Model Anderson Shelters

Having played autumn games and learnt how to write instructions, we wrote our own instructions for how to build a model Anderson Shelter, for our World War 2 topic. 

Then we followed the instructions to make them:

Autumn Games

Fun was had by all, playing Flap the bat in the hall. Much wafting caused the paper bats to fly above the ground! Playing autumn games is one of our 100 memorable events.

We listened to instructions to help us and learnt how instructions are written down. 

Then we played apple bobbing in the autumn sun...

Learning to play the ukulele

This was a very exciting day for us- the start of a term of weekly lessons, learning to play the ukulele. By the end of the session, we were playing the chord of C and using this to accompany a song!

Active Maths

We have been up and about, working out which numbers are represented by different apparatus. Working in pairs helps us to reason or justify our answers.

The Blitz

Our new Year 3 and 4 pupils have been making models of gas masks, then experiencing what it feels like when an air raid siren goes off and you have to find shelter and put on your gas mask...

Some people in the class have relatives who lived through the Second World War and have brought in items from their family to show the other children- first hand evidence, which is exciting for the children to see. Thank you...

Barn Owls and Tawny Owls big sleepover!

On Friday 8th February, all the way through until Saturday 9th February, Barn Owl and Tawny Owl children had a giant sleepover, at school!

Having left our bags in Rabbits Class, we wrapped up warm and took our torches outside, to play hide and seek, sardines and a lighthouse game in the dark. Playing games in the dark is one of our 100 memorable events...

When we came in, we unpacked our things and made our beds ready for bedtime later, before settling down with our friends to play games on our beds. 

Then time for hot chocolates (with all the trimmings) and a bedtime story before cleaning teeth and going to bed...

Before we knew it, it was the next morning! Everybody was packed up before bacon or jam butties for breakfast. Then it was time for more fun with our friends...

To get ready to go home, we carried all our kit back to Rabbits Class and, whilst waiting for our parents, did some yoga!

Everybody enjoyed our sleepover- children and staff...Everybody was happy and positive and resilient- all superstars at a big school sleepover...

World Book Day

We were very colourful on World Book Day, in our costumes...

We shared books that we had chosen from home, made book marks and drew and wrote about favourite characters from books. We love books in Barn Owls!
