Last week the year 1 children really enjoyed making some healthy vegetable pizzas. They put all of their new skills that they had learnt to the test to prepare the vegetables. They then took them home to cook and eat…. luckily most of them enjoyed what they had made!
Last week hedgehog class wrote letters to Santa as part of our English topic. Today we went for a walk in the village to post the letters off the Santa’s headquarters. We’re all hoping that our replies will arrive before the end of term!
Last week at forest school, we all made our own rain gauges. This week we took some rulers with us so that the children could measure how much rain we had had this week. When we got to the site, some of us found that our rain gauges had fallen over! This gave us a really good opportunity to explore other ways of making sure that they stay upright. Luckily some rain gauges did stay upright this week so we were able to measure each other’s. We then used leaves on a stick to record how many centimetres of rain we had measured.
Yesterday, the year 1 children learnt some new skills. We had to be really careful with the kitchen equipment that we were using! The children were so grown up using the utensils! Here we are preparing some vegetables…
Hedgehog Class had a fantastic time in the frost yesterday morning. We went out to explore where it had come from and what would happen to it if we touched it. Some of us were shocked at how cold the frost felt on our hands! And we were fascinated by how quickly the ice that we found melted when we held it tight in our hands. Here’s some of the fun that we had outside…
Hedgehog Class had a great time up at the Drumbles a couple of weeks ago… We had been looking at water flow and had been practising making little rivers using plastic equipment for a couple of weeks. We then decided to make a huge “River Drumbles” as a whole class. The children worked superbly as a team and here are their results…
Rabbits had a wonderful trip to Park Hall Farm Victorian School on Monday. They were dressed up in traditional Victorian clothing and then sat silently while the teacher took them through their times tables, knowledge of Victorian history and some writing (with right hands only!) on a slate with a slate pencil. The teacher was strict but very kind and the children really enjoyed acting the part of Victorian schoolchildren. There was time to look around the museum and some of the objects on display.
We baked…. we dressed up… we made masks…. and we had GREAT FUN raising lots of money for a brilliant cause: Children in Need!
Fun & Games Cluncil planned the events, ran the bake sale and mask competition. The total amount of money flabbergasted us all! Well done to all the children who got involved – a brilliant effort all round.
We have a skiing star to add to the array of talents at Ruyton! A huge well done to Rory and his elder brother, Max, who took part in a skiing competition on Friday night and represented our school.
It looks very daring and impressive! Well done Eddon boys, we are super proud of you both.
