Year 5 who came in from the cold.

Year 5 had  a full morning of Forest Schools today. We just happened to chose one of the coldest days of the year but we didn’t hear any complaints about the weather.

Our activities linked to their history and science work. They created Viking runes from what they learnt on Tuesday and then moved on to temperature readings for their work on insulation. We also did some crime scene investigating and created some art pieces, which reflected the children’s interests.

EYFS/KS1 Nativity and Party!

The last few weeks of term has been very busy with rehearsing for our Nativity concert, performing it to our parents, followed by a fun filled Christmas disco and party. The children are now all ready for a well earned rest and are excited about the forthcoming visit from Father Christmas. The teachers are also all ready for a well earned rest!

Lunchtime kit and activities.

SJB is having a big push with the resources available to the children at lunchtime.

Sports leaders are running hockey, netball and multi-skill sessions and two trollies are loaded with more lunchtime equipment.

Year 6 spontaneously brought out the cricket equipment today. A little early for the cricket season, but fortune favours the prepared.

Year 5 gymnastics at UVHS

Year 5 have completed their gymnastics module at UVHS over the last 4 weeks.

We have made great use of the facilities up at the high school and the children have done extremely well. The standard of gymnastics is incredibly high in Year 5 and every single pupil has seen their confidence increase.

Thanks to Miss Bird and Mr Pearce for allowing us to use the hall. Thanks also to Miss Steel for walking with the class to the school.

Year 6 start their gymnastics module next year following their apparatus work at SJB.
