Apple Nursery were very excited about the Gingerbread Man this week. After hearing the story on Monday, the Gingerbread Man managed to escape from our classroom on Tuesday! We spotted him on the CCTV outside Nursery and began a hunt for him, looking for clues and asking staff if they had seen him. Some children went home looking all over Abbots Langley for him! 😃
Meanwhile we had fun acting out the story, playing with flour, counting and investigating what happens when a gingerbread man is put in different liquids!
Eventually, on Friday we found the Gingerbread Man and enjoyed eating him all up!
Here are the winners for KS1, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6. Daisy from Beech was the EYFS winner. Well done to everyone for a great effort with this homework, as a whole staff we were very impressed!
Apple Nursery have loved re-telling the story of Little Red Riding Hood this week!

The scene is set! We are ready to take delivery of our book fair on Monday! We will be open straight after school all week. Monday will be in Larch Class and then in the hall for the remainder of the week. Come and support us, keep your children reading and help raise funds for our school library!
Apple Nursery enjoyed dressing up at school and sharing their favourite book with the class.
On Tuesday, 8 members of the school football team had a fantastic opportunity to attend a Watford football club primary stars tournament. The team played amazing football and were the team in our group to beat. Unfortunately St Albert the Great were stronger and they went through to the semi finals, then the final which they then won. Mrs Chapman, Mr Creamer and I were very proud of their footballing skills and team work.
After reading The Gruffalo’s Child, the children wanted to make something from a Gruffalo recipe book that a child had brought to school. We decided to make ‘Owl ice-cream’ using bananas and raspberries mixed in a blender and then adding raisins and cinnamon. The children enjoyed making the mixture and then seeing what happened to it after we put it in the freezer. Eating the ice-cream today was a great treat!
Apple Nursery enjoyed learning about staying safe online and have promised to check ‘Is it okay?’ with an adult before making choices online! Parents and carers were invited to take part in Computing activities with their children and had fun with the Code-a-pillars and BeeBots.
Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.
We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.
