Willow class have been finding out about Pirates over the last few weeks. Our geography lessons have involved creating our own maps, complete with title, key and compass. During a spontaneous art session, we produced this amazing ‘class map’ which we are all very proud of. Well done, me hearties!

World Book Day

Look at our amazing World Book Day outfits - don't we all look fabulous? What an action-packed day we have had!

In the morning, Mrs Watson visited our classroom and read 'The Tiger who Came to Tea' . Following this, we made our very own friendly, hungry tigers from paper plates. 

In the afternoon, after our P.E session, Mrs Moore invited us into Elm and she read 'Mrs Honey's Hat' and we designed and decorated our own hats.

Phew! What a wonderfully busy World Book Day!

Art and Music Afternoon

On Wednesday (6.3.19) KS1 enjoyed art and music afternoon with Mrs Owen (Tommy's mum). The very talented Mrs Owen played three pieces of music on her violin: 'Mussette' by Bach; 'Bouree' by Handel and 'Humoreque' by Dvorak. As she played, the children were asked to close their eyes, envisage a scene or place and think how the music made them feel. After a class discussion, the children were invited to paint their perceptions and interpretations of the music.

The children really enjoyed listening to the music and expressing themselves through their painting - isn't the artwork fantastic?

Scottish Shortbread

As part of our 'Around the World' topic, we have been looking at countries within the United Kingdom. This afternoon, the children have been finding out all about Scottish cuisine and traditions. In particular, they were most intrigued about the story of the Loch Ness monster, which resulted in a great class discussion on whether Nessie was fact or fiction!

We also enjoyed a wee tasting of Scottish Shortbread!

Balanceability

Today the children had the opportunity to showcase and practice their balance skills on bikes on the playground. They received lots of useful tips and advice on balancing, bike riding and general bike safety. Look how great they did!

 

 

 

Medieval Banquet

Wow! What a fantastic way to celebrate the end of our 'Kings and Queens' topic! The children have had so much fun today. We have truly embraced the medieval spirit!

The children have taken part in lots of medieval themed activities today: medieval dancing, food tasting, played some traditional medieval games and even made some medieval crafts.

Well done everyone - your costumes looked amazing!

Football Skills

Willow have enjoyed their Football Skills session with Emma Dennis this morning. The children learnt dodging and ball control skills and were then able to apply these skills in 8 aside matches. Well done Willow - some fantastic team work!

Friday Afternoon Reading

Willow class decided to make the most of the beautiful sunny weather this afternoon! We took our reading books up onto the field and took it in turns to read to our reading partners. What a lovely way to start the weekend!

Science

As part of this term's Science topic, the wonderful Willows have been looking at plants. We had great fun on a 'plant scavenger hunt' up on the school field where we found and identified a variety of common wild plants.

We also discussed plant reproduction and talked about the different ways plant seeds are dispersed.

Happy Easter!

 Wow! Look at Willow's Easter bonnets - they all look absolutely AMAZING!

Thank you for you continuing support. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and a well deserved rest!
