As the spring term ended in April, the Ducklings used this time to reflect on their achievements so far and add to our SECRET garden display. This half term, our SECRET value was Resilience. Therefore, we talked about how we have demonstrated resilience and celebrated our successes by creating our own individual and unique Resilience flowers to proudly display in the classroom.
This term our topic is the moon and space. We read and enjoyed our storybook ‘Man on the Moon.’ Then we learnt about the real man on the moon, Neil Armstrong. In Literacy, we wrote about the first moon landing. In Art, we used a pencil to sketch and shade a picture of Neil Armstrong after he had placed an American flag on the moon.
Year 2 have been really excited about our annual Easter Bonnet parade this month! They have been designing and making their own hats for the special day and, when it arrived, they all looked absolutely amazing! Well done, Year 2 and all of the infants!
Year 3 have had a busy and exciting month! We have been studying the Easter story and using it as inspiration for newspaper reports in our writing lessons. We have also used our DT and Science skills to create and erupt our own mini volcanoes - it was very fun and wonderfully messy!
During the spring term, year 4 have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. This month, we have been looking at the artwork of Quentin Blake and recreating iconic characters from the book in his unique style. The children did a brilliant job and had great fun creating their own bright and dynamic images for our class display!
Year 5 have been starting our new topic on Ancient Greece this month by looking at a range of different Greek gods! As a fun activity, we dressed in a Grecian robe and used our ICT skills to reinvent ourselves as our own Greek gods with our own special, unique powers!
It has been an incredibly proud month for year 6. As our Resilience challenge, we decided to collectively walk the distance from Kyiv to Lyiv to show our support for the people suffering from the war in Ukraine. We walked two miles a day and ended with a 3 mile walk around Ockbrook dressed in blue and yellow. The support from the community was incredible and we managed to raise over £2000 for Ukraine! An amazing achievement!
