Year 1 joined with Year 2 to enjoy an extremely noisy, energetic and fun party!
We had a surprise visit from Santa who gave each child an exciting parcel.
We played party games and then ate our party food. Full of sugar and energy the children went home and the teachers had a sit down!
Elf on a shelf
This cheeky chap jumped into Leah's school bag this morning and she didn't realise! Whilst in our classroom he emptied all our books onto the floor but worse was yet to come...
He went into Mrs Earley's cupboard and helped himself to her secret stash of chocolate!!
Mrs Cordingly took him into her office where he had to write out lines and think about his behaviour.
We enjoyed taking part in a whole school Diwali celebration.
We designed our Rangoli pattern, using Purple Mash and then choose one for the whole class to colour.
It was quite a messy activity!
We asked Lee Call, who takes our school photographs, to bring his Drone to school. We had such an exciting time as he took aeiral pictures of our Rangoli patterns.
Come and have a look at our display in the hall.
A big thank to all the parents who came to our Science Morning.
The children had a wonderful time investigating the 5 senses by doing different interactive activities. Our scientific questions included `Does everybody like the same smell?` `Does our smell affect how we taste food?` `Do our eyes trick us?` `Which part of our body sends the best message to our brain to tell it what object it is?` `Do all surfaces sound the sam when we tap them?`.
The time flew by and we all learnt such a lot, including how to collect data and read results.
As we rush towards the end of half term, we decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and go for an Autumnal Walk in our Conservation Area.
It was great to see so many grown ups at our information meeting. Please find the presentation saved below and if there is anything which requires further clarification, do please ask!
