Pirate day- Fir
Fir class really enjoyed pirate day. They worked together to make a pirate ship, they learnt a new pirate dance and made pirate biscuits and hats. They all looked amazing in their costumes.
The children worked in groups to design their own game. They presented their game to their peers and had a go at playing each game.
2 Holly Hacton Lane Park visit
On Thursday morning 2 Holly visited Hacton Lane Park. We went to learn about which plants grow in the local habitat around our school. The park rangers, Mike and Dave, were very knowledgeable about all the different plants and their features and the children enjoyed learning lots of new information. 2 Beech are looking forward to going on Monday afternoon and 2 Cedar are going on Wednesday morning.
This week we had a hockey coach come in to show us how to play hockey. We really enjoyed it!
Year 4 had a fantastic time at Rainham Marshes last Friday. We all particularly enjoyed the pond dipping even though the weather was hot, hot, hot!!!
