Mr Harrison organised a red nose/egg and spoon race for the whole school on our Comic Relief Day, racing through obstacles in mixed teams. The winning team celebrated the next week with a winners breakfast courtesy of Mr Davis.
Today for our Topic lesson we had a go at playing games that encouraged turn-taking. We had games such as connect 4, pop and hop, Jigsaw and Dominos. It was fantastic to see all of the children enjoy taking part in their turn taking and encouraging each other.
Hazel class decided they wanted to try and help the Ukrainian Refugees.
In class we painted some mini plant pots and used our finger prints to make sunflowers.
Hazel class learnt that sunflowers are Ukraine’s national flower.
Inside the pots were some sunflowers to sow at home.
Hazel class raised £34, which will be donated to the British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.
The money will help someone affected get; food, water, shelter, first aid, medicine and warm clothes.
Well done Hazel pupils and thank you everyone who bought our sunflower plant pots.
]Good Morning Everyone
We are in the process of developing the school grounds and as part of this project we are renovating the horticultural area at the top of the school. We are hoping that some of you lovely people will come into school and help us out with this exciting project. So, if there are any green-fingered parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles or other relations we would love to see you in school on the 4th of April at 10:00!
Hazel class are continuing their work on habitats.
We are now focusing on microhabitats and during outdoor learning we collected some soil, leaves and worms to make our wormery.
Pupils were very careful when moving the worms to their new homes.
We learnt about the worms needs soil and water to survive. We also learnt that worms don’t like the sunlight and we had to keep them in the dark.
This week pupils in 90 have been exploring new foods, touching, smelling and tasting fruits. Today, for our comic relief super hero inspired day, we made some super juice to give our pupils a boost. The juice was packed full of fresh fruit and vegetables and plenty of natural vitamins. We created a green hulk juice with; kale, celery, apple, ginger, parsley and cucumber. Our orange juice was made with oranges, carrots and apples. Exploring and playing with food can help children to accept new foods. Some children need to see a food 6-7 times before trying it and taste it 10-15 times before liking it.
During Comic Relief day in Birch the children participated in a range of fun activities in real super hero style. The pupils enjoyed being dressed up as their own super hero such as Iron man, PJ mask, Super Mario and Mrs Devlin is comic relief hero in her own style. Activities included designing your own cape, making a Lego habitat for a red nose character, comic relief family snap, memory games and designing a poster during computing.
Good morning, we would like to gather your thoughts about our current school uniform.
Could you please click the link to complete our survey.
If you could please do this by 1st April 2022.
The results will be analysed and shared after the Easter holidays.
During Science this afternoon the pupils in Birch have been investigating if using a range of everyday products such as salt, flour, oil, sugar, rice, lime juice and hot chocolate would dissolve or not when added to cold water. The pupils then transferred the results of the findings into a carroll diagram and discussed the results individually whether or not the water dissolved and was clear or if the product changed the colour of the water. Mrs Kennedy decided to change the experiment and add the salt to hot water to see what difference it made. One child stated that ” This wouldn’t be a fair test because the rest was used in cold water not warm”. A good range of scientific vocabulary was used throughout this experiment and group discussion.
