The children thoroughly enjoyed their first residential trip to Burwell House. The weather was beautiful and we spent lots of times out in their gardens and forest areas! We took part in a number of teambuilding activities, including the Burwell (Blindfold) Challenge! The children made their own Batik Bags using wax, and developed their mapwork skills in a walk around the village.
Thank you to James and Jane at Burwell House who made us feel so welcome and at home. We had a brilliant time!
As part of our learning on Ancient Greece, we explored the Elgin Marbles debate. It involves very detailed parts of the frieze of the Parthenon in Athens being taken by British Lord Elgin and subsequently placed in the British Museum in London. The children decided whether they thought the marbles should be returned to Athens or kept in London. They got into groups to form a response.
This is our current Star Writer display. A piece of writing is chosen after a Hot Task and in their own time, the children have a read of the work and use the stars to note what is particularly good about it. Some of the stars here say 'Paragraphs', 'Fronted adverbials' and 'Powerful vocabulary'.
We had a great week at school for School Sports Week - helped greatly by the lovely weather! We enjoyed a number of sessions in the sunshine, including Frisbee Golf, Football and Active Maths!
