  • Autumn Spelling Bee

    Published 09/12/19

    On Thursday 5th December, for KS1 and Friday 6th December for KS2, the school held a spelling bee challenge for the children. The children who were chosen to participate were given words to learn in advance. On the day, from those words children were given random combinations to spell correctly. We aimed to have a champion per year group, but for many this wasn’t possible because of how well prepared some of the children were! The children subsequently won points for their team: 40 for the winner, 30 for 2nd place and so on. All children were very enthusiastic through this and enjoyed this event very much. I would like to thank all the children, parents and teachers for helping the children to prepare and learn these words. Fantastic!

  • YN Trip to the Park

    Published 02/12/19

    On Friday, 29th November, the Nursery children and their parents explored Hyrstlands Park.

    In Nursery, the children have been learning about autumn this half-term and they were excited to get the opportunity to look for all the different signs of autumn.

    The day before the trip we discussed going on a leaf hunt with the children.  They were excited to show their parents how to follow the tick sheet to find all the different objects in the park.

    As soon as we arrived, the hunt was in full swing. The children took great delight in finding leaves of all different colours and sizes, berries and more. Mrs Glover and I were really impressed at the range of rich language the children were using; narrating their experience to their parents.

    After a fun morning collecting as much as they could, we finished the trip by visiting the climbing frames in the park. The children were keen to explore the equipment and put their physical skills to work.

    A lovely day was had by all!
