BURCHETTS GREEN CE INFANT SCHOOL - SCHOOL GALLERY
During April we had some very special visitors at school. These duck eggs hatched into 5 little ducklings under our care, and we spent 2 weeks watching them grow fluffier and fluffier, and becoming more active. We fed and watered them as well as cuddling them - and even gave them a bath!
We celebrated Easter by creating our very own Easter Gardens using lots of different natural resources and Easter-related materials. We shared with each other and made our gardens alongsider each other, using each other's ideas and learning from each other. We also worked with Mrs Maynard to make an Easter Cross using the daffodils we had all donated.
We had a very snowy March trip to Chessington Zoo to visit the gorillas and watch them being fed during our Gorillas topic.
We enjoyed our mums coming to join us in school to celebrate Mother's Day. We sang them some songs in assembly (there may not have been many dry eyes in the room...!) and then they relaxed during a pampering session where we painted their nails - some very creative and artistic efforts here!
In February we celebrated our Japan topic by holding a Japanese tea ceremony where we tasted different teas and ate rice cakes. We all dressed up in different Japanese costumes, from kimonos to full Samurai warrior armour!
We have enjoyed two special visitors this November.
On Friday 17th we had a visit from some reindeer (thank you FOBGS!) and we all had the chance to learn more about them, as well as having our photos taken with them. It was a good starter to the Christmas season!
We also had Olympian Richard Buck visiting the school. He told us all about him and how he got into athletics, and gave us some training to we can become medal-winning athletes like he is!
We dressed up as toys for our Toy Day and spent the day learning all about different moving toys. We made different types of puppets and performed our own moving doll dance to our parents!
Our first topic this term is Journeys which we have linked to a global theme this year, with a whole International Week. We all dressed up in outfits and costumes from different countries around the world - we even tried typical food from all the different countries!
We had a special music visitor who taught us all about music from around the world.
Tawny Owls tried out some African instruments and learnt about rhythm.
Barn Owls found out all about Hawaiian music and had a go at some hula dancing.
The Snowy Owls practised a dragon dance and learnt all about some of the animals that are special in China.
We had a great day and felt as if we'd been all around the world!
We welcomed our Dads and Lads into school for Den Day on Monday 19th June - we all had a fantastic day in the sun building dens out of different resources. Our visitors came with great plans and designs for some fabulous dens and we some great teamwork as everyone worked together to come up with these masterpieces!
The whole school decided to Walk4Wildlife on Friday 19th May as part of a nation-wide initiative to break the Guinness World Record for a mass sponsored walk.We raised money for the Harper Asprey charity, who had visited us to give an assembly about the work they do protecting and looking after hedgehogs.
We have loved having two lambs as our resident pets this term.
We have been feeding and looking after them, and they have enjoyed roaming round the school grounds and joining in with our learning and play!
Barn Owls made some delicious pancakes on Shrove Tuesday!
Some fabulous Snowy Owls writing!
Our beautiful Sensory garden with the new plants kindly donated by our parents.
We love learning the cello in Snowy Owls!
