Enabling Enterprise Challenge Day


Today we accepted a challenge from the Enabling Enterprise team. We had to work together to create a creative space. We started off the day with an assembly to introduce the challenge. We then had to pick a team name and decide where our space could go. We had to decide whether a woodland or an open, grassy space would be best and why. We then worked in pairs to design a space, thinking about the different areas that might appear in a creative space. We thought of a cinema, an art gallery, a dance studio, a greenhouse, a lake, a lounge and several other ideas. The key part was that it had to link to the natural environment in some way. They could use trees inside, or have a garden. One group even thought of creating a grass roof! The children then were set the task to build a model of their space using different materials. They did a fantastic job and have had a lovely day, developing skills such as team work, listening, imagination and staying positive!

A message to parents:


As part of the summer fete (29th June) this year each class will be having their own stall. Mitchell class are running the 'How many sweets are in the jar?' stall. 


I would love to have some children (and adults) to help run the stall on the day. If anyone would like to volunteer, please come and speak to me. We will be collecting contributions to the stall (jars, sweets, posters) after half term. 


Thank you smiley

Woodland Crowns


The children had a lovely afternoon designing and making their woodland crowns. They had to use twigs and sticks to make the base, which they then decorated with leaves or flowers. The crowns look amazing and are a wonderful addition to the classroom! 


Thank you for all the donations!

6th June 2019 - Boggarts!


As part of our topic, ‘Enchanted Woodland’, we used the natural resources to create boggarts! We started the afternoon by discussing why trees are important. We went and hugged a tree, smelt and felt the bark and discussed our ideas and feelings. We did a tree rubbing to see the different textures of tree bark. Then, in a group, the children found a space on a tree and created a face in the clay, using natural resources, such as bark, flowers, leaves and moss. It was a wonderful afternoon and the children created lovely boggarts to put on the trees!
