Welcome to Voyager
The term is now well underway, and it is great to see all the children settling in so well. We have had a very productive start to the term with a visit from Ben the Explorer to kick off our new project. All the children were very engaged and now really eager to learn more about the Black Rhino, and the importance of conservation more generally.
In addition, we have had our first swimming session which generated an enormous amount of excitement, and are looking forward to continuing over the coming weeks.
Be sure to check back throughout the term for updates and photographs of what we are getting up to.
Muscles and bones
As part of our new project the children have been learning about the skeleton and how muscles allow us to move. Here they are investigating which muscles are needed when we run, and when we stand and hold a book.
The children have written some fantastic rhyming and haiku poems this week. They then performed them in front of the class.
Uphill runs the world competition
The children worked very hard and showed great determination in our inter-class running competition.
The children had a fantastic time taking part in an Astronomy workshop run by ‘Space Detectives’. They learned all about what it takes to be an astronaut and had great fun putting their astronaut skills to the test.
