School Life during Week 25th May

5th June

The children in Reception and Year One have had a fairy themed week.   We read the story  Freddie and the Fairy by Julia Donaldson and learnt some important messages.  Ask your child if they can remember them.   They have also  made fairy houses, doors, wands, windmills and painted fairy stones.  The Fairy Queen left us a letter everyday and even some treats on some days.  The Fairy Queen also left behind some fairy dust so all their wishes come true.
The boys in Y5 and Y6 have been very creative today and made an amazing den using branches and twigs.  Well done boys!
We hope you enjoy the photographs.

Last week the children in Reception and Year 1 looked at different countries around the world. We visited Africa, India, Japan and Spain. The children heard an Indian folk tale – The Tiger Child, painting Japanese numbers, as well as looking at African and Rangoli patterns in maths. In the afternoons, the children created some African art and learned about different festival around the world, such as ‘Holi’ and ‘Kodomo no Hi’. Linked to these festival the children decorated Indian elephants and made carp kites, which they enjoyed flying during outdoor provision.

Robots

Week of 27th April

For the  last few days, we have had a robot theme in Reception and Year 1.  We read No-Bot (The robot with no bottom) by Sue Kendra, drew our favourite part from the story and made split pin robots.  We then made 3D robots during outdoor play.  We have also made Numicon robots to practise our addition and number bond skills and used our programming skills to instruct the Bee-Bots.  We have had lots of fun and as treat, we made buns.

Reception / Year 6 – Christmas Party

The Reception boys and girls would like to say a HUGE thank you to their Year 6 PALS for the Christmas party that they hosted yesterday. The Y6 Pupils devised games, which they thought the Reception pupils would enjoy, they arranged party prizes and songs, which they would like dancing to. The most special part of the day was the individualised Christmas Eve boxes that each child in Year 6 lovingly made for a Reception pupil. The Reception children loved these and are so excited to open them on Christmas Eve. We hope the Y6 children liked the Christmas decoration we made for them just as much. We greatly appreciate all the thought that went into planning the Christmas party and the time spent ensuring the children had fun. Everyone had a brilliant afternoon and we can’t wait for our next PALS event.

Snow Globe

On Wednesday 11th December the children of Reception, Year One and Two were entertained with a play based on Hans Christian Anderson’s stories. It was a magical, storytelling experience of the well-known classics and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Father Christmas Stops by……..
