Head’s Blog – 28th January
I am super proud of two of our children who have represented our school at the District Cross-Country yesterday at Newent. Both of them qualified to go to the County finals but because the competition is really only for Y5/6, our Y3 girl is not able to go and compete. The organiser was so impressed with her, he sent me an email to praise her achievement. I am sure she will be back next year when they will let her go to County! Well done to both of them.
Oak class have been getting in touch with nature this week, even more than normal. Mrs Griffiths found some stag antlers near her house, so the children have been holding these. I was absolutely amazed by them as I have never seen any up close before, let alone had the chance to hold them. They have also been looking at birds’ nests and have been creating their own. Roman recounted how he has a bird’s nest in his garden and gave us a great deal of information about how the mummy bird goes away and brings back worms to feed them. I love the fact that our children have the confidence to communicate to so many people, they are certainly having lots of opportunities to live out our curriculum drivers.
Oak class have been data handling in Science by measuring their height using Duplo and then they drew graphs. They had lots of fun and were keen to tell me who was the tallest and how there were 3 of them all the same height. They obviously love their learning as they get so excited about it.
