This week we have taken part in a sponsored obstacle course event, and have held our own mini Sports Day. Sadly, we had to do this without spectators this year, but the children worked hard at cheering on their friends to make up for it. We took part in running races, an egg and spoon race, and a ‘hoops and tunnels’ race. Everyone had a lot of fun!
We were SO pleased that our residential was finally able to happen! It’s been a long wait as it was postponed twice. Thank you to everyone at Norfolk Lakes who gave us a weekend to remember!
You may have seen some photos already on our school Facebook page, but here are some more pictures of everyone doing the activities. We took a LOT of photos so there will be some more still to come next week!
This week we took part in an obstacle race called ‘Browick Bootcamp’. This was a sponsored event run by the school. Denmark class absolutely smashed it and managed to run 31 laps between them! What a challenge but all of the children kept saying how much fun it was! It was such a hot day that the children got an ice lolly as a reward!
Well done Denmark Class!
Good morning everyone,
Well, we could not believe our eyes on Monday morning! We went for a little walk around our wildlife area and stumbled across………A BOG BABY! We have never seen one before and we were very excited but intrigued. There were all sorts of objects and clues as to what it could be and why he might be there. The children used their speaking and listening skills to explain their thoughts and ideas.
We came back to class the next day to discover there had been a delivery and inside was a book called ‘The Bog Baby’, and this gave us the information we needed! Problem solved! We listened to the story and afterwards, talked about what we liked and didn’t like about what happened in the story. The children thought that the Bog Baby sucking his toes was the funniest bit, but they also liked seeing hundreds of Bog Babies at the end of the story.
Until the end of term, we will have our PE lessons with Ryan from CSF. He’s been teaching us different football skills and games that we can play in teams. We had a great lesson today – despite the heat!
This week we have been creating artwork in the style of Beatriz Milhazes. She is an abstract artist from Brazil. We looked closely at her work and then chose bright colours and different materials to make our own piece.
All children in the school took part in a skipping workshop. George did the most skips in 2 minutes in our class. Well done George!This week we have been learning about healthy food and finding out about different food groups, such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. After we sorted food into healthy and unhealthy we made up a healthy lunchbox and a healthy meal that we would like at home. What is your favourite food?
This week we have had great weather to enjoy our second week at forest schools with Mr Rackham and Mrs Peel. We had a fantastic time climbing trees, building dens and investigating what is happening in the pond. It’s so lovely to be outside in the sunny weather.
