It was a fun day in school today! The children in the Foundation Stage spent time throughout the day taking turns to make and toss pancakes! They made the mixed in teams and then each took a turn to flip them with a range of results. The activity meant that most of the downstairs of school had wafts of pancake throughout the day which resulted in plenty of rumbling stomachs!
Meanwhile, Mrs Critoph and Mrs Smoothy took another group of children out of school in order to take part in another ‘AOK Club’ mission, today from Owls. The children walked to Edward Bears pre-school group where they helped look after the toddlers and modelled how to play with them. The children all acted as lovely role models to the younger children and the adults were delighted to present them with their special badges back in school. Well done children, we are proud of you!
Out in the ‘Forest Friends’ area the children in Year One used natural objects such as branches and cones to make a range of percussion instruments. They then banged and scraped some wonderful beats and rhythms in unison to make beautiful music! Meanwhile, inside, Mr B had the pleasure of listening to more children read, today from Foxes. The children all read beautifully and made Mr B’s day with their enthusiasm!
In the afternoon the downstairs hall was full of proud parents and other family members of the children of Sycamore and Badgers as they gathered to watch the children perform their Dance Festival routine. This year spectators were unable to be accommodated at Garons due to their seating issue so the parents watched the performance in the hall instead. The children performed their routine to ‘Under the Sea’ beautifully! Well done children, we are proud of you!
In the afternoon Mr Smith took a team of children from Years Five and Six to the Southend Indoor athletics competition where the children took part in a series of activities based around throwing, jumping and running. The team represented the school beautifully coming second place overall. Yesterday the children from Years Three and Four also took part, coming third place. Well done to all of the children who took part, we are proud of you.
