Tree Planting Trip

On Friday 23rd November children from St Anne’s school were invited to take part in a tree planting event in King George’s Park as part of National Tree Planting Week.

In order to win a place on the trip children had to complete a tree quiz. Two winners were selected from each class.

The winners were:

Olive: Harry and Milena

Willow: Ethan and Chloe

Maple: Cassie and Declan

Palm: Wirda and Daisuke

Elm: Ronika and JoJo

 

The winning children went down to King George’s Park on Friday morning with Mrs. Steward. The children helped to plant two trees in the park.

 

      

Next time you’re in King George’s Park look out for St Anne’s trees!

Well done to all the children who took part in the tree quiz! There were some amazing entries!

Shapes!

We had 18 straws and we used them to make octagons. We managed to make two irregular octagons! How many sides can you count?

 

WANTED

Some cheeky household items were found sneaking around the Willow classroom this week! Traction Man wrote to Willow class and asked us to make wanted posters for these villains!

 

Science Museum

On Tuesday, Willow Class visited the Science Museum for our new Science topic on Materials. We visited the Pattern Pod where we explored making patterns and then we visited the Materials gallery where we saw objects made from different materials. There was even a metal wedding dress!

 

Parent reading

Every Friday, parents are invited to come into class to read with children. Willow Class love reading with all the adults that visit!

Traction Man!

Today in Literacy we freeze framed parts of Traction Man and thought about how the characters might be feeling and what they might be saying or thinking! Can you tell which characters we are meant to be?

 

Achoo!

Willow class have been super scientists and carried out a sneezing experiment! We investigated how far saliva travels when we sneeze and made posters about it. We thought about the importance of hygiene and how we can prevent spreading colds and other illnesses!
