During Wellbeing Day Pine 2 completed a range of fun activities. They talked about the importance of exercise and healthy eating. They completed an assault course in the hall and explored their physical abilities riding bikes, playing ball games and joining in with go noodle activities. During the afternoon the children discussed healthy eating. They explored the fruit using their senses. The children then got creative and made their own fruit pictures. Once they were finished they enjoyed eating the fruit.
This week in Literacy, Maple 2 became journalists and reported on the story Zog and The Flying Doctors.
We read the story and talked about the most exciting parts of it.
The pupils learnt some characteristics which should be included in a newspaper article including a headline and who, what, when and how.
Some children co-constructed the article and others told the story through pictures. Well done Maple 2.
Elm1 have been learning all out the Jewish celebration of Shabbat. The children have learned that Shabbat is a very special day where Jewish families come together for a special meal.
On Tuesday, Birch 1 went for an Educational Visit to Mesnes Park in Wigan. They all had a lovely time, and loved feeding the birds (and the pigeons), they all got very excited when they ate the bird seed! After that the children enjoyed playing on the playground with their friends and having a picnic lunch.
What a fantastic week Ash 1 have had, with lots of learning taking place! We learnt all about heavy and light and used balance scales to explore weight. Our story is ‘Aliens love underpants’ so we identified characters, designed and made our own spaceships and aliens, linking to our story. In PE, we explored the sensory circuits and the different ways we could move along the equipment. Then in Science we explored dead flowers, focusing on why flowers need water and sunlight to grow before taking part in a Shabbat celebration for RE. Finally, our letter of the week in phonics is ‘d’ so we learnt the letter sound and practiced our writing skills!
The Early Years children enjoyed our whole school Wellbeing Day which consisted of fun activities prepared for us in the Bike Area, Big Playground and the hall.
The children enjoyed accessing the specialist Bike equipment 🚲 for the first time!
On top of this, we’ve also had lots of fun creating our own fruit salads 🥗 all before some yoga! 🧘♀️
