Year 4 learnt about resilience and how important it is to keep trying. To demonstrate this we learnt how to make Whales out of paper. The children really enjoyed this activity and the majority were able to demonstrate their resilience skills.
International Women’s Day (8th March) This afternoon, after swimming, we had our ‘Impact Day’. We wrote about and shared people who are inspirational to us and explained our reasons why. After lunch, we learnt about the Suffragette movement and Emmeline Pankhurst. We discussed the importance of having equal rights for everybody which sparked a little debate, ‘Were Emmeline Pankhurst’s actions appropriate?’. Lots of the children felt that violence wasn’t the correct behavio
Year 1 really enjoyed their Impact Day for their new topic, On the Farm. We had a farmer and farm animal parade, made animal collages and made a class scarecrow! We discussed which farm animals produce different foods and had lots of fun making ice cream milkshakes with locally sourced milk.
Pine class thoroughly enjoyed their day dressing up and focussing on their class text,The Day the Crayons Quit. We wrote our own letters as a particular colour crayon, with many of the crayons insisting they deserved a break. Following this, we created our own crayon art piece of our initials. We ended the afternoon with our Samba drumming session and created bookmarks!
At Conifers, we celebrated World Book Day with lots of fun! Children had the opportunity to dress up as a book character of their choice for the day and we started with a whole school assembly where we showcased our costumes and listened to a story together. Each class chose a 'reading star' and they were presented with a golden badge and certificate for their improved positive attitudes towards reading at home. All year groups had a different book to focus on for the day

To start our new topic of Plastic Pollution, the children took part in a litter pick around the school. They then had to place their items in the venn diagram of recyclable and non-recyclable. The children then became a human timeline whereby they were given items and they had to decide how long the item would take to biodegrade.
Conifers celebrated LGBT History month in February by bringing the whole school together to; appreciate and celebrate difference, acknowledge diversity and encourage inclusivity. Children wore their own clothes on the day and chose any colour from the rainbow, to make a statement as to; ‘who they are – and what they’re proud to be’.
