Reception have been reading and learning about The Little Red Hen. The Little Red Hen creates some bread out of the flour she makes, however Reception thought it would be even better to make some pizza out of flour, tomatoes and cheese.
Each child had a go at making their own pizza and wrote down the ingredients they would be needing. Just look at how good the pizzas look! The kitchen smelt amazing while they were cooking.
The William Amory Primary School and Nursery commemorated the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice – which recognised the significance of the end of the First World War, and the sacrifice made by so many men and women during the war.
Over the course of the theme week, the children took part in a wide variety of activities. We had Officer Miller from @armywestmidlands (https://www.facebook.com/ArmyWestMidlands/) come in to give a talk about how the army was during the First World War and how it is today. We had a selection of army vehicles on the playground (thanks to Mr Herdman for arranging the visit, Foxfield and the Historical Vehicles Association) for the children to look at. The children created a wide variety of poppies for our own displays and also for Leveson Wood to contribute to the poppy display outside St. Peter’s church. The display looks absolutely fantastic and we are ever so proud to have helped with the creation of such a beautiful memorial. A beautiful and delicious cake was created by one of our parents.
Have a look at extensive photos below to see what the children have been up to all over the school.
Year 3 have held a welcome home street party for our injured soldier Harold. Throughout theme week the children have written letters as if they were Harold informing parents of what life was like in WW1 in the trenches and fighting in the battles. They have also collectively created the figure of Harold who has been central to our leaning this week. We have researched street parties and have recreated a welcome home street party for Harold which included trying different foods which were similar to the foods the soldiers would have eaten in the war. We also had a go at rationing our food to give the children a feel of what it would be like to not have food readily available to them.
It looks like you had a lot of fun Year 3!
This year the Christmas Fayre will be on the 30th of November 2018.
It begins immediately after school at 3.30pm and will finish around 5.00pm.
