Term 2

Olive Tree started our topic this term with an exciting visitor from Wiltshire Wildlife Trust! The children completed a variety of games and activities and learnt about endangered species. We then looked at our local environment and how we can start protecting it (I think there will be a number of 'hedgehog friendly garden' conversations!). Thank you to ROOTs for giving us this amazing opportunity. Watch this space for our pledges coming into action!

Term 2

Olive Tree children were given a fantastic opportunity this term when Konflux Theatre came in and completed a 'play-in-a-day'! The children showed amazing enthusiasm and commitment as they learnt lines, created actions and put together a fantastic performance - without even looking at the script! The performance centred around the theme: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and we learnt a lot of interesting facts as we were learning our performance.

 

The other classes and staff came to watch their performance at the end of the day and Olive Tree children had great reviews! Miss Read was very proud of everything they accomplished and can't wait to see more amazing acting in the future!

 

 

Term 3

This Term our DT unit has been ‘Mechanical Systems’ and we have made our own Olive Tree theme park! The children have designed and made their own fairground ride that spins using a pulley system. It was harder than it looked but the children faced the challenge head-on and created some fantastic rides! Take a look at some of our designs.
