Welcome back to the Spring Term 2020!
Welcome back to the Spring Term in Upper Key Stage 2. We are already underway with our new topic 'Adventure & Explore' learning all about South America and the Amazon Rainforest. We are thoroughly enjoying reading our new class novel, 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell and can't wait to find out who 'the Explorer' is and why they are in the Amazon Rainforest.
We have lots of exciting learning activities and events planned from den building, to jungle art and science investigations.
Den Building! Jan 2020
We are loving our new class novel, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. In the story, four children are left stranded in the rainforest after their plane crashes. In order to survive, they build a den for shelter. We decided to try out our own bushcraft skills by having a go at building our very own small-scale dens using natural resources from the school grounds.
Bear Grylls has nothing on us! Check out the photos for our mini-den creations!
A visit from a professional athlete Amy Hillyard - Jan 2020
We were very lucky to have a visit from a professional athlete - 400m sprinter Amy Hillyard. She put us through our paces with some training drills and inspired us to believe in ourselves.
We also worked hard raising sponsorship to raise an impressive £1080 to help fund Amy's training and contribute to school sports equipment.
We wish Amy all the luck in the world and look forward to seeing her compete in future Olympic and Commonwealth events. She will have our support - Go for it Amy!
