EYFS Trip to All Things Wild
The children had a fantastic time today at All Things Wild and the weather was kind to us too! We saw real animals and listened to lots of dinosaur facts throughout the day. We panned for sharks teeth, stroked a woolly mammoth and took a sensory walk in our bare feet! We had a fossil talk, enjoyed ice-cream lollies and obviously had time to play! Thank you parent helpers you were fantastic!

Class RA Well-Being Week
During the week beginning 20th May we had a whole school well-being week. Our focus was on both physical and mental health which are both essential to learning. Class RA had a fun and exhilarating week which included many activities. We made healthy food face wraps for snack time, enjoyed story times outside in the sunshine and we were introduced to yoga which is great for calming ourselves down. The children would like to continue yoga in our final term. We joined class RB for a fantastic, lively zumba session and spent some calmer time planting flowers, tomatoes and strawberries as well as testing our fine motor skills with some colourful weaving. As the sun continued to shine we took time out to practice for sports day. We ended the week with an ice lolly treat which we know rehydrates our brains and helps with our learning!

Class RA Easter Gardens
This week we linked our RE session to forest school. The children have been learning the Easter story and are beginning to recognise significant Christian symbols used during Holy Week. Our forest leader Mrs Mills showed us some impressive knotting skills as she helped us to make crosses for our Easter gardens.

EYFS Science Week
Our 'mini' scientists enjoyed our investigations and experiments this week. Did you know you can make a rainbow with sweets and water? We had to run a test afterwards to make sure the sweets still tasted the same! We all had a fantastic time inside the planetarium finding out all about shapes in space. The graphics were fabulous and the children were transfixed as they experienced the awe and wonder in space.

EYFS & Y1 Fun For Comic Relief
EYFS joined Yr1 for a fun filled day in aid of Comic Relief. The four classes mixed together throughout the day and enjoyed arts and crafts, dancing and icing bonkers biscuits. There was a see of red as we danced our way through playtime knowing we had raised money for good causes. Thank you parents for your donations.

Class RA Forest Fun!
Our last two weeks in forest school have seen mud, mud glorious mud and we have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy and creating our own land art.

World Book Day 2019 Class RA & 6W
Class RA arrived with their favourite books. They enjoyed a day of reading, celebrating authors, illustrators and most importantly fostering a love of reading! In the afternoon we paired up with the Y6 pupils in class 6W and enjoyed listening and reading to each other. School has now started the 200 million minutes reading challenge!

Shrove Tuesday in EYFS
In R.E. today we have been learning about Lent. We found out that Pancake Day is also called Shrove Tuesday. Did you know that Shrove Tuesday is always the Tuesday before Lent begins. We now know that Lent is a time when Christians are getting ready for Easter. We enjoyed yummy pancakes for our snack time and had fun running pancake races!

Freddie Fox's Forest Frolics!
Class RA were so excited today as it was our first forest school session in the beautiful February sunshine! Our forest leader Mrs Mills introduced us to Freddie Fox. He is teaching us how to stay safe in forest school. We have to remember NO pick, NO lick and BE CAREFUL with that stick! We enjoyed exploring the forest area and had a fun filled afternoon collaging our forest journey, making tree rubbings and being inquisitive environmental detectives! We used our imagination and made a new home for Freddie Fox as well as spotting lots of creepy crawlies which linked in nicely with our topic ‘In the Garden’. We can’t wait for next week's session!
