Reception were lucky to have three parent visitors who came in to talk the class about their topic about keeping healthy.
Mrs Charlton is an orthodontist and came in to talk to the boys about how to look after their teeth. The boys also had great fun cleaning the giant teeth Mrs Charlton brought in and each boy got a gift bag with things to help keep their teeth healthy.
Mr Smith came to talk to the class about how their eyes work and brought in models of an eye and activities people might do if they visited his eye clinic.
Dr Heath came in to tell the class about what he does and how to keep healthy. He brought in his doctors bag and the boys tried out some of the instruments.
Thank you so much to our visitors the class had a great time with each one!
Japanese children’s day was celebrated a week late owing to their recent residential trip.
Nonetheless, Year 1 boys gained an insight into the culture of one of their peers and enjoyed participating in some traditional activities. They made koinobori (carp fish flags) and kabuto (Samurai helmets).
Year 1 have impressed with some exceptional writing about St. George and the Dragon.
Here is one example written by Anish D
Year 1 parents were thrilled to be invited to their son's special assembly this week. They were entertained with a clever iPad book made by the whole class, real light-up lighthouses, the science behind an electric circuit, paintings and chalk art, acting and songs. Parents remarked on how proud they were of their sons who have become confident to speak in front of such an audience; and how happy they appeared whilst performing.
It was a truly fun assembly, enjoyed by all.
The Reception class have been colour mixing this week.
Using just the primary colours and mixing combinations of them to make enough different colours to decorate a Queen's quilt.
