Bluebell walk

Today, we went on our annual bluebell walk. We had a lovely walk through the cornfield, before arriving at the bluebell wood. In the wood, we stopped to study the British wild flowers, plants and trees. We compared our English woodland to the Tropical rain forests.

We had a lovely morning; it made us realise how lucky we are to have our school so close to a beautiful English woodland walk. the weather was perfect too!

Plants investigation

In science, we have been investigating how plants and flowers drink. We set up an experiment using coloured water and stood a white carnation and a stick of celery in it to see what will happen. We have also been gardening ~ we  planted some vegetables in our vegetable garden.

Cross Country competition

Well done to all the children who represented Ombersley First school in the Droitwich pyramid Cross Country competition at Wychbold First school. You were a credit to our school. A special congratulations to Alex who came first and Daniel who came third in the Boys race. Well done Yasmin, Aggie, Evie, Oliver, Matthew, Sam, Jaden, Dylan, Alex and Daniel!

Bell boating

Year 3 and 4 had an amazing day bell boating on the Droitwich canal on Monday.

We learned lots of new skills including rowing forward and backward and steering using the paddles, we also tried rowing whilst standing up. Each boat worked together as a team. It was very hard work, but we had a wonderful day.

We went through a lock and saw swans nesting. The weather was very kind to us too! 

 

 

Rainforest Roadshow

Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic day with Rainforest Dave on Thursday.

He taught us all about the Amazon rainforest, where he had just returned from. We learnt about the plants, trees, animals and people.

We were introduced to some very exotic rainforest animals, including: a Chinese oak silk moth, a salmon pink bird eating spider, sugar gliders, a bearded dragon and a milk snake ~ which we got to hold!

Dave showed us a durian fruit, which is the orangutan’s  favourite food, the smell was very strong and not pleasant!

During the afternoon we made our own rainforest style necklaces, sketched rainforest animals and had our faces painted in the style of rainforest tribes.

It was an amazing, fun filled day, which has started our topic off with a great big WOW!

Science in Year 3

We have been learning about Light and shadows in Science. We tested which materials were transparent, translucent and opaque.

We used torches at different angles to investigate the length of shadows.

Yoga in Year 3

Year 3 have enjoyed Yoga this half term with Mrs. Rusby.

We revisited lots of yoga postures we had learnt before and lots of new ones, including some ‘Roman’ and ‘Winter Olympic’ moves.

It has been a lovely relaxing start to the Year. Thank you Mrs. Rusby.

Happy Christmas from Year 3

whole class

 

Year 3 and 4 enjoyed their party day playing pass the parcel and musical bumps.

On the last day we all dressed in our Christmas jumpers and played more games before our Christmas Nativity and Carol service in Ombersley church.

It was a lovely end to the term. We all performed beautifully and are now looking forward to a well earned break and a Wonderful Christmas ~ Well done everyone for all your hard work this term.

Have a Magical Christmas; see you in the New Year! 🙂

Pantomime

Key stage Two had a fantastic afternoon at The Palace Theatre in Redditch on Friday.

We enjoyed watching some famous faces in the pantomime Snow White. We laughed, cheered, sang and booed all afternoon.

Our teachers loved it too and were extremely proud of our behaviour.

Here are some memories to share from our visit.

Maths Week

What an amazing Maths week we had. We spent the week playing maths games, solving problems and having lots of fun.

We enjoyed writing Maths poetry in English and even created our own Advent calendar.

On Thursday our parents and Grandparents came in to play maths games with us.

We all wore clothes with numbers on Friday for a Number day.

Mrs. Osborn set us a  challenge to create the longest paper chain. We all worked together on our house teams to work out how to cut and stick our paper to get the longest chain.

Cluster Carols

Key stage One and Two had a wonderful afternoon singing carols and telling the Christmas story with Tibberton and Hindlip schools.

It was a lovely start to the festive season. The children all sang  and behaved beautifully ~ making their teachers very proud.
