Go Run for Fun

We had an amazing time taking part in a fun run at Eaton park. There were nearly 2,000 children running from lots of schools across the city. It was a lovely afternoon.

Do minibeasts have a favourite colour?

This afternoon we have been enjoying the sunshine whilst carrying out a science investigation.

We were observing to find out if insects have a favourite colour.

Working in groups of four, observing a colour each, we watched closely and tallied everytime an insect landed on or near to the colours.

We sat very patiently whilst the insects got comfortable with their new surroundings. Although they did not appear in masses, we managed to get some results.

Their favourite colour seemed to be the colour green! Meghan thinks this is because it is a 'nature' colour and Dexter thinks it's because 'they see a lot of green outside anyway'.

Forest School Group 3

We had some very excited children this morning as the next group of forest school started.

It is so lovely to see the children enjoying themselves outside, taking supported risks, developing confidence and trying new things.

Today they made fruit kebabs for the birds, went bug hunting, read insect ID books, climbed trees, went on the swing and made a den.

They were all very collaborative!

Cricket Festival

Some of our lovely year 2 children went to Hethersett and Tee Valley Cricket Club in Flordon to take part in a cricket festival.

They had a fantastic time completing lots of activities including batting, catching and bowling.

 They all received a certificate to say well done for being respectful and for showing good sportsmanship.

Maths of the Day

As a school we have bought into a scheme called 'Maths of the Day' which is a take on 'Match of the Day' - the idea is to learn and practise maths skills in a practical way.

Today, we played a relay game where the class were split into 3 teams with one quizmaster each. The quizmaster asked questions about time such as "How many seconds are in 3 minutes" or "There are 24 hours in a day, true or false?"

The quizmaster asked a question to the first person in their team. If they knew the answer they ran the relay, if they didn't they asked their teammates to help them before running the course.

Lots of fun and learning was had!
