Recently, six groups of Year 8 girls have been hard at work competing against thousands of other students across the country in the NCSC CyberFirst Girls Competition. This is a competition designed to inspire and encourage the young women of tomorrow to consider a career in cyber security and has seen the girls complete tough challenges across advanced topics like logic, coding, cryptography and networking. Well done girls!
3N had a lovely afternoon on Wednesday, producing clay coil pots during their Art lesson. It was great fun and all the children should be very proud of the perseverance they demonstrated and their fantastic final products. Well done 3N!
6W had fun excavating fossils in their science lesson. They channelled their inner Mary Anning and kept tapping away until their fossil was revealed! "I liked discovering which dinosaur fossil was hiding beneath the rock." Lexie. "We had to be gentle but our dinosaur's foot still came off!". Kara "It was cool when you could see which dinosaur was emerging from the rock." Nathan "It was frustrating and exciting at the same time, as it took a while to come out. This is how Mary Anning would have felt." Rosie.
Personal,social and emotional development:Self-confidence and self-awareness. The children in Saplings have been exploring new environments.
Nursery- This week, we have been looking at how to care for the birds during the winter. All of the children have made 'Bird cake' to take home for their garden birds. In forest school we went on a hunt to find woodland animals and we have been using binoculars to identify the birds in our garden.
Nursery and Saplings- As part of our fundraising programme this term, we are going to continue to support 'The Need Project' which is a local charity that supports families in need and the homeless in the county. We would like to collect toiletries that will be delivered as part of their distribution work. This can also include nappies and wipes for babies. We kindly thank you for all the support you have given us in these successful collections.
Nursery- Our 'recycling centre' role play has been very popular over the past couple of weeks. The children have also been learning about what happens to rubbish and the impact on our planet and how to make a positive difference by recycling everything we can.
