This week in Green Class we have been reading “006 and a Bit” by Kes Gray, all about a girl called Daisy who decides she wants to become a spy! To explore the story, we dressed up as spies, wrote secret messages to each other and discovered that we could decipher codes in  phonics.

Dark glasses and a newspaper – things a spy need

In Science this week we thought about how we could keep our teeth healthy. We made posters to remind ourselves to brush our teeth twice a day, we sorted foods into groups of food that is good for our teeth and food that is bad for our teeth, and then we all cleaned some giant teeth! To finish our learning we practised cleaning our own teeth using a two-minute timer – we had to brush them for a long time!

Christmas Art Work

For the Christmas Performance Pink Class had been given the task of creating the Three Kings using art. Here are some photos of the students creating works of art both visually and through different textures.

Our trip to the Waie Inn

Just before Christmas we visited the Waie Inn. Students had time exploring the soft play area before they had lunch and then they they explored the play area outside.

Here are a selection of photos of students having a great day.DSC02261 DSC02256 DSC02228 DSC02229 DSC02242 DSC02290 DSC02281 DSC02307

The students behaviour throughout the day was fantastic. Everyone had a great day.

Making Pizza

Students really wanted to make Pizza last term and we decided to make them for our Winter Warmer (Social with the rest of the Key Stage).This is held in the round house in the Rural Skills Area and is becoming a termly event.

After students had chopped up and prepared their toppings they then had to assemble their pizzas. This meant spreading tomato puree and spreading cheese. Then they could add toppings of their choice. Making some extra ones for their Key Stage friends.
