There's no I in TEAM!
Apple Class were working together to clean our playground, showing the value of co-operation.
Good teamwork Apple!
In Cherry Class (Reception) this week we have had a lot of fun acting out our new adapted stories of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. When adapting our stories, Cherry's new story was called 'We're going on a Lion Hunt'. We wrote our new story in a big book to help us tell the story and also made new actions to help us remember.
Here are some photos of the children acting out the stories in their 'Talk Partners'.
The children in Reception Apple Class have been learning to play the most and least bear cave game. In small groups, the children waiting patiently to roll the dice. They had to put the same number of bears onto their ten frame as displayed on the dice. We discussed which cave had the most and least number of bears. We gave reasons for our answers such as, "David has the most bears because 10 is the biggest number." You could try creating your own game using objects in your home.
This week, Apple Class in Reception have been working hard to create their own 'Going on a Bear Hunt' puppets to put into their own story bags which they independently illustrated.
The children listened very carefully to the instructions and followed each of the steps to make the puppets.
In preparation for the festive period, Bannockburn are taking part in in an official Festive card design competition for MTR Elizabeth Line.

The winning design will then be printed and distributed (via E-card) to all MTR employees and stakeholders, plus the winning design will also feature on a poster that will be displayed at a station close to school during the festive period. The child of the winning entry will also receive a number of prizes for their efforts.

Year 6 Musical Questions and Music Answers.
Year 6 have been working on their music reading skills; improvising skills AND composing skills.
We have used the xylophones and used a Pentatonic scale to improvise over 8 beats.
We then used an existing rhythm to create a 4 bar phrase - adding note pitches to create a musical question and answer.
