NASA space training for Neptune Class

Today was the day that Neptune Class completed their NASA astronaut training, to see if they had the necessary skills to make them effective astronauts.

They started their training with an encouraging message from the amazing Tim Peake.

Once they were all ready with their astronaut badges and training logs they all reported to mission control for further instructions.

Then they began their gruelling afternoon of training, which consisted of six activities that would test their physical, social and mental skills.

Woah where did that month go????

Not sure what happened there – but the month of December just flew by in KS1!!!

We have been so busy that we haven’t managed to keep on top of our blog, but before we start our blog posts for the New Year of 2019, we thought we would just say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who reads our blog.  It would be lovely if in 2019 a few more of our followers could post a reply too – the children love to see what visitors to our blog think.

London Skyline

Miss Griffin, who teaches art in our PPA sessions, has created this fantastic London Skyline with the art work produced by our Year 1 and 2s.

Their art topic this term has been drawing, and the children have been exploring different ways to draw lines and design patterns using sketching pencils and pens. Their drawing warm ups consisted of repeatedly drawing shapes of different sizes. 

Then the children looked carefully at the shapes of iconic London buildings and sketched outlines of them. Finally all of the techniques learned were pulled together and the children used vibrant oil pastels to create this wonderful piece of art.

Children In Need

The whole school supported Children in Need on Friday by ‘Doing their Thing’.

Children and staff came to school dressed and ready to share their thing……….a thing they love doing, a thing they’ve always wanted to do or just a thing they could do.

By doing ‘our thing’ and collecting coins on the Pudsey Coin fills we are doing our little bit to change children’s lives across the UK.

Miss Shaw shared  her thing- her two beautiful dogs, Luna and Bella. The children got to walk them and feed them if they wanted to.

Miss Warrener share her thing – yoga. There were a few giggles in these sessions!

Mrs Carpenter would have loved to take the children to do one of her favourite things – walking in the woods, but there was not time, so instead she brought the woods to them and the children created forest creatures using cones.  Mrs Tyler shared a new found talent with the children an taught them how to play the ukulele!

Thank you as always to our wonderful families and their children for their support with this event.

Remembering

This week in KS1 we have been REMEMBERING in our class liturgies.

We have been remembering ….

… those who have been involved in war;

… those who have fought in war;

… those who have been injured or died;

… and also friends and families who are no longer with us. x

Each child wrote the name of someone who they wanted to remember or thank and then during the response, they each laid their poppy in the centre in the shape of a wreath.

Later all of the poppies from KS1 were turned into a larger wreath and displayed in the corridor alongside our statue of St Thomas More. 

The children have shared been some very moving, happy and touching stories and memories and it has been lovely to see the children looking for the names of their loved ones on the wreath.  They have also brought in photographs from home of some of their heroes.
