For Your Information
The summer holidays will finally be here at 215pm on Tuesday 23rd July and hopefully the sun will make an extended appearance too!
There are lots of things available to families throughout the summer and we have displayed this information on the noticeboards in the alleyway between the main gates to both sites. We have listed activities to do, cheap or free places for children to eat and information about courses happening for families supporting children with additional needs. Don't forget to take a photo when you are collecting your child at the end of the day!
We are aware that the holidays are not always easy as normal routine and everyday life is suddenly changed (and that's for children too, not just us adults!). If you are finding it challenging, then please visit our website page which lists the support agencies available: Signposts to support home adults
We hope you all have an enjoyable break and can't wait to see you back on Wednesday 4th September for another exciting year ahead!

World Book Day

By Chestnut Class, in Year 1 - Thursday, 7 March 2024

We have had an awesome day celebrating World Book Day. We started by sharing the character we came as today and talking about the books they were from. 

The book we looked at as a class today was 'The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters'. We have been learning about all the traditional tales and fairytales in English this half term. We came across lots of the characters we knew, including the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood, the bears from Goldilocks and the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. 

We had a closer look at the letter the witch received. It was a poster about all the witch supplies she might need. We knew that these were so she could make her potions. There were lots of ingredients at the front to make our own potions with! We had super fun adding different things to our potion bottles to make a variety of amazing potions, including flying potions, evil milkshakes and crystal spells. Once we finished making them we then wrote a set of instructions on how to make our potions. 

After that, we looked at the Jolly Postman's journey that day. We drew him a map so he would know where to go to post the letters. We used directional language to help tell the Jolly Postman where to go on his journey.

Finally, we thought about the letters he would have to post and thought about the most efficient way to deliver them. We decided to that he should deliver them in order so that he is not running around everywhere! We had to help him by ordering the house numbers on the envelope so that he could get home in time for tea.
