Bye Joe, we will miss you 😯

Governors’ Visioning, with crisps, dips and wine!

We shared our work to [...]

Family Group Fun learning about Relationships!

So….how can you make blood?

Today, class 4 have been learning about the composition and features of blood. So we made 'blood' with strawberries (red blood cells), mini marshmallows (white blood cells), sprinkles (platelets) and pineapple juice (plasma) we then blended it and drank it. Great fun....and don't be worried if your child came home saying that drank 'blood' yesterday 😉  

A lovely morning with class one and stepping stones!

On Friday morning, Stepping Stones came in to visit class one. The class one children performed a song to Stepping Stones, and then we all made our own shaker instrument! We came back together at the end to play the song together and use our shakers! It was great fun! :)

Some lovely photos on the blog so make sure you click through to the gallery. It was lovely spending time on the [...]
