We have been so impressed with the t-shirt designs around school today. Below are the winners from the different classes, voted for by the children. Our overall winner, picked by Mrs Ponsonby is . . . Brooke!

We will make sure all of our winners get their prizes on Monday morning – well done everyone!

Thank you to everyone who wore red, designed a shirt or made a contribution to Comic Relief.

Caring for our pets 🐶🐾

In expedition this week we have been thinking about how we care for living things. In our crew session this morning the children thought about what a dog needs to be happy and healthy. They came up with some great ideas. 💡 Great team work skills too! 😁

Kindness is everything 💞

Today a little girl in Class 1 chose to make something for another child in our class, something she knew he would like. She made him smile so widely and it really touched my heart. Be kind, always xx

Reception visit Boston Park Farm

Yesterday we had a brilliant time at Boston Park Farm. There were many different activities for us to do and lots of fun to be had! We saw alpacas, pigs, cows, sheep, goats, ponies, chickens, turkeys, rabbits and guinea pigs!

We enjoyed feeding the animals. Children learned to hold their hands out flat to allow the animals to eat the food without nibbling their fingers.

Farmer David took us for a ride in the trailer pulled along by his huge red tractor. We then had the chance to look at the other farm machinery and have a sit on the other tractors. There was a ginormous combine harvester, the children aren’t even as tall as the front tyre!

We ate our lunch in the dining hall and played together outside.

We also had great time creating some pictures of the lambs using crayons and popcorn!

We were so proud of how polite and well behaved the children were. They were all so sensitive to the animals as they were handling them and fantastic representations of our school.

Well done Reception children!

Fee, Fi, Fo Fum…

I smell the blood of an Englishman! Wow, what an amazing week of learning in Reception this week. We have been reading the story Jack and the Beanstalk and had a great time exploring this further in our play. The children in Class 1 and 2 have been making giants out of play dough and construction materials, moulding magic beans out of clay, measuring leaves, creating their own artwork about the story and producing incredibly detailed story maps. I am so proud of how hard the children are working. Well done Reception!

Class 1 Rock 🎶🎵🎸💿

Over the past few weeks class 1 have really enjoyed using the big bricks to make a stage, instruments and microphones. They have been putting on some very entertaining shows! Ghostbusters and Greatest Showman have been particular favourites. Class 1 has talent 😁

Working Hard and Having Fun

Class 1 have been enjoying reading in pairs this week. They have supported and encouraged one another, which has been really lovely to see!

We have also had great fun with Coach Josh and Coach Ellie from Kixx. The children all turned into pirates! They listened beautifully and their smiles just show how much they enjoyed it!

Crew Outdoors

We enjoyed getting outside this morning. We thought about the importance of working as a team. Our mission was to make a bridge that went over the lava! The children did a great job 👏
