On Friday the children in Reception performed their worship about "The Very Greedy Bee" to th whole school. They were a little nervous but all performed really well.









This morning we said goodbye to our butterflies. They all flew away successfully.

Science Week

This week we asked the children the question

Can you make a Haribo grow?

We looked at Haribo sweets and linking it to our growing outside we decided that to grow it might need water. We also decided to see what would happen if we put a Haribo into different liquids. We chose milk and oil as we had tested a Gingerbread man in these last term.



"They smell sweet"        "They taste yummy"

"The one in the water has got bigger and it has lost its shape."

"The one in the milk has lost it's colour"

"The water steals the Gummi bear's colour"

Our Big Question is 


Why can't an elephant be a pet? 


Reception have been learning to dance like the animals in our story this week.We have been Waltzing, doing the Tango and the Cha Cha Cha. Then we did some fast spins and twirls in the Rock and Roll.








What a fantastic we all had!

As part of our topic on careers we had a visit from Inspector Jim Hill today. The children were very excited and asked lots of interesting questions.




This morning Mrs Edwards came in to talk to the children about her job as Cabin Crew for Thomas Cook.









This week the zoo sent us a tiger and the story about

The Tiger Who Came To Tea.

Last week we wrote a letter to the zoo asking if they could send us a pet. Today we received a parcel.

Inside was an elephant and a book about Elmer. We are going to find out some facts about elephants this week.  



Last term we asked why the tortoise was asleep and Mrs Habart brought her tortoise from home for us to see. This morning Sheldon, the tortoise, came back to school now that he is awake. The children were very excited to see him!






 The children in Reception have been working with the children in Year 5.They have been making and playing some Maths games together and reading stories to one another.




We all enjoyed ourselves!
