Danube Class RE

Children in Danube class have been very excited, as they were the first to use the brand new key stage 1 bibles. We already have a set of class bibles for older children, but not for younger pupils. We were very fortunate to receive a grant from The Jerusalem Trust. The children are really enjoying the hardback covers and the bright, coloured pictures. The books are very accessible for younger readers. Mrs Wright was really pleased, as she was able to enhance her planned lesson on the Easter story with a whole class set of bibles. One of the children enjoyed reading his bible so much that he carried on reading it, during some free time at the end of the day. He even put a bookmark in ‘for next time’! Thanks to The Jerusalem Trust for this generous donation.

Danube Class Poems

The children in Danube Class have had a fantastic week of sensory poetry inspired by nature in the school grounds. 

They spent time outside at the start of the week to collect ideas using their senses: sight, sound, smell and touch.

They then put their ideas into a poem, using the structure:

Such a sound I heard… 

Such a sight I saw… 

Such a touch I touched…

Such a smell I smelt… 

Once written, the children read them to the class with a partner doing some actions. It was lovely to see how proud they each were of their poems.

They really are wonderful and we hope you enjoy them as much as us.

Forest Schools – Tuesday 29th November

What a fantastic time we’ve had during our Forest School sessions! We have learnt so many new skills such as tying knots, using a range of tools, learning how to light a fire (and cook on it) and survival skills. It has been so fun to spend every Tuesday in our Forest School area learning about the environment and spending time in the fresh air. We couldn’t think of a better way to finish our sessions than with a hot chocolate, brownies, cakes, biscuits and other treats!
