  • Friday 13 May 2022 Sign Language Club This week in BSL club and in Happy Hyenas we have continued learning British Sign Language. We loved British Sign Language Week so much that Mrs Wensley taught us some signs to help us to talk about our feelings. Cbeebies also marked British Sign Language Week with a Bedtime Story from actor Rose Ayling-Ellis. We were all fascinated to listen to Little Bear's story about the struggles of a deaf little bear growing up in a hearing household. We talked about how we could help Little Bear by making sure that our mouth can be seen when we are talking and we are speaking clearly. You can find out about Little Bear's Story by clicking the link below to listen to the story at home. Can bears ski That is the question!
  • Friday 13 May 2022 Dragons and Things The children in Terrific Tigers, Year One, have worked so hard this week, so on Friday they went outside to enjoy some independent learning. It was a sunny day and they took the chalks and some footballs onto the playground to explore. It was fantastic to see the children developing what they have been learning in class. They were solving maths problems, spotting phonics sounds and even drawing a dragons and characters from their English story!
  • Friday 13 May 2022 Year Three Reading and PE Year Three have really enjoyed Talk for Reading this term and have been reading "Leon and the Place Between" written by Angela McAllister and Grahame Baker Smith.

Marvellous Meerkats have also been working very hard during their Athletics session in P.E. They are developing their speed, movement and flexibility techniques.

The children shared their experiences of their different cultures and heritages and celebrated what makes us all so different and special.

  • Friday 29 April 2022 Busy Bees Farm Trip On Friday, the children in Busy Bees had a great time at the DRET farm. It was lovely to see the children have the opportunity to hold rabbits, guinea pigs, feed goats, pigs and lambs. They even had chance to collect some fresh eggs to make eggy bread yum. We are so lucky to have a farm just for our schools!
  • Friday 29 April 2022 How Tall? This week Terrific Tigers had a very fun science lesson. Their new topic is all about plants and our challenge was to see who could build the longest stem in 10 minutes using just paper and masking tape! The children showed fantastic team work as they shared ideas and worked together. It was lovey to see the different structures, some rolled the paper and some scrunched it. The tallest one was so tall they had to stand on a chair to complete it. Amazing work Tigers!
  • Friday 29 April 2022 Goalball On Tuesday Brandonlee, Kieran and Ethan all took part in a Goalball competition. Unfortunately, the trio were not victorious. However, they did very well considering it was the first time any of them had played Goalball! Goalball is a very tricky sport played in the Paralympics for the visually impaired. This meant the children had to wear a blindfold for the duration of the competition and would need to listen out for the ball (which had a bell in it). This made for some very exciting and funny moments. All the boys had a lot of fun and did the school proud. Well done boys!
  • Friday 29 April 2022 Book and Biscuit is Back! The very popular Book and Biscuit on Thursday morning is now back on. Mrs Appleby was impressed by how many parents came to enjoy reading to their child whilst the children had a nice biscuit. Please join us on any and every Thursday to take part with your child.

  • Friday 22 April 2022 WOW Day In Year Four Year Four kicked off their learning for the summer term through a series of activities linked to the topics they will be studying in science, reading and Latin. For reading, they began to explore the wide variety of beetles that can be found across the world, where they began to discuss the similarities, differences and beautiful patterns that many beetles have. They were then able to use natural resources (such as leaves, twigs, etc) to create a model of their favourite beetle, before adding colour and detail to resemble that of their chosen beetle. We cannot wait to get stuck into 'The Beetle Collectors Handbook' and continue reading our class novel, 'Beetle Boy', both of which have been written by M.G. Leonard. In science, we will be studying ecology and classification, so the children had a go at creating their own mini terrariums suitable for small bugs, insects and spiders. Following this, we embarked on a mini beast hunt to collect residents for our terrariums, which we will for
  • Friday 22 April 2022 Virtual Visits Year Three kicked off their Geography topic on Wow Day with a pretend trip to London touring all the sights. They also created tissue paper bunting, wrote acrostic poems, shared stories about visits and researched some famous landmarks.

The group hope you had a great birthday Queen Elizabeth! Year Three are learning all about London and the Royal Family as part of our Core Knowledge Curriculum.

What a super busy first week back! The group can’t wait to deepen their knowledge throughout the rest of this term.

The children took part in a variety of activities with the aim of developing their team work, confidence and resilience when approaching challenges. On day 1, they were able to visit the Big Pit Museum, venture deep into the mines and explore the local mining history of Wales. In addition to this, the children took part in a night walk around the local village where they relied upon a variety of senses to find their way back to the Govilon Activity Centre. On day two, they took part in a Gorge Walking experience, where children were able to climb a local mountain, walk under waterfalls and slide across rocks in the gorge (this was lots of fun!) On the final day, they went on a hill walk where they were able to see some marvelous views (they even sung happy birthday to Mrs Appleby, all the way from Wales!)
