In nursery, we have had a fantastic day learning about Fireworks. We used different craft resources including pegs, crepe paper, tinsel and glitter to make super safe sparklers and catherine wheels. Our favourite activity today was making edible sparklers using finger biscuits. We took a biscuit, dipped it in chocolate and then dipped the top into hundreds and thousands. They were very tasty! After, we discussed what to do when watching fireworks and using sparklers to make sure that we’re always safe.
We have had lots of fun creating these Stone Age settlements! The children thought carefully about what the Stone Age people would need to survive and what materials they would be able to use to build their shelters. I am sure that you will all agree these settlements are fantastic!
We had a little competition in Mrs Stillwell’s class in the last week at school. We were looking at who knew one more and one less than a number very quickly. We had prizes for the children that could answer the most in one minute and also prizes for the children that improved the most as the week progressed. Zeen and Ruban got 20 correct which was amazing! Leighton, Lily and Poppy all doubled their scores from the start to the end of the week, which showed that they kept practising, believing that they could do it and that they worked really hard. Well done everyone! I am very proud of you all.
Mrs Stillwell was very proud to award so many children a 100% attendance certificate! Well done and I am looking forward to awarding even more at Christmas.
What a fantastic achievement! Grace brought her 10 metre swimming certificate in to share with everyone. We were all very proud of her and we know that we will see lots more certificates from Grace in the future! Well done from all of your classmates!
Congratulations to Nina and Amber, our two Nursery superstars this week. Well done girls we are all very proud of you.
This afternoon, Year 2 have celebrated the Big Bad Pig turning into a friendly character in our latest version of The Three Little Pigs. At the end of the story, the Big Bad Pig sang and danced with the three little wolves using his own tambourine. The children have made their own fantastic tambourines and have even attached their own bells. Great job!
Year One had a visit from firefighter Gary. He shared the firework safety code and all the important rules that need to be followed as bonfire night approaches. We looked at the special clothes he has to protect him. Thank you Gary.
We have had a fantastic week in the Nursery. The children have created some brilliant art work, sang along to Autumn songs and have been supserstar counters of conkers! Well done everyone!

The children have settled in to school life brilliantly! We hope you have a lovely, well earned half term break with your families.
After reading the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ we decided to make our own pumpkin soup! We wrote a list of ingredients which included parsnips, onions, turnips, carrots and of course a pumpkin! There were mixed reviews amongst the children but there was a delicious smell in our classroom.
