Year 4 celebrate 'Children in Need Day'
Morpurgo class started the Children in Need celebration with a discussion, learning the importance of helping and supporting children. It followed by colouring their own Pudsey Bear and making a book mark. The children really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun on that day.
On Monday 18th-Wednesday 20th November, Year 4 attended Ufton Court for their second residential visit of the year.
The children were very excited to stay in the cabins and get stuck in with all the activities again.
Throughout the visit the children worked on targets relating to well-being, self-esteem, tenacity, friendship and empathy. By the end of the visit, the children were able to give lots of examples of ways that they had met these targets or recognised when others had shown these qualities.
To work towards their targets, the children helped look after the animals on the farm, prepare their own meals and worked in teams to light fires, do archery and complete challenges such as to cross an area without touching the floor.
Nerves were running high for the night walk but after a story about a boy who practised his ‘night eye’ the children found they also have the super-power to see in the dark!
It was a brilliant trip for all involved and Year 4 did themselves proud, working well together and showing what it means to be proud to belong.
