For the 3rd time this year, we have the highest attendance and have won the attendance trophy!
After reading the story 'Scarecrow's Wedding',we decided to make our own scarecrows and to have a "wedding" like they did in the story. We had spoke about how the groom waits for the bride as she is usually late, then there is a church service where special promises are made and then there is a special party afterwards to celebrate. The children even threw scarecrow confetti (straw). This then sparked an idea, the children thought we could have a wedding at St Peter's Church as many of the children haven't been to a church at that church.
We have had lots of fun this morning! A few of the year 6 children came into our class to interact with the children. This week we have been reading the book 'Scarecrows Wedding' so we decided to make our own scarecrow! The children have thoroughly enjoyed this fun filled morning!
In the sunshine developing fine and gross motor skills!
The children have had a lovely morning in the sunshine developing their fine and gross motor skills. They have been using the bikes and the scooters, they have been playing on the castle and on the woodland path, they have been dressing up as sailors on the 'friend-ship' and have been playing with lots of equipment on the resources trolley. There has been lots of happy smiling faces and lots of sun tans developing! I hope you enjoying looking at these photographs!
Life Education Bus
The children have had an exciting afternoon on the 'Life Education' bus. They found lots of information about their body and staying healthy. They also met Harold the Giraffe who showed them how to look after themselves and what to do when they are sad. The children had lots of fun playing games and singing songs. I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs below.
A fantastic worship!
Today Class 2 performed their worship. They discussed how people are important because of the jobs they do such as doctors, police officers and lollypop people. They then discussed how Jesus found everybody important. They retold some of the stories where Jesus had a meal with Zaccheus, who was a tax collector and it made him give all the money back he had stolen. Jesus also talked to people as they were working such as Peter and Andrew the fishermen. The class then told the message that everybody is important no matter how old you are, how much money you have or what football team you support. Thank you to all those parents who came to support us.
Today the children and staff came to school in wigs and wacky hair to raise money for Click Sargent - a children's charity that raises money for children in hospital. Thank you to all parents that made the effort I can imagine some hairstyles took along time!
The chicks have hatched!
We have had an exciting few days! The children have finally discovered what is in the eggs……chicks! The children have had a lovely afternoon looking after and holding the chicks. The children all then wrote a sentence to describe what they looked like. I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs below.
Alan and Kim
Yesterday afternoon we had a lovely visit from Alan and his guide dog Kim, who we have met previously. Alan came to talk to the children about the importance of having a guide dog. Alan is deaf and severely blind so it is essential he has a guide dog. Kim has saved Alan’s life three times whilst trying to cross a road. Alan couldn’t see or hear a car, in particular the new hybrid car as they are very quiet, so Kim stopped in front of Alan ensuring he didn’t take another step. Alan explained that in a morning Kim will wake him up by running fast and jumping on him and he very often licks his face to give him a kiss! Kim’s first job in a morning is to pick up dirty clothes and put them into the washing basket, he then takes the washing basket to the washing machine and sorts the clothes into dark and white clothing (I wish I had a dog who could do that!) He can even sort Alan’s shoes into left and right shoes – he has a habit of hiding all the left shoes! If the phone rings, Kim will take the phone to Alan so he can answer the phone. Kim has taken Alan on ships, trains, buses, coaches and even a plane!
Enjoying the Sunshine!
After working hard during Guided read, the children have had a lovely afternoon playing outside with the mud kitchen making mud pies, playing with the sand, planting new beans and generally having fun!
Kindness and Tidy Up Award
Ashton has won the kindness award this week! He is always kind and polite to other children and members of staff.
Max has won the tidy up award this week! He has made sure the garden was tidy after he had being playing in it!
Exciting new kitchen!
This afternoon the children saw our amazing new outside kitchen! A very kind man called Glen offered to make us one! The children have had lots of fun pretending to cook, serve each other food and even wash up! Thank you so much to Glen for all his hard work!
This afternoon the children were treated to 4 special visitors - 3 week old rabbits! Mrs Parker's husband brought in their baby rabbits for the children to stroke! The children were very sensible asking lots of questions about the rabbits. A big thank you to Mr and Mrs Parker for organising the lovely afternoon.
