Welcome to Chestnut Class

Dragon Days

After weeks of hard work  rehearsing  for our end of year play the evenings finally came when we performed in front of our family and friends.

Both nights were amazing in the wonderful hall at Kings Hawford School. We all acted magnificently, sang beautifully and read perfectly. It was a very proud moment for our parents and teachers. All the hard work paid off – Well done everyone!

 

Sports Day 2019

What another great Sports Day! The sun shone, the house gazebos were set up and everything was ready.

The Year 4 house captains led their houses in a mass school warm up, to start the proceedings.

There then followed running , skipping, sack, egg and spoon, beanbag and dressing up races for each of the year groups. It was great fun and very competitive.

The final races for the children were the House relay and Key Stage 2 Ombersley Marathon.

While the scores were added up our young visitors had a running race and the Mums and Dads were persuaded to do the sack race, by their children.

Finally the results were announced and Ruby house won. Well done to Ruby house, everyone who competed and all the parents who came and supported and cheered. It was a lovely morning made even better by our DJ from Kings Hawford school. Thank you. 

Cluster Sports

Ombersley had a very successful morning at the Cluster Sports 2019 taking part in different events against Hindlip First school and Tibberton First school. After a morning of exciting races all the scores were added up and Ombersley came first!

Well done to all the children who took part in events throughout the morning. There was some great support too from all the children. 

Droitwich Dance Festival

Year 3 took part in the Dance Festival at Droitwich High School. They performed their Ancient Egyptian dance in front of other Droitwich first schools. Their dance was amazing and they all made us very proud with their beautiful behaviour.

The BIG Sing

Year 3 choir members had a lovely afternoon singing with other Worcestershire schools at Worcester University Arena.

We sang the songs we have been learning and were taught some new ones too. We had lots of fun and made our teachers very proud!

Science in year 3

This term in Science we have been learning about plants. We have cleared our vegetable garden and planted seeds. To find out what plants need to grow, we kept our seeds in different places around the classroom.

We have learnt about the parts of a plant and carried out an investigation to find out how plants drink water. Our pollination lesson was fun; we got to eat cheesy puffs then dust our fingers over the plants to see how insects pollinate flowers. 

Next, we will start looking at The Human Body.

Festival of Flowers and Music

As part of the Festival of Flowers and Music, which will be taking place in St. Andrew’s Church, Ombersley from June 28th to July 5th, some of the children were chosen to take part in a flower arranging workshop.

Mrs Packer came and showed the children how to make two flower arrangements. We were very impressed with her flower arranging skills!

Hopefully, some of the children will have a go at making one of these arrangements so that we can display them in the church during the festival. We are going to be singing there too.

Tri Golf competition

Ten children from Year 3 and 4 were chosen to take part in a School Games Level 2 Tri Golf competition at Worcester Golf Range. There were six other schools there from across the Droitwich and Worcester area who had all won smaller competitions.

The children had to complete six different activities and then all the scores were added up. And we came second, narrowly missing out on first place! What an achievement for such a small school! The children were amazing and used all the skills they had learnt in their golf lessons this year. Well done! Mrs Hobbs was very proud of you all. 

Key Stage 2 Cricket

The Key Stage 2 children have enjoyed working on their cricket skills this half term, with a coach from Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

In the final session there was a house Cricket competition. It was great fun and all the children enjoyed it.

Bell Boating

What a fantastic day year 3 and 4 had today Bell Boating. We rowed all day; from Vines Park all the way to Ladywood! It was hard work, but each boat worked as a team and helped each other to keep going.

We stopped for lunch at Ladywood Lock and experienced what it is like to go through a lock.

The weather was beautiful all day too. well done everyone. Excellent collaboration! 

 

First week back

Welcome back to the final term in year 3.
The Summer term has started off with a very busy week. We learnt all about keeping safe on the road in our Road Safely lesson with Louise; we acted out different scenarios then Louise measured our height to see which of us still need a car seat.

We have also started our new topic – The Stone Age; we are reading a new story and have begun the topic by creating Stone Age Art. We carried out cave drawings just as the Stone Age people would have done, except we drew them underneath our tables instead of in a cave – it was great fun though!
