Lost and Found

Our new Year R children have had a really wonderful first full week at school and it has been so lovely to see so many smiling faces.

Year 3/4 have also been looking for clues but this time as reading detectives as they solve the mysteries hidden in the books of Anthony Browne.

Evacuation Day!

We have had a wonderful start back after our week off for the half term holiday. Year R have been very busy studying shapes, learning more about dinosaurs and have been exploring magnetism.

A Prehistoric Adventure

This half term we have been learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and how our ancestors lived during these times. Our best bits of the topic so far are: making clay Beaker pots, carving Stone Age weapons from soap, making Woolly Mammoths and painting Stone Henge. We are super excited about our dress up day tomorrow. Joel is going to be a Blacksmith from the Iron Age (he already has the anvil made), Mia is going to be an Iron Age girl and her costume has a leopard print pattern and Barney is dressing as a Stone Age caveman. This term has been a 10 out of 10 because it has been fun, exciting, interesting and creative.
