Lea Green Y5 & 6

In September, Year 5 & 6 went to Lea Green to take part in a team-building day. We had a great time and learnt how to achieve tasks better with the help of our friends and classmates. We have carried on doing team-building tasks as part of our PSHCE work back at school.

Christmas Card Project 2018

Welcome to our Christmas Card Project which we are once again undertaking with Art Projects for Schools Ltd (APFS).

The artwork your child has created will be accurately reproduced in full colour onto Christmas cards that are available in packs of 12. Additional items are also available such as wrapping paper, packs of 6 larger gloss coated Christmas cards and packs of 12 folded gift tags. The quality of reproduction is excellent as is the quality of the cards; samples are available to view in the school reception.

There is no obligation to purchase these cards and should you decide not to, there is no need to return the artwork to school.

Should you decide to order, simply visit www.apfsorders.co.uk and input the unique code found on the form on the reverse of your child’s artwork.

Thank you!

Arts Week Key Stage 1

During Arts week, children in key stage 1 listened to traditional tales from Ireland. They sang songs and tried out a range of craft and art activities. They also enjoyed having a go at Irish dancing and dancing round the maypole.

Reception – Outdoor Learning Week

During our ‘Outdoor Learning Week’ the Reception children took part in lots of large scale art projects and practical challenges around the school grounds. Look at the children developing their observational art skills on the school field!

Arts Week – EYFS

During Arts Week, the EYFS children learnt about English Folklore Tales. We used the story of Tom Thumb and Robin Hood as inspiration for our creative activities throughout the week. The children took part in ‘Maypole Dancing’ workshops and a musical ‘Spoons’ session. The children had lots of fun and developed a range of new skills. They also made a small Tom Thumb puppet and a shoebox house / garden for him to live in! Well done to all the EYFS children for all their hard work and creativity throughout the week.

Year 3 Fun2Run – Champions…again!

We had a fantastic afternoon at Holmebrook Valley Park for the Year 3 ‘Fun2Run’ competition. Five boys and five girls from Year 3 took part in the big race! All the children were amazing, with some stand-out performances from individual runners. In the end, both teams ran so well that they won the entire competition overall, and brought back another huge winners’ cup to add to our ever growing collection. Brilliant!

Jorvik- here we come!

On Wednesday 11th April, all the children in Year 3 and 4 pupils travelled to York to visit the Viking exhibition at Jorvik. They all had an absolutely brilliant day learning about the Vikings and their influence on Britain, and trying out their archaeology skills too. It really did inspire everyone’s interest in this term’s topic.

River Models –Year 5/6

As part of their topic, ‘What has a mouth but cannot speak?’, the children have worked really hard, to create their own unique river valleys, showing all the parts of a river system. They have learnt all about the features and their names.
