Enrichment Opportunity Photographs
This week, year one have had an enjoyable afternoon baking delicious crumbles. The children each decided whether they wanted to take apple or pear crumble home to enjoy. They chopped the fruit very sensibly and weighed out the ingredients. This is what some of the finished crumbles looked like. We think they look rather scrumptious and we hope the children and their families enjoyed warming themselves up with this tasty treat. Yum!
Year 2 had a fantastic time at Westacre taking part in the multi-skills festival. They enjoyed taking part in a range of sports activities that were led by Sports Champions from Westactre. The children represented Chawson so well and had a really enjoyable afternoon!
23/11/23 Year One have had a very special visit from Blossom the hedgehog this afternoon. The children enjoyed learning all about hedgehogs and how to care for them. They were very excited to meet Blossom and couldn't believe how cute she was. The adults felt extremely lucky too as they each got to have a special cuddle with Blossom. A big thank you to Jane and Mimi from Clent Hills vets who spent the afternoon with us. What a wonderful afternoon we have had! 🦔
The children that went to Malvern had a brilliant time and achieved their targets of building team work, resilience and independence. They have created many long term memories from their 3 days.
This week the children who didn't go to Malvern enjoyed Chawson activity week. On the first day our theme was dragons. We watched how to train your dragon with breakfast, made dragon eyes from clay and painted dragon wings that we could wear. On the second day we enjoyed a cosy autumn day making and eating apple crumble, playing board games, drinking hot chocolate, playing in forest school and then finally warming up with a game of dodgeball. On the final day we had the theme of space. We spent the morning at Witton making different rockets. Look for the photo of the children's faces when the first rocket launched into the air. In the afternoon, the children had the challenge of building a rocket escape pod that would leave the astronaut (egg) unharmed when it landed on a planet. We were mostly successful! We all had a lovely week.
Improving the school grounds
The Chawson PTA have been kind enough to purchase a large amount of daffodil bulbs to make the grounds bloom in spring and put a smile on both the children's and staff's faces the other side of winter. Each class has had a session of planting and this is 4R in action.
Bonnie has been enjoying getting a brush so that she is ready for Halloween. A relaxing time was had by all!
What an amazing week we have had for our Arts Week! The children have been non-stop with creative activities linked to our 'Save the Planet' focus. Children have participated in a number of workshops from across the arts as well as activities in the classroom. Look out for the Arts Ministers recount of the week after half term!
Special thanks to Severn Arts, ENTW9 Dance Company, Tribe Theatre and Oliver Bliss for their expertise and enthusiasm this week- the children had a fantastic time!
Year 3 had their VE Day celebrations on Thursday and had a wonderful, fun filled day. The children baked war time recipes, created spitfires, played war time games and did war time singing and dancing. They looked brilliant!
A group of 20 children from Year 3 went to Westacre to compete in a football festival to showcase the skills they have been developing in football club this half term. They had lots of fun and won lots of their mini matches at the end of the festival. Well done!
A group of Year 3 and 4 children went to a bowling competition today and did a brilliant job. They were praised for their brilliant behaviour and encouragement of one another. They are looking forward to showing off their medals and certificates in celebration assembly!
Year 2 have enjoyed following instructions to make marmalade sandwiches this week! We hope Paddington Bear keeps a close eye on his as we have two classes full of children who love marmalade sandwiches too!
Year 4 have made healthy pasta bake as part of their topic work and they even made the pasta themselves. Whilst not everyone felt the same, Miss Peck and Bonnie gave it a solid delicious!
To celebrate World Mental Health Day, all of the children came to school wearing something yellow and talked about what mental health is and suggested things that could be done to make someone have better mental health.
The school was an even more bright and happy place!!
Open Trail - Learning to ride a bike
After 2 days of workshops 18 children from Year 4 have learnt how to ride a bike! A big thank you to Will from Open Trail for your amazing encouragement and skill in helping the children learn.
Science Visit to Witton Middle School
Year 3 went to Witton to have a light lesson with Mr Watson and Ms Chorley. The children explored how opaque, translucent and transparent different materials were and then got to design reflective and non-reflective t-shirts. The children had a great time and were able to articulate well what they have already learnt in their light unit.
Our sports ministers went to Worcester to complete their Sports crew training. They did a brilliant job and are very excited to implement new sports initiatives across the school! They have already shared how they will support other children in their role during Key Stage 2 Celebration Assembly.
