Gymnastics

This half term children have been working through a new Gymnastics programme called 'Rise Gymnastics' (new this year from British Gymnastics). In Early Years, skills & activities are linked to a theme & Reception have been thinking about 'People who help us'. This week, we were paramedics, carrying an inured teddy around the gym course - over obstacles, up slopes, off benches & tables & through hoops. We talked about 'matching ' or 'mirroring' our partners & it was a real team effort to get teddy safely through the course on a stretcher. Y1 are working on the 'discovery skills' & this week focused on taking weight on hands & balances with & without a partner. We finished with some lovely counterbalances.

Year 5 PSHE

Year 5 enjoyed a virtual call with social psychologist Professor Rhiannon Turner today. Rhiannon was the resident expert on Channel 4’s landmark documentary The School ‘The Tried To End Racism’. She gave a fascinating talk on white privilege & unconscious racial bias & answered the children's questions. This formed a central part of the class' PSHE work on racism. Thank you so much to Rhiannon for furthering our learning on this important topic.

Christmas Window in Cockerills Shoes on Haslemere High Street

Yesterday we launched our Christmas window in Cockerills Shoes on Haslemere High Street. Every pupil in the school and many of our Nursery children have drawn the stars that make up the Christmas tree and we think it looks fantastic! If you get a chance, please take your children along so they can have a look for their star in the St Ives Christmas tree! Thanks so much to Cockerills Shoes for lending us their window and to the Parish of Haslemere for this lovely, festive idea.

Nursery Takes Part in Operation Christmas Child Shoebox

We are extremely proud of our Nursery children this week as they have taken part in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal. The children really enjoyed learning how their gifts would be sent to children who may not receive any gifts at Christmas and were so willing to hand their boxes over.  Well done children - your kindness and generosity will make other children very happy this Christmas!  Thank you Samaritans Purse for organising this wonderful initiative.

Year 5 Geography

Year 5 had great fun in Geography this week as they continued their work on mountain formation. They have been making volcanoes in groups and this week they got the chance to erupt them using vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and food colouring! They really enjoyed watching the 'lava' flow, seeing how volcano cones develop over time and how the settlements around the volcanoes were in danger from eruptions.

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.
