Snack Time Is Social Time

Our children love to share fun and laughter together. We enjoy spending time with them. My favourite time of the day is snack time and the preparation for it. It’s an opportunity to share conversations as well as showing off beautiful manners and wonderful social skills.

Everyone has enjoyed foraging for their snack.

The children who wouldn’t ordinarily taste certain foods have had a taste AND enjoyed it!

We have picked raspberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and gooseberries from the school gardens. All of which was closely supervised.

In our garden we are growing beetroots, carrots, sweetcorn, runner-beans, tomatoes, lettuces and radishes.

We compared pulling out our first radish to finding gold!

Radishes are a little spicy.

Sometimes we have our snack outdoors.

The children invited Incy Wincy Spinder to our table one day. It promoted a lot of speech.

Although we appreciate that life can be hectic, setting aside time to share a meal is a very precious, educational experience.  If you could do it once or twice a week, we’re sure that you would enjoy it too.

Mrs Lane and I wish you a fun, safe summer break. We will be back on Wednesday 5th  September.

Year 6 Disco

Dear parents and carers,

Just to remind you, the year 6 disco is next Tuesday (24th July) from 4pm – 5:30pm. The pupils will be dismissed as usual at 3:15pm to get ready etc and will then need to return to the Junior Hall at 4pm for the start of the disco.

Please make sure that you have made myself and Mrs Walker-Jones aware of collection arrangements for your child.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hickling

Winding Down

We’ve had a super busy week this week. Everyone has been preparing for the summer holidays. Here is a little  snap shot:

Winding, twirling, swirling, bubble blowing.

Winding down is fun!

Rinsing the toys and equipment was fun. The children have a great aim.

Our birthday boy had a cake created for him by one of our inventive children.

Our children love books. These puppet books have been a huge hit.

Tipping sand into the paint added texture to the lion.

Everyone has helped with cleaning the toys and equipment.

We created “muddy puddles.” Great for lots of jumping and splashing.

Our last  day of school will be Wednesday 25th July. It’s going to be exciting!!
