For this term’s blog the children have written about their highlights of the term. One highlight was ‘Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies’ week:
‘I loved making smoothies with strawberries. I also like healthy minds and healthy bodies week when we made a booklet about how to get germs away.’ Max P
A few of year 3 have represented the school in the interschools tennis tournament and District sports. Thank you to the parents who accompanied them!
‘I have enjoyed representing the school with tennis. I loved it because I had challenging rivals who were much better than me but I just managed to be victorious’ Jamie
‘I loved district sports because we were free and we could do whatever we liked. I felt very nervous but my friend cheered me up. We came second last in the relay race but it was good.’ Freya
We are incredibly fortunate to have so many dedicated parents who have given up their time in all weathers to enable the children to try a different kind of sport – horse riding. It has been a source of great excitement for the children and they have enjoyed the experience despite the downpours!
‘I have really enjoyed horse riding. It’s such an experience being in control of a pony and feeling the beat of a pony’s heart. You feel free in nature. Stable management is amazing as well, the pony trusts you to lead it where it needs to go.’ Flo
‘I really enjoyed horse riding because I love horses. Also I felt free in nature. I could feel the fresh air because I was so high!’ Felix
Children even mentioned activities which are a regular feature of the weekly school curriculum:
‘In the last term I really enjoyed writing the news reports about Corky getting bitten by Krindlekrax. It was also really fun writing chapter 46-47 about Ruskin going down the sewers to fight Krindlekrax.’ Arthur
In Art/DT we have taken on the challenge to make a class quilt inspired by the traditional tales from Africa we studied last term. Each child drew an African design and translated their design in fabric using their sewing skills to complete the project.
‘I have enjoyed doing sewing on Friday afternoons. I love sewing but I thought I wouldn’t finish my giraffe so I was a bit nervous but I enjoyed it. I did a giraffe, a moon and a star.’ Jessica
We wrote letters with lots of questions to year 4 and received lovely letters with their answers. Thank you, Year 4!
We made the most of the sunny weather to create and measure shadows in our science topic on Light.
