As part of our All Things Bright and Beautiful' topic, children have been looking at different amazing habitats and food chains. For homework they had to create a shoebox habitat and say why animals are suited to live there. I am so impressed with all the children's designs. They are amazing! Today's challenge was to create a brand new town that would include human features that we would need or like to have. They also needed to include areas that would promote wildlife, so that other animals can live there too. We invited Birch class to come and see the towns and the children had to present their ideas. They also come to see the children's homework. Birch class were very impressed with the

Ks1 Potted Sports

We have a great time today at Bracken Leas taking part in the cluster potted sports event. Children were put into teams with other schools in our cluster. Each time were a country and they took part in 9 different activities as part of a carousel. This was led by the fantastic MCS student. Some of the activities on offer were- Egg and spoon race, bean bag challenge and an obstacle race with skipping ropes. It was hot, but lots of fun was had by all!

Nature and Gardening Club

Today we have been bringing nature and the outside alive by giving them happy, sad and some evil faces. Children pressed clay onto a surface and then using their fingers, they shaped the face, adding natural materials for hair etc. They look awesome!

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dream Coat

Our second trip last week was to the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham to see a live production of Joseph. It was an AMAZING show with lots of fabulous acting and singing which has really inspired us. We had a wonderful time and even joined in at the end with the singing and dancing! We can't wait to put on our own production!!

Birch Class had an amazing week last week!

WOW!What a busy but fantastic week we had last week. We were luck enough to go on two trips! On Tuesday we went on our first trip was to Tesco in Banbury to link with our World Kitchen topic. We tasted cheese, fruit and bread from around the world and had to guess which country they were from...we did pretty well. After that we had to find foods from Easter Europe, the Mediterranean, India, China and Mexico. We also had great fun finding out what happens behind the scenes and were allowed into the huge fridges and freezers which are kept at -20 degrees, brrrrr!! Finally, we did a quick bit of shopping to buy the ingredients for our Exotic Fruit Cocktail that we made back in school. We bough

Making Salad

For Healthy Living Week Oak class enjoyed making a Greek salad. Children tried new foods such as olives and feta cheese.

Cotswold Wildlife Park

Oak Class had an enjoyable but soggy day at Cotswold Wildlife Park. Max got to meet his lemur friends. The children were amazingly well behaved and it was an enjoyable day.

Trip to the woods

Oak class enjoyed a morning at Newbottle woods. We identified different trees, made natural artwork and leaf rubbings.

Fruit Salad

During Active Living week, we made a fruit salad. We learnt about where different fruits come from and predicted which fruits were grown in the UK. We had a feely bag and had to guess the fruit just be touching it. We then did some observational drawings of the outside and inside before learning how to use a knife to chop the fruit safely. We then had a taste and it was yummy! Our salad included fruits we knew (kiwi, banana) and some we didn't (physalis).

Natural History Museum- At School and in London

Yesterday Ash class were learning about animals in two different ways. Some of the children went to London to visit the Natural History Museum. Some of the children were at school turning the classroom into a museum. Jemima said, " My favourite part was the earthquake because I laughed so much. It was fun!" Madeleine said, " My favourite part was making the masks. I made a fox!" Click on the title to find information about both days and see the slideshows. Some of the children went to London to visit the Natural History Museum. We met at Kings Sutton Station and travelled by train to London. We went on the tube to the museum and the children got to experience using their train tickets to get
