On Wednesday we had our trip to the London Zoo Living Nativity; it was such an enjoyable day and an amazing experience for all of us. The children were incredibly polite and represented the school brilliantly, we were all very proud of them.
The children wrote a recount of their trip to the zoo and recalled their favourite parts of the day, they thought the shepherds were funny and Mary was very sweet, lots of the children enjoyed seeing Father Christmas because he was a bit silly; he thought a kangaroo was a camel! The children were able to tell him where various continents and countries were on a globe and knew what the equator was, he was very impressed! The children also enjoyed looking at various animals around the zoo.

Roald Dahl Museum
We enjoyed a trip to the Roald Dahl Museum and impressed the museum leaders with our knowledge. “I loved all of it!” Elsie. “I liked the walk in the afternoon when we saw the window that the BFG looked into.” Betty. “I learnt that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was first called Charlie the Chocolate Boy.” Hudson.
A rather wet Sports Day at Beauclerc School. But we carried on regardless!
Reception and Year 1 visited the Science Museum. “The water area was great.” Oscar & Max. “Dance and music was fantastic” – Matthew. The children were very well behaved and very tired by the time we got back to school. Reception children particularly enjoyed the multi-sensory garden they visited.
On Thursday some of the Yr2’s took part in a football tournament at Springfield school. Our first game was against Springfield and our second match was against Chennestone. We came 4th in the tournament but we were definitely the best team for effort and team work! We had a great time and our adults we very pleased with our great sportsmanship.
Cultural Arts Week
Hola! This week we have traveled to Spain for the Olympics themed Arts week. We have looked at Spanish culture and learnt a few Spanish words. “Rojo means red, Azul means blue, Blanco means white.” Betty. Mrs Silvestre taught us an amazing flamenco routine; Mrs Holder showed us how to create fantastic paintings and Mrs Brooks helped us to print on our own Spanish flag.
Diamond Jubilee Street Party
In preparation for our Diamond Jubilee party Blue Class worked in small groups to design and create some games for the rest of the school to play. Our games are ‘Beat the Queen’, ‘Find a diamond’ and ‘Crack the Queens safe’. We can’t wait to play them.
The children had great fun at our Pancake Races. The skills of our afternoon Nursery, the youngest children in the school, where amazing. They were able to toss and catch the pancake back in the pan and toss the pancake to another pan – brilliant co-ordination skills.
We have had a fantastic book week. We have read and listened to many fairy tales and twisted tales. We have planned and written our own twisted tales too.
On Wednesday afternoon the whole school walked down to Chennestone to see Winston Nzinga, a story teller and musician. A shower of rain on the way did not dampen spirits and all the children enjoyed the songs and the stories which were performed in such an entertaining way that even the 3 and 4 year old children sat and joined in for a whole hour!
