Friday 1st February

What a Chilly week! We had great fun exploring the ice and finding tools that would crack it, we measured how thick the ice was and even helped some penguins escape from the ice. We had fun freezing water in number shapes and touched everything that was frozen in the garden. The snow was fantastic, Austin, Charlie, Jake, Devon and Olive moved lots of snow around to build a wall to stop people from using the wet, cold slide.

Miane received a certificate for her excellent design and building of her bird feeder. Everyone has seen lots of birds eating our bird food this week.

Lead Learners this week were Grace, who enjoyed a snail race game,  Seth, who enjoyed making his bird feeder,  Emma who wrote some brilliant Numicon sums and Charlotte, who made a fantastic tape measure.

Grace, Eva and Immi enjoyed ‘cracking’ pebbles in the mud kitchen, pretending they were eggs!

We all enjoyed the story ‘365 Penguins’ and did lots of number activities for Number day today.

Friday 25th January

We have all worked really hard designing, writing a list of things we need to make a bird feeder and making our bird feeders.

Charlotte told a fantastic woodland animal story in our forest so she definitely deserved her certificate.

Happy new year Everyone and welcome back Ducklings! We have had a very busy start back to school learning about owls, take a look at the pictures below. We had a visit from Arthur the Tawny Owl and Jonny the Barn Owl,  we learnt all about the colour of their eyes, we even got to hold Arthur on our arm. It was very exciting even though Johnny was a bit flighty!

We have all worked hard to help turn our classroom into a forest so we can learn about and pretend to be woodland animals. Come and have a look, we are very proud of it! We have started to learn the story ‘Owl Babies’ and are having lots of stories in the forest!

Friday 16th November

We had a BIG shock on Monday, we had had a break in!! PC Frost came to see Mrs. Tutin as she found flour and footprints all over the Bakery leading outside to the fence. PC frost left a police report saying that the forensic tests had decided it was a fox! We think it was after the Gingerbread man, but we haven’t made any yet, we need to read our recipe first!!

Charlie, Seth and Miane have been busy making a gingerbread house and gingerbread men. All the children have has a go at telling the story and drawing pictures to go with it, we are super impressed!

We had a visit from Bethany and Benjamin who talked to us about Road safety, Katie and Eva did a very good job of looking after Benjamin and making sure he had his seatbelt on!

We loved dressing up for Children in need today, we all look fabulous!

Friday 9th November

We have had an extremely busy week! We have been exploring fireworks with chalk, paint, glitter and rolling balls in the paint, we also made some delicious sparklers for us to eat!

We have been learning about the Hindu festival of light, Diwali, we listened to a little girl telling us all about how she celebrates Diwali, Grace remembered that she was called Jessica. We made clay divas, rangoli patterns with pens and rice.

We loved our first reading cafe, we read the story ‘The very helpful hedgehog’ and made soooo many hedgehogs. Thank you to all the Mums, dads and Grandparents who came in to join the fun, it was lovely to see you all enjoying time with your children!

Today we went out on the village green with the whole school to have 1-minute silence to remember, as Zachy said, the people who died in the Battle, and we were very well behaved!

Friday 2nd November

Welcome back after a much needed half term break. We hope everyone got plenty of rest, this half term is going to be a busy one!

It looked like the children thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween disco and there were some fantastic, scary costumes, thank you to FOWPS for all the time and effort they put in.

We have had a busy first week back, we have been learning all things Autumn and Halloween.

We looked carefully at a variety of pumpkins and painted them, we scooped out the contents and had fun playing with it. We made lots of spiders and counted their legs and eyes. We started our new maths snack and have been counting conkers, leaves and having a go at leaf pictures, talking about the shapes and types of leaves we found.

Friday 21st September

Welcome to Ducklings!

We have been having so much fun settling into our new class and school. The children are happy, are eager to try lots of new activities,  are making new friends and are getting used to the class routines.

Bella, Charlotte, Faye, Emma, Zachy, Jake, Holly, Eva and Imogen have been ‘little star’ so far, the children are keen to complete challenges and show us how good they are.

PE was a huge success this week, the changing was…hectic, all went out in their correct PE kit and hopefully went home in the correct clothes and the correct way round?!

The Roast dinner was yummy, fish and chips are always a hit and they have been eating plenty and learning the Lunchtime routines well.

We look forward to seeing your children become much more independent as they start next week.
