LISTENING WALKS AROUND SCHOOL - FRIDAY, 25TH MAY
Today, we went in small groups around the school to investigate listening for and identifying different sounds. We each made our own pair of 'Listening Ears' which we wore whilst doing our 'Listening Walk'. We heard lots of different sounds; inside: - a computer ticking, children talking in a classroom, feet stamping; outside:- leaves rustling, a train, a car going brum brum, birds going tweet tweet.
FOUNDATION STAGE STREET PARTY - FRIDAY, 18TH MAY 2018
The Foundation Stage held a 'Street Party' in honour of the Royal Wedding on Saturday 19th May.
The children made Union Jack hats and fascinators to wear for the occasion, as well as their own bunting, which was displayed around the playground. An enjoyable time was had by all with comments from the children on their favourite part of the occasion being; "the party hats, the music, the cupcakes, the singing, the strawberries". Some of the children commented that it was "the best party ever."

'Tortoise' Visit to Snowflakes - Thursday, 3rd May 2018
This morning, a parent brought in two tortoises for the children to observe and handle. This visit provided the children with the opportunity to learn more about these wonderful reptiles and to ask questions. We learnt some very interesting facts about these particular tortoises;
- they can live for up to 100 years.
- they are Mediterranean tortoises.
- they are fully grown by the age of 10 years.
- they love to eat vegetables.
TALK BY KAREN GEE, AUTHOR
Today, we were very lucky to have a visit from an Author who gave a talk about the children's books which she has written. It was very exciting as we got to meet 'Dodger The Dog' who is the main character in these story books.
Science Week - 9th -16th March 2018
This week, our theme is 'Humpty Dumpty'. Today, as part of Science Week, we carried out some 'EGG-SPERIMENTS' in the classroom, using real eggs. We put our 'Humpty Dumpty' egg into water and observed what happened to the egg. Then, we added salt to the water and observed what happened to 'Humpty Dumpty'. Did he sink or did he float?
As a second 'egg-speriment', we have now put our 'Humpty Dumpty' egg into a bowl and covered him in vinegar. We are now going to see what happens to him over one or two days. Here are some photographs of us carrying out our 'egg-speriments' today.
