Thursday 3rd May – 24th May – Forest Schools

Friday 18th May – Whole school enrichment day

Take a look at what we have been up to this week:

It’s been a very busy week (although only 4 days!). On Thursday we had our second session in the woods, which the weather thankfully held off for! I am always amazed by the children’s creativity and what they manage to make out of nature. This week Holly had set up a slack line between two trees, we challenged the children to try and attempt this blind folded with the help of friends. Here are some pictures of our session:

This week in maths we have been reviewing area and perimeter and our understanding of both. This has been a great time to go back over any common misconceptions and correct these. In english, we have further analysed the story of Romeo and Juliet – looking specially at characters and their relationships. On Friday they class wrote their own character descriptions for either Romeo or Juliet. I was very impressed by some of the language used and the structure of their descriptions.

On Friday we had our last Sybil Andrew’s enrichment visit, which was focusing on PE. The class was split into groups and throughout the morning had to work their was around specific activities (such as balance beam, sprint and javelin). We were competing again two other schools in each competition, and I am very proud to say that overall All Saints won! Here are some photos from the day:

 Our individual winners!

I look forward to another fun filled week next week with Forest Schools on Thursday afternoon and our whole school enrichment day on Friday.
