03.03.20 Gardening Club
After a big garden tidy, we all planted narcissus daffodils and primroses into hanging baskets and pots. We also planted sunflower and wildflower seeds too. We definitely brought some spring cheer to the courtyard!
Cookery Club 24.2.20:
Mrs Savoury and her super cooks have been busy writing their very own recipes for their cook books this evening. Next week they will be making a Greatwood firm favourite 'rocky road!' Come back and have a look next week at our delicious creations!
Our 31 Choir members, Mrs Finch, Miss Johnson and Mrs Yeoman spent the day at the MEN arena on the 29th January. We sang along with 8000 other children, Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet) The Shires and Ruti (winner of The Voice.)
Being part of Young Voices gives our children confidence, self esteem and develops many Personal and Social skills.
The afternoon of rehearsals was very fast paced and our conductor David Lawrence was very impressed with the standard of singing.
This year many of our parents and families were part of the audience, they could not believe how fantastic the performance was.
Young Voices, we will definitely be back in 2021!
Our KS2 First Aiders have all achieved the Level 1 School First Aid certificate. They now know how to respond to:
An asthma attack,
Bleeding and can deal with a wasp/bee sting.
They are confident in Administering CPR, bandaging a patient and can put a patient into the recovery position.
Outdoor Craft Club - Christmas Wreaths
Using foraged moss, we wrapped it around a wreath ring and tied with garden twine. Everyone then chose different foliage to add to their wreaths. The children were very proud of their creations to decorate their homes with.
Outdoor Craft Club - Christmas Trees
Everyone foraged for different sized twigs and sticks and laid them out to create a Christmas tree in a ladder formation. They then tied them together with string so they could be hung up. Christmas decorations were then added to the trees.
Outdoor Craft Club - Spider Webs
First everyone foraged for some good sized twigs and sticks. They then held them together whilst winding round string to create different spider webs.
22.10.19 Outdoor Craft Club - Conker Creatures
Everyone designed their own mini creatures by foraging for conkers, painting them different colours and adding googly eyes.
15.10.19 Outdoor Craft Club - Nature Colour Hunt
In after school club this week, we went on a nature colour hunt around the school fields. We tried to find colours in the leaves, flowers and fruit to match the colours on our sheet. We founds lots of amazing autumnal colours!
Click on the link below, it will take you to the tracks, dance moves and lyrics of the songs that we have been learning so that you can practice at home.
08.10.19 Outdoor Crafts Club
The children foraged for lots of small sticks and a big leaf to use for a sail. Using old bike inner tubes, we cut off little rings of tubing to attach our sticks together into a raft shape. The children then added a mast and their leaf sail.
There was lots of trial and error when the children realised their boat didn't float, they changed the length of their rafts and masts to ensure their boat floated away.
01.10.19 Outdoor Crafts Club
We started today by foraging in the school field for the perfect stick to make our wands. Again, the rain was torrential so we decorated our wands inside with ribbons, glitter and other crafty bits. The children enjoyed creating different spells with their new wands.
This evening we started to learn two songs from the Young Voices 2020 programme.
We started with the Pop Medley that includes Jess Glynn, George Ezra, Years and Years and Panic at the Disco.
We then finished the session by learning the dance moves to the Frightfest medley that includes ‘Monster Mash’ ‘Is it a Monster’ and ‘Little Shop of Horrors.’
24.09.19 Outdoor Craft Club
We first went foraging in the school field, looking for outdoor inspiration for our Boggart faces. Boggarts are little spirits that live in the woods, they can be made from clay and stuck to trees to create little outdoor faces. As the rain was torrential, we foraged and then made our faces inside.

FIRST AID CLUB
This evening in First Aid Club we focussed on 'Asthma.'
We can now identify what Asthma is, what an Asthma attack looks like and how as First Aiders we can help.
We used our best 'role play' efforts to re-enact an Asthma attack, dealing with the situation as the First Aider on Scene, dialling for an Ambulance and ensuring that we can direct an ambulance to school or our home effectively.
We are working towards gaining a certification in First Aid.
You can sign up for any of the following during the Summer term:
Fair Trade Club,
Fun and Games and many, many more...
We have now renamed our club ‘Knit and Natter club!’ Our knitters have been busy at home practising their skills since last Tuesday.
This week we continued to knit the basic stitch. Izzy informed us all that she was ‘knitting a blanket for her new hamster!’ Florence was worried ‘the hamster might nibble through it!’
Next week we are hoping to introduce some brighter colours to our knitting.
KNITTING CLUB WEEK
Tonight we learnt how to hold our needles, Mrs Yeoman used the visualiser to demonstrate how to knit.
