During the third week of this half term's Free Range Friday activities, each house team made their careful designs a reality. Each child created a rock fish that they felt represented themselves. This came after discussions around the book 'Only One Me' and how respecting each others individuality makes our school a brilliant place to be.
Today the weather was kind to us and Hillmead School was awash with house colours.
The morning saw EYFS and KS1 completed a series of events that challenged their co-ordination and sporting skills. The children rotated around the activities in their house teams and worked together to earn as many points for their team as possible. The SSOC, House Captains and members of Year 6 helped support EYFS and KS1 during each activity. It was a fantastic morning! The overall winners were ELM TEAM
In the afternoon it was the turn of KS2. Each house team took their place under the gazebos and different team members took part in several events: sprints, javelin, hurdles, long jump, bean bag race and the relays. The overall winners were ASH TEAM
Please see the Bluebell and Violet's Class pages for more information.
After EYFS had their visit from the birds as part of their topic, the rest of the school got the chance to join in too. Tuesday afternoon saw children taking part in a talk and handling session followed by a flight demonstration at the end of the day.
We were visited in assembly by Mad Science who delivered an assembly around water. We learnt how the aquifers are emptied by different uses and thought about ways we could help them to refill. We also learnt about the water we waste when brushing our teeth and having a bath or shower.
The assembly was A LOT of fun and we all learnt how to help save water.
