    Monday 12th July

    We used Euro 2021 as our inspiration and had a football themed day.  We did some writing, craft made football stadiums with blocks and played with marbles and orbees.  The children loved starting their day practising their football playing skills - we think we have some future England hopefuls!

    Friday 9th July

    Kestrels Class had a visit from Luke and some of his feathered friends. The children had lots of questions and their knowledge was fantastic. They were particularly taken with the owls as we have read stories about Albert and Olive, the barn owls, and how their calls found each other!

    5th July Inside Our Wonderful Bodies!

    30th June - Today we released our butterflies into the wild. We were sad to say goodbye but we know there are lots of lovely flowers for them to enjoy in the school grounds.

    28.06.21 On Monday morning we watched a butterfly come out of it's chrysalis and by Tuesday we had 3 butterflies. We wonder if the last 2 will also 'hatch' butterflies!
