    Welcome to Buzzards' Class!


    Welcome to Buzzards class of 2017-2018!

    We hope you have had a lovely summer and are feeling refreshed and ready to face the term! We hope that our pupils will be very happy in our class and will feel more confident as they get to know us throughout the year.

    We have made a great start to the year and are enjoying having our playground back. Watch this space for more information!

    It is class swap day today. We have some new Buzzards in our class as we are all in our new classes for September. Mrs Mylechreest and Mrs Harrison have had a lovely morning getting to know new children and are really looking forward to September!

    Mr and Mrs Twit. What a scary bunch!

    As part of our Outdoor Learning, Buzzards had a wonderful time in the woodland just behind school. In groups we collected natural materials and then in the style of Andy Goldsworthy we created sculptures. We had great fun with some fantastic designs.
    We braved the rain and walked to Chalford along the canal. We had a great morning; looking at wildlife, identifying plants and using our senses to explore. We worked out that we had walked 4 and a half miles. We were ready for our roast dinner on our return! Well done Buzzards.

    To round our hot and busy week off, we had a lovely treat!

    Mrs Durr-Sorensen came to talk to us about music. 

    She brought in her flute, bassoon and contrabassoon. It was amazing to hear her play some lovely tunes on these instruments and she also told us a bit about them and how they worked.

    Thank you!

    What a hot week!

    The children have coped really well, the fan has been working overtime but we have kept going.

    The children designed, made and evaluated their clay mythical creatures. They had great fun and enormous thanks to some of the year 6s who came and helped, you were brilliant.

    A few general photos to show you our work, these will become characters in our Greek stories that we will be writing.

    Buzzards Class ate like Gods and Godesses at their Greek Banquet

    To support our topic and learn about Greek food traditions, Buzzards class had a Greek banquet. Each pupil planned a traditional Greek dish, researched a recipe and then cooked the food. As a class we then tasted all of these foods and evaluated them.

    The table was bulging with delights from tzatziki and flat breads, to bbq mackerel fillets, lamb kebabs, calamari and baklava.

    The children were very adventurous and tasted a lot of new foods.

    Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came and helped with this Greek treat.
