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.
The children each made a bracelet today. They thought they were just having fun when really they were all learning to count 10 beads, find their own initials and using their fine motor skills threading the beads onto the string using a needle.
On Thursday 2oth December we had a very special come and surprise us by popping into school to have a chat with the children.
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.
On Friday the 11th November the whole school took part in a Remembrance service to honor all the people who sacrificed their lives during the wars past and present. Please take a moment to take a look at a short video showing Reception and Year 1 taking part.
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.
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)
On Thursday 18th June we invited Dads, Grandads and Uncles to come and enjoy a celebtration dinner with the children.
Please take a moment to have a look through some photos. (sorry if I missed you)
The Children have been learning all about toys from the olden days and comparing them to the more modern day toys that they play with now. Their assembly was fantastic and all the school and parents/grandparents who attended thoroughly enjoyed it. Well Done everyone.
The children have had a great time since we came back in January. Please take a moment to have a look at a couple of videos to see what we have been up to.
