What a manic few weeks it has been!!
We have been very busy in KS1, learning songs and words and dances for our nativity, ‘It’s Christmas!’.
It is a really fun nativity with lots of giggles but also reminds us of the real meaning of Christmas.
This afternoon we had our dress rehearsal and peformed in front of the whole school and they all joined in with our final song too, which was great. One more performance to our families on Monday and then we’ll be onto our next project ……..making items for the Christmas Fair. Here’s a slideshow of some of the photos taken during this afternoon’s rehearsal.
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.
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.
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!
…… And here are the finished scarecrows!! We think they are great!
