Mental Health Awareness Week - Connecting with Nature

This week has been Mental Health Awareness week and the theme was connecting with nature. In Maple class, we took part in many exciting activities including colour, texture and leaf hunts outside, outdoor guided meditation, games such as animal yoga poses and foxes & rabbits. We also worked in groups to decide which 10 salvaged items we would keep if we were stranded in a forest on a mountain and placed these in order of importance. We spent a lot of time outside to immerse ourselves in the sights and sounds of nature.

Skyscraper models

As part of our Geography topic 'Where would you choose to build a city?', we discussed why many cities have skyscrapers and their uses. We then had a go at making our own skyscrapers out of paper and we made them as tall as we could!

Christmas Crafts Day

To start off the countdown until Christmas, the children have had a Christmas Crafts Day. They have loved coming to school in their Christmas jumpers and made some wonderful decorations and cards. We have also made a 'Random Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar'. The children have written an act of kindness and these are behind the doors with the date's number on. There are two acts of kindness for each day. Today children had to talk to a peer who they don't normally talk to and play with someone at breaktime who they don't normally play with. We have also had lots of Christmas songs on to get us into the Christmas spirit and put our class Christmas tree up. The children will be able to take home all of their wonderful decorations and cards on the last day of term.

Remembrance Day 2020

On Remembrance Day, we listened to the story about why we wear a poppy and why people pay their respects on the 11th November. We read the poem 'In Flanders Fields' and wrote our own acrostic poem, using the word REMEMBER. Oak Class did an assembly about Remembrance Day on Teams, which we all watched in our classes. We laid our decorated stones by our memorial after we had our two minute silence.  


Lest we forget.

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful half term. This term we are continuing to look at 'How did Britain change?', and we will be focussing on the Romans in Britain. We started the term off with a WOW day, to introduce the topic about the Romans, and the children loved finding out what advanced technology the Romans had. We created our own class Roman soldier (where each child had a part to make). They also enjoyed forming a testudo (also known as the tortoise) which was a shield wall formation that the legions used in battle.


Please read our newsletter attached below to find out what we will be covering this term.
