We would like to say a huge thank you to the East Stoke and Wool Community Chest for awarding us with a grant of over £800. This money has been spent on purchasing Espresso. Espresso is an interactive software programme which covers all aspects of the curriculum.
Something very strange has been happening this week: all our bog babies disappeared ! We were so concerned we had to call the police and report the missing bog babies, make wanted posters and put them up around the school. Then, would you believe it, they began to be found all around the school. Two were even found in Mrs Griffiths office ! Not all have been found though so we are still looking...... Addition: Overheard this week: "I know Bog Babies aren`t real but how do the
A busy week has seen us "find" more and more bog babies. We know what they are because we know what bog babies look like and that has helped us write about them. Wednesday saw us outside with Mr McKaigg using the kindling and pine cones we had collected from our woodland trip to build a fire which we all lit, each of us with a match.

Year 6 have been thinking about what they already know about their new topic on Circulation. In their first lesson they created learning webs to show how much they feel they know already.

Ever gone fishing for a bog baby ? We will be soon now that we know what they look like. In fact, one escaped into the classroom and it was so lonely that we had to make some bog baby friends.
