During dinosaur week we completed a range of activities. We made dinosaur fossils, experimented with a dinosaur egg made of ice and created dinosaur pictures. We enjoyed learning about dinosaurs and moving like them during PE.
During Walkabout Wednesday we went out to collect natural materials to create stick men. The children chose the materials they thought would work best to create a person. When some of the children had finished creating their person they went to help others who were struggling. We were working on helping others.
During walkabout about Wednesday we went out into the school grounds to collect different leafs. We looked at how the leaves are changing colours and looked for other signs of Autumn. We then took our leaves inside to create hedgehog pictures. These are our hedgehogs!
In Oak class we have started gymnastics with Mr Tinsley. We have been looking at different movements, including high and low movements. We have also been looking at balancing and how we can balance on different parts of our bodies. We have enjoyed getting the apparatus out and using this to create different movements. We are looking forward to using it again, here are some pictures from our first apparatus lesson.
Our defibrillator is here and ready to use if we ever need to use it (hopefully not!)
Gotham staff have now taken part in CPR and defibrillator training thanks to SADS UK and East Midlands Ambulance Service. We are all feeling much more confident about using this life-saving equipment if we ever had to!
