World Book Day - Relax and Read!
For World Book Day this year, we decided to hold a relax and read day. In KS1, we looked at the author Jill Murphy and the book The Worst Witch. During the morning, we became witches and wizards to produce our own potions and spells, some of which included 'get whatever you want potion' and 'make your brother kind potion.' We had so much fun using food colouring, rice, glitter, peas and washing up liquid to make our spells. After lunch, we decided to spend some time completing activities about the Worst Witch and enjoyed sharing some of our books with each other. Just before the Year 5 children came down, we practiced our broomstick skills and went for a flying lesson. We swooped and soared all around the hall and I'm sure we would all make it into Miss Cackle's Academy.
After all that fun, it was time to buddy up with the Year 5's. We each shared what we had been doing across the day and we very much enjoyed hearing about the Beast of Bodman that the Year 5's had been reading about. We then shared our work and read stories together. It was a great end to a wonderful day.
We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and went home to relax and read some more!

Chinese New Year
Everyone in Reception thoroughly enjoyed learning about and celebrating Chinese New Year. We found out about different Chinese traditions and recreated them in our classrooms, decorating our home corner in red and gold and creating our own dragona and lion dances.

Games Programming Competition
In Year 5/6, the children have been taking part in a games programming competition. Over the last few weeks, the children have become familiar with 'Scratch' (an educational programming language which allows users to use event driven programming with multiple active objects) and developed their programming skills to produce a simple game. The children have demonstrated great creativity and an ability to debug errors in their algorithms (precise instructions). To end the topic, the children played each others' games and voted on the most playable and creative game.
