Baby and Toddler group 

This Thursday baby and toddler group ran for the first time since the summer holidays. 
It was lovely to see new parents and children attending the group. The children have a lovely variety of toys to play with, the wooden toys being very popular. We enjoyed sitting together to share snacks then followed by singing and parachute songs.

Our group runs every Thursday during term time from 9 till 11 am in the school hall.
It is £2 per family, which includes a drink and snack for adults and child/children.
Everyone welcome.

We will be having themed sessions throughout the year..... starting with messy play next week. Please bring spare clothes as it will get rather messy!

Also, the last Thursday of each month we will be having Forest Friends sessions outside (weather permitting). Please make sure you and your child are dressed for the weather. 

Y2 Maths

Thursday 13th September

Y2 have enjoyed their Maths this week, developing their understanding of place value. We consolidated what we'd learned by using our new laptops! The children were very excited to play a game called 'Shark Numbers'. Here is the link if you'd like to play it:

Don't let your boat be eaten by the shark!

Real work with Owls!

Owl class always enjoy access to real tools in continuous provision but this week we have gained a real drill!

Even more excitement when we arrived at school this morning to find a delivery of real bricks! The children set to making cement with sand and water, using trowels to put it on the bricks and make a wall.

 The children were really proud of their work and decided they would only build a wall that was four bricks high in case it fell. Great risk assessing Owls!

Sports Day 2018

The weather was perfect for Sports' Day this year and I think it was one of the most enjoyable sports' days we have had (although I suspect I say that every year!). The children tried so hard in all their events whether they won or not and there were several 'edge of your seats' finishes. I was especially pleased with the participation this year- in so many races we had entire year groups wanting to take part- and with the sporting nature of the children. 

A huge 'well done' to all those in Chestnuts house, winner of the Sports Shield this year. It was close with Pines only just behind them and Beeches and Oaks doing very well. Also congratulations to Harley, who broke the steeplechase and sprint records, and to Oliver (YR sprint) and Fergus (Y3/4 steeplechase), who also set new school records and to Olivia, who beat her own steeplechase record.

Thank you to everyone who helped and came to support and especially to the children, who made this such a special day.
