Summer Term

We’ve had three exciting days in Meerkats this week. As half the class went to Blackwell, those that stayed at school made a lot of progress in their Do & Discover books as we got up to all sorts of exciting activities.

On day one we made rafts for Lego men before testing their seaworthiness (the Lego men mostly stayed dry). We also tore up the playground on a flotilla of bikes, scooters and trikes. In the afternoon, we had a competition to see who could make the paper aeroplane which flew the furthest.

On the second day, we made a tepees in the morning and spent the afternoon hunting for dinosaur fossils and making mud pies in Forest School.

On Friday, we braved the climbing wall and had a go at some orienteering: the children had to read a map of the school and find eight control points around the school grounds.

The class had a brilliant week and they all tried their very best with every activity.

Our current topic for this half term is Class Orchestra and our science topics are sound and electricity.

We made some amazing hats for the Easter Bonnet parade and also worked as a team with our treasure hunt!
