Over the past few weeks, Chaffinches have been learning about how to stay healthy. They have made a series of workout videos that will be posted weekly for 6 weeks.
Chaffinches have written the following:
We have made a fantastic workout video for you out there! Get out of your seats, get off your phones and do this workout. Have a healthy balanced diet, drink lots of water and try some exercise because it’s fun! We have made these videos just for you. Exercise is good for the heart, good for your mind and good for your body. Exercise is for everybody. Go and have a jog around a park or go for a walk or run!
We hope you enjoy taking part.
Games, dancing, party food, music and drumming! What a great way to launch a topic. There was definitely a party atmosphere in KS1 yesterday as Chaffinches and Robins took part in a ‘Celebration Party’ to welcome the start of a new year, a new term and a new topic. Over the coming weeks, they will be learning about a variety of celebrations, festivals and carnivals across the world. The children got off to a fantastic start by taking part in a drumming workshop and dancing to Samba music.
We are planning to create and produce our own carnival parade which will take place before Easter, so watch this space for more information.
We did it! Our amazing Wrens, Robins and Chaffinches have given two spectacular performances of “Miracle In Town” for parents and carers. Thank you to all of our infant children, staff and volunteers for making this nativity so special and thank you audience members for following our Covid precautions – we really appreciate it. If you didn’t get chance to join us, or if you’d like a repeat performance, you can now watch our nativity online here. Merry Christmas everyone!
At the start of Anti-bullying week, Chaffinches listened to a song called ‘The Kids are United’. We talked about being kind, looking out for one another and being one team! The children found the lyrics very meaningful and loved the song so much that they decided to make their own version. You will see that there are some budding pop stars in the making! We hope that you enjoy watching it and singing along with us, it’s a very catchy tune!!
These are the lyrics from the song that Wrens have been learning this week to help them to understand Remembrance Day. On Thursday, children throughout school took part in special assemblies to mark this important day. Several of our history lessons during this week have also been focused on learning about Remembrance Day and understanding the significance of it.
KS1 were very lucky to welcome a special visitor, Dom to school. He talked about serving in the RAF and answered lots of very thoughtful questions from Robins and Chaffinches.
As well as learning their song and performing it, Wrens also painted their own poppies and if you have passed by school this last few days, you will have seen other poppies and wreaths that children have made.
Below are photos of some of the lovely artwork that children have produced and photos from this week.
