Year 1 have been building links with the wider community by visiting Buxton House Care Home during the year. We have enjoyed making crafts and cards and getting to know one another. The children also enjoy squash and biscuits which is a little treat! In between our visits we have been sending letters and pictures to Buxton House. In the Summer Term we will invite Buxton House and parents to a KS1 Family Assembly to share our experiences.
Pine enjoyed a learning outside the classroom session for English. The task was to create a character using natural objects for the story. They very much enjoyed the lesson and then wrote some wonderful descriptions the next day.
As part of our Thrive session, Pine enjoyed reading the story ‘The dot’. All of the class then created their own piece of artwork using just one dot as a starting point. All the children had great imaginations in what their piece eventually turned into!
Pine class enjoyed a forest school area session as part of their Thrive learning. We read the story Stick Man, then created photo frames out of sticks to use to take photos around the nature area. Everyone developed their team work skills as well as problem solving.
Pine class enjoyed a wonderful day out at Tout Quarry, scrambling, climbing and jumping over rocks. It was a beautiful afternoon learning about the quarry, wildlife and the rocks. The view from the top was particularly incredible!
Year 4 enjoyed a day out to Madrid for their summer term impact day! The children arrived dressed in their summer gear for the Conifers Airways flight. When they arrived they enjoyed researching and creating information leaflets. Where will year 4 be flying next on their trip around the world?
The Year 3 and 4 football team enjoyed an afternoon out at the St George’s Tournament on Wednesday. They were all very nervous as it was their first time out representing the school at sport. The team did fantastically well and grew with confidence the more they played. They managed to win 2 games, beating hosts St George’s 2-0 and St Nicks 8-1, drew one against Holy Trinity and lost 2. The teams had a great time and they are looking forward to coming back again next year.
