We were very lucky today as Mrs Oulds has brought in her melodion to show the children. The children were fascinated and asked lots of questions and really enjoyed the music.
The children have settled in brilliantly and have got stuck in to their learning. We have been reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the children are really enjoying acting the story out together.
Well done to everyone who made an Easter bonnet for our competition. They were all fabulous!
We had a fab time learning all about cricket today when we had specialist cricket coaches in to work with us.
We have been talking about things that make us happy. The children have asked for a show and tell Day tomorrow. They can bring in one thing from home that they love (as long as parents are happy for it to be brought in) to talk about and show to our friends.
The children have shared their amazing experiences of the snow and all the different ways they enjoyed it. It is wonderful to know that they have been able to explore the rare occasion that the Isle of Wight has had snow.
The children look fantastic in their costumes.
In school we are sharing the story: The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywelt. The crayons are so fed up with being used for the same old thing. The children have decided to make their own picture and maybe using their colours differently.
Today the eggs have arrived at school and we are all very excited. We have set up the incubator and the eggs have been put in. Some of the children have worked hard to make a calendar to count the days to hatching.
We have had great fun playing in the snow today. The children will be coming home in their wellies today in case you need them tomorrow morning. Please can I ask that the children bring them in every day in case we need them in school too. Their school shoes are in their book bags. Please can I also request that all children have hats, scarves, gloves and coats in school as we do play outside and the children will need them to keep warm. Enjoy the snow everyone and stay safe.
We have had a wonderful time being wrapped up and digging in the mud pit today. Ask us about what we found and how the ground felt to dig in.
