Class Production - We'll Meet Again
Evacuated to Stibbington- As part of our World War 2 topic, the children dressed up and took on the role of wartime evacuees whilst assuming the name of an actual evacuee from history. We were met by our billeting officer who showed us around the village, pointing out the landmarks and our new host homes. We were lucky to enjoy a fly over and parachute drop from our 'boys in blue' and a visit to the local church. When the children arrived at the school they experienced filling in their identity cards, a propaganda poster quiz, a gas mask drill, writing with dip pens, learning songs and even a message from Princess Elizabeth. Imagine our surprise when the air aid siren went off and we made our way to the Morrison shelter! At lunch we even tried SPAM sandwiches and played with authentic toys from the time. We had an amazing day and got a real sense of what it would have been like for the 'real' evacuees during the war!
Gymnastics County Final Ipswich
French Cafe! Squirrels classroom was transformed into our very own French cafe. We decorated the tables and designed menus (in French of course)! On the day we baked crepes and dressed up to greet our parent customers, speaking in French as much as possible. We took orders, prepared and served food and drinks. It was an amazing experience and we got lots of great feedback - Bon Apetite!
Gymnastics Competition. After three rounds of exciting competition in front of the judges, we were astounded and proud to be announced as overall winners in the Lower Key Stage 2 category. We have now qualified for the county finals in Ipswich in June!
A visit by some scientists from Cambridge. We explored different animal skulls and discussed what they could tell us about how they ate and hunted.
Sharing the Love! For Valentine's Day our wonderful parents sent the children messages of love and shared how they thought they were special.
Making our own Digestive System! We used everyday materials to represent the organs and other parts. It helped us gain a greater understanding of how the digestive process works.
Drama Activity: As part of our work on play scripts, we acted out a scene from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
