Fairytale castle

After half term our new topic will be ‘Twisted Tales’. The children voted for the new role play area and the winner was a fairytale castle. The children were given a half term challenge and Ms Schofield has been busy creating as well – it all started with a very large cardboard box. Looking forward to seeing all of your creations next week. 

Dinosaur workshop 

Ash class were very excited on Thursday during the dinosaur workshop. They got to meet both a baby and juvenile T-Rex. Check out Learning Journals after half term to see if your child was brave enough to get up close to the juvenile T-Rex. Ash class made fantastic palaeontologists as they carefully explored artefacts for carnivores, herbivores and other life.


In phonics last week we learned 4 new sounds (y, z,zz and qu) these are in the black box to practise at home. Thank you to the parents who attended our phonics workshop. We are always here to help if you need any advice on how to help you child at home with reading and writing.

Rapid Fire 6Ts and Hockey House Event!

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.

Visitors in Ash Class

Last Thursday Ash class were visited by Red Watch from Garston Fire Station. The children got to sit in the fire engine cab, ask lots of questions, spray water using a hose and laugh as Ms Schofield dressed as a firefighter! This morning they got the opportunity to meet a Sergeant from the Metropolitan Police Service. Lots of excitement as the children learn all about ‘People Who Help Us’. Who will be next to visit Ash class?

Magical Minds Performance

All of Early Years got to enjoy a fantastic  drama, dance and musical spectacular called Magical Minds. It was a story all about emotions and how they help us to be resilient, hardworking and loving people. 

The ‘Emotion Squasher’ was trying to stop us from feeling sad, happy, angry or scared. It’s important to feel different emotions as they help us to understand ourselves and others. 

The music and dancing were brilliant. You could really see the different emotions just by watching the movements.
