Forest School

Year 3 had a treat last week, Mrs. Pittaway and Mrs. Horton took them into the forest for a lovely afternoon of fun and exploration.

The gallery was not found.

Science Week

The children have had a fabulous science week! We have taken part in lots of different activities such as the recycling challenge, Animal Mania, forest school, clay animals and pond dipping. We were also lucky enough to have Fran and Anna visit us on Friday morning to do another science activity while we made pots and wrote Amazon food reports. Everyone who dressed up looked fantastic and Mrs. Pittaway painted beautiful minibeast designs all afternoon.

Autumn Week

This week we have tried many different Design and Technology activities with the theme Autumn.We did something different every day with a different teacher in a different classroom! Miss Bryce did willow weaving, Miss Cartright did leaf printing, Mrs Stanley made Autumn mobiles, Mrs Osborn made apple crumbles and Mrs Hobbs did Environmental art in the forest. It was great fun!

We even had a Halloween theme on Friday. Can you guess what this is?
