Solar Eclipse

Today we took children onto the playground to watch the solar eclipse! Children had made their own pinhole viewers to watch the event.

Year Two even had an eclipse breakfast as Space is their topic! The children ate fruit, muffins and drank squash. They watched videos and made eclipse posters then all went outside to use their viewers and watch the eclipse. It was a remarkable event that they will remember for a long time.

Year 1′s Victorian Topic

Year 1 have been busy learning all about Brunel for their topic this term.

The adults did not come to school wearing their usual clothes…

They came as…

Can you guess? Victorian school teachers! This helped to get us all thinking about the period that Brunel lived in.

We also went to visit the SS Great Britain and got the opportunity to explore Brunel’s fantastic work!

Year 4 Trip to Steam

Today, children in Year 4 went to Steam in Swindon. They found out lots of information about air raid shelters and about being evacuees.

Have a look at some photos:

There are lots more photos from both classes on the Year 4 blog: tmhpyearfour.primaryblogger.co.uk

Friendship Bench

Joseph and Jack worked together worked together to create a friendship bench for our school.

“When I was a school councillor I thought it would be a good idea to have a friendship bench in our playground for children who needed a friend to play with. We raised some money and bought a bench which is now in the playground. Jack and I rubbed it down and painted it . We hope you like it and if one day you need a friend then go and sit on the bench and I am sure someone will come along and talk to you.” – Joseph

“Joseph is my friend and he asked me to help him so I did. We rubbed down the bench and then painted it. Please look after the bench and treat it with respect.” – Jack

Holding chicks

This week we have been able to hold the chicks. Have a look at Eagle class holding the little chicks really carefully.

Chinese Dragons

Last week, we had lots of children bring in Chinese dragons in celebration of the Chinese New Year.
All the children who brought in a dragon put in a lot of effort to create really high quality pieces of work. We even made a display with them!
