The rain didn't dampen the Snowy Owl's enjoyment and enthusiasm for Forest School this week. We investigated parts of plants and identified perfect and imperfect flowers. The children worked as a team to build shelters. We finished the session with marshmallows around the fire.
This week, children and staff across the school ran their first mile towards their half marathon. It was great to see children supporting and encouraging one another to complete the challenge.
Children in all classes began creating art work for our Jubilee display. We look forward to sharing it with you.
The Snowy Owls have painted, made and written their own cards to send to the residents of Springfields. As we have been unable to visit Springfields for some time, the children thought it would be nice to let the residents know that we are still thinking of them and that we hope to visit them again soon.
The Snowy Owls had a wonderful day exploring the Eden Project. The children were able to use their enquiry skills to learn more about how plants adapt to their environments in order to survive. The children asked fantastic questions which allowed them to deepen their understanding of our topic.
To celebrate the fact that Spring has begun, all of the children across the school have created a piece of art for the village display. We hope everyone in the community enjoys looking at the artwork!
During assembly today, the children spoke about Spring and how to care for and nurture living things. All the children had the opportunity to plant a sunflower seed, which they will take home with them and take responsibility for. We can't wait to see the results!
We wore red and and discussed how we can help others. We found out that Comic Relief raises money to help people live free from poverty, violence and discrimination. This includes funding organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine, and those attempting to cross the border. We have the power to change lives.
We learnt an extract from our new class text: An Anthology of Intriguing Animals. We used actions to help us to remember and retell the information from the book.
The children learnt so much from their First Aid Mini Medic course with Joe Rice. We are very grateful to FoBS who made the sessions possible.
The Snowy Owls have worked hard to present their final dragon stories for our class book. They have focused on their handwriting ensuring that letters are consistent in size and joined correctly.
A massive thank you to FoBS who have kindly funded some real plants for the Snowy Owl classroom. The plants really enhance our learning environment and it's great to bring the outside in!
The Snowy Owls have worked hard using pastels to create this wonderful display of Dragon eyes. This artwork links to the Dragon myths we are writing in English and our learning about Chinese history.
Well done to the Key Stage 1 runners who managed 2.5km at running club this week - a great effort by all.
As part of Children's Mental Health Week, we had a 'Well Being Wednesday'! The sessions focussed on how we can look after our mental health and well-being by taking time out to do something we enjoy!

In maths, the Snowy Owls have been setting measuring challenges for one another. They had to use their measuring skills to measure as accurately as possible.
Over the past few weeks in KS2 Yoga Club, we've been learning different positions, such as Mountain Pose and The Elephant. The children have been showing good flexibility, as seen here (Miss Bryant's been fine, but Mrs Reid has struggled to walk without discomfort the following day).
The Snowy Owls used pastels to create these dragon eyes. I think you will agree, they have done a fantastic job.
We learnt that to produce a sound with an instrument, you can strike, pluck or blow it. We discovered that these group of instruments are called percussion, string or wind. We made our own string instrument and plucked it to make a sound. We experimented with pitch and used our knowledge to explain what was happening.
