Wow! Squirrels have really enjoyed their RE day today.
We are learning all about Easter week and the importance of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The children thought about what they would like to be forgiven for and stuck it onto our classroom cross. We then learnt all about The Last Supper and had some brilliant discussions about how the disciples and Jesus would feel. The children worked in groups to act out The Last Supper and we came together to celebrate The Passover.
In the afternoon we completed our Easter art linked to Good Friday. We used oil pastels to create some wonderful pieces of art.
I think the children have had a brilliant day!

We have been super busy since being back in school together! Squirrels have been learning all about Amelia Earhart and her achievments.
We started by creating some wonderful artwork linked to our topic, which is looking great on our classroom display!
We then followed Amelia Earhart's journey across the globe and identified the 7 continents of the world.

Today Otters have looked at Palm Sunday as part of the Easter story. We made our own palm crosses and role played Jesus riding his donkey and the crowds of people welcoming him as the King shouting Hosanna.
We have also marked the ‘National Day of Reflection’ and created our own rainbows on prayers as a symbol of hope for the future.

This week Otters have amazed me with their perseverance and determination in their work. They have all worked so hard that they all moved their names up past the star up onto the ceiling!
Our numeracy focus has been learning number bonds to 10 we have a catchy song that you may have heard them singing.
In our written work we have been looking at labels and instructions We have labelled dinosaurs and written how to grow a dinosaur.
Well done Otters!

" What makes us super?" This is the question hedgehogs have based their science learning on this week. We have labelled parts of the body and had great fun investigating our five senses.

Hedgehogs have loved being back at school with all our friends. We have been busy learning in class and having great fun playing with our friends outside.

We have had the best week all back together again as Otters. It has been a pleasure to watch everyone’s lights shining so brightly in all areas of their learning. We have been investigating our egg discovery and using some excellent describing skills to produce some super sentences. We have also made our own Diplodocus dinosaurs. In maths, we have been using Numicon to make number bonds to 10.
Date: 8th Mar 2021 @ 2:38pm
What a fabulous day we have all had reacquainting ourselves with our friends and exploring our new activities. We have investigated our egg that was discovered and described what it looks like and what we think might hatch out of it. We have talked about what our favourite dinosaurs are and what a fossil is. We have also been painting daffodils and talking about what plants need to survive.
It has been so wonderful watching all of Otters lights shining brightly and excited about our new topic theme of dinosaurs.

Respecting Others in Our Community - Remembrance Day - November 2020
Our Year Six pupils led our Remembrance Service. Over thirty of our families joined us for the service. We appreciate you taking the time to join us as it made the service more meaningful for the children – thank you. I’m sure you’ll agree they did an amazing job. As part of the service, we heard about Three brave young men from Warmingham gave their lives for their country during World War 1:
Sergeant Richard Ashley
Private William Boulton
Private Joseph Henry Thomas
They are commemorated on the brass plaque on the west wall of St Leonard’s Church. The clock in the clock tower was purchased after the war in their honour. We also learnt about some of our relatives:
Officer Carl Hoyle who served 27 years in the RAF. He completed several tours including some in Afghanistan, Iraq and Bosnia. He even had a mention on the Queen’s Honours List and received a medal from her.
Private Charles Harold William Rawlings served in the 7th Battalion Worcestershire regiment. He was killed in battle.
Private Dennis Rawlings who was killed in battle.
Corporal Stewart Butters served with the Corps of Royal Engineers for 13 years. He received medals for serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Corporal Arthur Walker who was in command of a tank in World War Two. He was involved in the D Day invasion.

Today we opened the first door on our Advent Kindness Calendar. Our task was to take part in a hearts for homes challenge and so we have been busy decorating these hearts to send to our local care home for the residents to hang on their trees to help cheer them up. We had great fun and the finished decorations look amazing.
