MiniBeasts…

We were so excited today when we found a worm on our playground. We looked at the worm closely and talked about what we could see. Then we talked about how, to care for the worm, we needed to put it in soil. After carefully placing the worm in the garden we watched it slowly ‘tunnel’ it’s way into the soil.

Visit From Harper Adams University.

Today, a large group of students form Harper Adams University came to visit our school. We have enjoyed working with Harper Adams University students for some years now. The students want to design an interactive game for us, as part of their studies, linked to the ‘field to fork’ agenda. Some of us were very brave and spoke to the students about what we have planted and cooked this year.

What did you talk to the students about?

Enjoying Learning To Read…

We are really proud of our learning, especially our reading. Today, we learned about the phoneme ‘ch’. Then we went outdoors to segment and blend to read lots of ‘ch’ words. We used natural materials to show sound buttons in each word.

How many words can you think of which have the phoneme ‘ch’ in them?

Raising Money For Charity…

We have really enjoyed learning new songs to perform on stage in our whole school play ‘Little Red Robin Hood’. This was also a very important play as the school council had asked Mr Satoor if we could do a whole school play in order to raise money for the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army has a base in Oakengates as there are lots of needy people in our town. Our school leaders are helping us to learn that it is important to help others less fortunate than ourselves. By doing our play we have helped to raise £544. On Thursday our ‘wear a Christmas jumper day’ will also provide another opportunity to raise money for the Salvation Army’.

How much money do you think we will finally raise for this amazing charity that helps so many needy people in Oakengates?
