Could you make a cake and write the recipe?
Can you read a new story from the library and write about your favourite part?

2) Practice your handwriting using the sheets provided.

3) Learn the days of the week for a spelling test when we get back to school.

4) Keep practicing your common exception words for the first Friday spelling test when we are back.

Enjoy your time off with your families.

Happy Easter!

Mothers Day Afternoon Tea Celebration

We had a wonderful Afternoon Tea to celebrate what a fantastic job our mums and grandma’s do on a daily basis.  It was one little way of showing how much the children appreciate them.

The Nursery children baked some scones and made pretty beaded bracelets for their mums and female carers.  We made some sandwiches and bought some cakes so that we could have a tea party with those special to us and spend some quality time together.

Who would have thought our Nursery could be transformed into a beautiful dining room!

Making our own chocolate

Class 7 have made chocolate..yes we have made chocolate!

We wanted to be like Willy Wonka and make our own so we collected the utensils we would need and then gathered the ingredients: cocoa butter, cocoa powder, coconut oil and honey.

Each group also had a different ingredient to add to their chocolate; biscuits, cranberries, raisins and marshmallows.

We blended the butter and oil together to soften it and then Mrs Rowe melted it on a small hob.

Then we added the cocoa powder which turned the mixture brown.


Next we added our own ingredient, mixed them together and transferred each of them to a baking tin.


The mixture was then put in the fridge for an hour until they had set.

Our very own handmade from Fairtrade ingredients…delicious.

Reading Books

Dear all parents and carers,

I will be collecting the class reading books in on Thursday this week (30th March) as it is the last school day of this term for pupils. Therefore please make sure that your child has their reading book in for then.

The children will have specific homework to complete during the holidays and this will be handed out on Thursday. It is reminded that due to the two week holiday, the children will need to complete five activities/tasks from the homework that is given to them.

If you have any questions then please feel free to contact me.

Many thanks

Mrs Hickling

Foundation Stage Easter Stay and Play Day

Don’t forget it’s the Foundation Stage Easter Stay and Play day on Tuesday 28th March.  Families are invited to spend the session with us; making Easter crafts, having Easter egg hunts outside and of course we can’t forget the parents painting competition! You will have the opportunity to spend time with your child in Nursery and the Foundation 2 classes.

The session times are as follows:

Morning session – 9am-11am

Afternoon session – 1pm-3pm

We will be having an Easter bonnet parade in the morning and afternoon.  There will be prizes for the winners and a little something for every child that has taken part.  Please bring your bonnets in the morning (or afternoon if your child has an afternoon Nursery space) with their name clearly visible.

There will also be some pocket money toys to buy if you wish.

We can’t wait to see you!
