World Book Day Competition Winners

We are excited to announce winners for our Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 World Book Day Competitions.

In Key Stage 2 we would like to congratulate Eloise from Mighty Oaks and Evan from Young Oaks for their amazing efforts. Eloise dressed as Professor Trelawney from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I wonder if she saw this outcome in her crystal ball…? Evan decorated his potato as Harry Potter! Perhaps Evan should call his character Harry… Potater!

In Key Stage 1 we would like to congratulate Harrison from Little Acorns and Zack from Saplings. Harrison dressed up as a bunny baker from ‘Great Bunny Bakes’ (Although, as anyone who reads the book will know, appearances of baking bunnies can be deceiving!). Zack decorated his potato as Kylo Ren from one of the Star Wars companion books. Watch out for that lightsaber, Zack!

Thank you to everyone who took part and sent in photos of their outfits and potato characters! We loved seeing them all and everyone (and every potato!) looked great!

 

SUPERHEROES!

Little Acorns have been busy learning all about real Superheroes this term. First, we discussed what a superhero is and the characteristics of Superheroes. We then read “Real Superheroes – A Celebration of Key Workers” by Julia Seal. After, we spent a week learning all about those who work within the NHS and had a visit from a nurse. The following week, we focused our learning on Police and Firefighters and found out what number to call in an emergency. The children even had a go at putting a fire out in the outdoor area using buckets of water and a hose! To end our learning of Superheroes the children designed and made their own Superhero gingerbread people with Mrs Brown. They looked and smelt amazing! The children understand that we are all so lucky to have real superheroes around us to help when we are in need. 

Goodbye Beegu!

This week, Big Acorns made a fantastic spaceship to help Beegu get home. We are very sad to have to say goodbye as we have really enjoyed learning about Beegu this term. We wrote some letters to her and left them in her spaceship. We hope she has a safe journey home and maybe we will get a reply from her soon. Goodbye Beegu!
