In Y1, we had a great day celebrating Comic Relief in Y1! We all came as superheroes and people who are heroes to us! We had lots of Supergirls, Supermen, Bat men and Batgirls.
We learned about the importance of Comic Relief and all of the good things it does to help people living incredibly tough lives.
It’s wonderful having all of our children back at school and carrying on with our Forest School.
First activity… mud painting!
After donning our wetsuits and wellies, we set about collecting twigs, herbs and mud.
The herb we collected was rosemary, we gave it a good sniff… it smelt delightful.
We then attached it to a twig to make our brush… it was a little tricky for some of us, but we helped each other.
We were so proud of the brushes we had made.
Then we scooped, stirred and mixed our mud with bubbly water (which also smelt fabulous!) and added magic coloured powder to make our amazing mud paint.
We painted with the mud, it was different to our usual paint but we liked the patterns we could make with it.
Our fabulous creations!
We had fun in the Mud Kitchen today… we went on a worm hunt!
First we worked together to lift the logs to search for worms…it was wet and warm under there and that’s what worms like…the children were very brave and picked them carefully up.
We collected lots of worms, chatting about how we looked after all insects and creatures.
So we then decided that we needed to make a home for them.
We got a container and decided to fill it with leaves, sand, grass and some wet sloppy mud… all the things that worms love and then we popped them in their new home…
they absolutely loved it…
…and so did we!
For World Book Day, the children in the Year 3 Bubble demonstrated their artistic talents and illustrated their favourite book characters. The children framed their creations and entered their artwork into our Year 3 Potato Gallery.
WBD: Can you guess any of the famous book characters?

What an end to a strange but wonderful half term. Year one finished by showing each other what makes them unique. We all watched with admiration at each others talents and we had such a mixture!
Hussain showed us some amazing karate moves. He was like a real life ninja!
Hollie did an outstanding performance singing and dancing. She said it makes her very happy.
This week, both in school and at home, the Year 5 children have been completing activities centred around staying safe online.
For their first task, they created posters informing children of the SMART rules for staying safe online.

For their second task, they looked at advertising and how people use social media to advertise and promote products.
For their final task, they discussed a range of activities and actions that people can undertake online and decided how risky these actions and activities are and why.
Y2 have been learning about Internet Safety this week. First we asked the question ‘What is the internet?’
We discussed ways that we keep safe on the internet and learned that the everything we read on the internet is not always true. Then we used what we have learned to complete a quiz on Purple Mash.
We all had some fantastic ideas on how to stay safe with the main rule being: if in doubt check with an adult first!
The children love our creative area.
It enables provision of a new set of skills for self expression and communication as well as giving an outlet for them to express and cope with their feelings.
There is no right or wrong, we encourage the children to try out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem solving, as well as being able to practise and develop known skills…
just look at the concentration on these lovely faces…
… and their fabulous creations and happy faces!
Some of our children’s creative master pieces, all unique and individual…

We love celebrating our children’s creativity!
