Our foundation children enjoyed performing a traditional nativity play, The Sleepy Shepherd, for their families. Everyone joined in singing and dancing with enthusiasm. Their families loved it.
We all had great fun pondering over what could be in the big parcel that was delivered to Foundation Stage! The children spent all day exploring the box, to see if they could hear noises coming from inside. They carried out some research, using the non-fiction books, to find out which dinosaur could be in there! Some thought it was a real dinosaur and others thought it was a toy! Charlie said he knew it couldn't be a real dinosaur "I know dinosaurs are extinct, they don't exist anymore". At the end of the day, we opened the parcel to see what was inside...
We had such a fantastic time, scooping out pumpkins! We enjoyed talking and writing about our senses and how the pumpkin flesh and seeds looked, felt and smelt. We noticed the pumpkin flesh was "cold and wet" and the pumpkin seeds were "hard and slippery".
We have all worked so hard, learning about harvest time and putting on a harvest assembly for our families!
Ms Richman's class thoroughly enjoyed performing The Little Red Hen story for an audience. We learned about working as a team and helping one another.
In our Harvest Service Mrs Heddon and Mrs Eveleigh's class had great fun re-enacting the story of The Enormous Turnip. The children learnt about perseverance and working together to solve a problem.
We have enjoyed our first full week at school and have settled really well.
Both classes have already started their regular visits to our wonderful school library. They enjoyed sharing stories with Mrs Tarrel, commenting on the pictures and predicting what was going to happen next.
We have enjoyed our yummy school lunches!
We are getting to grips with the responsibility of weeding and digging as we prepare the raised beds for planting spring bulbs.
We have enjoyed learning and playing with all our new friends!
Wow! We were lucky with the weather for our trip to Dawlish Warren. We had great fun digging and finding different things on the beach. We made sandcastles, balanced stones and paddled in the sea. After lunch we walked along to climb up the railway bridge and waited as the trains thundered beneath us! Finally we enjoyed ice lollies and made our way back to the coaches - tired but very happy.
Today was Pirate Day, the children had great fun singing sea shanties, dancing a jig, imagining they were pirates searching for treasure and interacting with Pirate Rob's storytelling.
The sun shone and the children looked great. We had a super team of year fives that devised some activities and encouraged the children to have a go - which they all did. The children listened and followed the instructions. The classes were organised into our 4 school houses.
