    02/07/2018 - We were visited by PCSO Stagg and PC Coombs today. They shared information with us in an assembly.  We learnt when we should and should not ring 999 and all about what different police wear and do. Then we got to have a look in a police car (the siren's were very loud!) and dress up.

    We went in search of the animals that might live in the wood. We looked out for their homes, footprints and other evidence that they had been in there eg animal poo! If you go for a walk in the woods, you might like to take some of the identification sheets with you. They are attached below...

    Travelling to the Arctic

    This week our rocket has taken us to the Arctic.  We have learnt about animals that live there. We have read a story about a polar bear and we wrote our own stories about a polar bear too.  We all got very cold playing with some ice!

    Space Sounds

    We listened to some ' Nasa Space Sounds'  - https://www.youtube.com/watch?=Qr4BnW_GlfU Then we created our own piece of music, telling the story of a rocket's space adventure. We drew some pictures (see below) to show the things that we could meet on our space journey and this became our 'musical score!' We then created sounds using our voices to represent the different parts of the journey - video to follow! Why don't you ask your child to do a performance for you at home...

    Thank you to 'Help a Hedgehog Hospital' (http://helpahedgehog.org/index.php) who came into school and taught us all about hedgehogs. We were very excited when they introduced us to one of their hedgehogs 'Ward.' Thank you to all the parents who sent in the donations of cat food, they were very gratefully received. After the visit, the Year 1s wrote some facts that they had learnt in their English books, some children chose to make Hedgehog pictures using forks to make 'spines' or leaves to make hedgehog beds and we even sang a song about hedgehogs. I've attached the words so that you can sing along at home!
    We had a lovely time at The Community Orchard today.  The children tasted lots of varieties of apples and we made our own juice, it was delicious!!!
