Today in Power 5, children were challenged to find as many different ways they could to make 20. Look at all the different ways we came up with. Can you think of any more ways?
Nursery have been inspired by the arrival of the caterpillars and during group work have made salt dough caterpillar models, looked at the life cycle of a caterpillar, cut out pictures of it, placing them in the right order and decorated a butterfly picture making sure each side matched. Look at just some of their amazing work!
Following on from the visits we had from chicks and snails, we now have some caterpillars in EYFS.
They’re really small at the moment but we’re going to watch them grow. We’ll keep you posted on how much they change.
The Governing Body met this evening in the glorious sunshine! Reports were received from staff on Reading, RE and Ms Trickett gave the head teachers report. Ms Edwards informed the Governing body about the recent staff INSET training she had attended, on Heartsmart our new PSHE curriculum.

Dates for FGB meetings for the next academic year were shared.
The date of the next meeting is Monday 8th July 2019.
This morning Year 1 have become authors and are writing their own stories. The classroom is a full of children fully focused on their learning and I am so excited to read their stories later today!
What a fascinating couple of weeks Reception and Nursery have had seeing 13 chicks hatch and grow…
The children have loved observing the chicks and how they have been changing in appearance and developing new skills such as jumping. They also had the opportunity to hold a chick and describe how that felt. Sadly today we had to say good bye to the chicks today. If you would like to talk more to your child about how they will look when they are fully grown please look up the breed Cream Legbar Chicken.
UPDATE : The School Gateway is now back up and running.
The School Gateway is currently having problems. Texts and emails can not be sent or received. Please call the office or use the admin email if you need to contact the school. We will update you when the system is back online.
Following on from the chicks that arrived last week, we had a visit from some snails. We talked about what we thought the snails might like to eat and watched them travel across the table using words like ‘slither, slide and slow’. We noticed too that these words all start with the same sound!
Year 4 explored the power of their words this afternoon. They spoke kindly to one apple and used hurtful words to another. Although both apples looked the same, when we cut them open, one had been damaged and bruised by our words. How did it make you feel?
