Trip to Summerfield Woods

Today we visited the Bohemia walled garden to dig up leeks, that the school have grown. We also planted some daffodils and look forward to caring for them and seeing them grow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whilst at the gardens we also walked around the woods on a leaf hunt. The leaves the children found they then rubbed over to see the different patterns. Also the sculptor we are studying is Andy Goldsworthy, therefore we tried to create our own versions of his work out of leaves and twigs.

 

We are hoping to make leek and potato soup next week with what we picked today!

Year 5 Sponsored Skipathon

We had a lovely morning outside on Wednesday to raise money for an astrodome visit, later on this term, for our learning adventure on space.

Each class had two attempts to work out their personal best for the most skips in 2 minutes. After their attempts they could re energise with fruit and squash!

The aim of the skipathon was for each class to get 1500 skips in 2 minutes. Both classes did amazingly and soared above this!

Pearl class had a total of 2448 skips.

Ruby class had a total of 3265 skips.

Well done to all the children in both classes and thank you to all parents, carers, relatives and friends who sponsored the children in year 5 we have raised a total of £250 and still have some sponsorship forms to come back!!

Town Explores a Book with Emma Harding.

A mixture of children from different year groups were able to work alongside Emma Harding, a ceramic artist.  The children made tiles, which will be fired and then displayed as a shelter in Gensing Gardens.  This was inspired by Daniel Defoe’s book, Robinson Crusoe.  Look out for all the other activities happening around St. Leonards over the holiday too.

Year 5 – Tudor Dance

The Year 5’s have worked very hard this term. Their learning adventure about the Tudors has taken them to visit Michelham Priory, discover more about Henry VIII and his wives and explore the experiences faced by someone living in Tudor times.

Alongside this they have used their PE lessons to create a Tudor dance. The children worked hard learning the steps and making sure they kept in time with the music. As their termly home learning, the children were encouraged to make a Tudor costume to wear during their performance.

On Monday 1st April they held a performance in the playground infront of family members.

Here are a few of the photos taken that day.

Keep your eyes peeled for video footage of the children dancing coming soon.
