International Day

We have had fabulous day today celebrating the diversity of several different countries. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting all the classes to see them designing and building their landmarks as well as smelling the delicious food dishes that were being created.
Nursery learnt about New Zealand and created their own hukka dance.
Reception learnt about Romania and made a super waterfall.
Year 1 experienced an African drumming workshop and discovered more about South Africa. Their model of Table Mountain in Cape Town was fantastic.
Year 2 were able to skype a teacher in the USA and ask him lots of interesting questions and their clay models of landmarks were spectacular.
Year 3 made a delicious French dressing and built the Eiffel Tower out of newspaper and French bread!
Year 4 made a truly magnificent model of The Rockies as part of their study of Canada and the children wrote some informative leaflets.
Year 5 put an incredible amount of effort into the planning and building of the pyramids.
Year 6 managed to build an excellent ancient temple from Mexico as well as the stunning statue of Christ the Redeemer in Brazil.
My map skills were tested as I drew the world map on the floor of the hall but all the landmarks looked amazing when they were put together.
Thank you so much to all the staff for their imaginative and inspiring planning and to the parents as always for their support and encouragement.DSCF5163

Eco council visit to RES







DSCF5140The Eco council enjoyed a fabulous visit to RES this week. As we are fortunate enough to have this facility on our doorstep the children were able to walk through the fields on a fresh winter day to get to their destination. We were told all about renewable engery and the children enjoyed seeing the electric car, solar pannels and wind turbine.

Geographical Games

Whilst shopping this week I came across a great range of geographical games and puzzles in John Lewis. Quizes would be good for oral starters.

It was fantastic to have a Year 4 visitor knocking ony classroom door to show me all the amazing research he had done on countries from around the world. I enjoyed reading all the facts and figures and discussing our favourite places.

Stormy weather

The stormy weather created a natural river system at school today! The water had obviously gathered on the flat roof and was periodically flowing over in the form of a waterfall. The water then eroded the muddy ground below forming a pool. The water overspilled onto the path and continued to flow downhill until it reached level ground. The children had great fun guessing when the gusts of wind would create the waterfall and following the river to find the destination of the water.
