It is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Base 1! The stage is up and our Christmas performance rehearsals were in full swing last week. We are very excited to be sharing these with you very soon!

We also spent time preparing for the Christmas Fair. Everyone in Base 1 created a lovely candle table decoration using festive greenery such as ivy and holly. We learnt about the job of a florist and said that at this time of year florists are very busy making decorations just like these and also wreaths for our front doors. The children loved doing this, they were so patient and careful to try and cover as much of the base as they could. I think you will agree they are beautiful, and certainly sold very well on Friday evening (with a little help from our enthusiastic salespeople!). We do have a few left if you didn't manage to buy one on Friday, just let me know and we will keep one for you.

On Friday, we had an especially exciting morning and a very special visitor! Father Christmas came to see us and brought some of his reindeer for us to meet. Everyone got to meet Father Christmas, telling him that they had been very well behaved and always go to bed at the right time, and even came away with a little present to keep us going until Christmas Day. What a fabulous way to end the week! For the Little Wrens who were not able to come and see Father Christmas on Friday he did leave me a little something for you, so if a present comes home over the next week or so that is who it is from!

We look forward to seeing you at all of various performances we have going on this week.

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...

We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...

Mrs Holdsworth: Fri 14 Jun 4:34pm

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
