Evacuees!

 

 

After carefully packing our bags, Year 3 and 4 prepared to be evacuated today! First we had to assemble in the hall.

We then set off for the ‘station’ – none of the children knew where we were going or how long it would take to get there. (We actually only walked out of the gate, back in again and round the field, but the uncertainty was part of the process!)

After that we met together in the hall and were split up into 3’s, where the children had to share with their new evacuee partners what they had decided to bring. There were some interesting choices!

It was a very interesting morning and was a super stimulus for some of our writing work – well done Columba class.

World War 2

This term our new topic is World War 2. Some of us have already brought in some interesting objects from home for our display but it’s looking a bit empty. Remember to ask your grandparents, great aunties and uncles and anyone also you know who is quite old and remembers the war (that’s not me!!) if they have any old pictures or objects we could borrow. We have been looking at lots of pictures, to study and find out more about the war – there were a lot of interesting discussions.

Mr Men stories and Foot painting!

We’ve had a very busy couple of weeks in Columba. In English we’ve been writing and illustrating our own Mr Men stories which we then shared with some of the children in KS1. Then today, as part of our topic on disability, we found out how tricky it would be to be a foot painter. We brought home our efforts tonight – I think we might need a bit more practice!
