Wick Court Farm Day 3

Our first job this morning was to herd the sheep from their overnight pen into the field. We worked together as a team and did a great job. Unfortunately, one cheeky little lamb escaped and Farmer Stuart had to run off and catch it!
After that our teams fed all the animals and did some birdwatching (one group spotted 18 different types of bird including great tits, goldfinches, blue tits robins and pheasants).
Children got creative today by willow weaving and drawing treasures from nature that we discovered on our walk.
We enjoyed (yes, enjoyed) mucking out the horses today and loved grooming them.

One group walked to Oldbury Dairy to watch the cows being milked. Whilst there we were able to meet Meg, the vet and watch her treat one of the young calves.
Before bed this evening, we had a fun Wick Court Farm quiz, hot chocolate and a small piece of Miss Awosiyan’s birthday cake!

Wick Court Farm Day 2

Today, we were up and out on the farm by 7.30am feeding the ducks, pigs, chickens, horses and sheep. Once the animals had eaten their breakfast, the Holbeach farmers had their own breakfast.
The rest of the day was spent gardening, planting trees and cooking. We made leek and potato soup with cheese scones for dinner and it was truly scrumptious!

Teddy Bear Rolls – 1S

This half term in P.E we are learning different rolls. We have learnt to do a pencil/log roll and an egg roll. Can you show someone at home how to do these rolls? (Make sure you have some space around you)

This week we have been trying to learn how to complete a ‘Teddy Bear Roll’ but are finding them quite tricky. If you have someone safe at home to do this roll, you could practise, ready for next week. The video below shows you how to complete one.

6F – PE

This week in PE, we have learned three dance steps and we have worked in teams to create a routine that represents a London landmark. We were able to use our knowledge about gymnastics. We had to put all our moves together so that they would match the song. Also, we were very creative with our moves and we worked hard to make sure we were all synchronized.

At the end of the lesson, we performed with our teams for the class and they had to guess the landmark we chose to represent. It was so much fun and we were all not only great dancers, but also a good audience!

Performing was one of the hardest parts of the lesson, but we all felt so happy and proud of ourselves after we did it 🙂
