Thank you to the children, staff and parents who attended the service of remembrance this morning at the Cenotaph. The children represented the Federation in laying the wreath.
Our new interactive screen is a massive hit with the children as they arrived this morning, as you can see they got involved in the exercises shown, what a great start to a day, healthy body and healthy mind.
Our football team played two games tonight, both ended 0-0, but Mr Steane said it was the best that he had seen them play, well done boys.
We went to Tatton Park yesterday to learn more about the Stone Age, which is our topic this term. We arrived in lovely sunshine and had a walk down to the farm area.
We learnt about the tools that we would have used in the Stone age, that are now things like knives and hoe’s, and we all had a go at polishing a piece of flint. The staff were very impressed with our knowledge of the Stone Age when they asked us questions.
We then walked past the deer and pigs up to the woodland.
We split into two groups and one group went and had a look at how people in the Stone age made fire using a fire bow, we all had a go and Mrs Deering made fire and lit the hay and the other group went gathering for food, then looked at the instruments we would have used to dig and plant seeds, such as antlers and shoulder bones, and we then had a go at grinding seeds to make flour.
We then had lunch and after we had a go at the activity we didn’t do in the morning.
After this we went and fed the chickens and went to see the pigs in the piggery. Then it was time to head home from a wonderful experience.
Key Stage 2 children took part in a Maths and Art cross curricular workshop yesterday. The workshops focus on the link between maths and art and cover spatial awareness, ratios, proportions, fractions, symmetry among other things. The workshop also looks at resilience, effort and language. The children had a lovely day and the results were fantastic,
The children have recently been asked to look at the school mission statement and make a short version of it. The children came up with – In Jesus’ way we learn, live and pray – we think this is brilliant, well done.
Following on from this we have made a new display in our entrance which looks lovely. Next week we will complete the one at St. Margaret’s.
