Eggs-ceptional!

Here are some of the other stunning entries to our ‘Decorate an Egg’ competition. As you can see, we have some highly creative children in our school  … and who doesn’t love a good egg pun?

 

As you can tell, our judges had an eggs-tremely difficult job, but here are some of our winners, along with their prizes:

The Big Bang Fair

On Wednesday 14th March, the Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had an amazing day at the Big Bang Fair, which was held at Birmingham NEC. There were so many things to see and do. Here, you can see us making and testing rivets, having a go at breaking a world record and waiting to see some fantastic shows.

 

A Cracking Start!

The Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls are egg-static about the egg-ceptional entries to our egg competition so far. Judging will take place on Tuesday, so make sure your egg-cellent eggs are in early!

Wrens having fun on World Book Day

We had a wonderful time dressing up as different book characters on World Book Day. Can you spot which characters we are?

Super Sledging! Robins and Chaffinches visit Snozone

What a fantastic way to bring our amazing topic towards an end, with a super day out at Snozone in Castleford. You can see from the photos and the videos what fun we had. This week in our science lessons, we will be investigating different materials, with a view to finding the most appropriate for making our own sledge.

As always the behaviour of the children was second to none. The children in these two classes have worked extremely hard this term and have learnt so much about the Arctic and the Antarctic, we are sure there are some future scientists and explorers in our midst!

Family Fitness Fun!

What a fantastic turn out on Wednesday for our family boot camp initiative (27 children, 14 adults). The hall was full of positive energy, where parents and grandparents participated for fun, encouraging their children to be active. Such a great atmosphere, and to top it off, we nailed the plant pinball challenge!

Looking forward to seeing you all next week for some more fun. Many thanks

Keep a look out for photos…

Scrapstore Playpod

Our scrapstore playground is now open and the children are having a wonderful time during lunchtimes building dens, having crate races and creating obstacle courses.

Robins join Shackleton’s crew!

 

Robins are currently learning about the coldest parts of our planet, the Arctic and the Antarctic. Therefore, last week’s weather was perfect for our topic.   A few days ago, we had a visit from ‘a famous person from history’, Sir Ernest Shackleton! He came to share his story about his attempt to cross the continent of Antarctica in his ship ‘The Endurance’. Sir Ernest explained very well how the ship became trapped in the ice and how with excellent leadership and teamwork the whole crew managed to survive living on the ice for nearly two years! He set several challenges and tasks for us whilst he was here, all of which were competently completed by the children.

The heavy snowfall after Shackleton’s visit was perfect for Robins, as it enabled us to re-enact more realistically the events of his famous expedition. We built ‘The Endurance’, pulled the sleds as Sir Ernest and his crew had done, made ‘Dogloos’ for the 69 dogs that were taken on the expedition and created Dogtown as Sir Ernest had ordered. We also used a very heavy rope and imagined that we were hauling one of the lifeboats across the ice, just as the 23 man crew had done. This didn’t quite go according to plan as we tipped Mrs Forbes out of the lifeboat!

The ideas and imagination that came from the children were amazing! This historic event has certainly been brought to life in Robins.
