14/04/24 - What's Growing in Whiteshill?

It’s Science Week! This week the children in Elm Class have been learning about plants and exploring the question “What’s Growing in Whiteshill?

We’ve had an amazing time learning about the different types of plants that grow in our local area and learning how to identiy and classify these plants into different categories. On Tuesday we went on a rather damp walk through the village to see what sort of plants we could find. 

Mr Pritchard also led an amazing Forest School session in the beautiful sunshine where the children collected samples from different plants that they found in the forest. 

Thank you to all of our volunteers who baved the rain for our walk and those who got better luck ad joined us at Forest School as well.

22/03/24 - Ukulele Concert

Over the last 10 week the children in Elm Class have been learning the Ukulele as part of the Gloucestershire Music scheme. The children showcased their learning with a concert on Friday morning lead by their wonderful Ukulele teacher Mr F-P. 

Thank you too all of the parents who came and watch and support the children, I know that they absolutely loved performing for all of you. 

05/03/24 - World Book Day

We had a wonderful day last Tuesday celebrating World Book Day. It was a fantastic opportunity to hear about the children’s favourite books and stories and they all made a fantastic effort dressing up as their favourite characters.

In the morning we mixed with the rest of the classes in school and moved around the school to read a story with each class teacher and do some activities linked to these new stories. We read ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ ‘Julian is a Mermaid’ ‘The Bad Tempered  Labybird’ and ‘Peter Pan’. 

In the afternoon the children had an opportunity to share their favourite book with their classmates and draw some posters to tell us all about what they like reading about.
