We had a great day exploring.

The children from Eagles and Woodpeckers joined each other and had great fun completing a treasure hunt.

We all had great fun including the adults, the children loved receiving their treasure prize…

#Gooderstone Water Gardens and Nature Trail 14 January

We all had great fun an enjoyed another hands on learning experience.

Snakes and Ladders 22 November

On Friday 22nd November Woodpeckers Class received two new members, say Hello to Snakes and Ladders. The children enjoyed a trip to Baytree pet centre , they had to pay the bus driver to take them,and brought our new pets along with all the essential items. The children decided on the pets, toys and names for the new members and will now take responsibility of caring for them.

Children In Need 15 November

Today the children all made such a great effort and looked brilliant in their yellow and spotty outfits. We have chosen a winner for every class for the most creative costume. So far today we have raised £64.40.

Thank you to all that has taken part and made a donation.

Cinema Trip

The Year 1 children thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the cinema today, we watched Secret Life of Pets 2. Once back in school we discussed the film and which animal would make the best classroom pet? This was a great discussion……watch this space for the new member of Woodpecker Class.

Inkpot Farm

Today Woodpeckers class visited Inkpot Farm. The Inkpot is an 18 acre field working farm where owner Hannah gave Woodpeckers a guided tour. The children explored the vegetable garden, picking and tasting some of the crops, collected eggs from the chicken coop, visited the Turkeys and met Socks and Dictus the Rams. We all went on a nature walk spotting lots of different flowers and ended up at the beehives, where we tasted some of the home grown honey. Last but not least all the children got to use the toilet that I’m sure none had experienced before. A compost toilet, I think they all enjoyed pouring the sawdust down the hole!

EYFS Reading Café

With Halloween around the corner we chose to read the story Funny Bones, helping find the skeletons someone to scare. Following the story with their adult who joined us in school we created our own skeletons.

Lunchtime Award 20 September

The Midday Supervisors decided all the new reception children deserved a lunchtime award for settling in well and making new friends.
