Christmas Wreaths

What a lovely morning we have had making wreaths for the church. The children got to cover their wreaths with pine, teasels, holly and ivy. Thanks so much to Rob and Josh from the National Trust for organising such a fun Christmas activity :-)  

An ‘moo’-arvelous morning at the dairy farm!

We learnt lots at North Hole farm this morning! We can now talk about how milk is made and how intelligent cows (and technology) are - they no longer need us humans to get involved with the milking process! We got to see this 'robot' in action. We were amazed at how the cows patiently queued up to be milked and [...]

Class 1’s exciting week :-)

Well we have had a busy week in Class 1! On Thursday, we made our own delicious smoothies and the children were very grown up with trying different flavours, even though some of them thought they may not like the taste! Most of the children were pleasantly surprised by the yummy flavours that we could taste and enjoyed trying new [...]

Class 1 Fruit Tasting Afternoon

The children were AMAZING and tried everything! :-) They were very grown up and even had a go at trying things that they weren't sure they liked. They often surprised themselves by [...]

A Din’awesome Day at the Park

Today was the big dinosaur day and the children certainly came in excited! I think I can speak on behalf of everybody (children and grown ups) that today has just been so much fun! We saw a fantastic sea lion show, lots of scary dinosaurs, many different animals at the animal show (some of which we could stroke, if we [...]

It’s been a fun packed week in Class 1!

What a busy week it's been! Class 1 have been practising their letters, sounds and numbers in a variety of ways. We've been enjoying our new number game where we race each other to find the correct number being called out. We're getting very quick at lining up our numbers too! We have also been using Numicon to find lots [...]

We have been practising our movements outside where we have experimented with different ways of travelling [...]
