Year 2 Pancake Day

Year 2 have had a fantastic day today. This morning, we made pancakes which tasted delicious. Then we wrote a set of instructions on how to make pancakes and finally this afternoon, we took part in lots of pancake races! Well done to our winners who dashed across the hall in record time!

Olivia’s Buckingham Palace

Easy Blog Photo
Wow! Look at this fabulous palace!
As part of our Nursery Rhyme topic this week we have been learning about The Queen of Hearts. Olivia has worked really hard at home making this fantastic palace with her Mum and Dad.
Thank you for bringing in in to school to show us you have made Mrs Moss and all the teachers very proud!

Reception Firefighters

As part of our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic, Reception have been learning all about the important role of being a firefighter today. They have had great fun dressing up as firefighters, playing with the fire station and fire engine, painting fire engines and making sets of ladders. The children were surprised to find out that firefighters not only help to put out fires but they are also called out to other emergencies too. We’d love for you to ask your child if they can remember the different ways in which firefighters help us.

Transition Day Displays

We were really pleased to welcome so many family members and friends into school before the summer holiday to meet the teachers and work with the children in their new class. Some super work was created during the morning. Your work really has brightened up our classrooms.

We’d also like to welcome you once again into school on the morning of Thursday 14th September. This is a chance to again work alongside the children and have a quick chat with their teacher. We do hope you’ll be able to join us.

Have a look at the clip below to see some of the work which was created during the morning.

Handa’s Surprise

The Nursery children had a very busy week learning all about different countries. We spent a very busy Monday learning about France. We looked closely at The Eiffel Tower and then the children tried hard to paint their own, we had lots of fun learning to say ‘hello’ in French. I wonder if anyone can remember?
We shared the story ‘Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne. In the story Handa visits her friend Akeyo and takes a basket of seven different fruits, along the way some very cheeky animals took the fruit from the basket. Can you remember any of the animals? Following the story we tasted a selection of fruits from the story, as you will see from the childrens faces on the photos some were not very popular!
We looked at the Indian flag and tasted a variety of foods, including naan bread, poppadum, mango chutney and cucumber and mint dip.
Buongiorno Thursday! We spent the day learning about Italy and making our very own pizzas! an activity the children thoroughly enjoyed, of course the best part was eating it once it was cooked.
We hope you enjoy looking at our photos and as always would love to hear what you children had to say about our very busy week.

The Summer Fayre

Huge thanks to everyone who supported our Summer Fayre on Saturday. We hope that everyone had a lovely time, whilst also helping to raise funds to support our mini – bus appeal. Have a look at the photograph slideshow below for a little reminder of the day; a day when the seaside came to Sandford Hill!
