Exciting Learning

13 February 2014

It has been very cold start to this half-term but the children seem immune to the weather as they are so active in their inside and outside learning and play.

Our Year 3 teachers dressed for Africa Day and Nursery children visiting Mrs Meehan and even attempting a portrait!

It has been a busy week with lots of interesting things happening throughout the school, with teachers creating opportunities for children to learn in active and creative ways. It is always a delight to see children move around the school and take their learning beyond the classrooms and this week was no exception.

Year 3 students were exploring all things African for their themed learning day which engaged them in stimulating and creative projects and workshops. They also got to dress up so they abandoned their uniforms to become tigers, zebras, monkeys, wear traditional costumes, and become explorers and even tourists! It made for quite an interesting lunch queue!

Year 1 children could be seen exploring the distant corners of the school, armed with their clipboard and heads bursting with their mathematical knowledge, as they went on a shape treasure hunt , trying to find 2D and 3D shapes in the objects and building around them.

Year 4 children were learning about Jacques Cousteau and this lead them to a Science enquiry to find out how you can have an underwater flare. Fortunately they got their answers with a controlled experiment in the science lab and did not blow up the school!

Even our little Nursery children were on the move as they set about interviewing different staff members all about their jobs and how they help people. I was lucky to have some little investigators, armed with their ipad and questions, interview me about my job. They were so amazing and enthusiastic in their exploration of my office and finding out just what everything was used for. They also made me happy by following our interview with some art time where they painted some lovely portraits of me!  The children asked me if my job was important and of course my answer was that I have the best and most important job in the world, helping these amazing children to become even more amazing!

More exciting experiences to come next week and every week.
