  • 100 Miles in March for WWF!

    Published 11/04/22

    Please join me in saying a HUGE well done to Amazon Class for completing their 100 Miles in March challenge for WWF! The children have shown enthusiasm and dedication to reach their target throughout March, running around our school field in rain, sun and even snow. Chanting, “We’re doing it for the animals!” whilst running, has really helped us along.

    Thank you for your donations on Facebook and through ParentPay, so far raising over £200!

    I am so proud of each and every one of the children and shall present their certificates after the Easter break.

  • Fairtrade Brownies

    Published 05/04/22

    Yesterday, Amazon Class learnt about what Fairtrade means and why it is so important for farmers across the world to receive a fair price for what they grow and produce. We also learnt about how chocolate is grown and harvested in Ghana.

    The children showed great empathy for the farmers who produce what we eat, wear and use and explored different packets of food to find the Fairtrade logo. We then used these ingredients to make Fairtrade brownies to sell at our cake sale today.

    Everyone who tasted our brownies reported that they tasted "delicious" and all the more delicious for being Fairtrade!

  • African Artwork

    Published 31/03/22

    During Term 4, Amazon Class have been exploring African Art. We started by looking at the magnificent painting of South African artist, Esther Mahlangu, who creates bold, symmetrical artwork using repeated patterns. We then created artwork in the style of this artist.

    We have also enjoyed making Batik bunting to decorate our corridor, observing the bright colours commonly seen on fabrics in Africa.

    Finally, we explored the Maasai Tribe and their way of life in comparison to our own and created collar jewellery in the style of the tribe.

  • Cotswold Wildlife Park Adventures

    Published 29/03/22

    On Friday, Amazon Class enjoyed an exciting trip to Cotswold Wildlife Park as part of our 'On Safari' topic. It was a beautiful day for adventuring and the children eagerly explored all the different animals who inhabit the park.

    We were on the lookout for animals that live in Africa; finding lions, rhinos, meerkats, giraffes, zebras and many more. We enjoyed an African Animal talk by a zookeeper who told us all about how animals survive and adapt in the wild, and how they care the animals at the park. We were very surprised to hear what the zookeepers feed the lions at the zoo!

    We also loved meeting the lemurs who were very friendly, watching the penguins being fed and spotting Sonny the meerkat from 'Meerkat Mail'.

    Whilst on our trip the children of Stanton made us so proud, being considerate of the animals and working together to complete the challenges set. A huge well done, Amazon Class! 🦒🦏🦁
