  • Friday 27 May 2022 Friday 27th May 2022 The children have really enjoyed their project in DT this week, where they have been learning how to use applique to create a fossil picture. This took ALOT of patience and concentration to try and thread needles, poke holes in felt fabric to join to their binka and to be resilient when their threads got tangled! However their determination and effort really paid off as they have created some lovely fossil pictures using different sewing techniques. Well done Beetles!

  • Friday 20 May 2022 20th May The children had a great day on their trip to Charmouth. We had a talk to the rangers about the different fossils we could find and where to find them. They told us about the A,B C of fossil hunting to help us remember the names. A was for ammonite, B was for belemnites and C was for crinoids. We found lots of the fossils along with sea glass and some crystals. The children were really good at remembering about Mary Anning and could tell the rangers all about her. We were then able to go into the heritage center and look at the larger fossils that had been found from different parts of the country.

  • Friday 13 May 2022 Friday 13th May What a wonderful week we have had in Butterfly class! The highlight was our wonderful trip to Sevington.

The girls made lavender bags and polished brass whilst the boys tended to the garden, scared away birds and made bee's wax candles. We then had a lovely Victorian lunch in the school house followed by Victorian games during playtime.
  • Friday 13 May 2022 Friday 13th May - Millipedes are super learners This week Millipedes learning has been based around the story 'Supertato'. This has created many learning opportunities in our classroom. We have made our own supertato in the creative area, written what we think each of the characters might be saying in speech bubbles and designed our own superheroes and detailed the super powers that they had. This week we had heavy rain, but this did not stop our learning, we put our waterproofs and continued learning both inside and out.
  • Friday 13 May 2022 Friday 13th May 2022 This week the children have loved learning about the story, ‘Supertato’. The children are beginning to retell parts of the text and have enjoyed using the characters in the small world area to tell different versions of the story. The story inspired the children to write as if they were the characters. The children chose a character and then thought about what they might say and then wrote it down in a speech bubble. On Monday, the children had the opportunity to create their very own supertato using a range of vegetables and materials from the creative area.
