Autumn Term 2 - Chocolate!

We had a special delivery on our return to school; not only did the children receive golden tickets during the holidays but we had a box filled with different types of chocolate!  Of course, once the children had finished all their learning for the day we shared it around and we all enjoyed exploring the different taste, textures and smells.

Autumn Term 1 - Circus Topic Projects.

Thank you so much for all your efforts in producing our first topic projects - the children's circuses were amazing and all individually styled.  Mr Young and Miss Connor were very impressed and have loved teaching this topic during the last eight weeks!

Also, a huge thank you to the parents who came in to share our learning on Friday morning, we hope you enjoyed our activities and seeing what we have been getting up to in school.

Autumn Term 1 - Our trip to Blackpool Tower Circus

We had lots of fun on our trip to the circus.  Jamie, our guide, introduced us to our surroundings and in our session taught us how to juggle! It was a little bit tricky but we were resilient.  After that we had our lunch sat on the top tier of the famous Tower Ballroom, it was magnificent! There were even people dancing around to the music from the organ.

Once we'd finished, it was finally time to go and watch the circus.  The ring was all lit and soon Mr Boo and Mooky the clown appeared to introduce the show.  It was so funny but some of the performances were very daring the performers were very brave and must have been practicing for a long time.. It was that good, we all had our own favourite part!
