EYFS Planting Day
In our Reception class outdoor area, we all agreed that it needed a little bit of a tidy up. Parents and carers came in to work with the children to plant out the areas. The children enjoyed working with their parents in choosing the plants and planting them. They were able to talk about the parts of the plant and how we needed to look after them to make sure they grow healthy and strong. We think the area looks fabulous, what do you think?
Athlete in School
Everyone at Breadsall, including the staff, took part in a morning of Circuit Training led by Sports For Schools. This was a sponsored event and the money raised is going to support the school in buying more PE equipment. Everyone had fun and this was a great way to have raise money and keep fit.
At BHTP we all follow the RESPECT code that runs throughout the school. We have run a competition to design a super hero for each of the letters in RESPECT, to help us all remember the code. Our School Council had a really difficult job and spent a lot of time in looking at the entries. They discussed the colours and overall design. The winners were announced at the first assembly of this year, it was very exciting for all of us.
At Breadsall we are working towards our silver Artsmark Award. To do this we have been looking at the music, performance and art we take part in, in school. In November we had a fantastic arts week, the whole school took part in a range of activities across the week.
We had a spooning workshop in Yr 3 & 4, where everyone was able to learn to play the spoons. Max in Yr3 thought that playing the spoons was ace and Mirsad loved the workshop too! We had a dinosaur workshop in Yr 1& 2, Kaiden said, 'the dinosaurs were awesome!' There were lots of opportunities for painting and creating which both Lily in Yr2 and Lexi in Yr3 loved.
There was also a whole school assembly with the Rock Steady musician who will be returning to develop music skills further. Yr5 & 6 took part in willow weaving and the whole school painted pebbles around the theme of RESPECT, these will form a permanent art instillation in our school grounds.
Cameron in Yr4 thought the week was great because he got to look at the Northern Lights and lots of the pupils enjoyed the fact that learning was different because there was art in maths and English. We can't wait for the next Arts week!
