We've recently enjoyed our first forest school trip 🌿🐌🐞
Lots of climbing, balancing, exploring, swinging, building and bug hunting. We also were excited to spot a fairy door, we had an exciting time throwing leaves all over ourselves and lots of team work to overcome the feeling of being unsteady and the worry of stinging nettles. We had a lovely time and can't wait to go again!!!
So much fun making apple crumble
and eating it!!! We chopped up the apples that we'd collected from our apple tree and then made the crumble together. It was YUMMY!!
Learning to use scissors safely and with control.
We have had a very busy first term.
Lots of outside play and learning if all weathers.
TO OUR NEW
A SUPER SUNNY DAY TODAY
Lots and lots of water play/exploration.
A REALLY HUGE
FOR THE FANTASTIC SUPPORT
FROM PARENTS AND STAFF
ON OUR COMMUNITY DAY
We are incredibly grateful to you all for coming along and for those that donated things and weren't able to make it. Despite the overcast weather we more than exceeded our hopes and had help to make some really creative pieces of equipment to benefit the children.
Thank you so so much.

We enjoyed sledging down the mound on trays, building snowmen, throwing snowballs, making snowcream (ice cream with snow) and making snow angels!!
ROBOTS VISIT CLASS 2
?The children enjoy experimenting with moving and programming a variety of robots for the afternoon. Some robots that are almost the height of the children and others that are very much smaller! There are robots that have remote controls connected and others that are not, robots controlled by following a light source, a robot that had a camera attached and even a robot that could climb up a window!
Some fantastic creations
