Year One had a surprise visitor today! Gary from Longton Fire Station came to talk to us about the firework code and staying safe, especially this weekend! He demonstrated sparkler safety and shared why fireworks need to be kept in a metal tin. The children listened perfectly and asked amazing questions. Well done Year One and many thanks to Gary for coming to see us.
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.
A huge well done to our brilliant Nursery children who have completed their first full week in school! They have settled beautifully, are making lots of new friends and we hope are happy.
Have a lovely well earned rest this weekend ready for another fun filled week next week when we are learning all about our senses.
Wow! Miss Cope and I cannot believe just how well all of the children have settled into their new journey in Year One! We are so proud of all of them! We have been getting to know all of the children through their “all about me” boxes. It has been so interesting to see our children’s families and learning all about their hobbies, the toys that they like to play with and their favourite things! Thank you mums, dads and other special adults for helping the children to create such informative, creative boxes. We are so excited about this year and we look forward to watching your children achieve amazing things. Thank you again children and adults and please take a look at the boxes for yourselves.
Congratulations to Erin, Isabella, Seren, Oscar, Joshua, Evie, Lucas, Alex, Bethan, Skyler, Mconnel and Bobby who all received a book prize this morning and to all those children who received a 100% attendance medal.
We would also like to say a big well done to all the children for working so hard throughout the year. It has been a fantastic year and we will all miss the children very much when they move to Year 1.
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!
