Our last assembly will be on Thursday 23rd May at 9am. We are looking forward to sharing our Red Riding Hood stories, songs and actions with friends and families! Following our assembly we will be Welly Walking, parents or family members are welcome to join us. It should be a great end to a very busy term.
Great excitment this week when Mr Unsworth came to school – riding on his tractor! He drove it right into our playground so that we could all get a closer look. He told us all about the different jobs he uses his tractor for. We learnt about drilling and dragging, spraying, spreading and ploughing – no wonder the tractor looked a bit muddy! Mrs Marshall and I were also allowed to climb up inside the cab and start up the engine but that was it – I think we need a bit more training before we would be allowed to drive it out of the playground! Thank you Mr Unsworth for the experience.
This is the weight that stops the tractor from tipping up
Mrs Forsyth has a go!
I am delighted with my class! They have produced some truly amazing story maps and from these they have written their own stories. We are busy organising a display so that you can see the fantastic learning that has been going on!
The Reception children find evidence of Spring!
Finally we have been able to see signs of spring. Blossom, buds, flowers, shoots and calves – generally lots of new life! We really enjoyed our April Welly Walk and as you can see in the photograph, most of us decided to leave our coats behind. At one point Elise did tell me she felt a drop of rain and although at first I thought she was mistaken – she wasn’t! Luckily it came to nothing and we made it back to school without getting wet.
A reminder that we will be Welly Walking on Thursday 25th April. Thanks to all the parents who have offered their help. We will leave at 10.30am.
Finally …summer terms, we hope!
The first two weeks of this term will be spent developing a range of skills based upon the traditional story of Red Riding Hood.
It was certainly cold today on our March Welly Walk – we wrapped up really well.
We have recently had a fabulous day at Rushmoor and the weather was really kind to us. The children were able to meet and handle all sorts of animals. Look at this photograph of Mrs Marshall – how brave!
What a fun day and what amazing costumes!
A proud moment – here we are sharing our books with everyone in School assembly!
The Reception authors!
