Month: November 2016

This week…

The weather on Monday was awful and we thought we were not going to be able to attend the Year 11 performance at St. Gregory’s. However St. Gregory’s turned into our Fairy Godmother, paid for a coach, and we were whisked away to the fairy-tale land of Snow White and Cinderella. The children thoroughly enjoyed the performances especially the singing and dancing. Lewis impressed me with his clapping in time, he helped me a lot, thanks Lewis!

We also had our bedtime story this week. The children returned to school after dark to find the classroom decked with fairy lights and soft cushions. The hot chocolate was delicious, the stories were fun and the pyjamas were something else!

Remember there is no school on Friday, have fun!


Fruit salad, welly walks, The Victoria Art Gallery and raisin bread

We have had a full and exciting week this week. We have been busy in the kitchen chopping, stirring and kneading; taking walks to the local fields and woods and investigating art at The Victoria Art Gallery.

The children made a delicious and healthy fruit salad. They followed instructions well and used the knives carefully. The result was delicious! They have also made raisin bread which smelt and tasted divine. The children were able to explain how to knead the bread.

The reception children went on their first welly walk and luckily the rain held off. They found sticks, jumped in puddles and had a good run around. Their faces were rosy and glowing when they arrived back at school.

The children behaved impeccably at The Victoria Art Gallery and I am so proud of them all. We had a look at some of the art work, spotted things in portraits and had a go at creating our own. They enjoyed using sequins and feathers to add details to their self portraits, they looked like royalty!

Welcome back!

We hope you all had a fantastic break and are now ready for a new exciting term.

Our new topic is called ‘There’s more than just a Gruffalo, don’t you know?’ We will be looking at books by Julia Donaldson and investigating where the characters live and go. Please see the topic overview (in your child’s book-bag) for more details.

Next Thursday afternoon we will be visiting The Victoria Art Gallery to create some wonderful collages. If you haven’t already done so please bring in the permission slip and the money. It’s going to be fun!
