This week in TB - WC 03/05/21

We've had a big science focus in TB this week, looking at food-webs with US and classification in LS.

Collage 2021-05-04 18_02_59

LS children had to study ten minibeasts found in our school pond, agree their key features and then, using a Field Studies Council guide, identify what they all were. Children were brilliant at this, demonstrating critical thinking and negotiation within their teams.

US children explored ecosystems and took on the form of different organisms found within the Antarctic marine environment. We linked predator and pray with wool, and discussed how humans impacted on the balance of a food Web, for example, by harvesting krill.

In the wood, children then made food webs for KJS's own aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem - they had to forage resources to create representations for the different creatures - lots of Organisation, Creativity and Collaboration needed here!

A few other things were going on amongst this: some in US continued work on the Great Hall, cutting wood for furniture, constructing a fence, paving a path and designing leather banners for decoration; a few took to the mounds and unearthed more pottery, historic glass, glazed bricks and roof tiles; pond dipping; den building.

Finally, huge thanks to Endeavour and Resilience who worked incredibly hard to tidy the TB site and load our log-store! 

Clara's Beautiful Work

Year 3 pupil Clara, always tries her best in everything she does and as can be seen from her beautifully presented work, her effort, hard work and positive attitude in school is achieving great results.

Keep it up Clara!

Achievement Assembly Winners

Despite it only being a four day week this week, the children have worked really hard and embraced all aspect of school life- particularly the Ancient Egyptian Day in the lower school.

Certificates were presented for excellence in mathematics and Headteachers Awards were presented for consistent hard work and positivity.

One Headteacher's Award was also presented for an amazing story written by Connor in Ancient Egyptian  hieroglyphs.

Inspiring Egyptians

Another great day in Team Resilience, studying all things Egyptian. We had a super session rewriting the last chapter of: 'There's a  Pharaoh in the Bath,' as a playscript; have used hieroglyphs in our number and artwork and may have smiled, posed and danced our way throughout the day!

Stepping back in Time

It has been an exciting Egyptian day in the Lower School. From pharaohs to princesses, gods with their slaves, and even camels and pyramids, what a brilliant effort to conclude our Ancient Egyptian topic!

Well done to you all. We hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did.

This week in Trailblazer - 26/04/21

A fine week in TB focusing on the Water Cycle in LS and Flowering Plants / Pollination in US.

Children were given the opportunity to explore these ideas through music / drama, paint and collage.

We had to use a lot of our YOU22 skills, particulaly Collaboration, Communication, Problem Solving and Confident - staff were pleased to see unexpected children shining brightly within their teams, making wonderful contributions, and were additionaly warmed by the frequency with which children rewarded the efforts of their peers with pins!

A little sideline was continuation of the work on the Great Hall - gable ends are now complete, shingles are all installed, gargoils have been added and mini decorative shields made and fixed to the internal framework - we intend to add a fence, furniture and mannequins dressed as vikings next week and, once finished, light a fire in the hearth!

We've also continued work excavating the soil mounds on the field - they've turned up Victorian pottery, fossils, roof tiles, decades old glass and two incredible vulcanite bottle tops perhaps dating from the late 1800s (we wondered if they were ones Mr Hull had discarded when he were a lad).

Achievement Assembly Winners

Another successful week in school concluded with today's Achievement Assembly when the boys and girls were recognised by their teacher for their hard work in English.

There were also certificates presented to children showing a positive attitude in school and to those who have gone the 'extra-mile' this week.

Annabelle also skillfully played the piano to welcome the children into the hall.
