Ruswarp Church of England Primary School Think for Yourself and Act for Others

Class Blog 2021

Hello and welcome to our new class blog!


Each week we will update with what we have been doing in Discoverers Class.

We started our Advent Preparation by using a kindness Advent Calendar; day one asked us to create a homemade gift. Discoverer's made coasters for someone, with a design that is special to that person. As you can see they look wonderful and I am sure everyone will feel lucky to receive one.

As part of this half terms RE topic we recreate the picture of Baptism of Jesus by Daniel Bonnell, depicting the Trinity - God the Father the creator of all things. God the Son whose life changed the world by rescuing people from sin and God the Holy Spirit, who gives life to the people of God. In our pictures you can see the beauty around of God the Father, the figure of Jesus as God the Son and the dove coming from heaven as God the Holy Spirit.

Here are some of our poems that we wrote for anti-bullying week using the #onekindword

This week we have been taking part in anti-bullying week, as part of the week we have written poetry, completed mindfulness colouring and word-searches. We also made book marks using the #onekindword. Our classmates had to write one kind word to describe us, it made us feel warm inside and appreciated (Frankie). It made us feel noticed (Thomas). It made us feel part of the class. (Zara) It made us feel special. (Teddy)

We had a great time on Friday celebrating Children In Need, we did some dancing and fitness routines with Pudsey. We iced cakes, completed some mindfulness colouring, created Pudsey split pin puppets as well as reading comprehension and math's sheets. We raised money for Children in Need by coming in our own clothes and buying cakes at the bake sale - they looked fabulous and tasted even better.

We have had a wonderful forest school session today and we even got to put up school's brand new teepee! We worked really well as a team and are very impressed with it. What do you think?

Today we got to celebrate Frankie earning the most dojo's over the first half term. Her treat for the class was for us to wear our pj's and onsies' and watch the emoji movie with popcorn. As you can see we had a wonderful afternoon, thank you Frankie for thinking of a great treat for us all to enjoy. 

Together we made clay poppies to plant in the planter at the front of school as a mark of Remembrance. We painted them the traditional red and also purple to remember the animals who also lost their lives in the war. I sure you agree, they look wonderful. 

It is our first forest school session today and we had a brilliant time exploring the forest area, splashing in the swamp and working together as a team to create some nature art..

After our visit from David Atherton we were inspired to do some baking with a healthy twist - here we are making banana and mango cake, carrot and chi seed, sweet potato cake, chocolate and apricot tiffin and blueberry muffins.

We have been celebrating National Fitness Day by taking part in a fitness circuit - we did squats, press ups and running on the spot as well as many more exercises.

We explored what, 'Think for Yourself and Act for Others' meant to us and ways it which we can live it out. Using freeze framing skills we captured different pictures showing our school vision.
