Goldilocks and the Three Bears in Nursery

08/11/19

Nursery have read the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. In the story, Goldilocks decided to eat Daddy bear, Mummy bear and Baby bear’s porridge. The first bowl was too hot. The second bowl was too lumpy. The third bowl was just right. Our porridge was just right too! We enjoyed eating porridge with golden syrup. Some children were very brave to try a little bit of porridge for the first time!

On Thursday 17th October, the athlete Courtney Tulloch came to school where we had the opportunity to meet him. He prepared an obstacle course for us to complete some exercises such as star jumps and press ups. We had so much fun. He also demonstrated to us some of his gymnastics tricks. It was amazing to see him jumping over 4 teachers!

Celebrating Diwali - A Hindu festival of light

18/10/19

On Monday, in Reception we observed Diwali, a Hindu festival of light. We learned about Diwali and how it is celebrated in different parts of the world. We understand that Diwali is a celebration of light over darkness and good over evil.

It is a big celebration which lasts for 5 full days and involves cleaning and decorating houses, preparing delicious food and other delicacies, lighting up candles or lamps in the houses called 'divas', visiting relatives and going to the temple to pray.

We all enjoyed making our own 'divas' using salt dough, making rangoli patterns on plates, firework displays and lanterns. We even had a go at Bollywood dancing!

Key Stage 1 Sports Event

16/10/19

Ten lucky students from Year 2 were chosen to showcase their love of sports and teamwork here at South Borough Primary School. Last Thursday, we walked to Greenfields Primary School and took part in a Multi-Sports event. We had to follow different instructions for each activity, some were timed whereas other activities tested our accuracy. We had a busy and fun afternoon where we were complimented several times for our manners, teamwork and smiles!

Overall we came in 6th place out of the 12 schools that participated in the event. Well done to all our sports people!

Celebrating Diwali in Nursery

16/10/19

In Nursery we have talked about different celebrations. For our RE day we focused on the celebration of Diwali. We learnt about Diwali being the festival of light; light over coming darkness. We made our own salt dough candle holders and decorated them independently. On the messy table, we made fireworks using different materials. We made and decorated lanterns using paper, scissors and glue. We looked at Rangoli and made our own patterns using chalk and felt tip pens on paper plates. On the carpet, we drew around our feet and drew patterns inside the outline.

Year 5 Learning - Electrical series circuits!

11/10/19

As we come to the end of our first term together, the children are showing that they have settled well and seem to be enjoying the learning which we are undertaking in Year 5. This past couple of weeks have seen us learning about electrical series circuits as well as continuing to learn about the Stone Age. We have also performed a poem - Fruit Picking by Jack Oulsbey - for the Harvest Festival.

We will be moving onto the Bronze and Iron ages shortly after half term and next week we will also have a science day, RE day and a topic day too. The topic day will be all about the Arts and Crafts of the Stone Age and we look forward to sharing the pictures and art work that is produced in the next bulletin. Please can the children bring in an old shirt for the last day of term as the Topic day may well get messy!

Here are a few pictures of the last couple of weeks to share with you in the meantime. Have a great half term break.

Rainbow Harvest Festival – Wednesday 9th October 2019

09/10/19

To help represent each colour of the rainbow children were asked to come into school today wearing clothes of their year group’s given colour.

Some of the children’s learning has been based around that colour and harvest to bring the celebration to life. Thank you for making our Harvest Festival a huge success this year, with all of your food and toiletry donations. We greatly appreciate your generosity.

Brian the guinea pig meets the Nursery children!

09/10/19

Nursery were very lucky to meet Brian the guinea pig. We were very excited to meet Brian! We listened to and followed the instructions given by adults. We were very careful to stay quiet and not scare Brian. We were super brave to give Brian a gentle stroke. Thank you for visiting us Brian.
