Tutoring has kicked off in school and in total, 96 children will be receiving at least 15 hours of small group tuition with our teachers. Most of this is taking place before and after school and it so lovely to have children in enjoying their learning over this extended day. This tutoring is part of our covid catch up plan and gives us all the opportunity to deal with any learning gaps and make sure everyone is where they need to be.
Breaktimes are all about spending time with friends, letting off steam and playing games. We work hard and we play hard.
A HUGE well done to all the children and families who participated in the holiday project, visited the Queen’s House and viewed the painting ‘Ship of Fools’ by Kehinde Wiley. The quality of the learning has been exceptional and we have really enjoyed seeing what the children have produced and speaking with them of their thoughts and feelings about the painting and its context. We are so impressed with all their ideas and insights.

Wild Science visited our Nursery yesterday. The children were introduced to Barry the bearded dragon, Freda the tree frog, Millie the giant millipede, Sally the corn snake, Charlie the chinchilla and Terry the tarantula. The children learned interesting facts about each of the creatures… For example, did you know that a tarantula has eight legs and two arms? The children were given the opportunity to hold or stroke all of the creatures. They all behaved beautifully as always. Well done Kipper class!
It’s Christmas lunch day and we are having a fun time – a huge thanks to Emma and her dream team for our lovely lunches all year and great to see our friend Vicky back to help out. Merry Christmas everyone !!
What’s the time Mr Wolf ?? Our Active Squad are back in action and encouraging all our children to be physically active each playtime. Let’s get moving !!
We are getting ready for next Spring and hoping to attract some more nesting birds. You may remember that we had robins nesting in our air conditioning unit earlier this year. We just had the unit serviced and you can see what the birds had used to create a lovely home for their babies. Our plan is to block off the unit and provide an alternative which will hopefully attract them in 2022. We’ll keep you posted as our plans develop.
