Pirate Adventures

Our theme this week was Pirates. We have had lots of fun building our own Pirate Ship and learning about pirate life.

We started the week working on our pirate ship.

First of all we needed a Flag.

Portholes are like windows in the side of our ship.

Anchors away.

Making treasure maps using paprika paint , X marks the spot.

Digging for buried treasure was fun but unfortunately we did not find any.

One of our children came as a real life pirate, Oh ahhhh.

At the end of a swash buckling week, we were ready to set sail.

Sailing the seven seas with our friends.

Join us next week for another adventure.

A Super Day at Sudbury!

We all had a fantastic day at Sudbury Hall!

We were put to work up the chimney!

We enjoyed playing with toys from the Victorian Times.

It was really nice to sit and enjoy our lunch outside in the sunshine!

F2 Visit to the Library and Flower Park

F2 Visit to the Library and Flower Park

On Thursday 25th October the F2 children will be taking a walk to Clifton Library and the Flower Park. The aim  is to talk about the autumnal changes that are happening this time of year and to encourage children’s love of stories and books, all in the local community. Children may bring their library cards and take out some books if they wish. If this is the case, please let us know and make sure they have their book bag.

We are in need of parent helpers to accompany our walk. Unlike many of our Nursery trips, this is not a family trip. If you are able to spend the session supporting our walk, please let us know. Without extra volunteers we will not be able to leave the school site. Please complete the form at the bottom and hand it back to your child’s teacher.

Many Thanks

Mrs Smith and Mrs Litchfield

Viking Day

The Vikings came to Milford on Monday. The children spent the day learning about Viking food, artefacts and games. They then learnt all about Viking life. They were surprised by how heavy the chain-mail top was and learnt all about how gruesome and ferocious the Vikings were. They all got to hold a Viking shield, practise Viking moves and wear Viking clothes. Some of the children made a superb effort to dress up for the day. It was a fun, informative and exciting day and the children can now apply their knowledge to their class work on The Vikings.
