We had a FANTASTIC time at the picnic today. We ate together and played together and enjoyed the sunshine, it was fun!
Thank you to the lunch staff for making our lovely lunches and giving us an ice pop! We were very lucky!
Also, a big thank you to Little Pickles, Children's Centre, Whippersnappers and all the lovely parents who joined us. We hope you had fun at the picnic!
Science and Engineering Challenge at King's School
On Saturday 25th March, a team of 4 pupils went to King's School to represent Picklenash in the Science and Engineering Challenge. Their challenge was to create a marble run using a range of objects provided to them but the marble had to take the longest possible time to reach the table. It was an exciting morning and I was very impressed with their collaboration, communication and team spirit.
Thank you to all the children from Glebe that came back to join us for an evening of bedtime stories on Friday! We started with a few games to tire us out. Then we had a yummy biscuit and a cup of milk. We finished with some lovely stories read by Mrs Pratley.
24th March 2017 RED NOSE DAY!
Well done to all the children (and staff) who came to school in their pyjamas. It was a very comfy day :) :)
British Science Week 2017
As part of Science Week, Glebe and Picklenash enjoyed a Science Day on Wednesday 15th March. Each class got to spend some time with Miss Bloxsome and the Science Club children, participating in exciting Science activities and in the afternoon we completed a whole school investigation.
Glebe Art Exhibition - 14th March 2017
All the children in Glebe created some lovely art work that explored different art techniques. Reception classes focused their art work around 'Daffodils' and created different pieces of work. Some children used iPads to create edited photographs of daffodils, some did collage work or used oil pastels and some children used ink wash.
In years 1 and 2, the children focused on 'Dawn over the Lake' and created beautiful mirrored work and wrote fantastic poems. Well done everyone!
Some of the children's art work is being judged in an Art Competition. We will post on the website when we know the winners and runners up.
Year 1 and 2 have a visit from the Wilson Museum!
On Tuesday 21st February, The Wilson Museum came to tell as all about the famous explorer Edward Wilson because
this term our topic is 'Into the Great Unknown'. Sophie and Bethany told us lots of information about Edward Wilson and then we did a workshop in our classes. We got to draw stuffed animals, this was because Wilson's favourite hobby was drawing animals and he also liked to stuff them! We got to play with old toys and we also had lots of fun dressing up in some of the clothes they would have worn during the expeditions in Antarctica. We are excited to learn more about explorers now!
Once Upon a Crime!
The children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, put on a wonderful Christmas production, telling the tale of the Fairy Tale Police Department (FTPD) as they investigate a variety of crimes within the fairy tale kingdom. The children worked hard to learn, dances, songs, lines and comedic timing! All the staff are very proud of the children and the effort they put in to make our show a success!
Year 1 and 2 at the Dean Heritage Centre!
On Wednesday 13th April, Year 1 and 2 had an exciting trip to the Dean Heritage Centre. We had lots of fun activities planned! The Year 1's enjoyed a nature walk, finding out about different trees and shelter building. The Year 2's enjoyed learning about habitats and micro-habitats (we found lots of mini-beasts!), the different types of trees and how to identify them and finally we dissected a bluebell! We also all enjoyed a play on the play area! Here are a few pictures from our trip but look out for more in Glebe Reception!
World Book Day! 3.3.2016
The Infants enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters for World Book Day. We had a range of activities planned based on our love of reading as school. The children brought in their favourite book to write about- look out for these around the school! The book swap was also a great success again so thank you parents and children for supporting it.
Look closely to see if you can spot any interesting characters!
Year 1 and 2's Teddy Bear's Picnic- 22.2.16
Today Year 1 and 2 children enjoyed an outdoor start to their new topic 'Into the Woods'. All the teddies enjoyed their first visit to our forest school's area!
Children in Need!
The Infants raised money for Children in Need today by dressing up as 'something different'. They all looked fantastic!
Remembrance Day Service
Alisha Hughes (Y6) and Cameron Greenwold (Y2) carried out their duties at the Remembrance Service at St Mary's with great respect and pride. They were true ambassadors for our schools.
On a Friday afternoon, Year 2 have had the responsibility of being a reading buddy! Each Year 2 child has been able to choose a book to share with a child in Reception. As the weather has been lovely, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the stories. We have had lots of fun sharing our favourite books!
