You deserve this award for your fantastic retelling of the story Baboon on the Moon in your own words. You got on without a fuss, remembered to check for capital letters and full stops and even included adjectives and conjunctions into your sentences to add more detail. Well done!

The World’s Largest Lesson

This week, we completed the World’s Largest Lesson. This is aimed at making adults and children across the world more aware of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. In 2015, 193 countries across the world agreed by 2030 to achieve the following three things:

  • End extreme poverty
  • Fight inequality and injustice
  • Tackle climate change

Did you know that there were 17 Global Goals in total?

Do you know what any of them are?

We watched a short video that helped us to explain what the World’s Largest Lesson was about. Click here if you would like to watch this video again.

This year’s focus is on food, sustainability and hunger.

We watched a video that helped us to understand the focus this year. Click here if you would like to watch the video again and remind yourself of what the video was about.

We then set to work on deciding what our favourite foods were and looked at where they came from, how they got to our plate and what they were packaged in.

We promise to look after our world. We promise not to throw materials that can be recycled like cardboard and plastic in the bins. We promise to try and eat every piece of food that we have on our plates. Pearl class – September 2017

Football with SUCF

This week, Miss Varley had an extra special surprise for us. For our PE session, we got to work with Ash from the Sheffield United Community Foundation.

He taught us for to dribble and pass between a short distance and by the end of the session, we were able to put these skills to the test when we split into 4 teams and had a game of fottball against each other.

We can’t wait for our next session with Ash.

‘Little steps… Big control’

Forest Schools… Part 2

Today we had our second Forest Schools session with Sarah and Matt.

IMG_2607[1]

We warmed up by playing Winter Dragons. To be the dragon, we had to show Sarah our scary dragon faces and do the loudest dragon possible. This game helps us to warm up our bodies before we do any other activities.

Today, we split up into groups and went creeping and crawling in the Secret Garden to hunt for bugs. We didn’t know what we were going to find. Sarah and Matt told us how to collect the bugs carefully using some special bug pots. We had to look high and low but we were able to find lots of bugs.

We found bugs that we knew like spiders and woodlice but we also found bugs that we weren’t sure of. Sarah and Matt showed us how to use some special identification charts so we could tell what type of bug that they were.

After that, we started to hunt and forage around the Secret Garden to see what we could use to make a potion. Some of us made magic potions with magical spells and some of us make special perfumes that we could take home to our families.

Forest Schools is our favourite activity ever! We can’t wait for our next session!
