People Who Help Us: Mrs Ball
Thank you to our cleaning lady, Mrs Ball, who came in to class on Friday afternoon to talk to the children about her job and how she keeps the school clean for us all. The children helped Mrs Ball to tidy the classroom and thought about what they can do to keep it nice.
People Who Help Us: Mr Lowe
Today Mr. Lowe, our school caretaker, came in to class to talk to the children about his job and all the things he does to help look after our school and keep it nice. Everyone really enjoyed helping Mr. Lowe to sweep the leaves in our garden, especially squashing them down into the bin.
People Who Help Us: Cooking
On Tuesday Anya and Catherine who cook our school dinners came in to class to talk to us about their jobs preparing, serving then clearing up after our school dinners. Children were suprised to think about how long it takes to cook up to 120 lunches!
Then on Wednesday Darren and Tammy from Roots to Food came in to work with the children to make their own Stromboli. Everyone enjoyed learning and thinking about how food helps us to stay healthy and ready to learn.

Yummy stromboli! Well done to our young chefs.
We have been talking a lot about the changes that come with the seasons and what that means for wildlife. We discussed hibernation and what this means - and also about what a nocturnal animal is. The children made animal homes for soft toys, created clay hedgehogs and built ladybird houses to hang in their garden. They have also loved using the new bug hunting kit to hunt for mini beasts! We have picked blackberries and used them to make ink for drawing - as well as saving some to have with pancakes. The children have been very busy sawing, drilling, climbing, swinging, creating and having Forest School Fun!
