Year 1 Birch Assembly and Parent’s Visit!

Year 1 Birch have loved learning about space and have become real experts. They shared their learning with the whole school in an assembly and last Friday performed for their parents and carers who were then invited back to class to share their learning. A big, “Thank you!” to everyone who came, you made the children’s day!

On Tuesday 9th May we designed and created our very own rockets. We used bottles, foil, celophane and other reusable items. We evaluated them and answered what we thought went really well and what we would do differently next time. We think they are space-tastic! What do you think?

Planting our tomato seeds!

Today the children planted their tomato seeds which have been sent by Heinz! They have come home with full instructions on how to take care of them and help them to grow. Please keep us updated when yours grow!

Owl Week!

The children have had a fantastic week during Owl Week! They have learnt all about owls and their habitats. In Year 1, the children created Owl Fact files which they shared with Year 3 and 6. In Year 6, the children were taught how to draw owls. The hall was full of owlets on World Book Day too!
