On Thursday 6th June all of Year 2 visited Washington Wetland Centre. As part of their Habitats topic in science they took part in three lead activities. They enjoyed pond dipping, a mini beast hunt and a map work session looking at world habitats and adaptions of the creatures living there.They had talks on otters and flamingos. They then had free time to visit the mini beast garden, the duckery, hide and of course the play park. A great time was had by all.
Every child from reception to Y6 will have the opportunity to take part in our annual egg competition. Eggs will be designed and made in school.
- Children will design and make the eggs during school time.
- It is strictly one egg per design – although children may wish to bring a spare egg in case of accidents or ‘redrafting’.
- As we have so many children in the school we are sadly unable to allow backgrounds for the designs. (The judging will be on the egg not the holder.)
- Children will be given a holder for their egg design.
- All eggs will be will be displayed at the Easter Fayre on Tuesday 2nd April and Wednesday 3rd April 2019.
- Children will have access to a wide variety of art resources in school, but if they do need something very specific they may wish to bring it with them. Please note that although ‘extras’ can be brought the majority of the egg and attachments should be made in school.
This is a fun activity, which the children thoroughly enjoy. Thank you for your support.
Here are instructions for each particular year group: –
No eggs needed.

Our Reception children enjoyed a visit from the school Dental Nurses this week to highlight how important it is to clean their teeth and how to keep their mouths healthy.
They really enjoyed the question and answer time and hands on experience with the dental equipment.
Science club has got off to a great start with ten budding Year 2 scientists. Week one saw the children engaging in a ‘Magic Ball’ activity and week two involved making a laughing chicken. The children work enthusiastically during the club and the staff are so impressed with their scientific knowledge. All of the children are currently growing an alligator at home with the help of their parents. We will all look forward to the next session.
Our children have taken part in a wide variety of different sporting events and have done extremely well.
It’s been a busy seven weeks but our reception children are well and truly settled into their new classes. Here are a few pictures of their first few days captured at the start of the term.
Martin Lightfoot from the RNLI visited school today to deliver assemblies to both our Infant and Junior children. He talked to them about the dangers of being near water and the 4 rules they can follow to keep themselves safe. The 4 rules are: Stop and Think, Stay Together, Float and Call 999 or 112. The children were very responsive to Martin’s questions and he was very impressed by them. The children who were in Mrs Allan’s class last year then presented the RNLI with a cheque for £116.40 that they had raised in the summer from the sale of artwork. The RNLI receives no government funding and relies on fundraising efforts.
