World Book Day
Today we celebrated World Book Day and some of the children enjoyed dressing up in some great costumes, we have also completed a range of linked activities. Even though this World Book Day was slightly different we all still had great fun and enjoyed seeing each other and chatting about our favourite books.
This weeks' Superstars are...
This year our Christingle was very different to normal, the children had fun in the classroom making their Christingles and then we walked to the church and celebrated as a whole school.
I hope you all have a relaxing holiday and enjoy time with your family and loved ones.
Special Visitors at Gedney Churchend
Today we had some special visitors in school Santa came with one of his Elves, the children each received a gift and a biscuit and had a great time.
A Bundle Of Joy
Today the children performed our 2020 Christmas Production-
A Bundle Of Joy...Don't they look great.
This is just a taster photo...keep watching as you will be able to watch the production very soon...
Christmas Jumper Day
Today the children in Woodpecker Class supported Save the Children charity by donating and in return they could wear a Christmas jumper.. they look very Christmassy. So far today we have raised £56.95 for Save The Children.
Wow, what a start to a Friday..
We all built a snowman, it was great fun.
Paw Patrol comes to Gedney
The Year 1 children have 2 special visitors today, this was to celebrate their time in EYFS which would normally be completed in July, but due to current conditions we had to postpone. The children have received memories of their time and had some fun dancing alongside Paw Patrol.
The children had a great session with Ian from Lego STEM, they all made and created a moving Lego piece and were all very pleased with their final pieces. The children worked with a friend and had to become engineers, repairing and improving their initial designs.
Children in Need
We all looked great dressed up on Pudsey day, in something yellow.
The children had a great day at Tallington Farm, they had lots of hands-on learning experiences and it was great to observe them completing all the challenges set. All the children loved the donkeys...
Farm in a Box
Today we had great fun completing some interesting farm activities:
- Poo detectives
- Sense of touch
- The Good Life
- Bread tasting
- Grow Seed Grow
This is linked to our story The Little Red Hen and in preparation for our farm visit next week, giving the children another way of experiencing farm activities without leaving the school grounds.
We all had great fun and enjoyed the whole day; I think the activity enjoyed by most was when we became poo detectives!
Topic end - Are we there yet?
To complete our topic learning the children enjoyed a day of fun, we had races and used vehicles to see who was the fastest and explored different surfaces.
The vehicles became very grassy and so we had to wash them too, there was also a staff car up for being washed too!
We certainly got them all clean by the end of the day.
First days back 4 September
Dear parents/ carers,
Take a look at the photos to see how well the children have settled back into being the fantastic year 1 children. We have thought about how we feel and painted our own version of a colour monster, explored outside and inside and have learnt how to keep ourselves and our resources clean and safe.
