What an exciting week we had last week! It all started with a crash landing in our classroom and some yellow footprints leading away from the mess of mashed up spaceship and moon rocks! We found a book in all the mess and worked out that it must have been Beegu who landed in our classroom. Beegu is a very friendly alien and she was looking for some small earth creatures to be friends with, we thought we were just the people for the job! After Beegu's spaceship ended in in such a terrible mess, we made our own spaceship role play — everyone played a part to make something and get involved. There has been some fabulous imaginative play going on, especially when the alien dressing up clothes came out! We also put our acting skills to the test this week as we worked together to retell the story of Beegu and think about would a good friend would do to help her feel more welcome.

In our motor skills sessions after lunch, Reception have been 'dancing' with their pencils, building all the important muscles they will need to correctly form their letters. We had a great time practising our up and down and side to side with a pencil in each hand!!

On Thursday it rained and rained so much that we had a small flood! The reception children were intrigued to find out what was happening in our outside area so we went exploring. We carefully crossed the river that had formed and then used it to practise our newly learnt phonics sounds by dipping paint brushes in the water. We also did lots of capacity work, filling up containers and clearing some of the water away!

For our muddy Friday activity we went out to do some clearing and pruning in our garden area. We pulled up lots of weeds, dug over the soil ready for planting some bulbs and pruned the herbs in the mud kitchen!

The children have all started phonics lessons this week. Reception children have been working really hard to remember the sounds we have learnt and have a go at writing them, whilst the Little Wrens have been enjoying some sound walks and rhyme time. Reception children have also now all brought home a reading book, please do read these together and practise telling the story. We will do our best to change books each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Enjoy these lovely photos,
Miss Pitchford

The children in Base 4 have been getting creative and engaging their inner designers this first week back.We've been designing moving bridges, like the cantilever lift bridge in the village. We looked at different designs of moving bridge from around the world. We then designed and built our own designs. It was great to see the different designs the children came up with, including lift...

As part of their Africa — Ancient Egypt focus for the summer, we briefly looked at and discussed Tutankhamun's death mask before moving on to explore the ceramic masks of a contemporary artist, Kimmy Cantrell.We had a great few days of investigating his ideas, designing and creating our own in his style. We're really proud of...
