Year 6 Trip

On Wednesday, Year 6 went on a trip to Milestones Museum, an indoor recreation of a Victorian town. We looked at old cars, fire trucks and even horse boxes! Horses were very important to the Victorians because they were the main source of transportation. There were many old Victorian shops and a few houses inside the museum and we loved going to the sweet sweet shop with our ration booklet that the lady stamped after we bought 2oz of sweets! We had a brilliant day!

Time to Talk Day

Today is Time to Talk Day. At St Ives we teach the children how important it is to be able to talk about our feelings and the importance of actively listening and respecting how others feel. We know that we can talk to our teachers & friends if we’re worried about anything. We know that we also have a wonderful Wellbeing Champion in Mrs Cooper, weekly wellbeing sessions we can attend, a worry box, a friendship bench and endless support so we don’t bottle things up! We are also looking forward to Monday when we’re going to Dress to Express for Children’s Mental Health Week. We can’t wait to show off our individuality and appreciate that we’re all different and unique!

Computing Lesson for Reception

Today in Computing, Reception went outside to practise following & giving instructions. The children started by practising following instructions to move around their outdoor classroom. Then they worked together to set up a small obstacle course. They then worked in pairs & gave their partner instructions on how to get across the course, whilst blindfolded. The children realised that it was hard & sometimes scary but soon learnt to listen & trust their friend.

We talked about what animal year we were born in, we made paper rabbits, then we went outside & coloured rabbits in small teams using chalk! We were all very proud of our rainbow rabbits & couldn't wait for our parents to come to collect us so that they could see our work!

Year 1 Forest School

In forest school this week Year 1 learnt about different animals in winter, focusing on birds. We talked about why birds may struggle to find food in winter because the ground is so frozen they can’t get to their food. The children then used oranges to make their own bird feeders, filling them with a mixture of bird seeds & fat. They enjoyed hanging them on the trees & we are looking forward to seeing what is left next week!

Reception Topic

Reception pupils are loving this term’s topic on toys. This morning they learnt about different toys through the ages and were lucky enough to explore the toy box which we have borrowed from Godalming Museum. They then had time playing with the toys, which included old cars, hoopla and catching the ball in the cup. What fun! Thank you Godalming Museum for lending us your fabulous toys.
