World Book Day
What a great day we've had celebrating World Book Day! We know we've celebrated it a day late, but we thought it would be such a lovely way to end the week.
Today, adults and children alike all dressed as their favourite book characters and spent the day in their house groups.
As Hedgehog's house group leader, Miss Baglow spent the morning with her group looking at the book, 'Only One You' by Linda Kranz. The children recognised that Kranz celebrates the fact that we are all unique and different using rocks painted as fish to represent this. Some fish had similar patterns and colours, where as others were completely different. It didn't matter however, because each fish was special.
The children designed their own unique fish based on the book before painting their rocks.
We finished the day with a special assembly in front of parents. The children shared what they had been doing in their house groups, before parents joined them in class to complete a quick activity.
To celebrate Pancake Day, Class Lyn enjoyed some scrummy pancakes! They had a range of toppings to choose from including lemon and sugar, golden syrup, banana and chocolate spread. Chocolate spread was most definitely the favourite amongst the class.
The Calvert Trust
Last week, some of the Year 3 and 4 children enjoyed a fun-packed residential at The Calvert Trust. The children had such a wonderful time completing the following activities:
Archery, rock climbing, abseiling, zip wiring, crate stacking, horse riding, bike riding, swimming, dancing and play games.

Here comes the Bride...
As part of our 'Celebrations' topic, Class Bray and Class Lyn enjoyed their very own pretend wedding.
Leading up to the wedding, names were pulled out of the hat in order to find our blushing bride, our handsome groom and the rest of the wedding party.
On the day, the children arrived at St Peter's Church, where the wonderful Rev Rosie conducted the ceremony. The flower girls, page boys and bridesmaids led the way down the aisle before the bride and her father. Parents were invited to attend the ceremony before they joined us back at school for the wedding reception.
At the wedding reception, love-related music played quietly in the background, whilst parents and children enjoyed a buffet and sparking water. We even a delicious wedding cake!
It was so much fun and really brought the children's learning to life!
Thank you to all of the parents who attended the wedding and donated food.
Romans on the Rampage!
Class Lyn's topic this term is 'Romans on the Rampage'. As part of our wow day, the children came to school dressed as Romans, painted Roman shields and made Roman bread, clay pots and their very own mosaics.
