Last Friday the PTFA organised a summer fayre for the children to enjoy. There were lots of fun games such as splat the rat, tombola, a human fruit machine and lolly game. The children all really enjoyed it. A big thank you to the PTFA.
The Reception children have been so excited because a fairy has visited us over the last couple of weeks. They have been writing letters to her and being very imaginative in their play! n forest school reception children have painted a large white sheet with summer flowers and transformed it the next week by painting dragons eggs! They have also made nature fairies using sticks and natural objects.
This term, the children in Year 3 have been learning about biomes and vegetation belts in Geography. The children learnt all about the different biomes across the world and then created a ‘Biome in a Box’ to demonstrate their understanding of the climate, landscape, plants and animals in specific regions.
In History the children have been exploring the Maya civilisation who began long ago in a place called Mesoamerica. This huge area is made up of Mexico and part of Central America and a large part of this is rainforest. The children learnt all about event masks and death masks and then designed their own.
Last week the Pre-school children went walking up the field looking at the summer trees when a little bee buzzed past…. this then inspired us to make our own bees to decorate our area with. The children used glue and paint to make our bees with and they used their fine motor skills to cut out the wings.
