On Monday the children learned about Remembrance Day and took part in a minutes silence. The children were given the opportunity to make their own poppies to mark the occasion. They used lots of different materials and techniques to make some fantastic work.
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.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
The children enjoyed takíng part lots of maths related field work for geography week. They explored the distance between trees using trundle wheels and by counting steps. They also used shape finders to count different natural materials in the playground. We measured the size of trees using our arms too!
We loved our trip to the library. The children were so well behaved and very sensible on the way and when we got there. All of the Early Years Staff were incredibly proud.
