Have a look at what our children have been doing in school recently:-
Children in Years 3 & 4 have been enjoying their ‘Royal Rascals’ topic and were very excited to have a visit from Henry VIII!
They learned all about his life including his favourite past times and his many wives! The children also took part in a jousting competition which was one of Henry’s favourite sports.
World Book Day 2019
To celebrate World Book Day, children across the school enjoyed dressing up as characters from their favourite book.
The Queen’s Visit
As part of their ‘Bright Lights, Big City’ topic children in Years 1 & 2 have been learning about London and the Queen and were honoured to have a visit from ‘Her Majesty’!
The children wore their finest clothes, the red carpet was rolled out and a wonderful afternoon tea was prepared by the children.
They incorporated Design & Technology, Science, English and Maths through various tasks:
Growing cress under different conditions
Preparing egg and cress sandwiches
Grating cheese and cutting cucumber for sandwiches
Writing instructions on how to make sandwiches
Writing questions to ask the Queen
Drawing bar charts of favourite sandwich fillings
The children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the ‘Queen’ had a most marvellous time too!
The children have been commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War. During a special assembly the children shared their writing based upon the war and produced some poppy-inspired artwork. They also decorated jars to make candle holders which were lit to provide a moment of reflection for us all.
