Welcome to the Peaches!
This page will help explain some of the awesome learning taking place in our class!
Sports Day 2021
The Peaches loved working in their teams on Sports Day and had lots of fun- even the teachers had a giggle taking part in the races! We hope you like looking through our photographs.
We have been on a hunt looking at different trees in our school grounds. Did you know that we have both deciduous and evergreen trees here? We had a lovely, calm afternoon sketching an apple tree and labelling the different parts.
The Perfect Peaches have absolutely loved finding out about what plants need to grow and survive. This week they were so excited to sow their own pea seed's and loved sowing other plants out in our greenhouse. It's safe to say we have been busy bees!
Wow what a buzzing start to the Summer term!
The Perfect Peaches went outside for our snack and were greeted by our new headteacher Mrs West. She has set us on a top secret special mission to revamp the garden area in our school grounds to make it a beautiful and vibrant area again full of life! We accepted the mission of course and started our work straight away!
The Peaches have had the best time today reading and talking about our favourite books.
We worked in teams and created our very own puppet show! It was so exciting!
At Orchard Infant School we will be remembering all those who fought for their country, those who died and those who came home.
As a school community we all have a connection to someone who has given their lives to ensure we can live in peace and happiness.
For this reason we will be celebrating Remembrance Day at 11am on the 11/11/20 where a 2 minutes silence will be respected for the fallen.
Our children will learn the importance of Remembrance Day and will create a poppy display in our school hall in honour of all service men and women past and present.
Lest we forget.
Our Castle Day!
The Peaches have had the BEST DAY EVER! Our school was transformed into Orchard Castle and we had such a magical day experiencing life as a castle dweller! We had a great time playing some jousting games, doing some medieval dancing, writing on parchment paper and enjoying a royal banquet!
The Peaches have transformed into HISTORIANS!
WOW! The Peaches have been busy this week using books and the internet to research and find out all about castles and castle life in the past. Did you know that the moat protects the people inside the castles from dangerous invaders? Did you know that TV's had not been invented so jesters and minstrels entertained everyone?
Castle Quest... we had some special visitors.
Wow...what an exciting start to the week. We had some very strange looking visitors on Monday! They looked very confused and kept asking us where their castle had gone. We found out that they are Lord and Lady Orchard from the past! They gave us an important mission to find out about the past to help them remember what life was like.
And so...OUR CASTLE QUEST BEGINS!
We have gone "Music Mad"
We have been so busy this week in the Peaches- exploring different musical instruments, pitch and tempo to compose some exciting music to accompany the story "Where The Wild Things Are". We are rehearsing for our WILD RUMPUS performance and we're so excited!
Fun in the woods
We have had a great week searching for adjectives in the woods to describe the character "Max" and those cheeky WILD THINGS!
Express Yourself HOOK!
What a disaster! The Peaches came into school and were absolutely shocked because we had some very naughty visitors overnight! We were feeling very cross and angry because we had to clean up all of the mess. We investigated the area and came to the conclusion that is was indeed THE WILD THINGS!
