Ash Wednesday

Today Reverend Jonah did a special Ash Wednesday assembly.

He told us how he makes the special ash used in the Ash Wednesday service. Some children even had an ash cross drawn on their foreheads.

Now Lent has begun, we are looking forward to Easter.

Aliens?

You may have heard that last week some very strange things were happening at Twyford St Mary’s…

Beech and Oak Classes have been investigating the evidence, and it seems to us that we may have been visited by yellow aliens. (We know they are yellow because they left some yellow slime behind.)

Our suspicions were confirmed when we received an message from the aliens who explained that they had accidentally landed in the KS1 playground. They have asked us to teach them about human beings and living creatures on Earth. Luckily for them, we are a very helpful bunch!

Poetry in Year 1 and 2

In Years 1 and 2 we have been learning about poetry.

We have been performing poems using expression and actions.

We have also had lots of fun exploring how different adjectives and verbs can change a poem.

We have also written our very own leaf calligrams using similes.

Next time you visit our classroom, come and have a look at our fantastic poetry tree!

Sports Day!

On Friday the teams of Finches, Hazeley, Bourne and Manor took to the field for our annual Sports Day!

The children demonstrated excellent sportsmanship, as well as courage (especially for some of those high hurdles!) and lots of joy. A big thank you to our very responsible Year 6s who were able to lead and score in their teams.

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Sports Day possible.

Afterwards, we had a whole school celebration in the hall.

Oak Class Trip to Milestones

P1020069As part of our ‘Toys’ topic, Oak Class went on a trip to Milestones Living Museum.

We took part in several workshops which involved looking at artefacts from the past.

After lunch we had some free time in the museum.

The children say their favourite part was the Victorian arcade and dressing up.photo

Portchester Castle

Oak Class braved the weather on Monday to visit Portchester Castle!

P1010817We learnt about how the castle was built by the Romans and added to by lots of different people over the years.

P1010819P1010828We were shown around the castle by Lady Mary, who helped us dress up in costumes. Some people were royalty or guards, while the rest of us were peasants!

It was a very exciting day and we were really glad to visit a real castle.

Fire Service Visit Beech and Oak

Beech and Oak Class were visited by the fire service.

We were very excited to go in the fire engine.

P1010729

Some of us even had a go at driving it!

We learnt all about fire safety and what to do if a fire starts at home or in school. Beech Class are learning about the Great Fire of London and they found out about the different ways that fires are dealt with now compared to in the past.
