Today the nursery children have been very busy learning all about shapes. They cut out shapes and used them to make pictures, used magnetic shapes to build, threaded bolts through circular washers and nuts, and made different shape sandwiches. We even danced to the Mr Maker shape song!
What a fantastic day the children have had celebrating the forthcoming wedding of the Royals! This morning all of Foundation Phase had an outdoor party which was lots of fun! They then took part in some lovely activities including designing a wedding cake involving fractions, decorating their own cupcakes, designing a bouquet for Meghan using real petals and more! They all looked wonderful in their outfits. Take a look at some of the fun they had here.
Last week Year 2 composed their own song based on one they had learnt in the lesson before. Today they performed the song in their groups using a variety of instruments, ensuring they kept a steady beat throughout. It sounded great! What a good job, da iawn!
The children had lots of fun this afternoon learning all about the different parts of a flower. They were shocked to learn that flowers all have male and female parts. After a long discussion they had the opportunity to put on their rubber gloves and use tweezers and magnifying glasses to investigate further. They thoroughly enjoyed dissecting the flower and tallying how many of each part their flower had. Ardderchog!
The weather was a little bit too wet for us to go outside first thing this morning but it didn’t stop our fun. We made edible mud pies, worm paintings using string instead of paintbrushes and even threaded Cheerios on to string and straws to make giant worms. We coloured Superworm pictures and designed our very own superhero pants! The sun eventually came out and we were able to have a little play outside before home time.
This morning Year 6 were in for a treat…4 new teachers! Our digital leaders taught the rest of the class to take part in an online quiz called Kahoot. Pupils competed against each other and also wrote their own quiz for others to answer. Why don’t you test their knowledge against yourselves at home?
The children have been busy making their own Torah Scrolls this afternoon. They have learnt that it is the holy book within Judaism. It is sacred and must be handled with care. It is read using a pointer called a Yad and is kept in a special cupboard called an Ark. They really enjoyed making their mini Torah Scrolls! Ardderchog.
