Spirituality Day

Posted in General News | No Comments »

On Thursday, we had a whole school Spirituality Day. Beech Class started off around the fire with Mr Cross. We thought about all the people who were special in our lives.

We then came inside and as a class looked at photos from our year in Beech class and looked at all the things we have done and achieved as a class. Sarah then came in and shared a story of Micky the Meerkat. We looked how emotions and how Micky felt in different parts of the story.

We also went on a mini Micky hunt in class.

After that, we wrote about a special memory on a footprint and thought and wrote about how this memory made us feel.

After lunch we made Prayer Kites and wrote prayers for the future which we shared in assembly.

Happy Holidays Topic

Posted in General News | No Comments »

We have been doing fantastic work in our Happy Holidays topic.

For homework, we looked at all the holidays or trips we have been on in our lifetimes. This helped us in class to create a timeline of all our holidays.

We used Espresso to create holiday posters on the computers.

We bought in pictures of our holidays and shared our experiences with the class.

We looked at the local artist Chas Jacobs. We looked at his pictures and the features he includes in many of his pieces. We sketched our picture outlines and then used oil pastels to fill them in.

We are really proud of our work …

We have also looked at how holiday have changed over time and the different physical and human geographical features of different seaside towns in the UK.

Cress Experiment

Posted in General News | No Comments »

In class we looked at the different things that plants need to grow. We learned they need:

  • Light
  • Water
  • Nutrients
  • Warmth

We are carrying out an experiment by growing cress seeds.

We want to see what plants need to grow and if light and water are really that important in helping plants to grow.

So we have a cress pot with only light – no water,  a cress pot with water and no light,  a cress pot with no light or water and then  a cress pot with light and water.

We have made predictions about what will happen to the different pots of cress and to see which grows best…

We have all grown our own pot of cress with our pictures on to create Cress heads.
