Our School Council… on food.

Our School Council meetings take place every month so that I can share my thoughts and make some decisions alongside representatives from every class.  They, in turn, read minutes back to the rest of their class and discuss the items we spoke about. For a while now, some of the year 6 children have made comments about portion sizes being [...]

Double Trouble!

This week we have started looking at multiplication. Reception have been learning how to double numbers! We've been using our doubling machine to help us. We also went outside and used different objects to show doubles, we each had a go at writing the number sentence to go with it. Year 1s have been building arrays. We started looking at [...]

Willow structures…

I wonder what the children will think of the willow structures that started to get woven together yesterday, up in the Forest Village? Thanks to Holly, Ted, Mandy, Mark and Pete for spending time in the cold, up behind Stepping Stones. The whole place is coming along beautifully! :-)

Which material works best as an umbrella?

In Science we have been learning about materials. We wanted to find out which materials were waterproof. We came up with an experiment to find the best material to use as an umbrella. We tested; paper, card, tissue, paper-towel, fabric and plastic. We each made our own predictions before we started. 'My prediction is that the cardboard is waterproof' 'My [...]

Class 1 actually go to SPACE!

Yesterday, Class 1 had a real life (virtual) trip to Space!! Thank you to Holly in Stepping Stones who brought in her virtual reality headset! We each had a go at using the headset and it was amazing to see all of the planets, stars and even some satellites! We then had a go at drawing our own 'Space observation' [...]

Class 1 take a ride on The Polar Express!

We started our morning with a snowball fight in the hall! Well done to Bodhi who was the last man standing! We then went back to class 1 and took our seats on The Polar Express. We went on a long journey through snowy mountains and in dark tunnels...all the way to The North Pole! Halfway through our trip we [...]

The state of this stable…!

I bet if Mary and Joseph had managed to get a room, the Inn would've cleared up before they arrived? They'll have to put up with a bit off a mess tonight. (Mike, where's your Hoover?)

Crib On The Green…

So Mary and Joseph were at church this morning, and so were a lot of the community, as well as some coffee and cake too.  I'm sure Mary just wanted a bit of breathing space in her condition, bless her, but after a few chocolate brownies and a bit of a give-away of the story sung by the school chidren, [...]

Single-Use Prayers? Never!

That tough question about whether to laminate!? Written by children this week, these prayers will be displayed on the Crib, on the Green, on Sunday. They're going to need to be weather proof so the community can come and read them and pray about their what they say. Do come along as it's always a lovely community service... and our [...]

Dinosaur masks!

I hope you weren't too scared when you picked your dinosaur up from school today! We had great fun this afternoon making dinosaur masks. It was really tricky cutting out the different parts, but everyone had a really good go! Some decided to make a triceratops, some wanted to add 'sharp teeth' for a T-Rex! We hope they didn't get [...]
