RECEPTION

We have all had a great week of online learning and want to thank our families so much for their participation. We will still make sure we can have lots of fun in Reception even if we can't be together at school!

DT Project
This week Year 1 completed their first DT days. 
Our topic was to make a fruit kebab. The children spent a whole day trying fruits, talking about healthy eating and designing their kebab. They then was able to make their fruit kebab and evaluate it on day 2. 
We spoke a lot about being safe when preparing food and using knives, but also about cleaning surfaces thoroughly and washing hands. 
The children have thoroughly enjoyed their DT project! Well done Year 1! :D

Children's Mental Health Week
This week we have joined in with Children's Mental Health Week. Children took part in several activities linked to mental health.

They completed an 'All about me' activity to express their personality.

They used movement and art to express their creativity.

They participated in 'Dress to Express' day to express their style and interests.

We have loved looking at all the pictures and tasks shared with us, and especially loved seeing the children dressed up at their live sessions!

Thank you so much for taking part, we hope you enjoyed this week.

Stories from Other Cultures
In English this week, Year 3 have been exploring stories from Native American tribes.  It links with our Geography topic of North America and has inspired some lovely writing!  We practised 'show and don't tell' sentences to explore the feelings of characters.

Thank you!
To all the amazing Children and Parents in year 4!

We just wanted to take this opportunity to say the biggest thank you for all of your hard work and support over the last six weeks.

We know it hasn't always been easy but you have persevered and haven't given up! That is a skill in itself!

We have loved seeing you all every day and we know that lots of you have enjoyed the live sessions too.

We hope you have had a lovely break this week and have had lots of fun with your family.

We cannot wait to see you all back in school again and we hope that will be soon!

Parents, you are doing an amazing job supporting your children and supporting us too.
Thank you!

Mrs Goodman, Miss Briton, Mr Starkey and Mrs Harris

Keep on running!
This week, 5 Alder ran... and ran... and ran! They ran for up to half an hour and as you can see were thoroughly exhausted afterward. Everyone felt really proud of their achievement even if they were a bit knackered.

STEM Challenge
Year 6 came up with some fantastic design ideas for making a home for nature.

The designs include: a cabin, a wheelbarrow den, the BBT (Brilliant Bird Table), Branfil's wildlife, a bee hotel and a bird house.

Thank you to Daniel, Sophie, George, Jack, Tilly, Max, Poppy and Isabella for their creative ideas.

Well done and good luck to you all! :-)
