Jupiter Class showed what a great team they were this week when they took part in some tricky team challenges as part of their PE lessons.  They learned that helping and supporting each other really helps in the long run and that everybody has a part to play.

Neptune Class get ready for firework night

To help get themselves and others ready for Firework Night, Neptune Class had a firework day in class.  They made firework scenes using graphics tools on the computers, created large firework drip and splat paintings inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock, made firework shapes using blow painting techniques, completed firework maths problems, read all about firework safety and also made their own firework safety posters too. Here are some photos of the day.

Sending mice to space!

We have been exploring forces in our science this half term and finished this topic off by attempting to send mice to space!!!

Each child made a paper mouse and then by squashing the air out a milk carton they pushed their mice up into space.  They explored what happened when they made the mass of the mouse heavier too.  What a fun afternoon!!!

Six go to Staunton Scarecrow Trail

Six of our lucky children visited Staunton Country Park on Friday to find out the winners of the Staunton Scarecrow competition and be the first visitors of the Scarecrow Trail.  They also got to take part in a spooky barn encounter where they got to handle some scary creatures and also put their hands into some slimy and surprising things!!  Sadly our scarecrows did not win any prizes but we still think they are amazing and if you want to go and see them on display they are scattered around the park for the whole of half term.

The Scarecrow’s Wedding.

KS1 decided to take part in Staunton Country Park’s Scarecrow making competition, inspired by the book ‘The Scarecrow’s Wedding’ by Julia Donaldson. We created 9 scarecrows based around characters from Julia Donaldson’s books.  The children had great fun creating the scarecrows and even managed to write instructions as to how to make them too!

Here’s a slideshow of the making in action!

Rosary rings

Jupiter and Neptune classes have been learning all about the rosary and how to pray it in their RE lessons this week.  To help them understand how the rosary is prayed the children each followed a set of instructions and made their own rosary rings. 

Neptune Class were very lucky as one of the children had made one earlier in the day and he gave a superb set of instructions to the class to explain how to make their own rosary ring.
