All year groups took part in Active Learning Day, doing their maths and English lessons outside for the day.
Check out the fab photos:
Here's what the children said:
Della (Y1) – I liked it when we all got to share the number sentences that we found at the end. I liked hearing my friends get the right answer. It made me happy.
Lilly (Y5) – I liked the one where you had to see if there was parenthesis or relative clauses, as they were all linked to nursery rhymes.
Alfie (Y1) - It was great getting fresh air outside and I got to solve number problems too!
It was fun because be outside and run around for English and maths which we don’t ever normally do. (Helena Y3)
Maisey – Class 5 all liked being outside for their maths and English today. It was a nice change running about and we did some exercise at the same time!
Amelia (Y1) – Wait, what, was that Maths? Can we do it again?
Maya (Y1) – I believed that I could solve the number sentences and I achieved it… I believed and achieved!
Jayden (Y5) – It wasn’t easy, but everyone persevered and did what they could. No one gave up.
(Anon) - This isn’t as easy as I thought it would be!
In honour of Sir Captain Tom, Colburn School took part in the 'Captain Tom 100 Challenge'. We incorporated the challenges into our lessons which included: counting, reading, writing and making 100, making 100 words, using ‘Captain Sir Tom Moore one hundred’, scoring 100 goals, 100 star jumps, 100 laps of the MUGA, 100 skips and many more 100 activities!
We recently trialled using Now Press Play, which has given every child the experience to be immersed in sound to become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure. We have now subscribed for one year, meaning that our children can still experience going places without actually leaving school.
