Wrens go on Litter Patrol at their Local Park

We decided to walk to our local park to tidy it up, as we feel it is very important to look after our local environment and our planet.

We went armed with our litter pickers and gloves, to help us to keep safe from the germs.

We split into small teams to ensure we could cover all of the park and off we went! On our travels around the park we saw some local people who were so pleased to see us, and they thanked us for our efforts.

Well after a couple of hours we had managed to fill several bags with litter. Whilst we were collecting the litter we discussed what the litter was and what it was made of. We were amazing!!!

Mrs Marriott and Mrs Briggs gave us all a sticker for working our socks off!

We hope you enjoy the nice clean park, and please remind people to put litter in the bin.

Thankyou

love the Wrens x

 

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:

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?

Wrens Autumn Walk

We had a lovely autumn walk this morning.

I don’t know how we did it, but we managed to miss the rain clouds too!

We had fun with the leaves.

Then we collected lots of different leaves to create our leaf crowns.

We wore these with pride. What do you think to them?

Royalty in the making?

 

Wrens get very active in their first PE lessons!

We have been having great fun in our first PE lessons.

Our first challenge was to get changed. We did an amazing job!

 

 

We warmed up by playing games. We loved the ‘Jelly Bean’ game.

Here we are playing the ‘Cups and Saucers’ game.

Next we used hoops as cars, to help us become more aware of space. Mrs Marriott then shouted out instructions, so we had to listen very carefully. Some of the instructions included jumping over road humps, changing gear and going around roundabouts. We then picked up passengers on our way.

We then worked on jumping and balancing.

 

We are loving our lessons and we are already getting ready much more quickly!

 

 

 

 

What a ‘splashing’ time we had!

Rain certainly does not stop play in Wrens.

We just love it when it rains, as it means our umbrellas come out to play too!

 

 

Our new Wrens are loving school life!

They have had their first lunch in the school hall.

 

They have been busy exploring their new environment and learning their new routines.

They have even been outside to road test their wellington boots!

All this and they have only just started!

Our pirate ships set sail………. Well some did!

Well we had worked really hard to create our pirate ships ready for the big day!

Would our ships be sea worthy?

Well first of all we all made our predictions. Float or sink? That was the question. Then came the time to test them. If they did float, then we needed to see if they would take any crew on board without sinking.

We had two ships that managed to take far more crew on board than the others. Meet our best pirate ship makers!

A miracle happened in our classroom – metamorphosis !

We purchased our own live butterfly kit, as we wanted to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly.

From the minute our caterpillars arrived we were excited!

We loved observing the changes. We watched them grow and become a chrysalis. We then got to move our chrysalis into the butterfly habitat. Then came the magical moment of emergence, where they look like they are resting peacefully, but an amazing transformation is taking place inside! Our chrysalis began to then darken, which was a big clue that our butterflies were preparing to emerge.

The magical birth of our butterflies happened surprisingly quick!

One to two hours after emergence, our butterflies were fully formed and ready to fly! We fed our butterflies nectar (sugar-water), fruit, and nectar-bearing flowers.

We knew we could only keep them for 2-3 days now, so we planned a little farewell celebration. We made ‘Life Cycle of a Butterfly Hats’, which we wore when we released them. We also sang Happy Birthday to them.

As the butterflies took flight, one of them decided to have a little rest on one of our hands. Watch our video and see whose hand it chose!

What an amazing experience!

 

 

A miracle on our hand!

Guess what? We opened our own Garden Centre!

We have been so busy this half term learning about plants and mini-beasts. We needed to be  prepared to answer any questions our customers may ask us at our ‘Garden Centre’.

We went for walks to the local park to take photos of flowers, which we then used to make book marks.

We went into our woodland to identify mini-beasts, and also create natural art pictures for our art gallery.

We went stick hunting for perfect sticks to make our mini-beast hotels, and to create our fairy wands.

Whilst we were outside it rained, but no weather is bad weather, so we got the umbrellas out!

IMG_2706 IMG_2707 IMG_2708 IMG_2709

We baked buns, biscuits and created grape caterpillars for our café.

We made our staff badges, and began advertising for our ‘Garden Centre’ opening.

Well, the day had finally arrived, all of our hard work had certainly paid off. We had fully stocked our ‘Garden Centre’ and we were just waiting for customers to arrive.

It was time to cut the ribbon. Can you guess who we asked to do this very important job?

Our customers turned up in droves!

We had some beautiful cakes donated for the raffle, by some fabulous parents and helpers. We asked Mr Wirth to draw the raffle.

What a fabulous turn out for our event! We were overwhelmed with the amount of support we received, and the weather was definitely on our side. Thank you to everyone that attended!

We manage to raise £182, which we are planning to spend on our next topic ‘It’s a Pirates Life for Me’
