Both parents and children asked for our homework celebrations to be more active.

In 5EH, once we had celebrated our excellent attendance as a class and shared some of the amazing homework we had produced, we got creative! One of our homework tasks was to build a model fairground so as a class we junk modelled a circus tent, a ticket booth and created circus stick puppets. We are planning to use these within the other areas of our curriculum in the second half of Spring term. Thank you so much to all the adults who attended and supported the children in this homework celebration, I am looking forward to the next one!

5EH earnt their golden time this term by getting marbles in our jar. We had a vote for what we wanted to do. The children gave us a list of activites and ballot slips were created. The children completed a ballot slip and the votes were counted... Building a cardboard castle and decorating biscuits drew! On Friday 1st December, the children first decorated biscuits using icing, sprinkles, strawberry laces and rainbow drops. While the icing was setting, we got to work on our castles. Children worked collaboratively using only a cardboard box and brown tape to build a team castle. These were great and it was wonderful to see the children working together to communicate and be creative!

Medical Dress Up day was a huge success. The children came to school in medical themed clothing and we had a range of doctors, nurses, dentists and patients! In the morning, the children took part in sponsored Freddie Fit activities, testing their hearts with physical activity. During the afternoon, the children learnt about the circulatory system, how the heart works and labelled the heart. We discussed why it is important to keep our heart healthy and what a defibrillator does. The children agreed it was very important that we raised money to help us get one in school!

Friday 17th November was Children in Need! Children wore spots and completed Pudsey activities. They coloured in Pudsey, learnt about ways we as a school have been fundraising for Children in Need and completed spotty artwork. Children used a pair of compasses to draw circles and colour them in using Pudsey colours. Their artwork was very effective!
