The Gruffalos completed the Red Nose Day cup stacking challenge in the super speedy time of 10 minutes and 5 seconds. Great teamwork, Gruffalos!
Y2 are currently using The Day the Crayons Quit in their English lessons. In the photos, the Gruffalos were creating freeze-frames to show the emotions of the crayons in the story. They are now beginning to write a persuasive letter from the perspective of a piece of classroom stationery!
The Gruffalos had a fantastic World Book Day, including a surprise visit by Miss Robinson to read Egg. They were engrossed by the wordless book, Journey, and it sparked some great discussion.
In gymnastics today we have been practicing our balances. We used the equipment to see how we could travel and balance along it. The Gruffalo children were so sensible and enjoyed exploring the equipment.
Welcome to a new term. Before we let you know what is happening in Spring 2 we must show you the fab activities the children did at Kingswood. The children were absolutely fantastic! Even to the point of another teacher from another school in the facility telling me how wonderful and polite our children were! The children were pretty excited when we arrived...
One of the amazing features of Kingswood was their bouldering facility. The children were like little monkeys climbing all over the walls!
A really fun activity was Nightline. The children were blindfolded and had to make their way through an obstacle course. The teamwork and communication on show was brilliant!
The children showed the usual Walkley spirit, working together and using communication skills in order to problem solve...
On the second day, the children used natural materials to make some environmental art.
Our final task was to make a raft for the Kingswood monkeys (who came back with us). These were named Pumpkin, Mr. Banana and Tiny Fred (named by the children of course!)
What an experience! The children really enjoyed the food, we had a bonfire with songs and dance moves, a movie with hot chocolate and bunkbeds with their friends. An experience that will stay with them forever.
