Thursday 16 September 2021 Circus Skills Today we were lucky enough to have Phill from the circus come and teach us some new skills. We had a lovely assembly where we demonstrated his skills and showed us what we could have a go at later. We all had a go at spinning a plate and the children were amazed with themselves that they could do it. We then balanced Peacock feathers on our hands, chin and head, that was tricky!! Some of us then went on to walk the tight rope, juggle with scarfs and walk on stilts. We had a lovely time and all tried something new.
Thursday 16 September 2021 Beach trip We had an amazing trip to the seaside on Friday. The children were all well behaved and only started asking if we were nearly there right towards the end of the journey. Once we arrived we had lots of fun building sand castles and mermaid tails. Jumping in the waves, writing messages in the sand and having a wonderful time. We enjoyed our picnic on the sand and then we went for a walk along the pier. We all had a wonderful time.

Wednesday 15 September 2021 BANG!- An old classic jaguar. The Year 2 children have hada wondeful start to their topic about the history of cars with a very special visit! Mr Simon very kindly brought his vintage 1995 classic jaguar into school for the children to see. They were fanscinated by some of the differences between his car and more modern cars today and were able to look inside the engine and talk about all of the different parts. This was an invaluable opportunity for the children. It is one thing looking at pictures of older cars, but to actually see one up close was amazing.
Friday 10 September 2021 Friday 10th September- Welcome! What a fantastic week we have had in Firefly Class! We have absolutely enjoyed getting to know all of the children and they have settled in so well to the new class routines. It has also been great to be able to come together as a whole school community again and we have enjoyed some assemblies and playtimes with our friends in the other classes.
