Week 6 - Class AB

   The children constructed a boat to sail the oceans to find where the 'Wild Things' play.

We looked for signs of  'Wild Things' in the woodland, the children found pieces of coloured hair which they carefully made in to friendship bracelets.

What a surprise! A wild feast was left for the children to enjoy.

The children had to use their imaginations to create their own mud 'Wild Thing' face on a tree using natural resources.

We then sailed home on the rough seas. What an adventure!

Production Poster

We've just created a new poster to add to the Year 6 Performance Gallery of Fame in the corridor outside the Year 6 classes.
We may not get it on the wall today, so wanted to make sure the Year 6 children knew their performance would be on show for future visitors and other children to look at!

Can we explore it? - Our school

Nursery have been thinking about the question Can we explore it? Today we went to explore our school while the children were out at the Year 6 performance. The children loved sitting at all the big tables and we left messages on the whiteboards in the classes we visited to say hello. We really enjoyed seeing all the wonderful artwork on display around the school too, and we even sneaked into the staff room. Shhh!

Maths in Year 5

On Friday, both year 5 classes came together to complete a variety of maths challenges. Miss Whipps was impressed with the attitudes of the children, who all knuckled down and worked carefully together. Whilst having the freedom to choose the challenges they wished to complete, they were encouraged to extend themselves.
