Our Special Books
10th September 2021
Our RE topic for this half term focuses on the Bible and why it is such a special book. To kick start our new topic, we all brought in our own special book from home and shared it with the rest of the class.
7th September 2021
As part of our new topic 'A Place Where We Live', we have sketched our local landmark - Lytham Windmill. Mrs Norman worked SO hard creating an amazing giant windmill for our topic display. We are very grateful and we absolutely love it!
We had such a fantastic time at our Sports Day. The sun was shining and everyone had so much fun! We had three different races on the track which were racing, skipping and bat and ball balancing. Then we had three activities on the playground which were a beanbag challenge, a water relay and a ball relay. We loved it!
Our Christian Value for this half term is 'Faith'. We talked about faith meaning to have complete trust in something or someone. We thought about what faith means to us as individuals and we made 'Faith Shields' to show that we are strong and protected when we have faith.
In PE this half term we have been focusing a lot on throwing, running and jumping. Today we started practising running as fast as we can on the racing track. We talked about the skills we need to think about to help us with our running and also how to stay in our own lanes! We think our starting positions look great!!!
Jesus was Special
This half term in our RE we have been reading stories from the New Testament in the Bible that show Jesus was special. We have read 'The Storm on the Lake', 'Feeding the Five Thousand' and 'The Calling of the Disciples'. Here are some photographs of our moving pictures that we made to go with the story 'The Storm on the Lake.'
Mental Health Awareness Week
For Mental Health Awareness Week we spent a lot of time with nature to help our wellbeing and we loved it!!! We spent time hugging trees, walking around with our shoes and socks off and creating natural pictures. We loved laying down on the ground and cloud watching whilst listening to birds. We could see so many pictures in the sky.
This week we have had our Christmas party! We played lots of party games and did lots of dancing! Then we had crisps and juice! We are having so much fun getting ready for Christmas.
This week we have been getting excited about Christmas. We have had a Christmas lunch in our own clothes and we have been making Christmas decorations. We have also been playing 'Present Dash' and 'Bash the Bauble' in PE. Most importantly we had a zoom call with Father Christmas! It was so exciting! He even recognised some of us and called out our names!

As part of British Science week we did a helicopter investigation. Like the sycamore tree seed the helicopter had two propellers. We discovered that if we put more paper clips on the helicopter it spun faster.
