Reception have been on a very exciting trip to the Discovery Museum to launch our ‘Toys Through Time’ topic. The children started the day by completing a toy trail around the museum and having great fun exploring the science exhibition. After lunch the children took part in a workshop where they solved clues to find missing toys, listened to a story called, ‘Lost in the Toy Museum’ and then looked at a range of toys to see whether they were from the past or the present. The children were exceptionally well behaved and represented our school so beautifully. I would also like to say a big thank you to our parent helpers, we hope you enjoyed the day as much as the children did!
Today the children came into school wearing their own clothes to express themselves as part of Children’s Mental Health Week!
On Monday afternoon we had so much fun at our Christmas party! We got dressed up, danced, played party games and ate delicious party food!
Today, the children from Reception, Year 1, and Year 2 showcased their Nativity play titled ‘Whoops-a-Daisy Angel.’ The children exhibited excellence as they sang, narrated and portrayed the story of The Nativity.
Well done Infants, we are all very proud of you!
On Friday morning the children walked to the Post Office to post the letters they had written to Santa.
Reception had a fantastic morning on Tuesday at the Urban Factory where they took part in an exciting coordination challenge. The children had to complete lots of challenges that put their balance, agility and coordination to the test! The children had so much fun and! Thank you to our lovely parent helpers who accompanied us on the trip, it is very much appreciated.
In Advent, as we wait and prepare for the coming of Jesus, the children have been invited to join our special project called ‘The Travelling Crib’. Starting this week, each child will take turns bringing home a pack to share with their families.
This is to help us remember the journey Mary and Joseph made to Bethlehem, and as a family take time to stop and think about the true meaning of Christmas.
Children in KS1 will bring home The Christmas Story, while children in KS2 will bring home a book called ‘When the Stars Shone Bright, A Christmas Tale’ telling the Christmas story from the perspective of the three wise men.
This week the children had a very exciting visitor called Steve who is our local Community Police Officer. Steve spoke to the children about his important job and what he does to look after us. The children asked some great questions and some even decided that they would like to be Police Officers when they grow up!
Today we had some special visitors talk to us about the importance of washing our hands, brushing our teeth and eating healthy food.
Reception had a fantastic time at Marine Park this morning! They had great fun playing on the park, playing with skips and balls on the field and building fairy gardens in the woodland area. The children then enjoyed a delicious ice cream to cool down and got to ride on the park train. What a busy morning! Next, it was the highlight of the day – lunch! Reception enjoyed a lovely lunch in the park with their friends before heading back to school. The children were beautifully behaved and made all of the staff incredibly proud.
I would like to say a big thank you to our wonderful parent helpers and a HUGE thank you to Smith’s Seaview Cafe for very kindly supplying the children’s ice creams free of charge.
