Please see our yearly overview below for some of the key dates for 2014/2015:
Sports & Healthy Eating Week
The children have had great fun completing a range of activities that involve Zumba routines, circuit training, football coaching with Notts Forest and multi-skills events at school and at Quarrydale.
They have also had a great time completing activities about healthy eating all week. They have thought about what makes a healthy lunch box, looked at certain types of food and the "eat-well plate" and made their own healthy meals. Healthy eating week finishes with a whole school picnic out on the school yard this lunchtime.
Year 3 Trip to Jewry Wall and Newarke Houses Museum
Year 3 went on a fantastic trip to Jewry Wall and Newarke Houses Museums. We became archaeologists for the day, investigating Roman artefacts, piecing together mosaics and marching like real Roman Legionaries. The children even came under heavy attack by the teachers! Lots of fun learning and a great experience was had by all.
Year 1 & 2 Trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park
We went around the whole of the wildlife park looking at animals and their habitats. We saw lions, giraffes, zebras and flamingos. The weather was beautiful and a great day was had by all.
The Halle Concert at The Royal Concert Hall (Years 3 & 4)
Year 3 and 4 had a fabulous time playing with the Halle orchestra in Nottingham. All our trumpet practice had paid off as we played along with 2,000 other people. It was loud, but great fun!
Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers
We have raised a massive 3059 Sainsbury's Active Kids vouchers this year. Thank you for all your support in helping us exceed our target of 2552. We have now ordered our play boccia set as well as a ball inflator pump and two instruct-a-rugby balls.
Foundation Stage Trip to Nottingham Castle
Foundation Stage children went to visit Nottingham Castle and had great fun role playing on the castle adventure playground. We learnt about what Nottingham Castle would have been like when Richard the Lionheart lived there and loved making a sound scape of sounds heard at the castle today and comparing this to our sound scape of sounds heard back in 1067.
Year 4 Trip to Ashfield Fire Station
Year 4 had a fantastic time at on our trip to the fire station. They learnt a lot about fire safety and safety around water, as well as collecting lots of mini-beasts and pond life to discover how much wildlife can be harmed if fire & water safety isn’t followed!
Foundation Stage Trip to Frankie & Benny's
Foundation Stage went on a visit to Frankie & Benny’s linked to their week on Italy. The children all learnt the story of how Frankie and Benny became friends and opened a restaurant. Whilst we were at the restaurant the children made pizzas and had them baked by the chef Chris. They were delicious!!
Year 4 Trip to Jorvik Viking Centre
Year 4 had a fabulous time at Jorvik and although it was a long trip, we had lots of fun and enjoyed learning about how the Vikings fought. We enjoyed using Viking shields and studying how JORVIK might have looked when the Vikings were there.
Dr Who Workshop
Eight families from Forest Glade have been taking part in our 'Dr Who Workshop'. Take a look below at the fantastic Daleks they have made!
Year 1 Trip to Sherwood Forest
Year One’s have had a fantastic time at Sherwood Forest. Average sized John told us all about the history of Robin Hood. He was really good and told us lots of stories. In the afternoon we looked at the forest; completed bark rubbings, a colour nature hunt and observational drawings of Major Oak.
Take look how much fun we had learning all about Poland.
Sport Relief 2014
We had so much fun raising a grand total of £198.32 for Sport Relief 2014. We wore sports outfits and took part in lots of fun sporting activities including: skipping, running, hurdling and bean bag throwing!
