TATTERSHALL FARM PARK - Thursday 11th July 2019
The excitement of travelling on an executive double decker coach was just the start of a brilliant trip to Tattershall Farm Park.
Oak and Cherry Class were able to see a host of farm animals 'up close and personal', including a litter of day old piglets.
The children were also able to stroke a rabbit, touch a bearded dragon and feel the skin of a corn snake in our petting session. We met a comical hawk in the bird display who preferred walking to flying and watched fleece being woven into yarn.
The picnic lunch and fantastic play area were the icing on the cake and the children were so well behaved. The weather was kind and the rain stayed away. We all got back to school tired but happy.
Thank you for sending the children so well prepared.
Today, Wednesday 10th July, we dug up the potatoes that we have been growing. Mrs Ironmonger washed them and boiled them until they were soft.
Some children were unsure about eating a boiled potato and lots of children had never had a potato straight out of the ground before. However, since they were our own class grown potatoes, everyone tried some and most of Oak Class LOVED them!
Perhaps you could grow some potatoes at home?
Sports Day - Thursday 27th June
The weather was kind and the children were wonderful! What a delight to see so many smiling faces - win or lose. We were so proud of the attitude and sporting behaviour of all our pupils. Every child did their best and it was great to see runners up congratulating those who had won a position. Thank you to all those parents who were able to join us. we hope you enjoyed seeing your children compete.
In Numeracy we have been exploring 'Capacity'. We looked at different shaped containers to compare how much liquid they can hold. It was interesting to see how containers of different shapes still held the same volume. We then looked at how to read scales if we are given markers, but no numbers. We had to work out the divisions to make the markers useful, by solving the counting pattern.
At home look for containers that have the capacity written on them, for example a bottle of juice, a shampoo bottle, etc.
Welcome Back to Term 6
On Friday 7th June Bishop David Court from Lincoln joined us for a musical assembly. In Oak class we sang and accompanied Scott Joplins 'Entertainer' with our own home made musical instruments. We hope you enjoyed making them over half term!
