Otters Trampoline fun at Hadleigh High School

The Otters once again had a brilliant trampolining session at Hadleigh High School. They all really enjoyed the session that was brilliantly run by Miss Clarke. 

Thank you to Hadleigh High school for such a brilliant event and for the parents who helped transport and supervise the children with us.

Otters all performed brilliantly in the annual Christmas Nativity.

R/KS1 Phonics Cafe - November 2018

We were delighted that so many parents came to join us for the Phonics Cafe this morning and shared a number of activities with their children.

Summer Term Topic - China

To start the topic, the Otters have been very busy designing and constructing their very own Great Wall of China!

Working together to make such a wonderful creation, they then measured it using centimetres and metres.

Carrying on with our topic of China, the Otters enjoyed a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. 

They all tasted the Shanghai Gunpowder tea and nearly everyone loved it. 

We were delighted to have a Chinese Dance Workshop - we did a fan dance and got to be part of a Chinese Dragon!

Look at the different slideshows below to see what we have been doing...

Hot Cross Buns

The children in Otters class have been baking hot cross buns this week as we get closer to Easter.

They look very concentrated measuring out and mixing the ingredients and the buns look (and tasted) delicious!

LS Lowry Artwork

The children in Otters class have been learning about the artist LS Lowry and took the opportunity to create their own Industrial Landscapes that they presented in Family Assembly in February.

Here are the children with their fantastic artwork:

Outdoor Learning

After such a long winter, when the sun came out, the Otters took the opportunity to enjoy some outdoor learning!

Science Cafe 2018

We had a fantastic turnout of 31 parents for the Science Cafe this term. All enjoyed activities from light boxes, balloon rockets, space models, bug hotels and investigating poo! It was superb to share  with you all. Thank you for all your support.

Art - Wassily Kandinsky

The Otters have really enjoyed learning about the Abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky today.

They have mixed primary colours to make secondary colours with tints and shades and are creating their own Kandinsky inspired artwork!

Otters have produced a collage of a bridge in Hadleigh in the style of Claude Monet.
