Don't forget board games and chocolate fountain treats!
Outside Challenge 1
To get out of the sticky classroom again, we went outside to guess a tree! Ask your child what the rules were for our funny game.
Outside Challenge 2
We were challenged to build a bird's nests with our friends only using the fore finger and thumb on one hand. It was great fun!
Saying Goodbye as a School
We had a fun quiz for the teachers who will be leaving us at the end of this term. It made us all laugh!
When it is hot and sticky inside a crowded classroom, it is a perfect time to step outside to do some artwork. The children focused amazingly well and produced some lovely pieces of observational art.
It has been lovely to welcome the year two children into Holly Class helping them to find out more about what life in Key Stage Two is all about! I am glad to say that we have had a great time and have even created some of our displays for next term. I have a feeling that next year is going to be a great year!
Den Making Day
A huge thank you and well done to all the dads, grandads, uncles and big brothers who came to help us build our dens today- there were so many of you today! Another brilliant day for the Weston Hills community.
Please read on!
Please see the Doodles Facebook page to nominate our school for a visit from Doodles in school!
After a slight hiccup with the bus, we had a fantastic day at Banham Zoo. The children were full of their questions about conservation to ask the zoo staff and loved getting close to these amazing animals that we have been finding out about in class. We didn't have time to get round everything as there is so much to see so we highly recommend a return visit!
Sport Day Fun!
Wow! What a great afternoon! The weather was extremely warm but with hats and sun cream along with our water bottles in the shade, we were all fine (and well behaved!). Thank you to all the parents who came to cheer us on (and buy ice lollies afterwards).
Maths games on weight
Our trip is almost here- Wednesday! Please make sure your child has:
. a lunch in a small rucksack that they are able to carry (please do not send food that may melt in the warm weather)
. school uniform on with sensible walking shoes
. sun cream on and a hat
. plenty to drink
. pennies for an ice cream/ice lolly- delicious on a hot day!
Pond Dipping Part 2
We have returned to the pond and what a difference! There are so many little froglets- some still have tails, others look like miniature frogs. There just was not enough time... What fun!
Sports Day Tomorrow!
Please do not forget to make sure your child has their coloured t-shirt, shorts and trainers for tomorrow's Sports Day. We have had a number of children without trainers recently so please make sure they are in school tomorrow or your child will not be able to join in the fun as we have very few spare pairs.
**Please make sure that your child has sun cream and a hat- it is going to be hot!
Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic day at the Mini-Olympics taking part in so many different sports and meeting our favourite Inspire+ Olympic athletes! We ended the day on a huge high because we won the banner competition. The cheer from all our children was so loud when they announced the winning country was Argentina that I never actually heard the words Weston Hills Primary!
Thank you to everyone who brought in some soil for us to use in our Science- we really do appreciate parental support.
This afternoon, we got very messy whilst deciding if each soil was sandy, clay or a loam. Great fun!
Mrs Gernert joined us this afternoon to prepare us for our celebration afternoon at the South Holland Centre on Wednesday. She went through the song with us that everyone will sing (she was impressed that Mrs Nicholls had already started teaching it to us!) and prepared a short piece of drama with us to perform to the other schools sharing our emotions about the performances we have seen.
We had the great fortune of welcoming eight young Labrador puppies into the classroom this morning. They were all so well behaved and everyone was able to have a cuddle (including the grown ups!).
We were also all able to hold a chick or two! A HUGE thank you to Mrs Back for bringing in all these wonderful creatures to really start our week on a high.
We are really lucky to have so many trips out this term but we are still missing a number of permission slips. Please can you make sure that you have returned slips for: START Project SHC visit for 13th June; Mini Olympics at Grantham for 20th June and Banham Zoo for 27th June. Thank you.
Mr Mulhern took a back seat this afternoon to allow another "Mr M" to teach the class about his home country! The children asked lots of questions and spent the afternoon researching online what George did not know. They also painted eggs, baked cornbread and tried different meats and olives. A very informative afternoon!
We have such a busy 7 weeks in front of us- hopefully the weather will be kind to us along the way!This is Mr Mulhern's last term with us so I am sure he will make it absolutely fantastic.
First thing on Monday, we have some cute visitors of the canine variety belonging to Bertie and Harry. Next Monday, we have Mrs Gernert in teaching us a song ready fr the completion of our START Project at SHC on Wednesday 13th June. Don't forget that we also have Father's Day wrap on Tuesday 12th.
Wednesday 20th June is our Mini-Olympics Day at Grantham, leaving at 8am. It is a fun packed day which I know everyone will enjoy.
Tuesday 26th June is going to be a beautifully sunny day because it is our Sports Day! Fingers crossed.
Wednesday 27th is our trip to Banham Zoo. It is always a great day out so please get permission forms in.
As we move into July, our transition mornings and afternoon will take place. It will be so sad to see most of the class move next door but I am pleased to be keeping some super children for another year.
Before we know it, it will be the last day of term so keep checking back to see what else we get up to before the 20th July.
