World Values Day
Thursday 18th October was World Values Day. As a school we study a different value every month. On 18th October, each class looked closely at a value. They each had to create a piece of work around their given value and share this in assembly.
Year 1 have been using the software Paint to practise selecting icons with a mouse. This week the children created shapes and filled them in using the colour fill tool.
We have received some wonderful home learning. These houses were made by children from 2 Beech. Well done!
We loved the wonderful Remembrance Day display outside Colchester Castle.
As part of our spelling lessons we get to take turns at being the teacher. We call it Team Teach.
World Kindness Day
Tuesday 13th November was World Kindness Day. Year 5 had an assembly in which they thought about ways they could be kind and also learnt about the personal benefits of being kind to others. Here you can see some friends being kind to each other during the Daily Mile and demonstrating Branfil's Golden Rule.
Year 6 trip - Chatham Dockyard
Year 6 had a fantastic day at Chatham Dockyard.
They went in a genuine Second World War Air Raid Shelter where they experienced the sights, smells and sounds of an Air Raid in one of the Admiralty’s ‘most luxurious’ shelters of the time.
Then they got to go on the HMS Cavalier where they learnt about life above and below deck aboard the Royal Navy’s last operational Second World War Destroyer.
They also got to explore the HM Submarine Ocelot - the last Royal Navy warship built at Chatham Dockyard.
All the children behaved impeccably and were a credit to Branfil.
