F2 Pancake Race!

This week we have been learning about Pancake Day. We made our own pancakes and chose two toppings to put on them. They were delicious! 
Today we looked at how people can celebrate Pancake Day and found out some people have pancake races. We decided to make an obstacle course for our pancake race. We had to carefully weave our way round the cones, step along the stepping stones, balance along the bricks, and finish the race by flipping the pancake! We all had great fun!

Denim for Diabetes day

We like to say a huge thank you to everyone for supporting the Denim for Diabetes day. We are delighted to say we raised £507.90 for the local support group of Diabetes Uk. The day was organised by one of our students, Amelia. She did a superb day of raising awareness throughout the day.  

F2 dragon dance

F2 were delighted to celebrate all their learning about Chinese New Year by performing a dragon dance  through the school.  We took the dragons we had made, musical instruments and colourful scarves.  We called out "Kung hei fat choy!" to the rest of the school. We hope you all enjoyed the dragon dance.

How many hungry caterpillars?

KS1 were visited today by 'West End in Schools' who bring books to life through dance. We all had a meeting with our dance teacher at the start of the day and she explained what the West End in
London is. She also showed us some of her dance skills.

We then split into classes and had individual sessions. We started off by warming up our bodies as this is really important. We then listened to 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and discussed the story. After this we started to learn a dance that told the story of 'The Hungry Caterpillar'. We all did really well and had great fun. Watch out for more photos and videos on our big screen and in our gallery.

Who is your favourite book character? World Book Day 5th March

World Book DayIt's creeping ever closer to World Book Day, so it is time to put on your thinking caps and start planning which character you will come to school as. This year we will be asking for donations which we will be sending to the MND (motor neurone) association. We have decided to support this charity at the request of two of our pupils who are arranging several fundraising events for the charity. You can find out more about the association by following this link

As well as dressing up as your favourite character, we will be arranging another book swap, holding a competition between classes and arranging other activities linked to reading.

Valentine's Parent Craft in F2!

We were so happy with the high number of parents who were able to attend our F2 Valentines Craft Session! If you missed out, look out for the Easter event.
...We were even more impressed with the high level of enthusiasm, it must be the reason we have such  a creative cohort!
Thank you for your 'lovely' support, it was a treat to see the children communicating with you and happily working together in our academy!

Dragon visit to F2!

In F2 We have been learning all about Chinese New Year. We have read the story of Chinese New Year and found out that this year is going to be the year of the sheep. 
We were visited by a Chinese dragon who showed us the Chinese New Year dragon dance. After that we got to dress up in some smaller dragons and do our own dance! 
We are looking forward to making our own dragons in our classrooms and going on a dragon dance around the school!

Book Fair Books

Many thanks to all of you who visited the book fair we had before Christmas. As a reward for all the books you bought, we were able to get nearly £800 worth of free books. The books have arrived and have today been dispatched to various places around school.

These books will be making their way to the library after Y6 children have written some book reviews for them.

These books have been added to the Year 3 and 4 book corners.

These books will be used in Y1 and 2.

Finally, these books will be added to the Y5 and 6 book corners.

We will continue adding to the book corners in all classes with the funds we raise from our next book fair.

We could not do it without your support, so thank you once again.

Watch out for a letter winging its way towards you in the next couple of days and start thinking of extreme places to read. Please make sure that wherever you choose to read is a safe place.

The Wold Academy Snowman

Today F2 had so much fun exploring the snow. The first challenge was to get ready, fastening our own coats, putting boots on and wrapping up in hats, scarves and gloves.  

We built a snowman, which was named The Wold Academy Snowman! We travelled on a sledge, made snowballs and brought some snow inside to observe and see how it melted.  After our snowballing fun we all enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate to warm ourselves up again.  We are hoping for some more snow tonight!
