Science Week at the Hive

We went to the Hive to listen to a science session by the Royal Institution . We found out about scientists who had discovered electricity and took part in activities. We especially like Barbies hair raising by static electricity and the big BANG finale which Jaden helped with.

Book Week 2019

Eco council organised and helped the ‘Book Swap’ at lunchtime. We hope everyone enjoyed their new book.

Golf

KS2 are playing golf this half term. We have been practising on the playground – so far we have used 2 different types of clubs and learnt lots of new terms.

Pancake Races

On Shrove Tuesday we had pancake races at the end of the day. Some of us were very competitive!

Book Week

The focus for Book Week has been poetry. We have been learning a poem for our assembly next week about Dragons and the environment. We have been writing our own poetry and making artwork to accompany the poetry. On Monday our parents came in to share stories and poems with us.On Thursday -World Book day we wore our PJ’s and slippers and brought in our favourite books. We shared them with other classes during the day – we enjoyed going down to the Nursery and reading to the younger children. We had hot chocolate and marshmallows at the end of the day.

 

Birmingham Museum and Art gallery

We visited BMAG to visit the Egyptian gallery of the museum and take part in workshops about Ancient Egypt. We re-enacted an Ancient Egyptian funeral of a pharaoh. It was a bit gruesome pulling out his internal organs and putting them in canopic jars, then Jacob had to pull his brain out!! We found bandaging him up a bit tricky and then we had to decide if his heart was heavier than a feather. We held an original death masks from Egyptian times. Our second workshop was painting a picture on a piece of papyrus with inks – they looked really good. In the afternoon we visited the Egyptian gallery and saw some real mummies, and lots artefacts. We also had time to make a quick visit to the Staffordshire Hoard and the art gallery. It was a very informative day.

 

Egyptian artefacts

We have been making  Egyptian artefacts read for our Egyptian museum. We have designed and made funeral masks and used clay to make scarab beetles.

Book Week in Year 2

We loved Book Week!

The theme for this year’s Book Week, at Ombersley,  was Performance Poetry and our poem was The Owl and the Pussycat. We have learnt it off by heart and done lots of lovely activities to do with the poem. We have even had a go at writing our poems, which we are looking forward to sharing with you in our Class assembly.

On Monday our parents came to share a story with us, on Tuesday we brought a book to school to swap and on Thursday, World Book day, we came to school in our PJs and slippers with our teddies and our favourite book to share with children from another class. We loved this, especially the hot chocolate and Marshmallows that we had later. And on Friday we bought our competition entries into school for a ‘Design a Poetry chair’competition. Well done Harvey and Finley who were the Key Stage 1 winners. We can’t wait to see what the chair will look like. 

 

Cross Country Competition

The children had an exhausting morning at Wychbold First School competing against some strong competition, in the Droitwich Schools’ Cross Country competition, at Wychbold First school. Fortunately the rain stayed away and the race could go ahead!

There were some great performances from Agatha 2nd, Daisy 9th and Holly 10th in the Girls’ race and Jaden 3rd, Matthew 8th and Toby 9th in the Boys’ race.

Well done to Sebastian, Daisy, Holly, Jaden, Matthew, Kara, Joseph, Rose, Sam, Agatha, Toby, Archie, Jogiya, Mia and Alfie. 

 

New Outdoor Garden

We love our fantastic new year 1 only garden. We have been doing lots of exploring and learning outside and we love it.

Forest fun

We spend lots of time outside and in the forest. On our first week back we went out to look for signs of spring and had a bug hunt. We discovered lots more bugs come out in spring compared to winter.
