We have had a super week in RH and we can’t quite believe it’s the end of term already.

Easter

We have talked about the changing seasons and how our environment will start to change now that Spring is around the corner. We have also talked about the Easter story and have made Easter cards as well as a chocolate Easter nest. Before making the nests, we completed an experiment to see how long it would take the children to melt a piece of chocolate in their hands. There were lots of sticky hands! The children were able to describe the process of the chocolate melting as it first became sticky, then it started to melt and become more of a liquid.

Story Competition

We have continued our learning about owls this week and have re-read the story ‘Owl babies’. As the children are now familiar with this story, we retold the story and discussed what happens at the beginning, the middle and the end of the story. This then prompted the children to write their own stories, so we held a story competition this week – the winners will be announced after the Easter holidays.

All the stories that the children have written are on display in the classroom so please do come and have a read. They have done a great job.

RAF 100 Event

Please click here for a link to Mr Harris’s blog which explains how the school has taken part in this event.

All the children contributed to the event by designing a paper aeroplane and writing the names of  the 4805 members of the RAF who lost their lives during the First World War and are buried across the UK.

Esme’s plane had the name of a WW1 RAF pilot from Farsley who died in training, Captain Charles Butler so she accompanied some of the older children for a service at St John’s church in Farsley.

Keep an eye out on Look North this evening and you may spot her!

Well done to all the children who entered the Decorated Egg Competition. Congratulations to our winner, Annie.
