 What a busy week we have had! The week kicked off with Odd Socks Day to celebrate our differences. The children reviewed our credit system and took the classes ideas forward to school coucil. We had Bring a Talent on Wednesday and we saw some amazing skiils this year from a Pizza Chef to some incredibly flexible gymnasts. This week was also Maths week so we have had some fun with our maths lessons such as a place value escape room, crafty maths, maths hats and Children in Need themed maths. The week ended with Children in Need and Take Over day. The children all looked great in yellow or spots and as a school we had a dancathon. Our class completed a Joe Wicks work out, yoga and dance alongs to Kids Bop. Take Over Day was a great success and the children loved taking on thier various roles. Hope you all have a restful weekend and enjoy the Children in Need cupcakes if you ordered some.

The children really enjoyed exploring one-footed balances in PE. We listened to part of the Carnival of Animals this week- The Aquarium- and the children responded through movement. The children were so passionate about our History learning this week when we started exploring how the Arctic has changed over time. They were so passionate about how we must change to save our planet and the animals.
