News Flash! …….Wrens Attend Pirate Training Day

On Tuesday 5th June, Wrens attended interviews for a job they had applied for on-board a pirate ship.

As a result of everyone being successful at their interview, they were able to attend a ‘Pirate Training Day’ the next day.

It’s official that Wrens are mathematicians!

We have been using Maths apps on the ipads today!

We helped each other to solve the addition and subtraction number problems that we were given.(We were just like Tim and Tom the Teamwork Twins!) We used all of our Maths strategies to achieve this.

Look at us in action! We were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed this session.

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?

IMG_7026

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!
