Science in Reception

This week we have been learning the reversible changes in freezing water.  We filled 5 balloons with coloured water and placed them in different places around the classroom and playground.  We put one in our fridge, one in our freezer and three outside around the playground.  We have been checking on them throughout the week to see what changes have been happening.  Today we checked and only the balloon in the freezer had frozen so we opened it up to have a closer look.  We have left the others to see if any changes occur over the weekend.  Take a peek at our ice ball that we passed around today.  Ask your child if they can remember any great words to describe it and let us know what they say by leaving us a comment.

McMillan Coffee Morning

A huge thank you to everyone who were able to attend the coffee morning today.  We had an amazing turn out which was so lovely to see.   Can we also say a big thank you to everyone who has bought raffle tickets over the last few weeks.  We have raised a fantastic amount of money (which is still being counted and we will update you with a total later)

Please enjoy looking at a few photos from the morning.

Reception Class Green Day October 2016

On October 7th 2016 we had our annual Green Day.  Reception class enjoyed a day packed with activities.  We learnt about road safety with Lollypop Linda & Julie. We did some outside learning with Mrs Jordan making art pictures using leaves. We did food tasting with Lynda from ASDA, learnt about safety of dogs with Mrs Crouch and planted potatoes in our outside planters.

Easter Egg Colouring Competition

Foundation class held a colouring competition that was open to all students to raise money for Caritas.  We had lots of fantastic entries and it was very hard to choose.  We had winners for Foundation, Year 1&2, Year 3&4 and Year 5&6 with 14 runner up prizes (2 from each class). Every child who took part also received a sweet to say thank you.  We raised an amazing £62 for the charity so we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part.  Please enjoy looking at the video which features some of the amazing works of art.  (Please note: not all pictures were returned for photographing)
