Penguins at the seaside!

Penguins enjoyed lots of 'seaside' activities for Livingstone by the Sea. Even though it was a little too chilly for swimming, we still enjoyed playing in paddling pools full of balls and paper! We also played in the sand, enjoyed 'hook a duck', created our own puppet shows, made our own bracelets, did some 'sand' art work...and the crazy golf was a big hit! 

We also enjoyed some delicious food including our fish and chip lunch and ice cream from the ice cream van!

Sports Day fun and Shaduf making in Woodpeckers

The children thoroughly enjoyed their Sports Day and had lots of fun competing in their houses. The weather was gorgeous and all tried their very best. In the classroom, the children worked together to make their shadufs. These were used by Ancient Egyptians to get their water from the River Nile. The children had to work from their designs and problem solve, if needed, to complete their finished designs.

Penguins Election 2024!

Penguins Election 2024!

We learned all about what happens in an election and some of the children in Penguins class created their own manifestos for what they would like to implement if they were in charge of Livingstone Primary School.

They had some great ideas, such as;

·       To tell people how to look after the world

·       Help people with their homework

·       More playing!

·       Make sure people play nicely

·       Learn about everything

·       Have more books in school

·       Bigger apparatus to play on outside

 

Everyone in the class had one vote for their favourite idea…

We had to create a coalition as two ideas both got 6 votes each. And the winners were… Mia and William!

Mia has promised to give everyone a party and William would like to introduce school pets!

Here they are (in the Head Teacher’s office already!)

On Tuesday afternoon, year 2 had an amazing time at their sports day. It was lovely to see so many supportive parents braving the heat so that they could watch from the side lines! Extra special thanks to those who got involved in the parents race!

The teams worked their way around a series of athletics activities including throwing, long jump, side jumps, and bat and ball before finishing off with a long and short distance running race.

 Well done to all of our competitors!

Penguins at the seaside!

Penguins enjoyed lots of 'seaside' activities for Livingstone by the Sea. Even though it was a little too chilly for swimming, we still enjoyed playing in paddling pools full of balls and paper! We also played in the sand, enjoyed 'hook a duck', created our own puppet shows, made our own bracelets, did some 'sand' art work...and the crazy golf was a big hit! 

We also enjoyed some delicious food including our fish and chip lunch and ice cream from the ice cream van!

Year 6 Kestrels - History

Year 6 have been studying the Ancient Greeks.  They have fully immersed themselves in the topic through whole class teaching, independent research and by exploring our non-fictions books.  Year 6 Kestrels made their own Power Points which they presented to the Year 5 Hawks.  It was wonderful to see them sharing their knowledge with such enthusiasm.  We finished the day with a whole quiz which Kestrels had created as part of their ICT lessons.  Thanks for sharing our learning with us Year 5 Hawks!

Year 5 at the Biddenham STEAM fair

Year 5 were lucky enough to attend the Biddenham STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Maths) fair earlier this week. We walked down to Biddenham in time to have lunch in their canteen. After this, we split into groups to participate in various activites such as designing an electronic game and testing speed and strength. Finally, we went into the hall for a presentation where we won best project for our 'Blooming Flower'. We were thrilled to have won and we had a brilliant time joining in with different tasks - it really was great fun all round.

Sports Day fun and Shaduf making in Woodpeckers

The children thoroughly enjoyed their Sports Day and had lots of fun competing in their houses. The weather was gorgeous and all tried their very best. In the classroom, the children worked together to make their shadufs. These were used by Ancient Egyptians to get their water from the River Nile. The children had to work from their designs and problem solve, if needed, to complete their finished designs.

Penguins Election 2024!

Penguins Election 2024!

We learned all about what happens in an election and some of the children in Penguins class created their own manifestos for what they would like to implement if they were in charge of Livingstone Primary School.

They had some great ideas, such as;

·       To tell people how to look after the world

·       Help people with their homework

·       More playing!

