Operating as usual
Today year two took part in some meditation. They were focussing on big emotions and deep breathing.
We found that meditation or just some deep, calm breaths can be a really lovely way to help ourselves get back to green zone!
We recently invited our children to take part in a Platinum Jubilee cake design competition.
The winning entry chosen by the house captains was baked in to a cake today.
With the support of some of our fantastic year 1 parents, the end result is spectacular! This will now be sent for judging by Buckinghamshire Council. If shortlisted, we could win £150 for the Academy.
We are royally proud of all efforts and are hopeful it's a winning entry!
Today in Art year 2 used their clay skills to shape and add texture to their clay snail sculptures.
They used their sketches from last week to help them add details and even used slip to join pieces together!

This afternoon, year 2 have ended the week with a well earned mini-pj dance party! Each week the class work together to earn critters for amazing teamwork and for living the school values. This week the class have excelled themselves, well done 2L!
Foundation Stage have been busy in the garden this morning.
Their bulbs had got too big for the planters, so they moved them into some bigger pots making room to plant some pretty flowers.
The children started by digging holes in the planters to place the flowers in and then carefully covered them over with soil.
The children explained that we needed to water the flowers so that they will grow pretty and big.
We are sure you will agree they are doing a brilliant job with nurturing their plants and vegetables!
This morning, we were lucky to find some tadpoles in our Forest School pond area!
Year 1 have worked together to build a safe habitat so that we can watch a few of them grow and develop, with the correct environment and the necessary factors.
We can't wait to use our observational skills before releasing them back into our pond area as frogs!
We are pleased to announce the winning house for this term was….
Mrs Lancey and Mrs Hunt took the children from house Osprey on an Easter egg hunt around the Acadmey this morning.
They worked together to answer the clues and their prize was a chocolate egg each.
At the start of March, Year 1 planted a few beans each into clear bags, with a little bit of water and a wet paper towel.
After learning about the required factors that plants need to grow, we decided to place the bags on our classroom windows to reach as much warmth and sunlight as possible.
Every week since, we have carefully observed our beans and recorded our findings, as most beans rapidly grew their roots and shoots. Some, however, did not. Alas, this paved way for excellent discussion and investigation!
We have thoroughly enjoyed planting our successful beans today and look forward to completing our final bean diary entry after the Easter holidays! We wonder what they will look like?
🌿Extra Curricular Clubs🌿

Foundation Stage have recently created a fantastic construction area in their outside area which the class have thoroughly enjoyed playing with.
Having a building site so close to the Academy, they took part in a local visit this morning and watched construction happening right in front of them! They saw many construction vehicles in action and also listened to the various sounds – some of which were quite loud!
If any parents/carers have any construction type toys or materials at home that you no longer have use for, we would most certainly welcome in our FG outside area.
🔴 Red Nose Day 2022 🔴
Thank you to all our children, parents and carers for beating our target of £100 with a generous donation of £106.50 towards Comic Relief.

Today year 2 have ended their Science unit by using their knowledge of the properties of materials.
They designed and planned their own gingerbread house before then building it!
They had so much fun and then ended the lesson by debating why their house was the best, making sure to use their scientific vocabulary.
Yesterday we had a very special assembly delivered by our own Eco warriors!
KVPA's year 2 Eco warriors delivered a wonderful and very informative assembly about Fairtrade Fortnight which falls during our half term.
During the assembly the discussed 'What is Fairtrade?', 'Why is it important?' as well as 'What is fair/unfair?'.
What a wonderful way to show aspiration and integrity!
Introducing Year 1's Padd-atoes!
Having studied Michael Bond's "A Bear Called Paddington" text in English this term, Year 1 have used the bear from darkest Peru to inspire their fiction and non-fiction work.
We have created short stories, mapping out our ideas carefully to include the main sections of a fiction text, and have tested our non-fiction understanding by following and ordering a wide variety of instructional texts.
To summarise our wonderful term with Paddington, we have created instructions to make a Padd-ato and have been busy following these instructions to craft our own bears.
Perhaps we will be able to use our instructional knowledge to make some marmalade for Paddington if he ever visits again...
On Friday, year 2 spent some time up in the practical room!
For our weekly critter prize, we choose decorating biscuits and so we got to spend some time, sharing equally, measuring and mixing our icing and finally decorating them!
Foundation Stage held their fab Friday event last week.
We loved opening our FS classroom for you to see what we have been up to and the children loved showing you around.
Thank you for engaging in the 'valentines' activities and playing!
The smiles were infectious.
In story club last week, the children have been enjoying the book 'Oliver's Fruit Salad' By Vivian French. In the story, Oliver does not like fruit until his family make a fruit salad and then he loves all different types.
The children designed their fruit salads and then went to the practical room to chop and sample the different fruit flavours.
The fruit choices were amazing with the children choosing from raspberries, strawberries, orange, grapes, banana, blackcurrant, carrot, apple, blueberries, cherries and even lemons!
The donation crate for the Foodbank is located underneath the canopy near the main academy office entrance.
It’s the day FS have been waiting for……the gymnastics climbing frame was ready and waiting for them this morning. Their smiling faces were brilliant as were their climbing skills.
This week FS have been off to Asia for their 'Around the World' topic. Today is Chinese New Year and the class enjoyed finding out about 'The Great Race' - this is how the Chinese Zodiac calendar was decided.
The classmates have also been playing with 'lucky' red and gold rice. This afternoon we went to the practical room to try some Chinese food. The children were challenged to eat using chopsticks, just as they do in China. It took some concentration but they loved having a go - great resilience FS!
This afternoon, year 1 have been travelling around the world!
We have hopped to each of the seven continents and have navigated our way across the five oceans.
We have been very busy creating fantastic planet Earths to represent our learning.
