Year 6 enjoyed a French breakfast today, as part of their daily routines topic. The children all spent the first part of the lesson learning the French names of breakfast foods and drinks. Then, they asked (very politely) for the items that they wanted. After a very hearty “Bon Appetit” the children tucked in!
Today Year 1 and 2 enjoyed making stick men as part of forest school. They started the session by reading Julia Donaldson’s story “Stick Man”. After the story, the children went outside to play some forest school games and collected the things that theywould need to make their own stick men. The children had some fabulous ideas about how to make their stick men. They also used various techniques to join their materials together, including glue, string and pipe cleaners! At the end of the session the children came up with lots of ideas that they could use a stick for. My favourite was, “to make a stick man!”
We’ve reached the end of term and it’s been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to blog! Please enjoy a selection of photos from our Christmas activities. I have included a range of photos: Christmas parties, a visit from Santa, Christmas shopping, Christmas dinner, our KS1 Christmas show, our school trip to the pantomime and posting our letters to Santa. It’s been a whirlwind the last few weeks, but thoroughly enjoyable. I was particularly proud of the children’s confident and outstanding performances both singing, speaking and acting in our Christmas show (Ralph the Reindeer) and playing the ocarinas and hand bells at carols at the gate. Have a lovely break everyone, and I’ll look forward to seeing you all in 2020. Merry Christmas!
