Term 4

Week 1

Marching music, captivating cricket, steady sewing. This week has been packed with new opportunities for the children. First, the children experienced their first cricket session of the term. Then, the children created protest music to march to. Finally, the children got to practise sewing for our sustainable sandwich bag project.

 

Of course, their pens got a workout too. The children were able to complete their Grimm's Tales. It took a lot of work: self-correcting, responding to feedback, up-levelling, but the final products are something to be really proud of.

Week 5

Empty classroom and full brains. The children have enjoyed their last week of the term and are ready for a well deserved break. It has been a busy one this week with Internet Safety Day and Mental Health Week. The children talked about their needs as people to thrive and also discussed how to stay safe online by avoiding persuasive techniques used by people on the net.

This week, the children dressed up and enjoyed activities based around NSPCC's Numbers Day.
