As a treat for the final week of term, Miss Steward put on a fantastic story time based on the story of Snow White for the whole school. We all enjoyed getting involved, acting the story out and seeing the amazing scene that had been created!
This week, St.Anne’s was lucky enough to have visitors all the way from China. We did an assembly presentation on our value of Perseverance and gave the gifts to remember St.Anne’s by.
Olive Class had so much fun at the school disco today!
We loved dancing and playing musical statues and doing the limbo and there were even bubbles and foam!!
This term our topic in Geography and History has been Around the World!
This week we were learning about different countries around the world and we thought the about the similarities and differences between countries.
Each child was asked to bring in an object, photograph or item from a country that they had visited, a country their family was from or just a country they thought was interesting.
We shared these objects with the class and children were even able to share some words in different languages as well!
We had some amazing items! From money, to musical instruments and even some dolls!
On a beautiful sunny day, we headed down to King George’s park for our annual sports day!
The morning was filled with fantastic sportsmanship and lots of great races.
Well done to the winning house St. Elizabeth, you were all fantastic!
Olive Class haven’t just been looking at plants in Science we have also been looking at plants in our Art lessons.
We began this term by studying the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. We read a story called Camille and the Sunflowers and then we learnt about the Van Gogh’s painting of sunflowers. We created our own versions of his sunflower painting.
We decided to create our own paintings inspired by Van Gogh’s bright colours and big brush strokes.
We visited the school garden to choose a flower for our painting and practice sketching it.
Come to the Art Exhibition and Open Day next week to see our finished artwork!!
In Literacy today Olive Class received an exciting looking tray with some seeds, some plant pots, a trowel and a letter from Oliver.
Oliver asked Olive Class to help him plant some seeds so that he could grow come vegetables just like his grandpa.
Olive Class decided that they needed to write a set of instructions to send to Oliver so that he can learn how to plant his seeds.
This week we will be learning how to write a clear set of instructions for Oliver to follow!
In Maths Olive Class have been learning to describe position and direction. We have been using some new mathematical vocabulary to talk about position and direction.
Today we learnt to listen and follow instructions given by a friend.
We worked in pairs. One person read the instructions and the other person followed the instructions and moved in the correct direction or into the correct position.
Throughout the lesson we showed off our amazing team work skills!
In Science Olive Class have been learning about plants!
This week we learnt about wild plants! We wanted to find out which wild plants were the most common type in our school. We decided the best way to find out the answer would be to go on a wild plant hunt around the school. We decided to record the number of each plants we found so we could find out which were the most common and which were the least common!
Olive Class loved taking part in Football Day to help raise money for Soccer Aid!
We had so much fun completing the obstacle course set up by Year 6!
