Base 2 have been busily researching the school's history and trying to answer the question 'How old is the school?' At the beginning of the week they were preparing questions to ask Mr Eaton, who was a pupil at the school, for when they interview him next week. They are very excited about this and have written some super question sentences.
On Thursday, the children were taken on a walk in and around the school (not crossing bubbles!) to find clues...they found lots, including an original school desk/bench and a slate for writing on! Their comparative and descriptive language as well as their reasoning was fantastic.
At the front of school, we began to look closely at the building itself — what a beautifully designed building it is with all its different brick work and design features, a wonderful front door and of course the belfry tower! We sketched the school from the roadside. Back indoors, we watched a short video 'Austin's Butterfly' (worth a look!) and then went back outside to try a second draft, inspired to look a little more closely. Some huge improvements followed!
On Friday, the children used pen (for their first time) on coffee stained paper to draw the school for their Learning Journey books. A few, poignantly-placed, red poppies completed their work. Enjoy some of their amazing drawings including Zach and Scout' work.

Base 1 have had a very busy week. We started off the week by wearing odd socks to show that we are all different and unique. It is ok to be different because if we were all the same life would be very boring. We talked about staying safe when we might be using our grown ups phones or ipads and what to do if we are unsure if something pops up that we shouldn't play or be looking at. Reception...

The Little Wrens wore our odd socks at the start of this week to show that we are all different and should just be ourselves. We joined the school in a zoom anti-bullying assembly and loved dancing to Andy and the Oddsocks music video. The children enjoyed the book Simon Sock, a story celebrating differences. Simon is an odd sock who is trying to find his perfect pair. We then got creative and...
