Finding a baby bird

Whist getting ready for school this morning, Alejandro went out to feed the birds. He found a baby bird hopping around the garden so picked it up before a cat could get it. He gave it some water and put up on a ledge, in the shade, so that it’s parents can come and get it. Holding the little bird has made Alejandro’s morning, I’m sure he’ll be telling you about it at school later ๐Ÿ˜„

Y6 Books

Hi Y6,

Please can you all bring a sturdy bag (e.g. a supermarket bag for life style) into school tomorrow so your books can be taken home?

Could you all also have a good look around your houses / bedrooms / under the beds (!) for any school reading books that may need returning.

We are very much looking forward to spending our last two days with you all…

See you tomorrow, Mrs T and Miss C ๐Ÿ“•๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ˜Š

Summer Nature Walk

We were so lucky with the weather today. The children observed nature incredibly well and some used natural objects (or even paint) to create their own artworks.

 

Aluxes Art

Today the children developed their sketching skills with a range of techniques, from cross hatching to stippling. In time, they will use these skills to design and create their own alux out of clay. The intriguing aluxes were small gnome-like deities who would protect farmersโ€™ fields.

Maya Day

We were very lucky to have Maya specialists, Sue and Kat, in school today with a wide range of activities to cement our knowledge of this amazing civilisation.

The children learnt more about weaving, Mayan writing and mathematical symbols, artefacts, codices, clothing and so much more. They also went on a VR tour of Mayan sites.

Tie-Dye

The children had a fantastic time learning about tie-dye which is a form of resistance dyeing, similar to the batik that we produced earlier this year. Rather than using wax to protect the fabric from the dye, this time the children used elastic bands. The results were really groovy!

Freddie W

Healthy lifestyles week. Apologies for the late blog post Freddie did lots of stuff for Healthy lifestyle week but wanted to show you his garden and how much stuff he is growing in his garden. He has lots of vegetables and also some apples

Water Safety

As part of our PE curriculum, Year 5 have been learning all about how to stay safe around water. Today, we created board games which highlighted the dangers of canals.
