Your child will need a P.E. kit consisting of black shorts, a white t-shirt and easy fasten pumps please. You can also put jog bottoms in for when the weather is cold. If you wish your child to wear leggings for P.E. please put them on under their uniform.
The Bee Company came to visit our school. We found out many amazing facts about bees especially Honey Bees and how important they are to us and our environment. These are just some of the fascinating facts the children remembered.
Bees fly from flower to flower, sipping nectar and collecting grains of pollen.
Bees have a special tongue that sucks up the nectar and a crop in their throat for storing it until they get back to the hive, where it is turned into honey to use as food.
Many plants depend on bees to spread pollen, helping them to reproduce.
Flowers that attract bees are usually yellow, blue, or purple. (we did a bee dance some of us were bees and some flowers.)
Honeybees and bumblebees live in colonies or hives. All the bees in the colony work as a team to make honey.
Without bees we would not have certain food.
A big thank you to all out wonderful grandparents who took part in this special day. The children had lots of fun asking you questions and I know you enjoyed answering them!
Week beginning 20thtJune we celebrated National Sports Week, the children took part in a variety of sport related activities in the classroom and outdoors. Some of the activities the children participated in were relay races, football skills, multi skills and linking sport to their maths and literacy work. We invited our families to come and join us for a fun sports activity morning. Also Freddy Fit came to our school and showed us how to have fun, get fit and stay healthy!!
After our assembly with Miss Cowgill and Chris, RE became the Red Class for the day we were all mixed up with children from y2 y1 and Reception.
Our first activity in the morning was to design flags for our dens. We then used mini bamboo sticks and plasticine to make a 3D model of our den. Chris explained that building the model would help us think about working as a team, talking and planning and sharing the equipment. After playtime we put on our hats, coats and wellies and met Chris in the playground. He provided us with large bamboo sticks, cable ties and pegs. Although it rained a little we were so busy we didn't mind and we all worked very hard to build our dens.
After dinner we went back to our dens to cover them using a variety of sheets and pegs to make them waterproof. Finally we added our flags,went inside our tents and had our snacks. What a fantastic day we had!
A big thank you to all the grown ups who came to help us today we could not have done this without you!

Thank you to all the parents who made a contribution and organised the purchase of our new library books. The children were absolutely delighted with them!
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. We had a fantastic time working with our friends in teams and with partners, helping us to develop coordination, cooperation, trust and respect. We even learnt how to say 1,2,3, in Portuguese, the language spoken in Brazil.
We just could not stop counting and writing numbers.
