Christian Values Day PERSERVERANCE, by Mrs Wilson
Date: 15th Jan 2019 @ 4:52pm
We had a wonderful day on Friday learning about the meaning of perserverance. We had to persevere and try to build a tower of bricks using only tweezers (really tricky!), we tried hard to thread beads on a string using only one hand (this was really tricky too!) and aim quoits to land on a cone (this was the trickiest of all!)
Group two try on the fire kit, by Mrs Swift
Date: 7th Jan 2019 @ 8:34am
The children are continuing to enjoy the visits to the fire station. We looked at different modes of transport and how to stay safe whilst using them. They got to try on the full fire kit and then were timed putting it back on. They were almost as quick as the real fire crew.

This week the children got to try on a fire kit. They were then timed to see how fast they could get their kits on, they were brilliant at it and managed to do it inside the 90 seconds they needed to. They then practiced rolling out a hose and rolling it back up. They all really enjoyed it.

The children had their last visit to the Fire Station today. They learnt how to role a hose out and role it back up again. They then had a race in teams to see who could role out the hose, connect to the water supply and spray the water first. All this in full fire kit! They also did some more classroom based work on keeping themselves safe aroud fire and electricity. Next week a new group of 10 children will attend.

Egg-citing News!, by Mrs King
Date: 7th Sep 2018 @ 7:56am
Yesterday, a silver egg appeared in Cherry class, covered in what looked like scales! The children kept a watchful eye all day, but could see no signs of the egg hatching. This morning, all that is left in the nest we made are some golden scales, that appear to be trailing out of the door! I wonder what is going on....
Butterflies in Elm class, by Miss Smith-Shelton
Date: 29th Jun 2018 @ 5:03pm
In Elm class, we have been learning about the life cycle of caterpillars. As part of this, we have been observing the tranformation of caterpillars to buttterflies. We started the term with 6 tiny caterpillars, but saw how they soon grew much, much bigger! After a few days, they formed chyrsallids, where they began their transformation to butterflies! On Thursday 28th, we noticed something moving in the net where we kept them and found that 2 butterflies had emerged. We came in this morning and the other 4 had emerged too!
Here are some pictures Miss Smith-Shelton and some Elm pupils took of our beautiful butterflies.
