Rainbow Paper Chains

May 21, 2020

Today we ended our celebration of kindness by making rainbow paper chains with words of kindness and then we created long distance hugs for family or friends we are missing at the moment.

Kindness Activities

May 21, 2020

As part of kindness week, we discussed ways that we have shown kindness to each other over recent weeks either at home, in school or by helping others in society. We made clay bowls with a leaf print decoration and added messages to cards to go inside them. After that we all contributed messages to heart shaped leafs and added them to create a group kindness tree to remind ourselves of these important values.

Bags of Kindness

May 20, 2020

As part of our Kindness week the KS 2 children made bags to give to someone who needed one and they had to think carefully about who they would give it to an why. The bag contained a cup of tea ( tea bag), coffee or hot chocolate (sachet), a 'helping hand' and a biscuit decorated with a hearts, a rainbow or a smile. Hygiene was of paramount importance  so we washed our hands, the tables and utensils as needed throughout this activity. The biggest challenges were spreading skills, resisting the temptation to eat the sweets or lick buttercream off our fingers and, once masterpieces were completed, having to give them away for someone else to eat! However if  we met that challenge, we were then allowed to decorate another one and eat it, showing kindness to ourselves - a rewarding treat! Why not try making a kindness bag to give to someone to make them smile- the making is just as much fun as the giving!

School Garden

May 14, 2020

We had lots of fun in the sunshine yesterday planting in our school garden. In March, we sowed lots of seed that have now grown into plants and were ready to be planted outside.  We filled up the planters with fresh compost and then carefully planted lots of different vegetables and flowers including: runner beans, cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn, peppers, red onions, white onions, potatoes, chives, lavender, lobelia and petunias. Afterwards, we watered the plants and some of the children also enjoyed watering themselves as it was a lovely warm afternoon! There is still one planter left that we are going to sprinkle some more flower seeds in to hopefully attract some bees into the garden.

NHS Thank You T Shirts

May 13, 2020

Following the success of VE Day Bandanas using fabric pens  last week, we decided to build on those skills and design T-Shirts in support of the NHS. We listened to Michael Rosen's  poem 'Helping Hands',  researched existing ideas on line, designed on paper and then tackled stretchy ( 'Bandanas were much easier than this!' was the cry) fabric, with  the added pressure of only having one chance to get it right! Some of our errors have been  disguised using clever thinking and teamwork. We think we have done the NHS proud, learnt new skills along the way and have the possible beginnings of a new clothing business  'Springdale Supplies' ! Look out for our designs- they will hopefully be modeled every Thursday at 8pm. If not then please view our gallery. 

VE Day Celebration

May 06, 2020

As part of our preparations for VE Day celebrations, we designed 1940's clothing accessories with a modern twist. The head scarves worn by our nan or great nan became bandanas, face masks or neckerchiefs! Our designs celebrated the end of the war in 1945 but also represent the war against the Coronavirus that we hope soon to win. History in action! Here are some examples.

Posters

April 29, 2020

In preparation for VE day next week, we made tea-stained recruitment posters.
