This term Dragonflies will be learning all about food. They will be leaning about how food it grown, following and creating recipes and food from different parts of the world. 

Here are some pictures of Dragonfly Class from the primary picnic, immersing themselves in themselves in the stories that will shape their learning this term.

Here is a pupil moving tangerines between baskets from the story Handa’s Surprise.

Here a pupil is making marks in toothpaste with his toothbrush from the story ‘Ketchup on your cornflakes.’

Here a pupil is making a cup of tea from the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea.’

We look forward to lots more exciting experiences this term.

Giraffe Class – Dig, Dig, Dig

21st September 2017

We have had a very exciting time in Giraffes as we have started out new topic – Dig, Dig, Dig. We discovered mystery eggs left in the garden outside and then came back on a Monday morning to find our classroom trashed and an egg missing! Later we found footprints and CCTV footage that bseemed to suggest that dinosaurs might be responsible for the damage! To top it all we were visited by a Tyrranosaurus Rex and her baby the same week which caused much excitement. Since then we have been finding out more about dinosaurs through a variety of sources including non-fiction books and using the contents and index pages. We plan to make some moving dinosaurs in the next few weeks to protect our remaining eggs.

Flamingos Yum Yum Topic

21st September 2017

Flamingo class visited a café as part of their Yum Yum topic.  They ordered food and drinks from a menu and got to look inside the kitchen to see how everything was made.  Back at school children have been reliving their experience in their role play café.

Children’s Parade

21st July 2017

Thank you so much to all the families, staff and ex pupils with their families who came and joined in with the children’s parade this year.

 A special thanks to Mary Allen who helped

I’m sure we all agree it was a fantastic parade and stickman did us proud as did all our wonderful children and their siblings.

The weather was wonderful and if you didn’t see the parade stickman is now in residence in the reception area at school.

Next year the theme has already been decided its going to be Harry Potter and all things magical and we are going to be a dragon.

I hope you can all come along and support your school.

Trip to Lodge Hill Activity Centre

21st July 2017

On the 12th July the Junior and one Unique hub class had a fantastic day at Lodge Hill Activity Centre. The children got the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities which included High and Low Zipline, abseiling, climbing, sno-tubing, mountain biking and Karting. There were squeals of nervous excitement ringing through the trees for the whole day as children challenged themselves to undertake activities that they initially thought too scary or too difficult. It was amazing to see the pride on the faces of the children and their accompanying adults after they had made it down the abseiling tower or up the climbing wall. It was a brilliant day during which many of the children tried and succeeded at new activities.

Washbrooks Farm Trip

21st July 2017

During the summer term the children in Primary were joined by some of their friends in the Unique hub on a trip to Washbrooks Farm.

They had a wonderful time meeting all of the animals and got to stroke many animals including goats, rabbits and dogs.

Everyone went on a tractor ride around the farm to see  the bigger animals including the woolly Alpacas.

The children enjoyed exploring the play park especially bouncing on the big pillow and the pirate ship!
