Easter Holidays 2022
We have had a really busy term with a wide range of learning and lots of extra-curricular activities. It has been great to finally start to get out and about into the local community and further afield and to take our learning beyond the classroom walls.
We have visited the Hindu Temple in Birmingham, played football against Bengeworth, litter picked around Church Lench, had a visitor in from Evesham Abbey Trust and the term culminated with our Easter Service in the church which was well attended and was a credit to all the children who spoke beautifully and sang superbly.
Here are a few of the highlights of the term.
DT - Improving a Product
Football at Bengeworth
A fun term with lots of activities
Spring Term 2022
The new term has started with some exciting learning including acting out the early part of 'Goodnight Mr Tom' (and then viewing the film) in preparation for our writing, discussing important issues such as appropriate behaviour in PHSE with Reggie the Monkey (you are only allowed to speak when Reggie is sitting with you) and investigating microbes in science - the classroom is currently full of mouldering fruit and bread (all carefully sealed, of course) - as we look at the effect of different locations on decomposition!
Autumn term 2021
The second half of the Autumn term was busy with a large number of activities in school and out. Children from Years 3 and 4 went to TDMS for a Quicksticks hockey tournament and everybody had an enjoyable time and one of our teams even made the semi-finals: not bad for a group of children who had only experienced playing hockey once of twice.
Later in the term Class 3 travelled to St Andrews to play the postponed football fixture from the first half term. Against a larger school we all performed very creditably and all had a wonderful day out with several star performances and a really good sporting attitude.
Back in the classroom we did some exciting learning including looking at creation stories in RE, learning about instruments of the orchestra in Music, using concrete resources in Maths and studying WW2. The highlight of the term was our visitor from Tastes of History who brought loads of artefacts from WW2 and even had us doing marching drills on the playground!
Although we weren't able to invite parents in for Christmas we were able to decorate the classroom, send each other lots of cards and rehearse and perform carols in the church. The videos of the performances are still available to watch oin Class Dojo.
Malvern Residential 2021
As you can see from the above photos the children had a fabulous time at Malvern. They walked up hills, fired arrows, scaled climbing walls, scrambled up slippery tubes, lit fires, built shelters, solved problems, read maps and found clues, scrabbled around in the dark and sped down a long zipwire. They also made their own sandwiches (which was quite funny to watch) and attempted to put on their own duvet covers (which was really funny to watch).
I know that they have all learned skills and made memories, had fun and cemented friendships, learned to support each other and feel supported and it was a real privilege to watch them learn and grow and have fun.
Summer Term 1
We have had a busy half term of learning and we also finally got to go on a trip out of school!
In English we have been working on writing biographies and some fabulous work has been produced on the lives of Roald Dahl, David Bowie and Lewis Hamilton. Maths his involved looking at fractions and decimals and the whole class has done really well at coming to terms with this difficult concept and understanding the relationship between the two. In Science we have looked at electricity and built lots of different circuits to demonstrate how circuits work and to investigate different components. Topic has been rather taken over by our developing production of 'Romeo and Juliet' and the children are really starting to get into their roles! Here is a short selection of photos from this term, including some of our fabulous day bellboating!
We have done a bit of archery practice with a bow that a member of the class had bought from the Medieval Fair in Evesham.
Finally, here is a selection of pictures of us working on lots of other curriculum areas.
We recorded a video to show to Classes 1 and 2 telling them all about ourselves. We worked hard on some drama, did lots of PE and prepared Easter gifts for the children in classes 2 and 3 which were delivered by Mr Debenham accompanied by two of the Year 5 children. This was all part of work that we have been doing in PSHE about our school community.
We have started topic work and looked at William Shakespeare and have started rehearsing a short version of 'Romeo and Juliet' which we hope to be able to record and present next term!
Have a fabulous Easter and I look forward to seeing everyone back at school for the Summer Term.
Now that we are all back in school following lockdown mark 2 (or was it 3?) we have been making up for lost time by getting to know each other all again, re-forming our friendships and getting on with some work. We have done lots of energetic P.E., worked on fractions in Maths, completed play scripts in English and looked at vertebrates and invertebrates in Science. We have also continued our topic work by looking at William Shakespeare, his life and work ant tied that in to English through our plays.
We have recently been practicing so that we can bring you a little bit of Christmas because we have not been able to do the traditional activities.
Click on the links to see what we have done...and if one of the children seems to be reading her poem floating sideways in mid-air, blame the cameraman!
Here is the first link to our Christmas musical medley...the link to the acrostic poems, prayers and Away In A Manger should follow tomorrow. Let me know on Class Dojo if there are any issues with the link.
Apologies - I have had to take the link down and will try to put it on Class Dojo tomorrow.
November and December Learning
In Science we have been studying Animals (including Humans) and Living Things and their Habitats. Everyone was fascinated by the experiment we designed to test the effect of different drink types on teeth.
We have constructed our own food chains and also done some work on classifying animals.
In English we have analysed and written instruction texts and spent time writing some interesting non-chronological reports.
And we have also had fun exercising in the playground and running the Santa Dash dressed in our Christmas jumpers!
At the start of November the whole school came together for a (socially distanced) Remembrance event where everyone observed the two minutes silence and Mr Debenham played 'The Last Post' on the trumpet.
For video footage of the event click on the link below.
Check back later in the term to see any updates.
