Theme Days

June 2021

Year 4 have had a great fun while learning about their new thematic topic 'Meet the Greeks' with Steve from Humphs Histories. They learnt lots of facts including how we find out about the past, where Greece is in relation to the rest of the World, how far the Greeks travelled, and the evidence that tells us this, what the Ancient Greeks ate, Greek gods and the legacy that has been left behind.
They attempted the Archimedes Puzzle, which was a little tricky, but with perseverance they solved it in the end ūüôā
The class were divided into two groups - the Athenians and the Spartans, within their groups they each painted their own shield which they used later in the afternoon to protect themselves, after they attempted crushing grapes, with their feet!
The day finished with Year 4 participating in two Olympic events - the discus and the javelin. Watch this space, we may have a future Olympian within Year 4.
A great day was had by all.

During this years World Book Day celebrations children enjoyed reading their favourite books while wearing their pyjamas!

Monday 16th November marked the start of this years ‚ÄėAnti-Bullying Week‚Äô event. Our¬†school¬†were¬†excited to¬†join¬†in with others around the UK to participate in Odd Socks¬†Day!
As part of our involvement in the event within school, we asked children to come to school with odd socks on Monday 16th November. We used this day to celebrate that we are
all unique and children took part in a variety of activities linked to this theme throughout the week.

Year 4 enjoyed finding out about where our food comes from, but the best part of all was eating it!

We also looked at different types of foods, the processes needed to change food into what we eat as well as designing a new food bag.

A busy, but fun day of learning was had by all.

 

   

Year 6 LOVED our special Harvest Celebration Day! We learnt so much about Harvest and where our food comes from, got crafty with nature and enjoyed a delicious lunch!

All of Team Edwards wore their pyjamas and were excited for the children to see the den they had created! 

Children also came to school in their pj's and were able to spend time listening to and reading stories in the den - it felt like a giant sleepover!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Throughout the day children enjoyed sharing a book with their friends.

 

 

A special World Book Day Menu too!
