To celebrate our learning about the Ancient Greeks, Year 5 held a Greek day. The children took part in a range of different activities from drama to art to our own Mini Olympics. All the children  prepared, cooked then ate a wonderful selection of tradition Greek dishes; thank you Mrs Georgiou for all your help! Great fun was had by all.

Dads and Lads: Dads and Lads is a session that was run after school where any male role model comes in to spend time doing activities with their child/ relative.  On 5th November we had different activities set up to for the adults and the children to enjoy:

Football– where the children practised their control with the ball, played a game against the adults and were able to take penalty shots against their grown up.

Forest school- took part in our forest school area on site. The children climbed tress and explored and also had some fun using sparklers as it was bonfire night.

Woodwork– the children created their own cars using screws and screwdrivers to connect their items together using screwdrivers and then they painted them.

Construction– children experimented with a range of construction items to create models.

Cooking- The children in reception have been taking part in weekly cooking sessions. These are pictures of them making their own pizzas linked to our role play area in class. We looked at how to safely use the tools as well as how the food changes when its cooked.

Ice skating: Reception have been learning about ice and how it changes/ melts. We carried out experiments to test our ideas and used this to find out new information. At the end of the Autumn term,  we went ice skating where the children got to experience ice skating for themselves and we had discussions about why it was slippery and how and  why it was melting. The children were fantastic at skating and all showed no fear.

In Spring Term 1, we are learning about ‘Under the Sea’ to support our topic book ‘Surprising Sharks’. Each week in class, we have been exploring real sea life creatures to look closely at similarities and differences. we have explored fish, squid and crabs.

To further support the children’s learning, we visited the London Aquarium. We traveled by train and then explored the aquarium to see first hand the animals that we have been learning about in class.

Forest School

Reception had a Forest School session led by Mrs Stewart, where they built a fire and roasted marshmallows.  The children thought about what they needed to build a fire and discussed how to stay safe.  They observed how the marshmallows changed and enjoyed eating them at the end!

Summer 1

The children have been learning about growing their own fruits and vegetables this week. We read the story ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and talked about how in the story, Grandpa is growing lots of vegetables in his garden. We then visited our own allotment patch at school and have been weeding and planting our own vegetables up at the allotments this week. We are very excited to take care of them and watch them grow!

In class we have been discussing healthy food and drinks and about the sugar that is in some of our food and drinks. We have also been talking about the natural sugars that can be found in some food and drinks too. This led to us making our own fruit smoothies in class using bananas, strawberries and grapes- mixed with milk in the blender. It was lots of fun, especially drinking it after we had finished!

Wednesday 11th May 2016

As our topic book this half term, the children have been reading ‘What the Ladybird Heard’. To support our learning further, we went on a school trip to Kent Life Farm. The children enjoyed the ‘Meet the animals’ workshop where they met goats, cows and chickens and were able to learn interesting facts. They also explored ‘cuddle corner’ where they were able to hold rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs. The children went on a tractor ride around the site where they were keen to wave to anyone that passed them! Finally, the children also had the opportunity to explore the site finding more animals such as pigs, horses and alpacas as well as exploring old farm buildings. It was a fantastic day out!
