Lemur Class Have Been Building Forts

16th September 2016




We created a number of forts to keep ourselves safe from the weather this week. We all chose which material we wanted to make it out of and then tested it by blowing REALLY hard on it.

Some of our forts fell down, so we had to improve them!

This week in Lemur Class

10th May 2016

Lemurs have been looking at simulators this week and how we can control and interact with different things to get a desired response. It may just look like we are playing games, but like all good lemurs we are really hard at work (playing and having fun)!


Sports Relief

18th March 2016


Seahorse class took part in a ‘Sponsored Splash’ for Sports Relief.  The children used their arms and legs to splash as much as they could in their swimming session.  The rest of the class were taking part in a sponsored ‘Step’ and a sponsored ‘Stretch’ in class and in the playground.

Other classes in the school took part in a mini mile and assault course in the hall to raise as much money for Sports Relief as possible.

Please remember to send your sponsor forms to school.

A big thank you to the students of Oakgrove College for helping with the events.

Class Selfie with the Elephant

Leopard class had a lovely trip to Drusillas this week. We got to meet a snake, cockroach, bearded dragon and fat tailed gerbils!  All the children were really gentle and careful when handling the animals.  We went around and saw lots of other things, especially liking the monkeys and the penguins.

At the end of the day we all had a ride on the Thomas train!

Good day all round!

A Week in Seahorses

1st March 2016

Mashrafi smelling herbs

Mashrafi smelling herbs

This week in Seahorse class we have been getting back into our classroom routines after the holidays. We had a birthday party on Tuesday afternoon for Sara who came in to her “Surprise”. We are continuing to focus on our Creation Story and the staff were keen to see if the children had remembered their favorite parts. On each day God created different things and we have different objects, sounds, and smells to explore depending on what God created. So on day 1 he created day and night, on day 2 he created the land and the sea. The children loved it and they did remember their favorite parts of the story and Mashrafi remembered to count down to turning the lights off to make the classroom dark.
