pole so far……..

Wow! The children had two extra days this week compared to last week so we expected a higher lap/mileage count but we were not expecting it to be this high! As a school we ran 7,706 laps which is 1,156 miles! So altogether we have run 1,661 miles and have 899 to go! Well done Tanners , keep it up! This week Ash class improved the most with a staggering 717 laps! The trophy goes to them this week! 

Furthest distance covered in the run to the North Pole!

The children ran so far last week covering an amazing 505 miles in 3361 laps of the daily mile track. That is a quarter of the way to the North Pole! 

Well done to Oak class who ran a staggering 461 laps , the most out of any class in the school!

Next week the trophy will be given to the most improved score! The trophy is on display in Oak class’s window. 

Maybe try running an extra lap next week!
