Growing our own beanstalks!

Today we have started a science experiment called 'bean in a bag'. We each put a bean into a sealed bag with a piece of damp kitchen roll, we then hung our bags up around the class. Over the next few days, our beans should begin to grow! We have been wondering if there will be a magic bean...maybe we [...]

A giant in class one!

In class one we have been reading the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We found what looks like a giant's footprint in our classroom! We decided to measure it to see how big the foot was. We measured it to be 27 blocks long - and Emmie used a measuring tape and found it was 54cm! That's a very big [...]

Lunch time for the little ones!

After a tiring morning, playing lions in the sand pit (that's Isla) and princesses in the Wendy House, the children would have been hungry! Lunch today was ever so slightly early so that we could show our new Reception children how the lunch hall works and help them choose. ALL of them said please and thank you too, albeit very, [...]

What a wonderful 1st day in Class 1 – Welcome everyone!

A VERY BIG welcome to all the new children in Class 1 today. They were absolutely fantastic and really enjoyed their first morning.

We can't wait [...]

Welcome to Mrs Ivall and Miss Smale!

Shift-up afternoons give a great opportunity for our children to see and experience [...]

Farmer Pete visits Class 1 to sort out their 10 sheep!

Class 1 are getting very confident with their number bonds to 10 with the help of Farmer Pete! We performed our wonderful number bonds song to Stepping Stones with the help of Henry's Daddy Martin, who morphed into our very own Farmer Pete who kept losing his sheep! Thank you Martin for your bravery!!

Here are just a few of the great ideas for themes that they suggested:   People who help us - fire station, police station, doctors surgery, hospital, school   Things [...]

More visitors to Classes 1 & 2 !

G'day! The 'ankle biters' in Classes 1 & 2 have been so lucky to have so many brilliant visitors coming in to talk to us about Australia. Isla from Class 4, tried to out-do her dad by continuing the Luhr tour of 'Down Under'! She did an absolutely amazing job with her prepared Powerpoint and table of Australian toys, information [...]
