Elf workshop and other Christmas activities.

For Children in Need we came to school dressed in spotty clothes and made some Pudsey Bears.

As part of Anti-Bullying Week, we came to school wearing odd socks.

Hawthorns class scarecrow - Room on the Broom.

In class we have been learning about Remembrance Day and why the poppy is so important. As groups we worked together to make a poppy wreath.

Well done Hawthorns for all joining in and completing our Mini Marathon. (20 laps of the playground). It was a great class effort and I certainly enjoyed completing it with you in between the showers!

We are learning about our local community in geography. We read a story about a little boy who lived in a town and went to visit Grandad who lived on a farm. The children were then given the challenge to create a feature of a town or farm.

Summer Term 2021

Sports Day

12.7.21. We had a visit from Ranger Russ today bringing in some special guests.

9.07.21 Science week. The children looked for evidence to see which of the dogs had stolen the bone from Mrs Gibb's cupboard.

8.7.21 - Hawthorns have enjoyed a glorious day at Crooklets Beach, building sandcastles linked to our Victorian seaside topic, rock pooling looking for and identifying sealife and a safety talk from the coast guards. We ended the day with a yummy ice-cream!

28.5.21 As part of a joint project with the National Trust, to raise awareness of the importance of sand dunes, all the children got the opportunity to contribute towards painting our school cow. The theme for our cow was Wilderness and after looking through their initial designs we incorporated forest, Dartmoor and the beach. We helped to paint the base colours for either the forest, Dartmoor or the beach.

We have enjoyed planning and making fruit kebabs thinking about giving and writing clear instructions to help our teachers know what to do. We were very bossy!

Hawthorns enjoyed a fun time learning some running skills and a dance with OCRA.

We have enjoyed playing lots of games to help us learn our digraphs and trigraphs in phonics and our phase 2-5 tricky words.

We've been having lots of fun playing Miss Grey's game, linked to our traditional tales theme.

Our new learning sequence in English is all about instructions. We have been very bossy in class telling the adults how to make a jam sandwich!

We have been learning about traditional tales. Here are some pictures of what we think the giant might look like.

For St George's Day we learnt the story of George and the Dragon then imagined what a dragon would be like.

We have started learning how to use a tennis racket, in PE.

Autumn Term 2020

We had a lovely Christmas dinner with a surprise visitor.

We have had loads of fun in our Elf workshop making Christmas paper chains, stained glass windows and scratch art penguins. We also watched an Elf story.
