This afternoon Juniper class continued celebrating inspirational black lives. We discussed the African American artist Alma Woodsey Thomas. We learnt all about her life and her inspirations. We created some beautiful, colourful art work using her technique as a starting point.
This morning on her way to work Miss Bennett was horrified to see an alien spaceship zoom over Tanners Wood. Year three went to investigate and were amazed when they discovered a strange, green egg in the KS1 playground. Where did the egg come from? What is the strange noise that keeps coming from the sky? Where is the UFO now? Year 3 will continue to report on the incident and hopefully more information will be revealed soon…
In year 3 we have been completing a science experiment to observe how fertiliser affects how well plants grow. This week we have observed how the cress seeds have begun to grow! We’re excited to see what happens next.
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.
