Buccaneers first cooking session

On Friday the children used letter cutters to identify and stamp the initial sound of their name in the biscuits we made. 

This was also an opportunity to talk about the importance of washing our hands. 

Children supported each other to locate numbers on the scale and weigh ingredients, developing team work and friendships, as well as practising taking turns. 

New beginnings 

Here are some of the things our new class have been enjoying in their first week of school. 

Buccaneers play Kidditch!

Super fun at the end of term! 

Everyone was engaged and involved playing this muggle version of quidditch. The guy leading the activity was excellent with the children, keeping them all focused and on task. 

Thank you to Mrs Fairhurst for arranging.  

Foundation Gardening Day

A huge thank you to those parents and children who gave up their Saturday to join us tidying up our outside area today. We weeded, pruned, raked, swept and even managed to plant a few seeds. The amount of work achieved with a few helpers was truly amazing and I lost count of how many bags we filled. 

Although it was hard work, it was a really nice way to spend time with families and an opportunity to get to know each other a little better, especially our new children joining us in September. It would be nice to make this a regular event, maybe once a term, as with regular maintenance the garden would not need such a major overhaul. As you are aware, all schools are facing financial challenges with cuts to resources and funding.  The foundation garden is an extension of our classroom. With your help we can continue to make this a safe and stimulating environment for children to learn. Please look out for future dates. 

Four Nations 

11th July

As part of our geography, learning about the four nations that make up the United Kingdom, we have been thinking about foods from the different countries. In our final geography lesson children tasted four of the traditional foods associated with each country.
