TARA THE SCHOOL DOG

We held a theme day (chosen by the children) which was ‘Tara the dog’! There were a lot of adults wearing dog ears and Mr D even had a special cap and t-shirt to celebrate the day. Fay and Anita also made biscuits for the children in the shape of a dog bone with a special one for Tara!

DIAMOND CLASS

In Diamond Class we had lots of fun creating lanterns to celebrate the Chinese New Year.   We performed ‘The Gingerbread Man’ experiment to see why he couldn't cross the river and why he couldn't go in the water.

OPAL CLASS

In Opal Class this week we went on a School trip to Butser Farm.  We experienced how people lived, worked and survived back in the times of the Vikings.  It was a fun-packed day with team building experiences.  This included making (wattling) a fence from hazel wood and becoming archaeologists using tools to hunt for items hidden in the soil. They also used flint on chalk to create pictures. Some children carved their initials, others found their initials on the Norse letter board. 

GOLD CLASS
