It has been a day of mixed emotions as we welcomed back Basil and Pepper but had to say goodbye to one of our Ladybirds. We all signed the back of his picture frame that showcased his brilliant seaside artwork, partly made with sand from our school trip. All the other children have also been completing art work ready for Grandparents Day next month. The quality of the work is superb and we are all very proud.
The children had an amazing day at Boscombe. The weather was brilliant and perfect for paddling in the sea. The lifeguards on the beach gave a talk about their job and how to stay safe. It was great to play on the beach, enjoy the waves coming in and spending the day at the seaside. Take a look at some of our pictures.
Today, the Circus came to the school. We watched a performance and then were taught skills, such as plate spinning. At the end of the day some of us performed in front of all the school.
Today the children were taught how to brush their teeth correctly. They decided which foods were good and bad for teeth, had a story about the tooth fairy and even dressed up as a dentist. All the children were given a tube of toothpaste and a new toothbrush to make their 'teeth sparkle like Meghan Markle'!
Today we had a tour around Morrisons. We met a number of relatives out shopping and some who worked in the store. Lisa the Morrisons Community Champion, talked about where the food came from, what could be found in the different departments and how the store worked on a day to day basis. She took us behind the scenes where we saw a delivery being sorted and also the huge freezer. We finished by eating some of the different fruits that they sell in store and buying some milk for the teacher's cups of tea!
Today we had a visit from a firefighter. She talked about what the fire service do and how they help us and keep us safe. The children completed a quiz and had the opportunity to dress up and ask lots of interesting questions.
Today Skippy John visited our school to give the children some top tips on how to become a super skipper and keep healthy. Skippy John has left some ropes with us to practise with and we will be having lots of fun at play times using the skipping ropes. See some of the action below!
Today we were glad to welcome Basil and Ellen from Westbury Library to our assembly. They came to launch our joint loyalty scheme, between us and the library. On Friday (tomorrow) all the children will take home a loyalty card.
From now to the end of June the children will get points for going to the library, a point for taking out books, attending a special event and if a they or a family member joins. There is an inter class competition, the winners (worked out by percentage) will have a celebration in July.
The librarians at Westbury Library look forward to seeing lots of children.
Today we had a visit from the police. They talked to the children about what they should do if they are lost in a shop or out and about. We looked at the police car and put the emergency lights on along with the siren.
