Top Tips For Reading At Home

On Friday, Team Country had a toy day linked with our Topic - How have games changed? They used their experience to think about the materials the toys are made with, how have they changed throughout the years and how they are different between their peers. 

Team country experienced playing board games throughout the ages. They learned new rules and strategies to the games and identified similarities and differences between the games they would normally play at home. The children wondered about why games have developed and why people today still choose to play games founded in the past.

Step 3 - designing our banner to attract our customers!

Step 2 - making our game! The children have been problem solving in order to make a working game.

Y3 and 4 are having an enterprise week. They have been designing a game stall for parents and children to play in business teams. Step 1 - discussing a business idea!

The second part of the Bulwell Arts Festival was to have an art afternoon creating collage pieces around our class poem! We had a lovely afternoon getting messy.

Team Country are taking part in Bulwell Arts Festival, because of this Team Country had a story teller in. They heard lots of interesting stories and discussed how the stories made them feel. We had a great morning!

Team Country went back in time to a Victorian classroom to understand why schools and towns have had to develop.

The class went on camp! Team country really did themselves proud and we all had heaps of fun making friendship bracelets, playing games, building towers and setting up their tents. The class made some great memories together and I know the staffs highlight from the trip was finding Rilan making himself comfy in Miss Urbacz's bed and going to sleep when we got home! :) The photos above really capture how much fun the children had!

On the 21st, Team Country have been supporting the awareness of World Down syndrome Day!

Ice skating - Team country have made us all proud with their ice skating skills. Maybe we have the next Torvil and Dean.

Team country have been observing insects - thank you to Annatiaga for bringing in her insect collection.

The caterpillars have turned into their chrysalis. It will not be long till they metamorphosise into beautiful butterflies!

Our caterpillars are growing - next stop chrysalis!

We have had a new visitor arrive in Team Country this week - creepy, crawly caterpillars!
