We had a perform drama workshop with Sarah on Wednesday in Lloyd Hall. We thought about all the different creatures we might see under the sea and moved like them. Then we put on our diving gear and we got ready to swim. While we were swimming we met Dolly the dolphin who told us about the lost pearl that the deep sea creature took to the Arctic bottom. We hunted for the magic pearl and then we made a wish on it. I wonder what everyone wished for?
All of the nursery and reception children watched a production of Errols Garden by the Golden Toad theatre company at school today. There was lots of songs and dancing too. We found out all about how Errol and his sister Tia created a garden on the roof of their flats and all their neighbours helped. All the children and the adults agreed it was a brilliant show.
Here is a link to a trailer and activity for the show…..
Today is a school wide dressing up day! The children have really gone for it and look fantastic. We are raising much needed cash for school funds – you can still make a donation online or to the collection buckets. There will be a collection on each gate this evening and more photos uploaded after school.
Thanks to everyone who has been involved in getting the children ready for today.
The whole school got into their best superhero get-ups to celebrate this year’s Comic Relief appeal.
The reception classes had a great time and loved dressing up for the day.
A HUGE thank you to anyone who donated, we raised over £600 towards the appeal.
The reception classes took full advantage of the green spaces around school AND Mr. Hudson’s expertise as they went off hunting minibeasts and crawly critters…
The two classes left no stone unturned as they explored the wide range of wildlife that can be found across the school’s impressive range of garden and flowerbed spaces.
Mr. Hudson was on hand to help the children find the creepiest crawliest bugs!
The children in Forest & Woodland classes had a great first week back and showed little signs of any anxiety about settling into the routines and rhythms of the school day.
The children have enjoyed finding their way back into learning habits and have explored the whole of their indoor and outdoor spaces.
We will bring you some more updates this week.
What a gorgeous day for our second day of full school opening. The children were out and making the most of the space that they have. You can see how happy them children are to be back playing and working alongside their peers & friends.
Children from Forest and Woodland classes making the most of the gorgeous day!
There was a palpable sense of relief as the gates opened across the school site this morning. For many of the children, this was the first day in school for over 8 weeks.
The school sounds and feels like a very happy place and any signs of anxiety seem to have evaporated during the course of the day. Mr Absolom has zipped around the school to capture a few photos of each year group in-situ!
Welcome to the Reception Blog. As we all come back to school together, we will be using this blog to keep you updated on what the children are getting up to in class.
As this is all a bit new to us, please bear with us as we experiment with ways of capturing the magic that happens each day in Woodland and Forest classes.
As a start, we have put together a small gallery of some of the work submitted by the children who have not been in school over the last few weeks.
Please remember this just a small sample of all the fantastic work that has been sent in over the past 8(!) weeks. Try to view it as a celebration of the collective effort and not become disheartened if an individual, or a particular piece of work, is not represented.
