Spring Term 2
We have had lots of fun with our Inventors topic this term. We took a bike apart to find out how it worked, read Audrey and her Amazing Invention and wrote about ourselves as inventors. We also learnt about some really useful inventions like the light bulb and a life saving buoyancy device.
All aboard at The National Railway Museum.
Clay work with our friends from Nepal.
Forest School Fun.
Spring Term 2019
Our topic for the first half of this term is Global Neighbours.
We read Meerkat Mail and learnt all about Meerkat life and habitats. We enjoyed learning about the Muslim faith and visiting a local mosque in York.
Our new topic for this half term is Festivals and Celebrations.
We have learnt about Diwali, the traditions of Bonfire Night and about the first Christmas.
We've had fun over the last couple of weeks in Forest Schools. We made a giant nest, spelt out Green Hammerton in leaves, made Pudsey Bear out of autumn leaves and made bird feeders.
We enjoyed a cluster sports event at Great Ouseburn Village Hall.
Just before half term, we went on a special visit to our Church. We learned about the different features of a church, saw how a baby is christened and welcomed into the church family. We even held a pretend wedding!
The whole school came together to celebrate the beginning of advent. In our house teams we made advent candles and advent wreaths. We also learnt about Christingle and made Christingle oranges in preparation for our carol service.
All the children from Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 worked so hard to learn all their lines and practice the songs from our nativity play, Hey Ewe! It was amazing!
