Miss Anstey's Mount Toubkal Fundraiser
The fundraiser started with a special visitor to our assembly. Sunshine Bear from Beaumont House Hospice came to visit to say thank you to all the children for supporting Miss Anstey. Everyone wore winter hats to show their support and donate don't towards the charity.
Then we took to the field in the afternoon to help Miss Anstey train. 14 laps of the field later, we had completed a mile of walking. All the children were asking very thoughtful questions abo the charity and the challenge Miss Anstey is undertaking.
The fundraiser finished with a cake sale and lots of rock themed game so in the hall. It was fantastic to welcome the support of our families. The children played guess the number of rocks in a jar, pin Miss Anstey on a mountain, Beat Miss Anstey at steps and there was a luxury hamper being raffled off.
Thanks to the support of our amazing Wyberton family, we raised £375.55 for Beaumont House Hospice and Miss Anstey was left feeling very motivated for her challenge.
Place2Be Children's Mental Health Awareness Week
Today we shone bright in our yellow clothes as part of raising awareness about children's mental health. The children discussed bravery and what they can do to find their brave.
We reflected on the assembly and shared the story Be Brave Little Penguin. The children discussed the strategies they could use to find their brave including staying positive, asking for help and thinking of a past time when you were brave.
Today the children practised using different body points to create a range of balances. They created a sequence from a 1 point balance to a 5 point balance showing create creativity in the way they moved their body.
Today the Kingfishers use death their DT skills to carefully and safely cut vegetables with a knife to prepare our soup. They focused on how to hold the knife carefully and support the vegetables to prevent them slipping away. They also tasted the final soup and discussed how they thought it tasted!
The Kingfishers enjoyed raising money for Children in Need today. They took part in Joe Wicks Big Morning Move as part of a sponsored event helping the school reach a fantastic amount of money. They all looked fantastic wearing their spotty sporty clothes.
The Kingfishers loved challenging Pudsey to an exercise challenge when he visited our class.
The Kingfishers learnt how to cross a road safely with PCSO Neil today as well as learning about the importance of wearing a helmet. The children compared an egg to our precise heads and discussed what we could do to stay safe on our bikes.
The Kingfishers thoroughly enjoyed watching a time lapse video of a runner bean growing and then using this as their stimulus for their dances. The children used a variety of poses and developed their choreography with different levels.
Today the Kingfishers explored a box to discover our latest focus in our religious education. The children showed great curiosity as they examined the artefacts and they listened well to their peers as they explained the purpose of some of the objects.
The Kingfishers received their first item of post today. It was our first book recommendation from our author, Fiona Barker and they were all very excited to read 'Dracula Spectacular'.
Kingfishers visit Wyberton church
The children visited Wyberton church to learn all about Harvest. They studied the process of turning wheat to bread, planted a bean to watch grow and enjoyed a lovely tale in the story telling boat.
After publishing their own books inspired by Jim Helmore, the children attends their own book signing where they read their favourite parts to the class. The effort and dedication to this process was fantastic!
Today was a lovely day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the vegetable printing as we created out own portraits using vegetables. Their work was inspired by Arcimboldo and they used the vegetables well to represent their features. It was also lovely to share all the homework projects and see the different inspirations behind the different plants.
