On Friday, Owls and Eagles had their Bell Boating practise day. We travelled to Fladbury, inbetween Evesham and Pershore, and took a trip down the River Avon. We split into six different crews and spent the morning getting used to the boats and refining our paddling technique. We passed through a lock which was great fun and then enjoyed singing a few songs as we made our way downstream, before turning round to head back for lunch.
In the afternoon, we headed upstream and enjoyed practising a few races in preparation for the upcoming regatta. Everyone had a fantastic day and we managed (mostly) to stay relatively dry!
We have been enthused already with our new topic, At the Seaside! We have been busy making clay fish, seaside mobiles and beautiful shimmery fish. Our display is now complete and created using all of the children's own work. Do pop in and have a look!
Owls have been doing really well with their work on fractions and just to re-enforce that fractions are very useful we split a chocolate bar up. The children had to work hard to spot equivalent fractions and answer questions about which fractions were bigger.
The children have produced some excellent work comparing two fractions using diagrams. We have not always found it the easiest topic in our maths but have persevered and it was worth it for the chocolate. In the end we got 1/30 of a piece each!
Robins celebrated the end of their 'Minibeast' topic with an Ugly Bug Ball dress up day. The day included cooking, sewing, face painting, collage, singing and story telling.
Kingfishers have been learning about the human skeleton this week. They have enjoyed creating skeletons using cotton ear buds as well as fruit and vegetables. They have impressed Mrs Jones with their cutting skills-we have some future chefs amongst us!
