Planet Earth – Intrepid Explorers – experience day

We arrived back to Earth from space, and have been exploring planet Earth. Last week, the children came to school dressed up as an intrepid explorer. In assembly, we learnt about the 7 different continents on planet Earth. We discussed how we were going to focus on 4 continents (as we only had 4 teachers) – Asia, Africa, the Poles and America. The children then experienced some African dance with Miss Peter to warm us up for the day ahead.

Miss Peter – Africa – the children had great fun learning about Africa – Dancing to African music and drumming to African music too

Miss Horrell – America – the children had great fun baking, tasting and eating American foods; making badges and flags too

Mr Huxtable – the Poles – the children had great fun experimenting with balloon cars

Mrs Lake  – Asia – the children had great fun drawing and building famous buildings from countries in Asia; and mark making letters and words in Chinese and Japanese.

The children thoroughly enjoyed their intrepid explorers ration boxes at lunch time. Thank you to the kitchen staff and lunch time staff for an extra special themed lunch too!! A great success!

All staff and children had a great day experiencing aspects of learning from the different continents and their countries on planet Earth.

 

Race to Space celebration assembly

In case you missed this…

What a way to start the term with our pop-up cafe and Race to Space celebration assembly!!

The children had been busy learning about Race to Space; and were set a series of challenging Space activities that they could choose from to complete from at home.

All of the Bish Nym team we’re amazed by the effort, enthusiasm, creativity and factual documents and artefacts that were brought into school to show off your learning. They blew us away!! Well done everyone.

We all enjoyed a nice cuppa during the exhibition, and loved celebrating the children’s achievements too!

Thank you to the kitchen staff for another amazing meal and to support staff for organising this amazing event again. What a lovely time we had too!
