Child Safety Week - Monday 4th to Friday 8th June 2018
As part of child safety week we had a visit from the local fireman. We had a fire safety talk, looked at the uniform they wear and a question answer session which involved Miss Plant get dressed up in the uniform. We got to have a closer look at the fire engine and we were all able to have a go at using the water hose!
Today we had a visit from Abbeycroft Leisure to talk about the importance of water safety and how to always following the SAFE code -
Spot - spot the dangers whenever you're near water
Advice - take advice, read the signs, ask a lifeguard or adult for help
Friend - always go with a friend or family, its more fun, and they can help in an emergency
Emergency - know what to do in an emergency
The children perform some rescues using jumpers, balls, ropes, paddles and woggles.
Lime Class' summer first half term learning plan
British Science Week 2018
To celebrate British Science Week we watched a short cartoon highlighting the global problem of plastic waste in our oceans. We made blue "plastic cheese" using milk and vinegar, which was very smelly. We also predicted what was in unlabelled tins by rolling them along the Hall floor!

Our Chinese New Year Assembly
Lime Class chose to design and make a Chinese Lion head for their assembly on Chinese New Year. They worked together as a team to produce a fantastic mask which they decorated in pom-poms ready to celebrate the event. They also made red packets containing two gold chocolate coins for each child and staff member in the school to give out during the assembly!
Maths puzzle day!
We have had great fun doing lots of puzzles as part of our maths problem solving day. Some of them were quite challenging but we all worked well as team to be able to solve them!
Alaska - tundra, ice and snow
Going into the Spring term, Lime Class will be going on an adventure to Alaska! During the coming weeks we will be looking at where Alaska and comparing it to the UK by researching the animals that live their and its climate.
The Cycle of Life
As an introduction to our unit on the Hindu religion, Lime class played a game of snakes and ladders to support their learning of Samsara, the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
Christmas was a busy time for us. As well as our outstanding performances in 'Tinsel & Tea towels' we had a trip to sing carols at the Cathedral and a visit from Father Christmas himself!
We have been starting to learn our numbers in French by playing hopscotch. We will also be finding out how to say our birth date in French.
As part of our work in Art, Lime class read the poem 'The Hippocrump' by James Reeves. We then drew our own interpretation of what the Hippocrump looks like using oil pastels. Our work was displayed in the main school corridor.
Anglo Saxon Crafts
Anglo Saxons - We have been trying our hand at making wattle and daub using materials from the field and classroom.
The Dragon Slayer
Lime Class went on a dragon hunt with other classes and found lots of evidence to suggest one had visited the school!
A big thank you for all the kind donations to Lime Class's harvest basket.
Lime Class have been using manipulatives such as Dienes for work on part-part-whole and place value.
Anglo Saxons - We have weaved coverings for harvest baskets and designed some rather snazzy clothing.
