The children have been enjoying climbing over, under and through different pieces of equipment in our PE lessons, especially using the large climbing frame for the first time!
The children have loved joining in with the festivities this week. They enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner yesterday and then this morning the fun continued with our class Christmas party. Well done to Jaden who was the winner of pin the nose on Rudolf! Thank you for all of your generous donations.

Larch class were inspired by Kathleen, the producer of Star Wars. We learnt how to use blocks to code.
Coding is a computer languages used. We had to try and complete each level, adding more lines of code each time.
We have some super coders in Larch class.
Today year 3 enjoyed a wonderful day out to Tring Natural History Museum. We looked closely at lots of different animal skulls to investigate what animal the skull might belong to. We used our knowledge of the different teeth types to help our investigation. We also roamed through all of the museum’s exhibits, looking closely at the different animals on display. We even got the chance to dress up as some of our favourite animals.
A massive thank you to all of the parent helpers who joined us and made the trip possible. We’re already looking forward to our next adventure.
The children were fascinated to see the vast variety of animals at the museum. We had a great handling session of different skulls. We looked closely at the teeth to give us clues as to which mammal each belonged to. We had some great guesses.
We found animals from different biomes. There were also animals which sadly are now extinct, the great sloth bear and the dodo.
A big thank you to our parent helpers who I think enjoyed it as much as the children.
I know that many of the children would love to return so do pop along and learn even more.
Well done Larch you were a pleasure to take out.
A tiring day for some!
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?
Today Juniper class took part in a range of activities as part of our work for anti-bullying day. In one such activity we investigated the power of our words. We passed around an apple and said horrible and mean things to it. We then passed around a second apple and gave the apple lots of compliments. Afterwards, we cut open both apples to discover the impact that our nasty words can have. We were reminded that although the impact of mean words may not always be visible on the outside, they make a difference on the inside.
We also enjoyed wearing odd socks to school to show our support for anti-bullying day.
