4R organised our sports. They did an amazing job.
At the beginning of term we went on a Treasure Hunt and were really upset when there wasn’t any treasure.
George had the answer for ‘Why does a bear hibernate?
Charlie was able to answer question number three, What was the first aeroplane like ? He said ‘It was made of wood and had flat wings.’ Ernie told the teddy bear with question number four all about his grand parents who went in a canoe in a river with hippos and crocodiles.
Our reward was a treasure chest full of treasure. Well done Reception B !
Sunshine, sea and sand. A perfect day with happy children.
It has been wonderful to see so many families supporting their children at the many celebrations we have enjoyed this week: Sports Days, Music Concerts, Memorable Experiences and Educational Visits. You can read all about them and find out about plans for the end of term on the school blog and on our newsletter here.
As part of our topic ‘We Love Adventures’, we visited the seaside at Joss Bay! We all had a fantastic day playing in the sand and paddling in the sea. Thank you to all the parents who came with us, you were a great help and we could not have done the visit without you.
Enjoying the coach journey there……
Playing in the sand ….
We LOVED paddling in the water and jumping over the waves….
Megan: “VE Day celebrates the end of World War II in Europe (VE stands for Victory in Europe. Megan used to think that it meant ‘Victory for England’, so she has learnt something new). We usually celebrate on the 8th of May every year but our celebration was at the end of our topic in July. At the end of World War II, lots of communities had street parties, where they celebrated the end of the war together. Before our street party, we pretended to be different countries or dictators and we did a drama activity where we learnt the order in which different countries joined the war.”
Abdullahi: “I am going to explain how we got ready for our street party. We made Union Flags to decorate the playground and worked in a team to put out the tables and chairs. We had food to eat like biscuits, cake and sandwiches. I also drank lemon juice that was so sour, it made me run around the playground. In World War II, they didn’t have very much food, so people had a little ration book to make sure the food was shared out fairly. This was because the Germans used submarines to attack the boats with food on them. I am glad I did not live during World War II, the bombs would have been scary. Some of the bombs had teeth on them.”
