Welcome back to a new school year!  Autumn phase on the very first morning doing Wake and Shake outside.

Tuesday 23rd June, 2020 (Key Worker Bubble - All year groups)

We've been looking at The Very Hungry Caterpillar for these 2 weeks. Week 1 - We loved reading the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We coloured pictures of beautiful butterflies. We enjoyed drawing pictures with chalk on Our Rainbow Wall. We had fun hiding in the long grass on The Bray Way. and we made creations from the Korbo, Popoids and the Georello.  

Week 2 - So far we have enjoyed using our senses to taste some of the food that The Hungry Caterpillar ate through. We tried pieces of apple, plum, orange and strawberry.

A few pictures from the Year 5 bubble:
Maths - Measuring using metric and imperial units and beginning to convert between.  Topic - This week's topic question is "Where do you find whales?" We were introduced to a northern bottlenose whale in our class read 'This morning I met a Whale' and the character knew that the whale shouldn't be in the River Thames. Miss Guild gave a talk about whales and shared her experiences of working with and spotting whales. The children had the opportunity to ask questions about different species of whale and found out that whales can actually be found all over the world!   Art - The children began a class art project to recreate one of Christian Birmingham's illustrations from the front cover of our class read using chalks. 

 

22.5.20 -  Year 6 Hoodies were handed over to the children.

It was lovely to see the children. Have a great half term break!

Here are pictures from today where the children made their own kites using sticks, string, tape and recycled plastic bags! They had lots of fun testing them in the windy weather.

Last Monday, we had fun testing and experimenting with balloon rockets and lava lamps.

Today we have celebrated VE day at Nafferton Primary School. They learned about what happened 75 years ago and why we still celebrate in 2020. 

At 11 a.m. we sang to the village, including "You are my sunshine", "Pack up Your Troubles" and "We will meet again". The children then prepared for the celebrations by making flags, placemats and decorated buns. They also cracked some morse code messages, recreated the famous V light over Saint Paul's Cathedral using chalks and made spitfire paper planes. 

We finished the day with a picnic outside in the sunshine. We hope you enjoy celebrating together at home on Friday!

Key Stage One and Foundation Stage were shipwrecked and had to build a shelter and a fire to keep them safe! 

Mr S: Our Key Worker children's forest school session involved playing pirates and surviving on a desert island, making picture frames, natural artwork and making hot chocolate over the fire. A fab day! :D

The children helped Mrs Cooper, Mrs Rogerson and Mrs Stinson create an underwater display for the school. We used chalk to create the bubbles in water and painted some truly topical fish! - Mrs Cooper.

Busy afternoon forest schooling:

FS & KS1 - Listened to the Gruffalo Story. We created hiding places (dens) for mouse, snake, owl and fox.  The children became the Gruffalo with knobbly knees, purple spikes on their backs and a poisonous wart at the end of their noses. They they went on the hunt for animals.

KS2 - made charcoal and started making outdoor furniture and accessories for the fairy houses such as slides, bridges, ladders, etc.

All children peeled sticks and toasted marshmallows. - Mrs Cawthorn.

Thank you so much to all of you who were able to join in with 'All Things Bright and Beautiful' this morning. From speaking to others, we know there was a tear or two in the village!
