2017 - 2018
Our Christmas activities have kept us very busy. We have been learning about the Christmas story and talking about why we celebrate Christmas. We enjoyed learning to sing and sign some carols and other Christmas songs. Wrapping 'presents' challenged us, and we enjoyed giving them to our friends and watching as they opened them. Our Christmas crafts included making clay Christmas tree decorations, cutting out and decorating Christmas trees, making star photo frame decorations and making stained glass cookies. For our Christmas Full of Beans, we packed a healthy snack for Santa, helped return the presents to Santa's sleigh when they bounced off, and played snowballs with scrunched up paper. We had a visit from Santa, and one of his elves read us a story. Our sing-a-long on the penultimate day of term was a big success. Lots of families attended and enjoyed sharing Christmas activities and songs with us.
We wish you all a merry Christmas and a very happy 2018.
We took our shape fans around the school to try and match the shapes.
We went outside to help Mr Murphy and Mr Owen to plant saplings in the school grounds.
We enjoyed learning about some of the many different people who help us. We then thought about how we could help others.
We have learnt what Remembrance is all about and made poppies to help us to remember.
Please take a look at these photos to see how much we have been enjoying learning in our new outside area.
2016 - 2017
Last term we were visited by some frog spawn. We have enjoyed observing the different stages of their development and learning about the life cycle of frogs. We now have three frogs and it is nearly time to return them to their pond.
Our theme for this session was based on the sea creatures in the book 'One Lonely Sea Horse'. After a short warm-up session, using our imaginations, we moved like the sea creatures in the story.
We really enjoyed the egg hunt organised by the PTFA for our Easter celebrations. We were all very excited to receive our Easter eggs. Thank yum! Oops . . . we meant to say thank you.
Making Gifts for Mothers Day
The PTFA helped us to plant flowers in the pots we painted to make gifts for Mothers Day. We were all very proud of them. Thank you to the PTFA for helping us to do this.
We enjoy learning together and being creative in the way we use the resources in our outside area.
We are working with SASP to deliver Full of Beans. This is exciting programme for children and their parents/carers, with themed sessions designed to help children to learn about healthy living and physical activity in fun and sociable ways.
The children thoroughly enjoyed their first Full of Beans session with their parents.
Father Christmas came to school and read us a story. We all received a present and then had a drink and a biscuit.
We were very proud of all of our children for how well they joined in with observing the 2 minutes silence at 1100 hrs. We watched a slide show to help us to understand why we have Remembrance Day. We made poppies by counting out 4 petals (practicing our counting skills) and sticking them with a black circle to a lolly stick.
Melting the chocolate to make our rice crispy cakes helped us to learn about how chocolate melts when it gets warm, and how it solidifies when it cools again.
We enjoyed looking for bugs in our garden: learning to identify them (using bug charts) and how to be kind to them.
We spent lots of time practising our balancing skills on various obstacle courses in our garden area. A favourite was when we had an obstacle course set up as a jungle trail.
