We had a very exciting start to our new Feel Good Friday topic 'Community and Careers' when police dogs Dixon and Isla came to school with their handler.

Our Busy Week 13th January 2020

This week we continued to find out about different careers when Mrs Lynch and Mrs Williams came to talk to the children about their jobs. The children were very impressed that Mrs Williams had been to the Disney University when she worked at Disneyland in Florida. They enjoyed trying on the caps and gowns that she brought with her. Mrs Lynch works for The Yorkshire Ambulance Service as a 999 call handler and first responder. The children thought driving an ambulance was very exciting.

Congratulations to Henry for receiving the presentation award this week.

Our Busy week 20th January 2020

The Year 1s are thoroughly enjoying their climbing experience and are getting braver each week!

Thank to all the parents who were able to come to our latest stay and play session. The children enjoyed playing different number games with their friends and grown ups.
The children enjoyed listening to Mr Caine talk about his job as a paramedic and had lots of questions to ask him. One of the highlights was seeing his car with the lights and sirens on!

Our Busy Week 27th January 2020

This week we have been reading the story 'The Room on the Broom'.


The children were very excited when they were able to ask 'the witch' questions about the story e.g. Why did your broom break?

                Were you frightened when the beast came out of the mud?

                Do you know lots of magic words?




The reception children have created pictures of the witch using their colour mixing skills to create the background. They carefully cut out a picture of the witch and used pastels to draw the stars.




They also wrote a sentence about the story. You can read some below. The children are trying really hard to use their phonics to segment the words.



I can see a cat and a dog on a broom.




I can see it is evening. I can see a dog on the ground.

Our Busy Week 3rd February 2020

Willow Class took part in 2 very exciting activities on Friday.

In the morning Toby and Millie, 2 donkeys, from the Wonkey Donkey Sanctuary came to school. The children were very excited to meet 2 of the donkeys they had raised money for in the Autumn term. They found out that donkey's like to eat hay, straw and best of all carrots! Millie and Toby are best friends and enjoy playing tug of war and football together!

Here are some photos of the children meeting the donkeys.



After dinner the children took part in a tennis taster session. They showed great skill bouncing, catching and controlling the ball on their racket.

This week we have been listening to Night on a Bare Mountain by Mussorsky. It is a piece of music about witches meeting up and getting up to all kinds of witchy capers. Watch our video below to see our expressive response to this music.
