Our Harvest and Healthy Living Week
We have spent the last few weeks giving thanks for Harvest and also promoting healthy living. One of our farming families also donated resources for our younger pupils to make some Harvest Scarecrows.
Science and Technology
The upper school have been completing science investigations comparing different forms of exercise and the impact on their pulse rates. They have ensured fair testing by repeating tests and building in equal rest periods.
After half term the Y2/3 class will receive toothbrushes and we are hoping to organise a virtual tour of a dental surgery with Mr Simkin, a parent and a dentist.
Our Y4/5/6 musicians composed and performed a piece of music on the theme of journeys using a range of tuned and untuned instruments. One depicted searching food and used tribal music as their inspiration and another showed the journey of water from source to the sea.
Language, Literacy and Communication
Our youngest class learnt and performed the Talk for Writing story 'Little Red Hen.' It is remarkable to think that our reception children have only been with us for a matter of weeks.
Humanities, including RE and Collective Worship
We have engaged in class assemblies with the theme of Harvest and also enjoyed our regular Open the Book online assemblies. Our RE focus has been on pilgrimages.
