What an exciting term we have ahead of us. We have already had great fun getting to know the children during transition times and they seemed very settled, happy and excited for the year ahead. Our team also enjoyed seeing the children in their home environments and spending time getting to know them a little more. These were fabulous experiences that were an important start to our topic this term on 'Marvellous Me'. We have lots more fun activities planned, which we will this space!

Welcome back after a lovely Easter Break. We have had a fantastic start to the school term and have launched into our topic of Journeys. Already the children have had great fun creating maps of journeys they would like to go on to visit their dream location. They have already been writing about their favourite mode of transport and have listened to lots of Journey Stories. Some children have decided that they would like to learn the Three Billy Goats Gruff so that will be our next Talk for Write story. We have also enjoyed inviting the parents in for our latest Stay and Play Session which ended in a phonics lesson so that the parents could see how we learn our phonics. The children loved sharing their knowledge.

Science Day - 18th January 2019

Wow! What a great day we had, lots of fantastic learning.

We began by exploring a box of Science toys which Mrs Lovell shared with us - stretchy lizards, magnets, clockwork toys, squashy snails and a kaleidescope. Everyone enjoyed investigating this box of goodies!


Next we had an important challenge to solve - Some bears were frozen inside some ice cubes and the challenge was to release the bears without breaking the ice. The children had to think of the best way to free the bears using materials on the table or thinking of another way. There was lots of good discussion and they worked out the ice would have to melt, turn back to water and then the bears could escape!
