Year One Enjoy Diversity Day!

Year One have had a fantastic afternoon in the hall learning all about Stoke on Trent, the world, different religions and cultures. The children behaved so wonderfully and asked some amazing questions. Thank you to all of the very knowledgeable children and adults in the hall that shared their amazing information with us! Take a look at our blog to find out more.

If you go down to the woods today….

You’re in for a big surprise!! We have had another magical day! We arrived in the morning to a classroom decorated with both trees and paper vines then we decided to have a wander back into the forest. When we arrived at the forest, we could not believe our eyes!!! There were benches-ready for us to sit on- but more remarkable than that…There were tiny elf clothes on a washing line, miniscule potion bottles and heart lights!

But that’s not all!! The real magic happened when we saw at least three fairies flying around us! I am super excited to see what might happen tomorrow, though I have a feeling that this elf could be trouble!!

Year Three Photo Frames

This half term, Year Three are designing and making their own photo frames! We have learned some of the skills needed by making a mock frame from scrap materials! We had lots of fun and can’t wait to start making the real frame!

Fire, Fire!

Mrs Stillwell’s class had an amazing time at Longton Fire Station. Thank you to everyone there for making it such a wonderful, memorable day. Please watch our video to see all of the amazing things that we did!

Stone Age Pottery!

In the Spring Term, we have been learning all about the Stone Age! As part of our topic, we have visited Hanley Pottery Museum where the children were able to look at real artefacts from the Stone Age!

We have created our very own Stone Age pots using clay and other natural materials! The children are all really excited to bring their pots home tomorrow and already have many ideas for how they intend to use them!

Thank you for a lovely morning Year Three!

Year 1 go to The Brampton Museum.

We have been learning all about old toys in Year One and so we decided to go to The Brampton Museum to have a look at some. There were some that we could touch and others that were behind glass. We had a fantastic day and we learnt so much more about the toys that our Grandparents and even our Great Grandparents would have played with. Please take a look at our blog to see some of the things that we saw and did.

Florence Nightingale.

We have been learning all about Florence Nightingale this half term and we have been looking at how nursing has changed since Florence was a nurse, but also how lots of things have stayed the same. To help us, we dressed up as Florence and we answered lots of questions pretending to be her. Nurse Sarah also came in to help us find out more about nursing and she answered lots of questions that we had as well. She brought in lots of things that she uses to look after her patients to show us. We now know lots about how important Florence was and still is today.

Our Very Special Visitor!

What a great afternoon we had in Year One! First of all we had a party and then we all went to see Santa! He gave us all an early present because he said that we had all done so well throughout the year – especially in school! We then carried on the party by eating lots of party food. Have a look at our blog to see what a great time we had!
