Immersive Learning, Focus Day 4
This term’s Focus Day saw Year 3 pupils investigating rainforest adaptation: making Terrariums, conducting an experiment on leaf structures and waxy coatings and designing and creating an innovative above-the-ground root structure, strong enough to hold a tree! Year 4 enjoyed a brilliant workshop delivered by Crossteach, as they learned about the Easter Story with a crime scene re-enactment of Jesus’ ascension from the tomb. In the afternoon, they foraged for foliage to make beautiful Easter Gardens which will grow over the coming weeks. Year 5 spent the day re-telling Shakespeare’s Macbeth, producing some very clever pop-up books! The Year 6 French theatre workshop was sadly cancelled by the company, but that didn’t stop Mme Collett organising a great day on the topic of ‘holidays’. Pupils practiced ordering food and drinks from a beachside café and produced some fantastic presentations on various French-speaking holiday destination – all delivered in French! Years 7&8 enjoyed their visit to a local farm, where they learned about the production of wool, before returning to school to create their stunning felted landscapes.

It’s been a busy week full of book related fun. To kick off Book Week The Library hosted a Book Hunt for the Prep School on Monday which saw the children hunting high and low for a selection of titles. On Tuesday it was Pre Prep’s turn as they took to the Astro to hunt for favourite book characters—I’m glad to say the glum weather did not dampen their high spirits! Prep School have been designing bookmarks during their library sessions with some fantastic designs created by our artistic pupils.
