A Garden Party with the “Queen”

To start our Bright Lights Big City topic, the children designed and made their own sandwiches to attend a royal Garden Party. We cut the crusts off our sandwiches of course and drank juice from teacups and saucers wearing our smartest clothes.

How does a plant grow? 

In science, the children have learnt about the different parts of a plant and their role in helping the flower to grow. They have been busily preparing the beds in the garden and planting flower and vegetable seeds.

Growing Plants

Beech Class (Year 1) worked with Cedar Class (Year 5) to try to make the best bubbles. They worked together to use lots of different resources to make bubbles - refining and adapting their designs as a result of testing.  A lot of fun was had by all and some truly amazing bubbles created. 

We took part in a Victorian Toys workshop and enjoyed learning about (and playing with) the types of toys with which Victorian children would have played.

We walked up into Staplegrove village to see the old schoolhouse for ourselves. We also popped into St. John's Church to see Rev. Paul and asked him questions about the Bible.

The History of Staplegrove Church School

Mrs Morris visited us to tell us about when our school opened in 1985. She was in Year 6 and told us all about her memories including PE, school dinners and the nit nurse! She told us that before our school opened, she went to the old school which is next to the church.

To begin our English unit on 'The Papaya that Spoke', we used our senses to investigate a papaya.
