What a great way to kick off our new term!
Children in Merlins and Ospreys’ new topic is ‘The Science Fair’ and they’ve spent the day carrying out Science experiments and being Scientists. The children also took part in a Science Detective workshop: they had to solve a crime by looking at clues and eliminating suspects through Science!
What a fun way to learn Science!
We hope you enjoy our school choir’s Christmas performance. Although they were not able to perform in front of family, carers and friends, the choir had the opportunity to entertain their KS2 classmates. The children start with some of the songs they have been working on since October before moving onto a few festive favourites!
What a busy few weeks Merlins and Ospreys have had in preparing their Roman take away! Children created menus and order forms and then orders were collected. Over the past few days, the children have been making the dough for the bread, chopping the vegetables for the Faro soup and making the honey cakes. The food was made and the orders went out on time. The children really enjoyed making the food and talked of how their parents enjoyed it.
What a fantastic day Merlins and Ospreys had last Wednesday, when they visited Murton Park. They visited Murton Park as part of their current topic, all about the Romans. They were able to dress and train as Roman Soldiers!
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.