·       Make sure people play nicely

·       Learn about everything

·       Have more books in school

·       Bigger apparatus to play on outside

 

Everyone in the class had one vote for their favourite idea…

We had to create a coalition as two ideas both got 6 votes each. And the winners were… Mia and William!

Mia has promised to give everyone a party and William would like to introduce school pets!

Here they are (in the Head Teacher’s office already!)

In the classroom, the children worked together to make their shadufs. These were used by Ancient Egyptians to get their water from the River Nile. The children had to work from their designs and problem solve, if needed, to complete their finished designs.

Spanish Café and Science fun in Woodpeckers

Woodpeckers enjoyed visiting the Spanish Cafe this week. They had to ask for their breakfast in Spanish, using the vocabulary they have learnt in class. They also enjoyed using compasses in Science to complete their work on Forces. In our topic work, we solved clues to find out about the famous archaeologist, Howard Carter.

Penguins Election 2024!

Penguins Election 2024!

We learned all about what happens in an election and some of the children in Penguins class created their own manifestos for what they would like to implement if they were in charge of Livingstone Primary School.

They had some great ideas, such as;

·       To tell people how to look after the world

·       Help people with their homework

·       More playing!

·       Make sure people play nicely

·       Learn about everything

·       Have more books in school

·       Bigger apparatus to play on outside

 

Everyone in the class had one vote for their favourite idea…

We had to create a coalition as two ideas both got 6 votes each. And the winners were… Mia and William!

Mia has promised to give everyone a party and William would like to introduce school pets!

Here they are (in the Head Teacher’s office already!)

Wagtails - Design and make a shaduf

The children in  Wagtails did a spectacular job designing and building their own model shaduf.  They had previously learnt about these important contraptions that pulled water from the Nile river to water the crops for the ancient Egyptians.

Wagtails - Forces and magnets

Wagtails have recently come to the end of a science unit learning about different types of forces and how magnets work.  Part of this was to learn about how the earth has a magnetic field and how we can use that to navigate.  The children did very well in small groups following directions using compasses.

Wagtails - 3 Seasons of Ancient Egypt

The children in Wagtails class have been learning about the 3 seasons that the ancient Egyptians lived by.  They learnt what the Egyptians did during these seasons and the different reasons that they were important.  They then made calendars that represented this information.

Year 2 Sports Day!

On Tuesday afternoon, year 2 had an amazing time at their sports day. It was lovely to see so many supportive parents braving the heat so that they could watch from the side lines! Extra special thanks to those who got involved in the parents race!

The teams worked their way around a series of athletics activities including throwing, long jump, side jumps, and bat and ball before finishing off with a long and short distance running race.

 Well done to all of our competitors!

Penguins at the seaside!

Penguins enjoyed lots of 'seaside' activities for Livingstone by the Sea. Even though it was a little too chilly for swimming, we still enjoyed playing in paddling pools full of balls and paper! We also played in the sand, enjoyed 'hook a duck', created our own puppet shows, made our own bracelets, did some 'sand' art work...and the crazy golf was a big hit! 

We also enjoyed some delicious food including our fish and chip lunch and ice cream from the ice cream van!

Year 6 Kestrels - History

Year 6 have been studying the Ancient Greeks.  They have fully immersed themselves in the topic through whole class teaching, independent research and by exploring our non-fictions books.  Year 6 Kestrels made their own Power Points which they presented to the Year 5 Hawks.  It was wonderful to see them sharing their knowledge with such enthusiasm.  We finished the day with a whole quiz which Kestrels had created as part of their ICT lessons.  Thanks for sharing our learning with us Year 5 Hawks!

Year 5 at the Biddenham STEAM fair

Year 5 were lucky enough to attend the Biddenham STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Maths) fair earlier this week. We walked down to Biddenham in time to have lunch in their canteen. After this, we split into groups to participate in various activites such as designing an electronic game and testing speed and strength. Finally, we went into the hall for a presentation where we won best project for our 'Blooming Flower'. We were thrilled to have won and we had a brilliant time joining in with different tasks - it really was great fun all round.
