Today we made soup and bread for our Harvest Festival Service. It was lovely to share our poems, prayers and produce the children grew last year.
Have a lovely half-term break.
Our enquiry question this term is 'How are lives saved?' We have learnt about the circulatory system, drawing and painting hearts and making 'blood smoothies' to help understand the parts of blood.
A big thank you to Paul from Trustworhy Services and the mini-medics workshop. Philosophers enjoyed a first aid workshop on Friday. We learnt about basic first aid, the contents of a first aid kit, CPR and different types of bandages. Children had fun using bandages and manikins to practice their skills. We learnt about defibrillators and their importance in helping save lives.
The children were very busy, sharing experiences and learning from last week. They enjoyed sharing activities with the class.
We are very excited about our new enquiry curriculum. Ask your child about it. To find out more, join us on Friday 29th at 9.00 for celebration worship. FoLs are running a coffee morning straight after; they will have tea and coffee, biscuits and possibly cake. Please join us to share the children's learning and achievements.
Home learning this week: learn weekly spellings; Mathletics online learning; read at least 4 times to an adult.
PE is on Tuesday. Please bring a white t-shirt, blue/black shorts and trainers. A plain tracksuit is optional as the weather gets colder.
We completed our first day learning about fossils and making our own fossils.
Today we did a river study, a nature walk and ended the day with a campfire sing-song.
We left school with very excited children. We managed to get all the bags and cases on the bus.
We enjoyed our picnic lunch.
Our first activity was low ropes, this was very exciting, some water was involved ending up with damp children. Scroll down to see some photos of the fun and challenges the children have had.
Watch this space for more photos.
Welcome back to school. I hope you all had a lovely summer break.
Mrs Broomfield is the Class teacher, Mrs.Dyde and Mrs Brockway support learning in the classroom.
It was great to see the children back in school. We have welcomed new members to Philosophers Class this week, the children have been getting to know each other making new friends and ready to be the excellent role models we have come to expect from Year 6. Well done everyone a brilliant start for us all.
I am very excited about the year ahead as we begin our enquiry curriculum, we have started with an enquiry about our local community, Why is our local community important? We have discussed what makes a community, where do they belong and how we contribute to the community in which we live. They have looked at the rights of the child and class rules, why it is important to have rules and why it is important to have a voice as a child in school.
On Wednesday some of Philosophers Class will go to Hooke Court on our annual residential trip. This year we have a geography focus of exciting activities and fun. Including an orienteering and a camp fire.
