Edible Easter Gardens

Ladybirds Class have really enjoyed our 'Dinner Time!' topic which has been all about food. Today, we have completed our topic in a perfect way ... by making an edible Easter Garden. We used green icing for grass, the Jammie Dodger was the tomb and the Malteser was the rock that was moved away. We also decorated with cheerful star sprinkles to show that it is good news that Jesus rose again.

Happy Easter!

This morning we held our Easter Service in the church and it was wonderful to see so many parents, carers, friends and family joining us. Children performed songs, prayers and poems. Members of Pine Martens class acted out the stations of the cross and three brave children performed solos. We wish you all a very Happy Easter and a wonderful holiday!

Pizza

Well, in Ladybirds Class we are really enjoying our 'Dinner Time' topic this half term! We have discovered that we all really like food and have got lots of questions about it. This week we have been reading 'The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza' and have found it really interesting learning about unusual food like mozzarella. This afternoon we added toppings to pizzas and were able to have a small slice in school, before then taking some home to share with our families.

Silly Socks Day!

The whole school have come into school wearing crazy socks today! Thank you so much for all the donations, which will help to raise awareness for World Down Syndrome Day.

Baking Bread

Ladybirds Class have been learning how to bake bread this morning. We have been reading 'The Giant Jam Sandwich' this week and we enjoyed being Bap the Baker when we were kneading the dough: "Thump it! Bump it! Bang it all about!" It was such lovely weather this afternoon, that we decided to have a picnic outside. Mrs Griffiths cut the loaf into slices, and we enjoyed eating a piece of homemade bread and butter outside. We then had sometime on the adventure playground. We are looking forward to sharing a bread roll with our families as we are all bringing one home this afternoon!

World Book Day

We finally got to celebrate World Book Day yesterday, and the children loved coming into school in their costumes. This year's theme was 'Noah's Ark', and we had a real menagerie of creatures coming through the school gate! There were goats, cats, snow leopards, cheetahs, foxes and snakes to name but a few! Even the staff took part and Mrs Green was buzzing round like a bumblebee all day! Thank you so much to all the parents and carers for helping organise the outfits.

Winner!

One of the members of Ladybirds was presented with a certificate today because she won a competition to design a poster for Big Energy Saving Week. I am sure yo u will agree that her poster is fantastic!

Jotter Pods

Over the last few weeks, children in Ladybirds Class have been bringing in empty crisp tubes .... and today, they found out why! Every child chose some wrapping paper and decorated their pot. After writing their name on a label, they then waited to see what it was for. Everyone was very excited to be given some colourful paper, new pencils and bright pens. We are really hoping our new Jotter Pods will help us with our independent writing. We can take them anywhere and use them to write words, sentences and ideas. For example, we can take them into out outside area when we are exploring in the sand, or even jot down some ideas whilst in the role-play area. This afternoon, however, we ve
