We watched a video about life as a child in the Stone Age era. They then paired up to search the web for Stone Age facts and pictures. We learnt about Stone...
A Mystery Egg was left in the Reception classroom this morning. The children were asked to look after it until the mummy returned. Each child wrote a notice to tell people of how to behave near the egg to keep it safe. We are all excited to see what will hatch from the egg.
The children in reception class have been experimenting mixing colours. Unfortunately, once they had mixed the colours they began exploring how it would look on themselves and each other. Apologies to parents for the paint on clothes.

Yesterday we had a visit from the Fire service. We were very lucky that they brought their fire engine into the school grounds so we could look around it. The children also had the opportunity to feel like a fire fighter and use the hose.
Once back in Reception class the children dressed up as fire fighters, rescuing people and putting out fires.
Last session with the Groundwork team today. 🙁 What a fantastic morning the children had. They learned how to make a campfire, baked bread, eat the bread with garlic butter, drank hot chocolate and melted chocolate so that they could indulge in marshmallows and creamy chocolate. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their time with the Groundwork team and have...
This term Year 3 have been studying healthy eating and have been discussing how to keep a balanced diet.

To help us understand this...
The children in Reception class visited Middleton library today. All the children chose their own book and brought it back to school. Thank you to all our parent volunteers who came with us and made the visit possible. Reception children would also like to thank those parents who carried all the books back for them.
