3D Dinosaurs

In order to make our maths work more exciting (and link to our dinosaur book week) we made our own dinosaur models from a mixture of 3D shapes. The children had to design their dinosaur then research, measure and draw the nets independently and I was so impressed with their resilience - despite many unsuccessful attempts, the children only grew more determined and I was very proud of what they achieved. Well done for showing such great perseverance skills, Tutu! 

Fun in the Snow

We somehow managed to brave the freezing cold weather for a quick run around and play in the snow! 

Puppy Cuddles

Since we're on the subject of animals, just before half term, Mrs Shipway very kindly brought in her Labrador puppies - they were adorable! We had lots of fun watching them potter about the classroom and enjoyed the cuddles very much. Thank you so much for bringing them in and apologies for the delay in posting photos! 

Ponies in the Playground?!

As if we hadn’t had enough exciting activities this week, today we were joined by two gorgeous Shetland ponies, Daisy and Emily. Immy and Penny's family told us lots of info about them (and some funny stories!) and the children loved it - so much so that other classes couldn’t resist popping out for a visit! Thank you Dad for bringing them in. 

'The best day ever!'

After an amazing talk and book signing with Jay Jay Burridge, the children were organised into groups and spent the rest of their day moving around the school to take part in activities led by staff.  The children were absorbed in making dinosaur inspired iMovie trailers, painting, looking at fossils, creating play dough/pasta dinosaurs and uncovering bones.  It was so lovely to hear them talk about their creations,  and explain what they had made, why they had come up with the idea and the name they were going to give it.  The children worked so well together and it was wonderful to hear one Year 6 say, 'This is the best day ever!'
