KS2 and the wider world in PSD - money and work. Pupil teams had to complete a loop by working out the money answer then find the card at the other end of the playground. Pupils worked out team roles - work out answer, pass on information then run to collect the answer.
As part of their edible garden topic in Food Technology, KS2EE pupils added mint, lemon and cucumber to ice cold water to produce their own drink creation. This lovely refreshing drink was offered to staff and pupils around school to taste and give feedback.
Key stage 2 pupils made Fairy Cakes focusing on taking turns, sharing ideas and working together as a team. Pupils also developed their organisation skills by following the recipe instructions and fine motor skills using the equipment.
KS2 pupils during PSD played 'Steal or Split' and then discussed honesty and trust and why they think it is important quality to have. Pupils then watched real life examples and said whether they thought the person was being honest or dishonest and what the impact is.

KS2 pupils have been practicing their observational drawing skills by drawing a Christmas elf. Pupils all worked independently on their designs whilst getting into the Christmas spirit listening to festive music.
