We heard a funny story about teachers eating cookies in the staff room and then used cereal to divide the cookies in lots of different ways.

The whole school had a geography week where each age range focused on a different continent. Key stage 1 discovered many new things about Asia, specifically China and its capital city, Beijing. We found China and Beijing on a map and also learnt about Beijing landmarks. We then made postcards.

Thank you for your patience when the children left early on Thursday. Anything I have found that was left behind has been put in their trays. This includes a magic wand, a storm trooper belt and a couple of books. I aim to change the children's reading books on Monday due to the school not being open today.

We made our bird feeders, making sure our roof was covered in waterproof materials.

Key stage one planned a fair test to see which materials were waterproof. We then conducted our experiment and noted our results. We will use this information to decide what material to use for the roof of our bird houses which we will make tomorrow.

We looked for different British birds around our playground and made a tally chart.

In art, we drew a self portrait using oil pastels and imagined ourselves standing in London. In our sunglasses, we drew the reflection of what we could see. Can you spot Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace?

Photos of our exciting start to the Space Topic.

In the playground, we drew chalk lines to different people and said a nice thing about them. Cuckoo class talked about how we are kind and friendly to each other.

Due to some feedback, reading books will now be changed on Fridays. This is instead of the previous arrangement where a different reading group changed their books each day. Books will still be changed once a week with parents/carers encouraged to come in and change their child's books if they think that they new books earlier.
