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

Super Sledging! Robins and Chaffinches visit Snozone

2018-03-13 16:01:50 jforbes

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!

The Best Pantomime Ever!

2017-12-21 13:24:37 j-forbes

The children in Wrens, Robins and Chaffinches celebrated the end of their topic this term with a production and performance of “Jack and the Beanstalk”. They had to design and paint the props, which was a challenge because they were so huge. The characters and narrators had lots of lines to learn but they managed really well and performed very confidently. The Jack, Cloud and Harp dancers were very entertaining and the singing was excellent. The audience loved every minute and Mr Wirth complimented the cast, saying this had been the best Infant Christmas Production ever!

Hearty Harvest Festival

2017-10-27 12:49:54 j-forbes

Robins and Chaffinches have been finding out all about harvest and they celebrated the end of the topic by inviting their parents and grandparents to attend an amazing harvest service. They entertained their families with songs, prayers and poetry and finished with a collection to support the homeless people in Sheffield as part of the Archer Project. Parents contributed produce and clothes, which will be greatly appreciated.

The guests then joined their children in the classroom to share the work they have been doing this term and they were served with delicious crumbles and scones. Everyone had a really enjoyable, celebratory morning.

Down on the farm!

2017-09-29 12:31:49 j-forbes

This week, Robins and Chaffinches visited Whirlow Hall Farm. What a fantastic day we had!  During the day, we had a guided tour around the farm.  We handled many different animals; goats, chickens, horses to name a few.  The piglets were only a few weeks old and so cute.  We also worked very hard and carried out lots of jobs, just like real farmers!  We put on our gloves and wellies and got busy!  We collected eggs, groomed the horses and  undertook ‘pasture management’ – in other words we picked up poo!  Look at the pictures and you will see how busy we were and how much fun we had!
