Thank you to all the children who brought books into school for the Brize Norton Book Swap. The hall was jam packed with preloved stories, non-fiction texts, comics and poetry books- the children were spoilt for choice! We all enjoyed a thoroughly wonderful afternoon drinking squash, eating biscuits and reading for pleasure... what more could anybody want?! A huge thank you to the older children for looking after our younger pupils and sharing a book with them. Mrs Mills
Well done to our Foundation Stage children who performed magnificently to parents and the rest of the school in their first class sharing assembly this morning.
Parents then joined us in our classroom to take part in our animal junk model workshop. We have been learning about 3d shapes and Mrs Fairhurst was impressed with the children’s ability to name the shapes they were using as well as some being able to explain their properties.
Thank you to those parents who helped tidy up after all our creativity and a big thank you to Miss Hill, Mrs. Malcahy and Mrs. Sutherland for all their support in class.
World Book Day
We all had fun coming in to school in our favourite book character costumes. Children used their book characters in our writing today.
In the afternoon we visited the book cafe, where everyone was able to choose a new book, as well as enjoy a drink and biscuit. Many thanks to Mrs Mills for organising and to Year 4 children for reading to the foundation children.
Children who brought in their favourite story books shared with the class what they liked about their book.
Signs of Spring
We talked about signs of Spring that we may be starting to spot and some of the children chose to work together and hunt for corresponding pictures around the site. Others were happy jumping in muddy puddles and hunting for worms! It was lovely to see a small group in our 'fairy village' making stick houses and leaf beds for the fairies and elves too.
Music with Mrs Reynolds.
This week we have had Mrs Reynolds come in to lead a music session. Children enjoyed joining in with singing, actions and moving to music. Mrs Reynolds will be visiting us on Tuesday afternoons this half term.
