When the Year One's visited Miss Rushby and Miss Spalding for their transition days in Year Two
Well what can we say?! The current Year One’s had a blast as they visited Miss Rushby and Miss Spalding for their transition days into Year Two. Our theme was the Tokyo Olympics so we tested our athletics skills and completed a Math’s code breaker activity which spelt out the words Japan and Olympics. The letters were pretty hard to find as they were scattered around the room! We considered carefully, the things that makes us different and thought about why we might be proud of these things as we shared the story ‘The Girl With Eyes That Kiss In The Corners’. As we explored the capital city of Tokyo and the country of Japan we wrote our names in Japanese, practiced some Tai Chi, made and tasted sushi and painted our own cherry blossom. We can’t wait to welcome the children back in September!
To start our new topic of 'Everyday Heroes' we had an outdoor survival day on our first day back.
We had a fantastic time where we learnt different skills, Shown to us by Bear Grylls, that would help us to survive in the harshest of conditions.
We start by learning the importance of the rule of 3 to help to survive. First you start with 3 minutes without oxygen, then 3 hours without shelter, then 3 days without water and finally 3 weeks without food.
We had to tackle the outdoor obstacle course where we climbed across the slippy bridge, crawled through the deep, dark tunnel, carried our equipment through a river and fended off dangerous, wild animals.
We then learnt how to forage for food, looking at what we should avoid and what we could eat.
We learnt how to create a shelter that would keep us warm and dry. This came in very helpful as the rain began to fall.
Finally, we took some time to appreciate the beautiful world we live in and created some sketches of what we could see and went on a bug hunt.
This week we got the chance to complete our Mansfield Town FC Penalty Shootout competition. We were really excited to take part.
We cheered each other on and all showed great determination!
Two children (Emily D and William B) in Mr. Blackwell's class scored 5/5 goals and went through to a Sudden Death knockout situation. We'd like to congratulate William B on winning a 8 goal sudden death thriller!
Well done to all the children that took part and raised money!
