ANIMAL ROAD SHOW AT HILLOCKS!

Today, Whitepost Farm brought lots of animals for our year 3 and 4 children to see, touch and hold. We had visits from Mice, Guinea Pigs, Rabbits, Chicks, Ducklings, Reptiles, Creepy Crawlies and more! The children absolutely loved it!

Down on the Farm

We are really enjoying our new topic of, ‘Do Cows Drink Milk?’ We have had a visit from a goat, built farms and are looking forward to our next book, Jack and the Beanstalk.’

We will then be joined by our very own class pets; some fluffy chicks will be arriving for us to look after so prepare for lots of photos!

Thank you for all your support as always and we look forward to showing you all our learning very soon.

MIGHTY METALS LAUNCH DAY!

Year 3 and 4 thoroughly  enjoyed their launch day yesterday. They worked in teams to design and build their very own robots from recycled materials.

We are looking forward to bringing them to life!

KS1 Class Carnival!

On Friday 30th November KS1 took part in their very own Class Carnival! We created our own headdresses and musical instruments in preparation.  Everyone had chance to parade around, showing off their wonderful headdresses before we all played our instruments together, finding the beat within different pieces of traditional Brazilian music. Finally, we learnt some basic Salsa moves and had a go at dancing the Salsa to the music. We had lots of fun together celebrating our topic, Rio De Vida!

ANTI-BULLYING WEEK

4SD have been studying a poem that is called Unique. It is about loving yourself and those around you. It tells us to celebrate being different and not to hate on being different.

 Imagine how boring would it be if everybody was the same!
