A fun filled week in Elm

This week has been jam packed! At the beginning of the weeks lots of us put on our running shoes and started taking part in the daily Golden Mile. All children are encouraged to do this. Bus children are able to take part when they arrive at school.

The Y4s continued the sport theme by taking part in a multi skills event at Avon Valley College. Activities consisted of: S&Q, bench ball, rounders, wheelchair basketball, archery and tri golf. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wheelchair basketball and were able to appreciate what amazing athletes you have to be to be successful at the sport.

Finally, today, the house points were collected and the winning house was announced….Mars! Well done to all children who earned house points for Mars. They enjoyed an afternoon creating Lego creations with Brickies.

Good luck to all of you who are competing in the triathlon on Sunday. I hope to pop along during the 11am slot to support from the sidelines!

Astounding Woodborough hill!

At lunch, all of Woodborough School went up Woodborough hill for ascension day. We all loved having lunch and playing on it. There were amazing sights on a height that high! The walk was long and tough, but we all made it in the end. On the way back, lots of people all ran down the hill and loved it! Reverend Larkey said her speech and Mark read the end of Matthews gospel then we all had lunch. Everyone was so excited to have a play in the grass although there were quite a lot of hide and seeks plus tag. When we got back to school we all miss everything we did at Woodborough hill!

Broachtastic

Today in art we were making Viking broaches out of tin foil, card board, string and acrylic paint. Here is how we made them. First you get a piece of cardboard and draw your broach design. Next, you cover it with glue then you have to cut some string and put the it on your patterns. Then you get some tin foil and go over the string with the foil then you have to press down with your finger. Finally you can get some acrylic paint and paint over the patterns. We had so much fun and some of our broaches are on our display!

Viking long ships

Today we made Viking long ships .There was many exited faces in the classroom. We had very sticky fingers but they looked amazing. Mrs Wren was saying she was so happy with 24 finished and if we didn’t finish we could take them home. The ones which are finished we can have them for display. We all enjoyed it was a very fun activity.
