Across school there has been lots of hard work from dissecting fish in Kestrels class, some excellent Shelbourne movement sessions to tricky multiplication in Owls. Alison and I were very pleased to be able to walk around the inside now it has a roof but also to be able to climb the scaffolding staircase to look over the roof scape and the land.
So the pupils explored their own recipes using the ingredients — Ethan B has a very sweet tooth while Abbi prefers the butter!. On Monday many of the pupils had their swimming session at the leisure centre.
Children are usually provided with a mini-whiteboard each, and use it to write on in the classroom. All have had a super time and it has been good to see the smiling but rather tired faces on their return! I hope to see you at our Summer Fayre tomorrow.
Back at school, Key Stage 2 Forest schools also had a great session on Wednesday in some very muddy and wet conditions. This is to help ensure we know everyone has received it as paper sometimes seems to go missing!
They have tried lots of activities including the Zipwire, caving in an artificial cave and the Tarzan swing which apparently is as scary as it sounds! You can read later down the newsletter about the students training for Duke of Edinburgh bronze award.
Misspellings of words that pupils have been taught to spell should be corrected; other misspelt words can be used as an opportunity to teach pupils about alternative ways of representing those sounds.
They saw wonderful team work and focus at Forest schools with pupils achieving extremely well. The visitors were impressed with how welcoming our pupils are and how well they mix with each other and support each other.
Once again I would like to thank the staff who give up so much of their time voluntarily to make this happen. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the rides although some of the staff looked a little green when talking about them!. So far throughout the project it has been great to see how our young people have thrived on new challenges and have surpassed all of our expectations.
I hope you have a good few weeks and I wish you all the best for the New year. This week we have had our Health and Sports week.
Pupils really enjoyed the yoga sessions at lower although Lotta ached a bit after all of the sessions on Monday too!From adjectives to writing frames, TheSchoolRun's primary-school literacy glossary offers a complete guide to all the concepts children are taught in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 English.
