Autumn Term 2019

Autumn Term 2019

The Tudors

We have been busy this half term continuing our learning about The Tudors. The children have been super creative and have made some brilliant Tudor clay heads and ceramic Tudor roses! We also learnt and performed a Tudor play script all about Henry VIII and his six wives.

Forest School

In Forest School, we collected conkers and have used palm drills to create conker caterpillars! We had to get busy practising tying knots too, tricky business indeed! We have also made some beautiful Christmas decorations using various natural materials.

As part of the Woodland Trust Climate Change Campaign, we helped to plant 100 trees around our school grounds. This will help to grow our Forest School area, giving us even more space for Forest School activities!

Collective Worship

Our whole school Christian value this Half Term is compassion. Year 4 led a brilliant school worship on the theme and presented their wonderful thoughts and ideas.

Workshops and trips

We took part in a Show Racism the Red Card Workshop earlier this term. We learnt lots about the history of racism and how it can be seen in different forms. It was brilliant to see the children already had a very good understanding of the issues and they all showed fantastic knowledge and respect.

We took part in a very wet ‘Mile Run’ around Ty Mawr Country Park too!

Christmas Festivities!

As part of our Christmas celebrations, we have been to see ‘Peter Pan’ at The Storyhouse in Chester. We loved the show and it has made us feel extremely festive!

We enjoyed taking part in the school Christmas Nativity performance at St. Mary’s Church too. The children sang their hearts out and performed their lines brilliantly!
