Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Take a look at what we have been getting up to...

Children in Need 2023

Anti-Bullying Day - Make a noise! We took part in the 'odd socks day' and created our own 'make a noise' posters about bullying.

Remembrance - We have created our own multimedia charcoal artwork as part of our learning about the importance of remembrance. Don't they look fantastic!

Forest School Fairy Houses

Victorians - We have been learning about Victorian life and how Victorian children lived. As part of our learning, we made our very own Victorian peg dolls.

PE Trip - We had an amazing morning at Ashby High School. We took part in multi-skill based challenges to develop our agility, balance and co-ordination.

ENGLISH - We had a great morning using role-play to get into character to understand what happens to the different characters in our new story 'Anansi and Tiger'.

PSHE - We had a visit from a lovely lady from SCARF and her special guest Harold the giraffe! We learnt lots of helpful information to help take care of our wonderful bodies!

LOCAL HISTORY - We went around our village and compared how Swannington used to look and compared it to now, take a look at our recreated photos!

Hough Mill - As part of out local history topic, we visited Hough Mill, Swannington. We learnt about how the mill worked and what it was used for. We also observed anything we could see that was from the past or present.

Local History - We were lucky to have a visit from Mrs Ball from Swannington Heritage Trust to introduce our local history topic. We held some of Swannington's coal, looked at historical pictures and had a go in our own bell pit simulation.

Conkers Trip! - We went on an exciting trip to Conkers and learnt lots more information about our habitat topic in science. We had so much fun!

Exploring in Science - We had a lovely afternoon exploring our school grounds and gardens, looking for micro-habitats with our magnifying glasses to find out what lives in them.

Science Research - We used our iPads to research the 10 different land habitats; what they are, where they are and what living things can be found in them!

Role Play in English - Oak Class have been doing some fabulous role play as part of our English topic. We have really enjoyed retelling the story of Monkeys and Hats. We got into character as the hat maker being interviewed and phoning the hat makers dad to talk about how we feel about having our hats stolen! Get job everyone!

RE - 06.09.2023 - We spent some time outside during RE, thinking about the creation of the world. We used our senses to appreciate the beautiful nature outside. We then thought about all the natural things we are thankful for!
