At Land of Learning we LOVE to read! We have had a terrific week as always this year celebrating book week, which began on the 1st of March 2021. To kick things off, we started with our book week assembly, preparing our children for the fun-packed week ahead.
This year, during the cold and rainy Autumn term, our children learnt about the importance of empathy, and putting themselves in the shoes of those who are less fortunate.
This year, due to Covid-19, we were unable to schedule in our usual outdoor trips for our children, but this did not stop our teachers!
During the month of November, our Year 5 and Year 6 children were given the exciting opportunity to take part in a 2-week cycle training programme with ‘Bikeability’, a national award-winning cycle training institute based in Cambridgeshire.
This year for anti-bullying week, our children and staff joined together to celebrate the key theme of ‘united against bullying’- the idea that if we as a school/community all work together, we can combat bullying.
At Land of learning we pride ourselves in being an eco-friendly school. Children are encouraged to join the school ‘eco-Committee’, where members partake in various eco projects, with the aim of raising environmental awareness in our children from a young age.
Throughout this year’s book week, pupils immersed themselves in a range of poetry and performed out loud using different voice expressions, body language, tone and volume. They were also exposed to a range of poetic devices and used this to create their own poems for the ‘Painting In Words’ masterpiece competition.
This year, children from Year 4 did a fantastic performance based on traditional tales.
Throughout the Spring Term, our year 4 pupils had been studying the topic living things and their habitats. This topic focussed on the 7 life processes of a living thing, grouping animals, creating classification keys, and the various dangers to animals.
As part of our Parent as Partners we invited parents during week beginning 3rd of February 2020, to come and work with their children on Word problems.
