The children have had an amazing first day at school! It was really lovely to see so many smiling and excited faces this morning!
The children came into school really well and were shown where to put all of their belongings. After doing the register and reading a story the children enjoyed a morning of action packed discovery time before returning to the carpet to have some key person time.
The children thoroughly enjoyed talking to us about their chatter boxes – unfortunately there wasn’t time to see all of them so we will do a few each day over the week!
We would like to say a big thank you and well done to all of the children for being such superstars today! We are all looking forward to seeing them again tomorrow morning!

Today the children had a really fun day of exploring and conducting science experiments! The children watched a crazy fizz explosion of cola and mentos. We talked about the word ‘reaction’ and the children wrote about their favourite experiment. Other experiments included; making bubble gum slime, making kinetic sand, making rainbow rain clouds and much much more! Take a look at the pictures below to find out about the day!
Over the last few weeks the children have been learning about food from different countries. They have tasted food from India and some exotic fruits such as passion fruit, mango and pomegranate which they used to make a fruit salad.
This week the children have learnt about pizzas which come from Italy. The children made their own pizza
and decided which topping they would like! We hope they enjoyed eating them as much as they enjoyed making them!
The children all had such a wonderful time at their very first school disco yesterday! As the children made their way down to the school hall they were all so excited when they could hear the sound of their favourite songs playing! As soon as they arrived they were all straight on the dance floor to boogie with their friends and teachers!
After a lot of dancing the children were thankful for a quick break with some juice and crisps before they hit the dance floor again!
Yesterday we decided to take advantage of the good weather and go on a spring walk around Bidbury Park! The children enjoyed looking at all of the different flowers, leaves and trees around the park and keeping an eye out for all the wildlife! We finished our walk by having a play in the park and then going on a mini beast hunt!
The children really got a lot out of this experience and have even been busy making pictures and writing sentences about what they did and saw at the park!
We decided to take the children to Staunton Farm as a part of our pet week! The children had the most wonderful day walking around the farm and learning about all of the animals there. In the morning the children were able to meet and feed some of the animals, then, after a picnic lunch on the farm, the children went to explore the maze and gardens. Then they finished off the day with a play in the park and then sketching their favourite animal on the farm!
What a fantastic day!
Before the Easter break the children had a very exciting week learning about the different pets that people keep and how to look after them! A very big thank you to the those who were able to bring in their pets to show the children – they thoroughly enjoyed it!
