A Snail and the Whale
On Friday 8th June all of the Early Years classes went on a trip to Radlett Theatre to see “A Snail on a Whale” This was based on the book that had been read in class as part of our Ignite.
The children were excited by their trip on a coach and we very excited to see the performance.
All the children were engaged and willing participant of the production. at one point we were treated to a spray of water!
Many thanks to Foms who enabled the children to have a treat while watching.
We managed to take a few candid photos from the trip.
We’re going on a Bear hunt!
This morning Ruby class went to the dell to experience retelling the story with a twist.
Mrs Lawes had prepared some tyres filled with grass, water, mud, cottonwool and sticks to represent the actions in the book.
As you can see they walked through the tyres bare footed with help from Amethyst class, who encouraged Ruby class to carry on.
Then came the alternative Bear Hunt. Miss Smith was the first to try! We had baked beans, shaving foam, porridge mixed with water, hay and finished with cold cooked spaghetti.
Some of Ruby class were keen, some had a go with help from Year 6.
Then we let the Year 6 try it for themselves.
Many thanks to Amethyst class for their encouragement and help with the younger children.
Our Royal Wedding Picnic
A busy morning making cakes, sandwiches, fruit and vegetables, for our picnic.
The children watched a video of the royal engagement and saw the castle where the wedding will take place.
They helped decorate cupcakes with Harry and Megan designs and were busy helping make jam sandwiches.
We had carrots, cucumber and grapes to cut.
As a special treat we had jelly and icecream.
They also had cake design and bunting to make.
They all looked brilliant in their red, white and blue.
Down in the woods topic
Opal and topaz have been learning about things in the woods.
We have been lucky to have some live butterflies pupate, and emerge into painted lady butterflies.
We have searched for mini beasts and made lists of our findings.
The children have made some ladybirds and butterflies for our display.
Vikings and Anglo Saxons
The class have been learning about how the vikings lived.
They have discovered how they built their ships, the homes they lived in and some of their customs.
The class has also looked at some of the Mythical legends and creatures. There has been some super art work from the children drawing their own mythical creatures.
Here are some of their fantastic designs.
