Broadening Our Horizons Through Lifelong Learning

Reception make daisy chains

The reception children enjoyed making daisy chains today. It was very tricky but that did not matter: we always try!

Year 2 investigate exercise

Class 2 investigated how exercise affects our bodies. They compared the pulse and heart-beat before and after exercise. They discussed the function of the heart and the importance of exercise and a healthy diet.

Year 2 play Samba!

Class 2 enjoyed learning about Samba music. They were taught about the drum instrument and learnt to play different beats and rhythms.

Year 5 meditate!

Year 5 have looked at the practice of meditation and discussed its religious roots and how it is widely practised by all for mental health purposes. Some of the children really loved it and wish to do it more at home.

Reception class – SCARF session

In their Scarf lesson today, the Rainbows talked about the importance of keeping a healthy mind. As being in nature and getting active help to look after our mental health, EYC went to the field together to go cloud watching. Would you believe we saw unicorns, bunnies and police cars in the clouds? Amazing! 

Year 5 at Into University

Class 5 had a super time Into University for our Greek Day! We learned about the Olympics, children in Ancient Greece, architecture and democracy. We also made Greek masks to portray a character from a Greek myth we have learned.

Year 2 – Geography

In Geography, Class 2 have been learning about why people leave their homes. These are called push and pull factors. The children worked together to discuss and sort push and pull factors.

Year 3 create animations

In computing, Class 3 learned how to create animations. We used lots of new skills, including duplicating frames, adding sound and onion skinning! Tomorrow, we will use these skills to make our own Roman invasion animation.

Year 4 write on the tables!

In English, Class 4 children were allowed to write on tables!!! We did this to help the children think of all the things they might see, hear, feel and smell in a rainforest, ready for their descriptive piece of writing.

Forest School exploring

Wow!! We love outdoor learning and being in the forest school area! We have found lots of interesting flora and fauna, such as flowers, creatures, wasp nests, twigs and much more! We love exploring!

Year 2 – Our Futures Project

Class 2 had some visitors from Our Future Project and the children found out about a range of different jobs which they could pursue. They engaged in various practical activities aimed to develop particular skills.

EYC get baking!

EYC have been busy making bread. Just like The Little Red Hen had done in this week’s story. We enjoyed making them but the eating was even better!

Year 3 paint Roman busts

Class 3 enjoyed painting their Roman busts and adding embellishments as part of their Wider Opportunities session. Don’t they look beautiful?!

Year 5 Greek food tasting

Class 5 tried Greek food tasting as part of our ‘hook’ sessions last week. Some of us LOVED it… some of us, not so much!😁We were able to articulate our experience using some key vocabulary.

Year 1 design their own castles

What a super DT day Class 1 have had making castles with a moving drawbridge. The children have done brilliantly. Well done to all.

Year 1 enjoy programming

What a great programming lesson Class 1 had! The children are selecting program blocks to make the Sprite character move on the scratch junior app.

EYC Spring Term Award winners

Well done to the wonderful children in EYC who received special achievement awards.  We are so proud of you!

Award winner for Spring Term

An enormous well done to our achievement, behaviour and kindness award winners for Spring Term. We are very proud of you!

Year 6 Young Reader Programme

Year 6 loved their big book reveal as part of the Young Reader Programme at National Literacy Trust. For children to be able to individually choose their own books is just incredible and is enhancing our reading culture even more. The children are so grateful and happy.

Always Award – Glow in the Dark Dodgeball!

Another choice for Glow in the dark dodgeball sessions for the end of term Always Award, rewarding the children who ALWAYS do the right thing! We had so much fun!
