Foundation Stage had a very exciting delivery on Monday morning of 10 eggs and an incubator.

By Tuesday night when Mrs Cook went home there was a crack on one egg.

Welcome to our LEGO City! Year 2 had an exciting opportunity to delve into the world of Lego this week, and create their own Lego community with their friends. The children worked well, both independently and in groups, to create interesting and unusual buildings from a variety of Lego bricks and parts. Some children choose to build hotels and schools, whilst others built skyscrapers and car washes. The children then created roads to join their buildings together and filled their community with street lights, forests, ponds and beautiful gardens.

Freddie Charles

Reception children have welcomed baby Freddie Charles over the last few weeks.
We have been finding out how to look after a baby. We have to be careful of his neck, giving him milk and winding him. This week we have been learning how to wash him!
