4OC had a busy afternoon teaching their visitors lots of skills which they have been working on in class.
We were impressed with how hard our visitors worked for their ‘teachers.’
Some parents were lucky enough to earn pen licenses if their handwriting was of good enough quality! Visitors were put through their mental maths skills in a timed mental maths test, and enjoyed some guided reading sessions in the book corner. Visitors also had the opportunity to group and classify rocks according to their properties, with the aid of our geologists. Other activities included designing a stained glass window using triangles, drawing a character based on a description and reflecting shapes.
It was a great afternoon, we would like to thank all of our visitors who made it such a success as well as the children who worked so hard to run the activities.
The magazine club have been working really hard on the next edition of the magazine. It is filled with news from inside the school, quizzes, stories, jokes, puzzles and photos. The magazine club is made up of year 2 children that give up their own time one lunchtime a week to put together a great magazine for other children to read and enjoy.
The next installment of Yatton Infants magazine is on sale on Thursday 21st March. Please sign up on the class windows if you wish your child to purchase a copy or send a note in with your child saying they would like a copy. The magazines are copied to order to cut down on waste. So please sign up by Thursday and send your child with 40p to school on Thursday to recieve your copy by Friday.
The infant school children had a lot of fun wearing soemthing funny for money this Red Nose Day. There was such a variety of outfits; inside out clothes, various onesies, costumes, colourful clothes and mismatched outfits. The teachers all joined in and donnated too. Throughout the day the children took party in a variety of fundraising events. The school council chose the winner of the face painting competition that had been taking place all week. Philip in Class 2 won the prize of painting Mr. Russe’s face. The school council said his design was chosen because ‘it was colourful and different from the rest.’ Philip really enjoyed painting Mr.Russe.
During the afternoon the year 2 children set up sporting events for the other year groups to take part in. Whilst donnating small change to play the games the children had a lot of fun and learnt some new games. After school pupils from class 8 and 9 helped sell the many cakes that were kindly donated to the school. We sold every single cake and raised a lot of money for this great cause. The day was a huge success with thanks to all parents and carers that helped create costumes and cakes and donnated money. I would like to also thank the children for their involvement, fun spirit and the year 2 children for working so hard.
Thank you to all who participated in our open afternoon. The children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to share their learning and particularly relished taking on the role of teacher!
They spent the afternoon teaching our visitors how to reflect shapes, sort and identify rocks, investigate triangles, earn a pen licence, play tag rugby, play the ukulele, make a one cut book, do guided reading, respond to a character description and do a mental maths test. Phew!
