Gymnastics

This half term children have begun a new Gymnastics programme called Rise Gymnastics (from British Gymnastics), replacing the Proficiency Awards covered last year. This is a much more holistic approach to Gymnastics, involving not just core skills but also apparatus work, pairs and group work too.

Year 5 Children Teach Nursery Children

Wonderful to see some of our Year 5 children teaching our Nursery children how to use the Bee-bots this morning. The Year 5s were so good at explaining how to use them & the Nursery children lapped up their every word, relishing in playing with the big children! It’s moments like these that add to the family feel of St Ives and build relationships throughout the school.

Year 6 Art

Excellent artwork by Year 6 pupils, who have loved working on self-portraits inspired by Julian Opie, reducing their heads to essential lines and colour planes.

Odd Socks Day

We’ve kicked off Anti-Bullying Week by taking part in Odd Socks Day today, taking time to celebrate our differences and how we are all unique. Year 6 pupils also produced posters to go around school marking this year’s theme of ‘Reach Out’. Thank you to the Anti Bullying Alliance for helping communities create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn.

World Kindness Day

Today is World Kindness Day and the theme this year is ‘Be Kind Whenever Possible’. Our culture is one of such outstanding pastoral care that kindness is ingrained in everything we do. However, we’ll be considering this theme and others as we approach Anti-Bullying Week, with Odd Socks Day tomorrow. We can’t wait to see you in your array of colourful socks and to celebrate how wonderful people’s differences are!

Year 3 Science

Year 3 had fun investigating forces in Science this week. They compared how fast cars moved down slopes with different surfaces and explored how far the cars would travel. They used their teamwork skills to work in groups and their measuring skills to evaluate their results.

Year 1 Forest School

Yay! The sun was out for Year 1’s Forest School today. The children were taught about fire safety and how to start a fire. They then gathered some different size logs from the dry log store and helped to build one. Once the fire was burning nicely, the best bit came……. toasting marshmallows and eating them. Lucky Year 1!

Year 1 English

Today in their English lesson, Year 1 discussed the story of the Gingerbread Man. The children were then allowed to design & decorate their own! There was a great deal of excitement & a few jelly sweets eaten! They then used adjectives to describe their finished products. Great work Year 1!
