During French Day the children were able to enjoy a wide range of activities to enrich their learning about France.
The children had an exciting day taking part in dance and art workshops led by Bemma Akyeampong. They picked up the African songs and dance moves very quickly. They tried traditional mud art on cloth which involved new techniques and really enjoyed listening to traditional African tales.
All the children in school had a great time honing their cooking skills. They made a scone based pizza and 5aDay Tomato and vegetable topping and learned about healthy food choices.
We were thrilled to receive second place in the walking floats category.
During walk to school week we have been leaning about road safety through role play and why it is important to adhere to the Green Cross Code.
Since our return to school after the Easter holidays, we have been very lucky to have some beautiful sunny weather.
The children have enjoyed using the new café role play area and various playground toys.
Please remember to send your child to school with their sunhats and applied suncream to enable them to play safe.
We received our prize for winning the naming of the meerkats in the Exotic Zoo competition. The children had the opportunity to hold and stroke a tarantula, baby crocodile, corn snake, giant millipede, tree frog and of course the two meerkats.
As part of our religious education and cultural studies we visited the Sikh Gurdwara in Oakengates.
A fabulous total of £130.15 was raised from the cake sale all the proceeds will go to Comic Relief, well done everyone!
World Book Day March 2015
Everyone came dressed up in their favourite book character costume.
Everyone enjoyed a tractor ride to see the deer; studied trees by examining their leaves and bark and gathered lots of natural objects to remember the day.
