Robins had an exciting adventure last week when they caught the bus into Winchcombe to buy stamps so they could post Thank You cards they had written for their Big Friends. They also visited the library and the park for a picnic and a play.
The children told the rest of the school and their parents about their trip and sung a medley of travelling songs accompanied by Miss Badham on the guitar in their class assembly.
At Forest School the children worked in teams to hunt for letters hidden amongst the trees and logs and had to get them in the right order to spell a word...
Eagles had a fantastic time on Thursday working to design and create their own moving fairground rides. We used our computer programming skills to include working lights, motors and even some musical accompaniment! We’d like to say a big thank-you to STEM for organising the day and to FOGS for funding it.
Robins and their Big Friends got together for a big baking session...mountains of chocolate cookies were created. Mary Berry would have been very proud...no soggy bottoms in sight!!
Robins have been learning about ways of travelling as part of our new topic 'Off We Go'. As well as reading stories about travelling many of the children have made models of vehicles and we all had a go at making paper aeroplanes which we launched in the playground.
We investigated what the term 'Fair Trade' might mean this week by playing a game. The children split into 'countries' and were allocated resources - some more than others. Each country tried to use their resources to make flowers to sell to Mrs Holt, a well known international flower trader. It was very interesting to hear words such as 'profit' and 'marketing strategy' being used completely off the cuff by Year 5 and 6 children! The children als learned about fluctauting market prices and supply and demand.
