Wow Moments!    

We had a fabulous time at Fairburn Ings on Monday the 20th May. We enjoyed learning all about different birds, birds diets and life-cycles, bird songs, minibeasts and their homes, as well as capturing and releasing minibeasts from the ground, the bushes and the trees . We built our own bird nests and enjoyed a lovely picnic in the sunshine with Elm class.


This term we have enjoyed looking at life cycles and to help us we have hatched out own chicks. We made sure the eggs were cared for and safe in the incubator, and then loved watching them hatch into chicks. We have also received some caterpillars in the post and are waiting to watch them form their cocoons, and turn into butterflies.


September's new starters have started to visit the school and have enjoyed exploring the classroom and are getting to know their teachers and new friends.



Early Years Information

Early Years will be participating in the sponsored walk on Friday 17th May around the school field to help raise money for new sports and play equipment.

We have a planned trip to Fairburn Ings on Monday the 20th May and are looking forward to learning about mini-beasts and birds in the planned activities.

We are busy practising our summertime songs ready for our next assembly-coming up soon.
