💤😎Year 6 Sleepover & Activity Day 😎💤

It started at 5pm with the kitchen sink packed and HUGE smiles all around! (I’m not sure whether the parents were more excited or the children!) First up was den building- Boys v Girls! The boys worked on camouflaging their den whilst the girls focussed on organising their sweet table and lining up their shoes! Boys 1 v Girls 0! Next came the singing! The girls wrote their own lyrics whilst the boys improvised and even added in some grooves! Boys 2 v Girls 0!

Lots of fun and games followed. Splat, Zombie Tag, Wink Murder- you name it, we played it! Boys 5 v Girls 2!

After a quick sweet stop, we headed across to Forest Schools to meet Mrs Ashley and our camp fire (no sleepover is complete without s’mores and hot chocolate!) A lot of singing and memory telling later, we headed back over to get changed into our ambush gear (the boys were fully prepared!). Grabbing our torches, we played Boys v Girls EXTREME Hide and Seek! It was brilliant! After a lot of expert searching and finding in the dark, the boys gained an extra 2 points! Boys 7 v Girls 2!

Finally, it was time to clean teeth and get tucked up in bed! We can’t say we all had 8 hours, but our dens certainly worked a treat! 💤

After a VERY long night, we awoke to beautiful sunshine and another fantastic day of fun! After packing away and getting the classrooms back together, we headed into the hall for a yummy bacon or sausage bap cooked by Mrs Burt! Breakfast had never tasted so good!

Then, it was time for a very apt activity…. BUBBLE FOOTBALL! We had soo much fun playing loads of different games, bashing into people and getting stuck upside down! Even Mrs Booth got to have a go, whilst being chased by Luke, Will and Callum!

Finally, the afternoon was filled with crazy team games, lots of fun and laughter, ice lollies and Peppa Pig cake (all will become clear in the Leavers Assembly!😉)

We had the best time and made soo many more memories that we are never, ever going to forget!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO MRS ALLEN, MRS COLEMAN, MRS BOOTH, MRS BURT AND MRS ASHLEY for giving the Y6s a brilliant sleep over and activity day! YOU ARE ALL WONDERFUL! ❤️

Buddy time 🤍

We have been really enjoying our socially distanced buddy time over the last few weeks! We have made chalk pictures to show our buddies together which was lots of fun! The Year Six buddies also helped Reception learnt to play boccia during Sports Week too! Today’s buddy time involved learning to pass the football. The Year Six buddies made fantastic coaches!

Andy Goldsworthy inspired art

For our team day challenge, Diamond Class worked in teams to create their very own land art masterpiece inspired by Andy Goldsworthy who specialises in making art made out of natural materials.

Diamond Class collected their own materials and shared them out between the teams so they each had a set of resources to use. They had to plan what they were going to do and work together as a team. We are so proud of how well the children worked together.

Each group tackled the task in different ways and produced lots of different shapes! Some groups made circular shapes, some made rectangular ones and another group made a spiral!

Reception had to be good at working as a team, they had to make sure they communicated effectively and also used their imagination! We were so impressed with their results – well done Diamond Class!

Diamond Class love their art activities!

End of year superstars!

We had a wonderful superstar assembly today! Mrs Minshall-Thomas shared lots of photographs from the whole year at school and Reception loved to see and talk about the amazing things they have done this year! What a fun and busy year it has been!

Well done Diamonds you have all worked so hard and fully deserve your superstar certificates! Well done for being such a super class!

💎🥰

Also congratulations to Yellow team for winning the whole school team trophy! Who will win next year!? 😃

Diamond class artists

We had yet another busy day being brilliant artists! We used oil pastels to make different flower shapes on the paper and we loved seeing the effect when we added brusho on top so we could see the white outline! Diamond Class also worked super hard to make their flower paintings! We looked at the different colours and explored how we could create vibrant flowers! Thank you to those who brought in flowers that we could use as inspiration!

Look at our super oil pastel flowers too! We painted over the flowers with brusho to really highlight the shapes we made! We can’t wait to continue with this piece where we will use more materials to create a multimedia effect!

Art week is amazing! 🖼🎨
