Egg Rolling!

Mrs Moss decided that she wanted to start a new tradition at Shaugh Prior this year and Egg Rolling it was!! Each child and member of staff spent hours lovingly hard boiling and decorating their egg ready for the big roll. The children competed in heats to create a final of Gia, Lara, Owen, Riley, Isaac W, Liam and Finn, the race was a close rolled thing and the eventual winner was Riley!! Each finalist received a cream egg and Riley deservedly won an Easter Egg!! Thanks again to the PTA for donating the prizes.

 We had a great afternoon in the sun on Monday afternoon, taking part in a big Easter egg hunt! We worked as teams to hunt and explore the school grounds looking for treasure in the shape of Easter Eggs. We were very lucky and rewarded with chocolate of all shapes and sizes!!

This week in forest school, we gave the children a STEM challenge - protect the egg! We started the challenge by showing the children the unfortunate fate of an egg dropped from a high place with no protection (splat!). We then showed the children some resources they could use to protect their egg, but we added an extra challenge, anything they touched had to be used! The children worked well in their teams and were very resourceful. Amazingly every team was successful; all of the eggs survived their fall - well done Shaugh Prior!

We had a lovely Forest School afternoon this week looking after some new additions to the Shaugh Prior team! Megan very kindly brought in some frogspawn from her grandparent’s pond which needed to be transferred to a new home. With the help of some of the older children, we put a small amount in a fish tank to keep in Class 1 and the rest were released into our school pond. The children then had a great time investigating the pond life and created some fab observational drawings of the frogspawn.

Week Ending 26th February 2021

On Tuesday the children had another fun but windy forest school session. Despite the added challenge of the elements, the children created some wonderful dens out of natural materials. The children showed great teamwork and communication skills; they designed their dens, gathered materials and constructed as a team, making sure that everybody was included. At the end of the session, the children were confidently able to give the rest of the school a tour around their dens.

Tuesday afternoon was bitterly cold but we still managed to get out for half an hour picking up all the sticks on our playing field.  We all choose our favourite sticks and returned to the classroom to warm up and make our snowflakes.
