Vaisakhi

We were really lucky to have a speaker in to tell us the story of Vaisakhi and teach us some songs. A big thank you to Mrs Dhesi who made us some delicious, traditional food that we all loved!

 

 

 

Our Trip to Stirley Farm

Class One thoroughly enjoyed themselves at Stirley Farm and were impeccably behaved. It was a kick start to our new topic of ‘Global Gardens’ and has got the children really enthused and wanting to get out to develop our own garden. We played games, looked at plants under a microscope, made our own plat pot, planted a runner bean as well as a quick visit to the cows! Our runner beans came back to school with us and we are now taking care of them in the garden.

 

Curriculum

As part of our ‘Flying High’ topic; we evaluated, designed and made our very own kites. Here are some photos of us testing whether they fly!

Forest School

We all sat around a campfire during our first Forest school session. The children were very sensible and followed the rules to the letter. We retold the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and then made our very own trolls – learning skills such as drilling and tying knots. To round of our morning we returned to the campfire for a hot chocolate which was well received by both children and staff! 

We practiced our measuring and cutting skills when we made stuffed pittas.  They were lovely!

  
  

  

Class 1 have completed their topic on Light and Dark this half term by celebrating lighting a sparkler. The children learnt about the risks and dangers of using a sparkler and all the children followed the rules with great care. The children enjoyed their sparkler very much.

Year 1 and Year2 have a music lesson every Monday lead by Kirklees Music School. At the moment we are learning different tones and pitches using hand bells. 

 Our Topic has been focused around houses and homes. We received letters from a 4th Little Pig who wanted us to test out different materials for the building and roof of her new house.  We didn't have any rain to test the roof - so we used a watering can! We didn't have a wolf to huff and puff to test the roof  if the building was strong enough - so we used a hairdryer!
