Whole School Sponsored Run For Our Sensory Garden

The sun shone as the children, families and friends ran, walked and skipped their way to completing their target (and beyond) laps in aid of our sensory garden.

DO NOT DISTURB – mathematicians at work!

Measuring and calculating in cm and mm

Are shadows clearer the closer to the screen?

We tried out our theories with a shadow puppet theatre

We have been investigating light and shadows

We had four different concepts to investigate

Magical Moments

On Friday afternoon Holly class enjoyed singing a million dreams from The Greatest Showman as part of their music lesson.   We were fortunate to have Anya a student from Loughborough High School playing the piano which the children really enjoyed.

Work has started!

Work in the sensory garden has started thanks to Mr Mould, parents, representatives from our local Santander branch and of course the children.

Over the last week, the children in Sycamore class have planted a headgerow donated by Carbon Footprint and The Sensory Committee have planted and weaved the willow structures. Well done all.

During the Easter holidays members of the Melton Lions, led by David, will be building planters.

 

Thank you all for all your amazing support.

 

 

Mental Wellbeing and Mindfulness – an afternoon of taster sessions.

Last week every child at school tried a strategy that would increase their mental well-being. Lots of fun was had, but more importantly, children can now make a more informed decision about how they can keep their whole body – which includes their mind – healthy.

Doodling, listening to music, sand therapy, taekwondo, yoga, walking, reading and gardening were a few of the activities the children tried.

Strider came to school

What a surprise we had when we got to school on Monday.  Strider was waiting for us! Some of us were lucky enough to have our photographs taken with him.  Later on, Strider’s friend Jim gave us lots more information about the Wow Travel Tracker scheme.

Holly class are ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’

To help raise money for the Red Nose Day appeal we all donated a ‘fine’ so that we could come to school in our own clothes rather than our school uniform. We either chose rainbow coloured clothes or came dressed in just one colour from the rainbow. We were very pleased with the amount of money our class raised. It was also a day for telling jokes. We had some really good ones.

Changing the shape of materials

We had a lot of fun trying to find as many different ways as we possibly could to change the shape of our piece of paper. We were amazed by the number we found between us. Here are just a few of them.
