National Teddy Bear Day
On Wednesday the 10th October we celebrated National Bring your Teddy to School Day. We enjoyed looking after our bears, cooking bear biscuits and visiting the school forest. We learnt the song 'If you go down in the woods today' and we acted the story 'Going on a bear hunt.'
Supporting learning at home
Start of the Autumn Term 2018
We have enjoyed getting to know the children and finding out what they already know. This has allowed us to plan play opportunities which will match the interests and needs of the unit. We have introduced routines and structures of the day including; break times, lunch in the hall, rewards and behaviour management and some assemblies. We are looking forward to learning more about the children and the year ahead.
Head Lice - 23 May
A case of head lice has been reported, please check and treat your child's hair as necessary.
Reception have had nine very fluffy visitors for the last 2 weeks! They have been observing the chicks hatch and grow and have thought very carefully about how to look after the chicks. They have helped to feed, water and clean the chicks out daily- they grew very quickly! Reception were very lucky to be able to use their PTA trip money to pay for the chicks, they have taught the boys and girls a lot about growth, change and caring for living things. The children (and grown-ups) are very sad to say bye to the chicks as they return to Farmer Brown to become free range Hens and Cockerels.
