Impala 2023 - 2024

Skeletons!

In science we have been learning about skeletons – their purpose, and the names of different bones. The children have worked so well with each other, sharing and discussing ideas.

NSPCC Number Day - Dress Up For Digits/NSPCC Rocks!

Children wore an item of clothing with a number on it and made a suggested donation of £1 towards the NSPCC on Numbers Day. We were very impressed by the creative outfits and the money raised will help the NSPCC run its Speak Out Stay Safe programme to help children understand what abuse is and what to do if they're scared or worried.

 

We spent the day doing lots of fun Maths activities, and we took part in a Times Table Rock Stars Competition: NSPCC ROCKS! Each child who entered had a maximum of 1 hour to get as many correct answers as possible. The children were given some time in class to do this but completed their hour at home.

 

Thank you so much to everyone who supported this great event!

Forest School

This year, with support from the Woodland Trust, I am introducing Forest School to Belmont! Two classes are taking part this term and they have been very excited to start their outdoor learning adventure! Forest School aims to support the whole child – their physical, mental and emotional development - and build on a child’s innate motivation and positive attitude to learning, offering them the opportunities to take  supported risks, make choices and initiate learning for themselves, in a woodland or natural environment.

 

Impala Class have their weekly Forest school session every Monday - whatever the weather! As well as a suitable coat, we ask that children are provided with a pair of named wellies in a bag that can be brought into school on their Forest School day or kept in school if easier!

Clay Tiles

In Art this term we have been working with clay to create a tile inspired by the sculptor Mark Reed.

Moving Monsters!

In our Design Technology we used pneumatic systems to create a moving monster! The children showed amazing imaginations and DT skills.

Children In Need Day

Everyone looked fab for Children in Need Day, raising lots of money for the charity. Well done Impala Class!

Corum Life Education Visit

We all loved seeing Harold the Giraffe and learning how to keep our bodies and minds healthy when Jenny and Sarah from Coram Life Education came to Belmont this week. Children took part in a fantastic workshop discussing topics such as healthy diets and understanding what is important to us.

A Wonderful Harvest Celebration!

I am very proud of the children along with those in Barasingha Class who welcomed their parents and carers to our harvest celebration. They all did a brilliant job and sang beautifully! They thought about why we celebrate harvest in the autumn and why we support people who are less fortunate than ourselves.

 

We would like to say a big thank you for all the wonderful food donations which we have delivered to Grantham Foodbank.

Trip To Flag Fen

We had an amazing ‘stone age survival’ day at Flag Fen! During the day, we practiced house building, doing ‘wattle and daub’; we made paints with natural materials; we were hunters and threw spears; we explored bronze age and stone age artefacts and finally spent time in a roundhouse with a warming fire!

Cave Drawing and Painting!

We have really enjoyed our learning about the Stone Age. The children loved drawing and painting their own cave art. We all had great fun and the children showed a real understanding of how different life was in the Stone Age. What a brilliant start to the new school year!
