Dear parents and carers,
The week started with much excitement across the school with Wow Day on Monday.
In Year 5 they had a visit from Kimmy’s mobile zoo. They enjoyed finding out about and handling animals such as flying squirrels and raccoons. What a great way to kick off their topic ‘The Rainforest’!
Year 5 is not the only year group enjoying learning about animals. In Year 2 some of the children (and teachers) enjoyed dressing up as animals on Monday!
It’s all about the mini-beasts in Reception. The children in Reception Class have been digging up worms from the garden to put in their wormery, in order to learn more about worms and observe behaviour. The children also have caterpillars in their classes which already are turning to cocoons.
In Year 3 they got their topic off to an explosive start by making volcanoes and tornado makers in some very exciting science lessons on Monday.
There was fun and games for the teachers and children in Year 1 who were all allowed to bring in their favourite toy for Wow day. They also made some fantastic jumping jacks which will be on display next week, so look out for those!
There was much excitement in the Nursery when they realised that there was real food and herbs in the home corner! The children have enjoyed exploring and role playing all week!
Children in Year 4 have been writing fantastic poems. They went for a ‘sound walk’ along to help inspire them to write poems about Church Street. Their poems are amazing! Louis and Winter read out some of their poetry in Star of the Week assembly on Friday. We are hoping to share more inspirational work during out Friday assemblies.
I hope you have a good weekend and you are able to enjoy some of the lovely spring weather.
