Japanese children’s day was celebrated a week late owing to their recent residential trip.
Nonetheless, Year 1 boys gained an insight into the culture of one of their peers and enjoyed participating in some traditional activities. They made koinobori (carp fish flags) and kabuto (Samurai helmets).
Year 1 parents were thrilled to be invited to their son's special assembly this week. They were entertained with a clever iPad book made by the whole class, real light-up lighthouses, the science behind an electric circuit, paintings and chalk art, acting and songs. Parents remarked on how proud they were of their sons who have become confident to speak in front of such an audience; and how happy they appeared whilst performing.
It was a truly fun assembly, enjoyed by all.
The Reception class have been colour mixing this week.
Using just the primary colours and mixing combinations of them to make enough different colours to decorate a Queen's quilt.
Year 1 have impressed with some exceptional writing about St. George and the Dragon.
Here is one example written by Anish D
This term the Year 2 boys are learning all about mini-beasts. They are thoroughly enjoying this topic.
The boys were set the task to make a mini-beast habitat for homework. Some of the habitats have real creepy crawlies in them! The boys are a very able and creative class and they always put 100% into the tasks set for them, along with the amazing support from their parents.
Well done Year 2.
