What a busy week we have had here at Allerton C of E Primary school! We have had a wide range of activities happening from Sport’s day to transition morning and this afternoon’s lesson was a great time for reflection and a bit of mindfulness as we near the end of the week!
What an exciting day we have had at the countryside live day at the Great Yorkshire Showground! We have been learning about animals, farming, sustainability and much more at this exciting event.
The day kicked off with the sheep show, which was both very eye opening as well as entertaining, as we got to see a sheep get sheared as well as them busting a few moves for us at the end. We then walked over the countryside arena where we saw a sheep dog in action. This was really quite something.
For the rest of the day we split off into our smaller groups to try an array of different activities including potato growing, making rag rugs, rivers and landscapes, wood science, recycling, pet education and more!
On Tuesday, it was ACE’s turn to celebrate the the Queen’s platinum jubilee. For this historic event, we had a whole school picnic on the field with a range of activities to take part in. Not only did all the children have a lovely picnic on the grass, but they had the opportunity to take part in tug-of-war, skipping, nature collages, outdoor reading, cricket and more!
It was a very memorable occasion and 4K would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff involved in the big event, especially the lunchtime staff for preparing all the lunches, the site team for organising the chairs, tables and decorations and the parent helpers who came along to help with serving drinks.
This term we have been exploring the celebration of Pentecost. What is it and what is means to Christians. To begin this topic we thought about the Feast of Pentecost and how this spread the messages of God around the world.
For those who are not familiar with Penetcost, this is when it is celebrated:
The Christian holiday of Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day from Easter Sunday. It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles.
As part of this unit, the children have been looking at Pentecost artwork and are now in the process of designing some of their own based on some the symbols we have found within this unit.
4K have been producing fabulous pieces of work all year round and we were really excited when we found out we would be publishing their most recent piece of work. To finish off our ‘Blue Planet’ writing unit, 4K produced a fabulous information text about a made up sea creature. 4K showed off their imaginations when creating their own sea creature on Pic Collage and coming up with some fabulous facts about the creatures’ appearance, habitats, diet and behaviour. After writing their final piece, we spent some time editing and perfecting our work. Finally, we wrote up our piece in neat and created a double page spread filled with colour and wonderful diagrams. Check out the final product below. Here you can see the work of Shangen, Achilles, Fahad, Jasdeep and Ivy:
