AUTUMN TERM

Here are some of the exciting things we have been doing this term.

ACTIVE MATHS

We have been using an active approach during our mathematics sessions to try and improve our concentration and fitness levels.

MATHS ORIENTEERING

To recap on the arithmetic skills taught this term, we did some orienteering at consolidate these skills. Pupils really enjoyed done this.

ODYSSEUS DRAMA WORK

Part of our literacy this term has been focusing on the Adventures of Odysseus. Pupils have written their own play scripts and acted out the battle with the Cyclops.

GYMNASTICS ROUTINE

In our P.E sessions, pupils have been devising a routine to Natural Blues by Moby. They had to consider incorporating a minimum of three balances, bridges, rolls and jumps, as well as thinking about the transitions between each of the balances etc. Some very successful routines were created, displaying excellent gymnastics prowess.

ZORBA DANCING

In conjunction with our Ancient Greece topic, Helen Sadler, a local dance teacher, came into school to work with Poplar Class to teach the pupils Zorba dancing. It was extremely challenging due to the complexity and fast pace, however, the pupils enjoyed participating and will perform the dance to parents later in the term.

REMEMBRANCE SERVICE

Pupils in Y5 and Y6 attended a remembrance service at the Cenotaph on Cleethorpes Seafront in memory of all of the people who have lost their lives in the various wars. The Reverend Hunter from St.Peter's Church lead the tributes and pupils from Thrunscoe also laid a wreath.

WELLBEING ACTIVITY

As we are working towards the Schools Wellbeing Award, periodically all classes have a half hour wellbeing slot where various activites are completed. Poplar Class had an active session involving the parachute out on the school field.

MAKING GIFTS FOR THE CHRISTMAS BAZAAR

Poplar Class have been making Christmas coasters and Melted Snowman biscuits. Instructions have also been written for making the coasters as part of our literacy sessions.
