French Christmas Market Adverts

Take a look at Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls adverts for their French Christmas Market stalls:

 

Special Christmas visitors challenge Robins to put their science skills to the test!

Whilst Robins were busy rehearsing for their Christmas production last week, it appeared that some sneaky visitors had lots of fun in their classroom. Robins returned to find chairs upturned and hoof prints all over the carpet! On inspection of the cctv footage, three of Santa’s reindeers had been into the classroom.

The dancing reindeers left Robins a letter, asking if they could put their science skills to the test and find a suitable material which could be used to make coats to keep them warm and dry at the North Pole.

Robins carried out several investigations and some of the science vocabulary that they used was amazing. Well done Robins on some super science work!

 

Anston Greenlands Comic Con

 

 

We’ve been helping to support the Sheffield Cathedral Archer Project!

Over the past few weeks, food donations have been made by our very kind families at Greenlands.

Yesterday, Emily, from the Sheffield Cathedral Archer Project came in to talk to the children about the work that the project does.  It helps homeless people around Sheffield: by providing activities, help to find jobs, providing some shelter and food to eat.

What a great, worthwhile charity: thank you for your support!

Cooking with the House Captains!

Our school House Captains have enjoyed helping to run a Cooking Club with Y1 and Y2 children, and they are doing a great job!  The first week, muffins were made and this week the children made pizza: which was a great success!

Chaffinches and Robins had a brrrrr…illiant time at Snozone!

What a super day Chaffinches and Robins had yesterday at Snozone, Xscape.  The children spent time in ‘extreme’ conditions, similar to the ones we have been learning about last half term.  See for yourselves, from the photos, as to how much fun we had!

 

 

 

Autumn Time in Wrens

We absolutely love this season, as there is just so much you can do at this time of year outside and inside. We got busy using all of the lovely leaves that had fallen from the trees.

We made leaf crowns to wear for our autumn sing-song.

We created autumn place mats, clay leaves and tea lights.

We also stuck with the autumn theme for our biscuits. Here are our squirrel and leaf biscuits. Yum, Yum!

We learnt some new autumn songs, which we confidently sang in front of all our parents and carers.

We then worked with our parents and carers at some autumn activities.

We held a scarecrow competition with a twist. They all had to be linked to a book character. Take a look at the entries…

The winners were chosen by Mr Wirth (The Headteacher) and Mrs Bower (The Literacy Co-ordinator)

George Pig – from Peppa Pig & The Witch –  from Room on the Broom

Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs were blown away with our amazing hard work and effort. Bring on the next season!

Anti-Bullying Week

Next week is National Anti-Bullying week.

Our Anti-Bullying Champions have sent a letter to all of the children in school, asking them to come in odd socks on Tuesday for National Odd Socks Day. It’s an opportunity to encourage everyone to express themselves, and to celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

All children have also been invited to take part in a competition to design a pair of odd socks – entries should be sent to either the Golden Eagles or the Snowy Owls classroom.

There will be no charge for either of these events.

The Anti-Bullying Champions will be running an assembly on Wednesday, during which the competition winners will be announced.

Autumn walks, phone calls from Antarctica and lots of science – a busy week in Robins!

Robins have had a super half term and we finished it off with a very busy final week. On Monday, we had an ‘Autumn Day’. The weather was kind to us as we walked through the woods and around the park looking for signs of Autumn. We spotted conkers, squirrels, and a variety of different coloured leaves which we collected for our art activities that we carried out later in the day. Back at school there were delicious smells coming from our classroom as Robins baked gingerbread biscuits too. The following day, we were very excited to receive a very special phone call from a scientist who is working in Antarctica. She answered lots of our questions that we had prepared and sent us some amazing photos too.

Robins have also been learning about solids, liquids and gases and the processes of melting and freezing. Of course this had to be done in a fun way…so chocolate was involved!

Here are some photos to give you a flavour of our week.

Restart a Heart Day

On Wednesday 16th October, children across school took part in activities linked to national Restart A Heart Day. Year 6 were particularly lucky to benefit from the expertise of players and staff from Rotherham Titans Rugby Club. As you can see, the children had plenty of hands-on opportunities to try out CPR on Rescue Annie Mannequins. It was an extremely useful, important morning.
