Snowmen biscuits!

16 December 2020

Beech Class were feeling very festive as they decorated their biscuits…if you’re wondering why you didn’t get to see them, they didn’t last long!

Christmas scavenger hunt.

We worked in teams to find the hidden objects all around the Winter wonderland, and our school grounds.

Reindeer Rush!

Beech Class ran a mile to raise money for St. John’s Hospice wearing their fetching antlers! It’s not too late to send in a donation if you would like to contribute to our fundraising for the Hospice.

Complete with hot chocolate!

Scratch Coding

During the term, Sycamore and Beech Class have been learning to code using Scratch. Below is a link for a guide to help students and parents learn how to code over the coming festive break.

Details:

Scratch – First Steps combines colourful graphics with clear step by step instructions and is designed to get young people up and running with coding. It’s good for complete beginners as well as anyone who needs a refresher on the basics. The Guide is free to download and use anywhere, anytime you like, so just go to https://stemforstarters.com/first_steps and start coding! 

The Scratch programming language is fun and easy to use but also surprisingly powerful. It’s free, runs on most kinds of computer and supports the KS2 computing curriculum.

The Knotted Project

This year we teamed up with Dukes Theatre to create a drama piece about Christmas 2020! We had great fun!

Beech Class tried their best at the cross country competition and did very well, although some of us were exhausted by the end!
