Happy New Year! The children have loved telling us all about their Christmas and we have seen some great writing about their presents already this term.
Thank you to all the parents who have sent us in pictures of your amazing pets. I have been fascinated learning about the wonderful pets you have and the children have enjoyed sharing the pictures.

Welcome back! We have already had a busy start to Term 4 with a visit from Pets at Home. They brought in some guinea pigs and a bearded dragon called Spyro. The children all had the opportunity to touch the animals before the staff told the children about how they care for the animals. They explained about the health checks and showed the children what they look for in a healthy guinea pig. We were also told a fascinating fact about bearded dragons. We learnt that they can detach their tails to get away from a predator if they get caught. When the tail grows back it is a stump that looks like a face so they can trick their predators.
The children all got to hear the story The Sun, Moon and the Coffee Pot told by Dragonbird theatre group. The children listened really well and enjoyed taking part in the activities after the story.
Over the weekend Reception have had a visitor!
We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw the Gingerbread Man and his friends running across the mat.
We spent the afternoon hunting him down, reading clues and eating yummy treats he had left for us.
We will now make missing posters to help us track him down, I wonder if we will find him!
Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
