Today we discussed what we would like to achieve in 2019. We thought about things that we might want to improve, try for the first time or learn. As well as this we discussed what we would like see happen in the UK and across the world this year. Afterwards we used pastels to create our ‘Dream Jars’.
On Friday Sparrowhawks didn’t go home at 3:15pm instead they stayed the night at school. As well as cooking their own tea (spaghetti bolognese), they played games in the hall and set up their beds for the night in the classrooms. In the evening they went for a night walk up on the common and played games in the dark! After finishing their film and some much needed hot chocolate they made their way to bed for sleep.
All the children had a fantastic time and it was great to see so many of them step out of their comfort zone and try new things.
This week and part of our topic of ww1 we have been learning about the importance of remembrance. We have made poppies out of wool and read the story ‘Poppy Field’ by Michael Morpurgo.
On Monday Sparrowhawks and Ospreys went to Gloucester to visit the Mosque( just of Barton Street) and the Cathedral. It was a really interesting day where we learnt about what happens in different places of worship. We had a talk from an Iman at the Mosque and heard about the Five Pillars, we looked around the building and also tried on different clothes.
After that we all walked to the Cathedral where we had lunch. Later we learnt about prayers,stain glass windows and pilgrimages. We made holders for small candles, created our idea for a window and produced some silhouettes of a chalice. We all had a really great day.
In Sparrowhawks we are learning how to code. We are really enjoying learning how to do this and always work hard to move on to the next level. Sometimes what we have to do takes a lot of working out but we do persevere in order to achieve our best.
