Garden for the Games!

Year 3 and 4 have all had a go at ‘Gardening for the Olympic Games’.

Everybody has designed their own Olympic garden and lots of the children were able to get dirty, planting flowers into old tyres (we like to re-use). The tyres have become the five Olympic rings and carefully selected flowers, that match the colours of the famous rings, were placed into the appropriate tyre.

Mrs Kind’s class started the garden by arranging the tyres and digging.
Mrs Kinch’s class carried on with this task and helped to plant the white strawberries in the ‘green’ ring.
Mrs Cotton’s class filled up some tyres and planted more flowers and finally…
Miss Jopling’s class finished planting the flowers, topped up the soil and watered the garden.

Thank you everyone for a great team effort!

If you would like to see the Olympic garden for yourself, you will find it by the Year 3a, 3b and 4b entrance door, by Mrs Kind’s classroom window.

Burning of our Viking Long Boat

As part of our history topic we have been learning about the Vikings and have constructed a Viking longboat. We have all really enjoyed this topic and were very excited at the proposal of finishing it by celebrating in true Viking style. We did this by burning the longboat as if a Viking warrior had died in battle.
