We are having a great time here. It is fun working on the farm and then fun spending time together in the evenings. Looking forward to telling you all about it when we return tomorrow!
Remember our very own farmers will be returning at 2pm on Friday
Wow! What a lot we have managed to pack in so far at the farm. We are all loving it here and (although we are missing home too) wish we could stay for even longer. It is hard work but lots of fun. Thank you for all the messages you have left on the blog.
Troopers of Holbeach do it again. In howling wind and driving rain they’ve fed it, shoveled it and wheelbarrowed it all day without a complaint. Adventure is the word they are using! What a great time they are all having
Lovely sunny day now. The lamb in the photo was only born 5 minutes ago!
After a long journey from school yesterday morning, students from Years 4 and 5 arrived safely at Wick Court Farm. They have been settling in well, getting to know their surroundings and pitching in with looking after the animals!
Last Friday, Year 5 held a showcase to exhibit and celebrate our learning in the Autumn term on the topic ‘Water, Water Everywhere’. Parents, carers and friends were treated to examples of our writing through newspaper articles about the 1968 Lewisham floods, stories inspired by ‘Flotsam'(a picture book by Paul Wiesner) and our non-chronological reports on sea creatures both real and fictional. Our fictional creatures were designed habitats using our imaginations and models of these were on display too.
Parents and carers were also able to speak to us to learn all about our trip to Deptford Creek.
As part of DT, we designed and made our own delicious soups which were available for tasting.
Many visitors chose to have a go at using pastels to sketch shells, as we had done during our art lessons.
Finally, 5D performed a very informative assembly all about water.
Thank you to all who attended!
For homework this week, continue practicing your lines and lyrics for the Christmas performance.
Also, complete your times tables sheet.
