Little Owl Farm Park

We had a lovely day at Little Owl Farm Park last Friday. Luckily the sun shone for us all day. We enjoyed walking round the different animals, petting some small animals and going on a tractor ride. We also had an ice cream in the afternoon!

Have a look below for some photos of our lovely day!

Summer Indigenous Interlude

What an amazing couple of concerts the  school put on this week! Our whole school concert was themed around the topics we have all been studying this term. We had songs, drumming and dances from Australia, Africa, The Rain forests, North and South America, Scandinavia  and Great Britain. The children all performed with the musical instruments they had and designed created themselves during DT Music week.

Everyone had really worked hard to put the show together and both events were wonderful. We even had a surprise performance from all the staff, who played steel drums and danced The Mac arena.

Thank you to everyone who came to support us and help on the afternoon and evening. The children were wonderful as always, making us very proud. Well Done!

Sports Day 2018

What a fantastic morning of sports it was! The weather was perfect and the children competed sportingly in their races.

The children competed for their houses in the flat race, egg and spoon race, sack race, dressing up race, beanbag race and finished with the house relay and Ombersley Marathon.

After our young visitor’s race and Mum’s and Dad’s sack race all the points were added up and the winners announced. Ruby house were the winners!

Afterwards all the children joined their parents for a picnic. It was the perfect end to a perfect morning.

Thank you to all the parents who came and supported and helped out doing the many jobs.

Cluster Sports 2018

On a gloriously hot, sunny, Friday morning Ombersley competed against Tibberton and Hindlip First schools in the annual Cluster Sports Day.

Gazebos were set up so we didn’t get too hot and with suncream applied, water bottles filled up and sun hats on the competition began. The children took part in the flat race, egg and spoon race, sack race and skipping race before the interval. The scores were announced after the break and Ombersley were narrowly ahead.

It was all to play for  after the break. The children then competed in the dressing up race, beanbag race and school relay with a grand finale of The Ombersley Marathon. The Ombersley children were very impressive in this event and won both the girls and boys races.

When the points were added up the final result was Ombersley 1st, Hindlip 2nd and Tibberton 3rd.

Well done to all the children who competed in events, the children who supported and cheered everyone on and all the helpers. Thank you. It was a wonderful event. 

Drumlove

As part of our DT Music week, we enjoyed a day with Drumlove. We had a fantastic day drumming with Pat and Steve.

They worked with every class in the school throughout the day, teaching us all a different drum beat. At the end of the day years 2, 3 and 4 performed what they had learnt to the rest of the school and parents.

 

Summer Fun


We’ve had a beautiful sunny couple of week in Reception. We’ve been making paper mache musical instruments for our music festival, enjoyed learning to drum with our Drum Love visitors and competing in Cluster Sports today. 

We’ve got a busy last few weeks in Reception before we move onto Year 1. Let’s hope for lots more sunny days!

Summer fun!

We have had a busy couple of weeks since half term. We visited the Ombersley church and enjoyed learning about the different parts of the church. We walked around the churchyard too and saw where the old church used to stand.

This week we have been very sporty! We had our first yoga session with Mrs Rusby and she was very impressed with how well we listened and how much everyone challenged themselves to learn the postures. Yesterday we went to the Early Years Sports Festival at St. Peter’s school. We had been practising the different races and we enjoyed competing against the other schools. Everyone tried their best and behaviour was excellent too!

Voices and Visions 2018

Before the holidays each class worked together to produce a piece of art work for the Voices and Visions exhibition, at Worcester Cathedral. The theme this year was ‘Acts of Kindness’. The exhibition celebrates the creativity of children and young people in the county.

Our work has been displayed beautifully with works of art from other local schools.

Have a look! Why don’t you go and visit the exhibition. It is well worth a visit. You can see the display in The Cloisters and it runs until June 17th.

The Royal Wedding

In Reception we have been learning about the Royal Wedding. We have enjoyed playing in our role play, making crowns and learning about wedding traditions around the world. We also had lots of different wedding photos to look at and we had to guess which teacher was who in their weddings!

We also had our own royal picnic on the last day but unfortunately due to the weather we had to have it indoors instead. Everyone looked fantastic in their party clothes and fingers crossed for better weather this half term!

This half term we will be spending lots of time outside and finishing off our Early Years curriculum before we begin to think about our transition to Year 1. I hope everyone has had a well deserved half term break and is ready for our last Reception half term ahead. We’ve got lots to look forward to with music and sports festivals and an end of year trip planned too!

A busy week!

We’ve been outdoors most of this week! We started with the Bluebell Walk on Wednesday. Then we went worm hunting on the school field. Today we had our skipping visitors and we really enjoyed learning some new skills. We will have to practise them with our new skipping ropes.

Have a well deserved rest this weekend Reception class!

 

Minibeasts

Since Easter we have been learning all about Minibeasts. We started with the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. We have been enjoying learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and making our own symmetrical butterflies. We have also written our own stories based on our book which make for fantastic reading!

We have also planted our class bed with different vegetables and we are looking forward to watching our sunflowers grow too! We are now moving on to learning about minibeasts and different environments. Hopefully the sun will start shining soon too!
