Woodlands had fun with the annual times table Easter egg hunt. Children had to find the calculation for the given number on the egg. As you can see it was yet again a popular challenge! @WhiteRoseMaths @MathsMastery @NCETM
On Thursday the President of Tonbridge Lions Club, Tom Simmons, presented the school with two copies of the beautiful book, The Lost Words. The book is a response to the decline of nature words in children's language. Its aim is to stimulate children's passion for the natural world. The book combines evocative spell-poems and exquisite illustrations. We are very grateful to the Tonbridge Lions for generously presenting us with these copies, which we will ensure are enjoyed by our pupils. Tonbridge Lions Club
KS2 was also a hive of activity during our whole-school Science day:
Year 3 looked at the impact micro-plastics have on our environment and presented ways in which we could go more plastic-free at Woodlands. They also looked at Jane Goodall's conservation work.
Year 4 took their journey above land and found out about Amy Johnson and aviation.
Year 5 journeyed to the rainforests of Brazil (with some help from Steve Backshall) to explore life cycles.
Year 6 focussed on Captain Scott. They investigated different materials and their effectiveness for keeping liquids warm.
It's been a busy morning at Woodlands! We have been celebrating British Science Week with a whole-school Science curriculum day. This year's theme is 'Journeys'. Take a look at what KS1 have been up to this morning and stay tuned to see what KS2 have been doing.
The assembly today in Oak was focussed on how we can help the planet through recycling. We also explored the idea of stating small and helping out in our local community. Watch this space for more news. @CommitStreetTon
