CRAZY HAIR DAY
Take a look back at Crazy Hair Day from last Friday and enjoy all the fun follicles on display!
On Thursday Year 3 took part in a workshop from the first Carbon Neutral Theatre Company called Pigfoot! We streamed their production called 'How to Save a Rock' (meaning the earth) where all props were made of recycled materials, and all lights/electricity were powered by bike energy. The show is set in the year 2026 where a group of friends receive a letter from the last ever group of polar bears facing extinction! The friends go on a mission to fight climate change and learn about how trees and bogs help soak up the carbon in our atmosphere. As a result, this help to reverse global warming and save the polar bear species! After watching the show, the Y3 children took part in a live workshop with the show's director where they worked in groups to come up with a performance for "I feel... I can... and I am..." statements, all themed around climate change.
This all links nicely to Earth Day last month and the non-fiction eco booklets that they will be writing in English next week!
Year 2 have been busy this week checking on how their sunflower and broad bean seeds are growing! The sunflowers are doing well and we’ve started to get some roots for the broad beans.
In Humanities we have been researching ‘The Big Five’ as part of our Kenya topic. We used books and the iPads to look up interesting facts about the different animals. We then presented them to the class!
Year 1 have kicked off their ‘Loving London’ topic this half term, exploring London landmarks. They did a traffic tally and realised how many cars travel along busy roads so have been thinking about more sustainable and safe modes of transport.
This week the year enjoyed exploring the forest school area we are developing at the back of the playground.
The aim was to promote resilience, team building and imagination; along with so much more!
The children we told to imagine the ground was boiling hot lava.... how would they get across?!
It was enjoyed by them all and we look forward to providing more information of how we're developing this area including the famous Bug Hotel!
Clubs and Activities
This week in LEGO Club, the Year One children created boats and tested them to see if they floated on water!

What a spread was put on by Angela and team for Cinco de Mayo including cactus cupcakes and non-alcoholic margaritas!
