African Day

The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.

The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.

The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;

As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.

Minibeast Maddness – Caterpillars

We have enjoyed reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ in class this week. Some of us were already very familiar with this book. We have used fruit to print in the painting area and we are all very proud of our Caterpillars. This week we were very excited about a special delivery, our class Caterpillars! We have looked at their life cycle and we are looking forward to watching our Caterpillars change!

Pentecost; the celebration of the Good News of Jesus

This week we have listened to the story of Pentecost. Jesus’ friends were all very sad after He had died but they knew that He would send the Holy Spirit to them. At first the disciples could hear and feel a strong wind in the room where they were gathered. Next they saw the flames come and rest upon each of them. The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and they began to talk in many different languages. We spent time talking about how we thought the disciples might have felt that day. We each coloured in a flame and made a Holy Spirit hat to remind us that we too are friends of Jesus and we should also be spreading the Good News of God just like the disciples did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Minibeast Madness – Ladybirds

We have enjoyed reading ‘The Bad Tempered Ladybird’ and loved joining in with the story. Some of us chose to paint a picture of a ladybird and we looked at its spots and tried to count out the legs onto the ladybird. During maths this week we have been recognising numerals and adding the correct amount of spots to the ladybird’s back.

 

Thursday’s Visit to the Farm

Thursday’s Visit to the Farm

When we arrived at the farm our first stop was the chick barn. We all had the chance to hold one of the chicks. We had to make sure that we were very gentle and quiet. The chicks were soft and fluffy.

After that we walked over to see the rabbits and the guinea pigs.

   

Lynn from the farm took us over to meet more of her farm yard friends- the llamas, pigs and the highland cows. Some of us had to feed the llamas by pouring food down the shoot.

We then went to meet some of the newest arrivals to the farm. First we had the chance to say hello and feed the pygmy goats and their kids. We then met some of the lambs and the sheep who were about to have their babies very soon!

In the next barn we went to see some of the bigger pigs and the alpacas.

 

We were very excited when we all had the chance to bottle feed the lambs. They were only 2 weeks old! We had to make sure that we held the bottle up so that the air didn’t get in

In the afternoon we had the chance to see wallabies, chickens, the giant turkey and Percy the peacock. We finished the day with a fantastic tractor ride around the very muddy farm.

Sadly, it was time to go home. We all had a wonderful day and the children were a credit to our school.
