‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Spring Term

Lions Class Train Trip

This week we have been on our trip to Collingham Park. We travelled by minibus to the train station and boarded the train- we even got a shoutout from the train driver over the tannoid! The children loved sitting on the train and spotting different animals in the fields out of the window. We then walked to Collingham park where we had lots of fun on all of the equipment. The fast slide was definitely a favourite! We had a picnic in the sunshine and a bit more of a play before walking back to the train station and travelling back to school. It was a fantastic day and the children loved experiencing two different types of transport. Well done Lions!

World Book Day in Lions Class

Lions have loved taking part in World Book Day. We read the book 'The Barnabus Project' and talked about how it is important that we are all different. We created our own class pet, a 'Cata-Lion', and all took part in making a collage of how it looked at the beginning of the story. All of the children were able to choose materials, rip, tear and cut them before placing them onto the collage. It looks fantastic! We also had lots of other activities in the classroom linking to creating their own imperfect pets. The children had lots of fun!

Family Tuesday in Lions Class

Lions really enjoyed having their grown-ups in the classroom to read with us all. Lots of siblings got involved too! Then the children all came to the carpet to listen to a class story - Monkey Puzzle. The children loved joining in and guessing which animal would be next. 

Lions Science Experiment

This week in Lions we have been investigating which materials are waterproof. We read the book 'Mr Gumpy's Motor Car' and challenged ourselves to find which material would make a great umbrella to keep Mr Gumpy and his friends dry. In groups we did an experiment using different materials to see which were waterproof. Lions class found rubber and plastic are fantastic materials for an umbrella. Well done Lions!
