Strictly Come Spellings…

We looked at a few multi-sensory ways to remember our spelling this week. After a great assembly on Halloween, All Saint's Day, Diwali, Bonfire Night (celebrating someone's attempt to blow up parliament?) and Daniel also mentioned Mexico's Day of The Dead (we Googled and found it was moved from early summertime to align better with other traditions!), so we thought [...]

Pickwell Farm Trip

Classes 1 and 2 had a brilliant morning with Farmer Andrew from Pickwell. We are very grateful to him for giving up his time to tell us all about the crops growing in the fields around us and the machines he uses to help him. The children enjoyed sitting in the tractor and collecting eggs from the chicken coup. Thank you [...]

Class 2 venture into Smoothie Making

A fabulous morning was had by all in Class 2 today.  Using their pre-prepared smoothie menu, everyone contributed to 'making and drinking' their smoothie. With ingredients such as banana, plum, lemon, pomegranate, pear, apple and strawberry every smoothie tasted completely different. The children were so sensible using the grown-up knives to prepare their fruit and were very careful with their [...]

A Journey to the Centre of the Brain

Today classes 3 and 4 found out about how the brain works and helps us to learn new things. The rest of this Blog is written in the words of class 4 sharing their thoughts about our morning. We found out about the human brain by watching a boy who was worried about tests travel inside his own brain-Jazz We [...]

Most of the children were pleasantly surprised by the yummy flavours that we could taste and enjoyed trying new [...]

We made a range of objects from a pendent decorated with Athena's owl to Greek [...]
