After a lovely Easter service with Revd David Lewis at St Barbara’s Church, we returned to school and enjoyed a really fun Easter egg hunt in the playground. It was lovely to see all the children working together to hunt for the eggs before taking on the challenge of eating them – without licking your lips!
On a beautiful spring day last week, we enjoyed a lovely walk across the hill to Shaw Green Farm to see the newborn lambs. The children were full of questions and Jamie and Liz Smith ensured that we had a really fascinating morning. We learned about the arrival and care of the baby lambs and also found out many facts about the wildlife living on the hill .
On our return journey we collected lots of sheep’s wool in the meadow and back at school we did some research to find out how we could turn this into yarn. We washed the wool gently, carded it with hairbrushes and then had a go at using a drop spindle to spin it into yarn. Finally we wove yarn into our own mini woolly blankets .
In our indoor PE lessons this term we have been doing gymnastics. We have been finding different ways of travelling and balancing on different parts of our bodies. This week we did some great balance sequences on the big apparatus.
We had lots of fun on Red Nose Day and particularly enjoyed doing the Treasure Hunt at playtime with our buddies.
On Wednesday Charlotte came to talk to us about how to be a good owner. We now know how to be dog smart. Alistair came in handy, even at questions too.
I learnt that grapes were poisonous for dogs. I never knew that.
Charlotte came from the Dog’s Trust. She taught us about what dogs need. They need a bone, bed and food. I loved it, my friends loved it too.
The lady was very kind and she and she brought in a teddy it as called Biscuit. We all laughed at it.
Thank you for coming.
Hayley was person that taught us how to cross the road safely. It was good fun too.
First Hayley gave us some light yellow jackets so we could be seen. Next we went outside and we had some driveways in front of us so we looked both ways and then we crossed.
After that we came to a road, Hayley said to stop and we looked both ways again. Then we crossed safely.
Thank you Hayley for teaching us how to stay safe because it will save our lives.
We enjoyed playing games and doing lots of counting , addition, subtraction, sharing and number matching on World Maths Day.
Acorn Class had great fun learning to Zumba this week.
We have been learning how to use Scratch 3 to create different projects
