Over the last three weeks the children have been having a lot of fun at Forest school. As part of our topic ‘Let’s Celebrate’ Geoff has introduced light at the forest. The children had to rub the flint and steel together to produce a spark and create their own fire. They were all brilliant and […]
Today Friday 13th November is Children in Need day. The children came to school in their pyjama’s and all donated towards the brilliant charity. Thank you.

On Thursday the 5th November the children watched a short clip of a firework display. They looked at all the different colours in the sky at night to create their own master piece.

As part of our ‘machines’ topic, Geoff from forest school brought out a hand drill for the children to practice their drilling skills. Grace was a natural and didn’t want to stop drilling the holes. All the children had a turn and enjoyed using the drill.
On Tuesday Stingray class had a special visitor called Hester. Gibson is an Ability Dog who visits schools and meets the children. He loves to be stroked gently and the children could ask questions about his job in school. He sat really nicely in class as the children came up to say hello.
