Fire Safety in Reception!

Reception have been finding out all about FIRE SAFETY today!

This morning we went down to the Secret Garden where Mrs Crawford made a big bonfire using her flint and steel. We talked about how fires start and we shared lots of ideas about why we need to be very careful so that we stay safe around fires. We learned a new song ‘Matches, lighters, DO NOT TOUCH! They will hurt you very much!’
We even made some fire safety posters to put out around the fire pit.
Riley “The fire only goes out when there’s no oxygen left”
Emily “It sounds like popping candy!”
Jacob “The fire sounds like a rattle snake!”

Dear parents,

After the success of the Maths Cafe in the Autumn Term, Year 2 would like to invite you to attend an English Cafe on Friday 26th January 2018 from 9.00am until 10.30am.

This will give you the opportunity to see what your children are being taught across all areas of English.

We hope as many parents can attend as possible and look forward to seeing you then.

Nursery A’s Self Service Snack Area

In nursery we have set up a self service snack area. Whenever we are feeling hungry we are allowed to make ourselves a slice of toast. We know the importance of washing our hands before eating, we are really sensible when using the toaster. We know that the toaster uses electricity and gets very hot! We are becoming more independent and can butter our own toast. Yum!


Super Scientific Explorers!

In Year 2 we have been learning about Grace Darling in our ‘Time Travel’ topic.  We know lots of facts about Grace Darling and how she was such a hero.  We acted out the Grace Darling story by imagining that our boat had capsized after hitting a rock and then thought about the terrifying experience the passengers would have had whilst waiting to be rescued in the freezing, choppy water.

Then we had to use our explorer skills. We had been sent a mission from Grace Darling which was to explore different materials which would be suitable to float a brand new boat.  The materials we explored were straws, plastic lids, plastic bags, cubes, card, and polystyrene.  We had to work as a team to build a boat which would float.  We then placed the boats in a tray of water and tested them to find out if they would float or sink.  We found that we were fabulous explorers and most of our boats floated.

You would all make fantastic scientists, Year 2!

Year One in the Secret Garden

Today we all got wrapped up in our warm coats, popped on our wellington boots, picked up our clipboards, recording sheets and pencils and headed out to explore in ‘The Secret Garden’.  It was quite muddy but we did not let that put us off our special mission which was to find images of bugs which Mrs Cockburn had hidden amongst the plants, trees and grass. We hunted high and low and drew a picture and wrote a description of each bug image that we found.  Maybe one day we could write books about wildlife just like Sir David Attenborough and teach people about the amazing natural world.

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back!

We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and would like to wish you a very happy new year.

The children have all settled back into school very well and have shown us that they have great expectations for the year ahead.  We can’t wait to see what your children are going to achieve within the next term.
