Reception – Science

This week in Reception, we had a very special delivery! Children were excited to learn that our butterfly garden kit had arrived!
The children looked through the equipment and listened carefully to instructions on how to look after some baby caterpillars. They were very gentle and eagerly learnt all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We discussed what they might eat and read some of our favourite stories that feature them, such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle & Tadpole’s Promise by Jeanne Willis. Stay tuned to see how some of our favourite little creatures develop!

Awards

Well done to our amazing Stars of the Week!  Zayn, Zakariya, Inaya, Raya, Haider and Ayaan have been working hard this week and really deserve this recognition!  We are so proud of our stars!

Year 4 – History

What did the Vikings leave behind? Children researched their legacy and how this has impacted our lives today.

Year 2 – English

Year 2 have been busy writing non chronological reports about sea creatures. They have learnt lots of interesting facts and included them in their reports. Did you know an octopus has 3 hearts?!

Year 5 – DT

Year 5 have been learning about the impact of textile waste on the environment, so they decided to “up-cycle” some of their old, existing clothes using tie-dye. They decided this was better for the environment than buying new clothes, plus they look fab! #environment #textilewaste #pollution #savetheearth

Year 3 – English

This half term Year 3 had the opportunity to virtually meet the author Jion Sheibani! The children were able to interact with her in a lively discussion about her works and creative process. She then guided them in a drawing session, encouraging them to visualise and illustrate scenes from her books. This experience not only deepened their understanding of her stories but also inspired them to explore their own creativity. Take a look at some of the amazing photos we got from the visit!

Year 2 – Wider Experiences

Year 2 have had a fantastic time visiting Yorkshire Wildlife Park! We saw lots of animals including giraffes, leopards, lions, polar bears, tigers and many more!

Year 4 – Design Technology

As part of our Viking Warrior topic, Year 4 designed and created trousers for a Viking ready to go into battle. We used different materials and decorated them; we applied our skills of cutting different types of material safely.

Here are some of our creations:

Summer Fair

The Summer Fair was a resounding success this year!  Our families and local communities were able to enjoy an array of activities including a bouncy castle, hook a duck, mehndi, tombola and our ever-popular Brackenhill Cafe!  The Brackenhill Friendship group and staff were on hand to man the stalls and we were inundated with vistors!  It was an amazinng event and we raised a whopping £2000!  This will be used to support the children in school with their learning.  A huge thank you to the brilliant Brackenhill Friendship Group, our superb staff and of course our amazing families and children, who made this all possible.

Reception – Geography

This week, the children in Reception went on a local walk. They observed various types of houses and shops in the neighborhood. The children were excited to explore their community and learn more about their surroundings. They also enjoyed interacting with local shopkeepers and residents, which added a real-world context to their learning experience. One of the residents let us smell her lavender plant!
