We had a fantastic time on our trip to Lotherton Hall yesterday. We took part in an interesting workshop where we got to touch snake skin and teeth and waddle around like penguins! Everyone listened really well. We had fun seeing the penguins being fed and were fascinated with all the different birds. We were very lucky to see some sunshine while we played in the park. One of the children told me that they can’t wait for the next trip already

March 2019 - We had a fab time dressing up as book characters for World Book Day. Can you work out which characters we are? 

March 2019 - We have done lots of activities to celebrate world book week including a visit to the Stamford Bridge library. The librarian showed us around and explained how the library worked and how we could join for free! She read us a story then we all had a chance to browse through the books ourselves.

February 2019 - To start our ‘Wings and Wings’ topic we had a visit from a farmer and his tractor. He showed us all the different parts of the tractor and answered questions about what they did. We all had a go at climbing up into the tractor to see what it was like in the cab.

February 2019 - We had an exciting day on Tuesday when author Eleanor McKone visited our class and shared her book ‘Piper’s Passport’ with us. The book was about a little girl who travels around Australia. As well as listening to the story, we did an activity finding different animals mentioned in the book. 

We also had a fab time celebrating Chinese New Year! We read the Chinese New Year story, made some crafts, ate Chinese food at lunchtime and then had a celebration with the whole school at the end of the day.

October 2018 - To fit in with our topic ‘Paws Claws and Feathers’ we had a visit from Battle Flatts Veterinary clinic who brought in some bearded dragons for us to feed and stroke. We also learnt about how to care for sick animals and practised on a very well behaved dog. Thank you to Evie and Hannah for teaching us all about working as a Vet!
