Mr Savva’s Adventure

In the summer Mr Sava journeyed to Laos by plane and boat. He discovered that the children in Laos live in poverty and don’t have toys or equipment to play/use. So himself and his friends had an idea: to decorate wooden planks and transform them into swings. The children loved it but Mr Sava wants to spread the joy over more schools. Each class has their own swings and are now decorating them for the kids in Laos.They all look amazing and colourful! This Saturday he is flying back there to deliver our swings to other schools. Merlin class are also selling badges related with this project.

In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery this week the morning class have been exploring the topic ‘Transport’ with the opportunity to engage in road safety role-play in the outdoor area, categorising transport types by land and engaging in transport themed listening activities.

They also got very messy washing the cars in the outdoor area and car painting.

The afternoon children have demonstrated a real interest in the story ‘Dear Zoo’ and have enjoyed participating in animal themed listening activities and singing songs. The children ‘wrote’ letters to the zoo to ask for a Nursery pet and were delighted when the postman sent them a puppy (just like in the story!) to visit for the day. Albert the dog was a popular member of the Nursery class and a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about what a pet needs to be healthy.

Other activities this week have included a ‘Nature Scavenger Hunt’ following the children observing a squirrel in the Nursery outdoor area and lots of junk modelling in the art area.


Crofton Roman Villa

Crofton Roman Villa

On the 5th of October year 3 went on a school trip to the Crofton Roman Villa . While they enjoyed dressing up, making mosaics and looking at the wonderful remains of the villa, they also discovered that under our school field is a Roman Villa. They also learnt about how they lived in those ancient times.

A Wonderful Harvest Assembly

On Friday 6th October the school had two amazing harvest assemblies. Every year-group had the chance to present their learning to the school and in the infants to their grand parents as well. A lovely set of well sung songs made the assembly a treat for the ears. Also a very special thanks to Mrs Poxon for organising it and Mrs Braddock for helping the children learn the songs.
