Worship Day 2018
We had a school worship day on Wednesday 27th June.
First we went to our local church and looked at some banners which a local lady had made showing Jesus as "I am..." in many different ways.
Here we had a chance to talk about what we could see and what the pictures meant.
When we got back to class we all made a sheep and these have been placed on a school collage to show "I am the Good Shepherd."
Rev. Selina and Anne were in the school hall and we learnt about the colours which are used in by Church and the meanings behind the colours.
Finally, in the afternoon we made a class collage to show "I am the light of the world."
Summer Term has already been full with lots of exciting activities.
We spent the first half of the term doing Forest School. Here we made clay caterpillars on trees, made natural art collages and coloured in fairies with natures products. We also went on a bug hunt and made clay bugs. We had a camp fire every week and ate lots of different food including toasted marshmallows, shmores and hotdogs!
We also kept caterpillars and enjoyed watching them grow and change into cocoons. We managed to set up the camera and watch some of the butterflies emerge live on our Interactive Whiteboard! It was amazing to see! We then went out to the secret garden and released the butterflies. They spent time warming up in the sun allowing Badgers to watch them in the wild before they flew off.
We had a very busy Spring Term learning about the Arctic and dinosaurs. We celebrated Chinese New Year and had a Chinese Banquet.
We went to Taunton Museum where we had a dinosaur dig and we made dinosaur movements in PE pretending to be lots of different dinosaurs!
Our story this half of term is 'The Jolly Postman." We have been exploring the stories within this and so far we have read 'Goldilocks and the three bears' and 'Hansel and Gretel." We are going to look at 'Jack and the Beanstalk'', 'Cinderella' and 'Little Red Riding Hood' over the next coming weeks. We have had a lot of fun learning the stories and still have many other activities to look forward to. We have also learnt about Diwali, Bonfire night and Remembrance Day.
We had a very busy first half of the Autumn term and settled in well. We got up to lots of things. Our stories were 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', 'Monkey Puzzle' and 'The Little Red Hen.' As part of our topic work we looked at ourselves, autumn and Harvest. Take a look at our photos to see what we got up to!
