Thank you.

Children learning from home - all work books from this year are ready to be collected from school at your earliest convenience please.
WELL DONE to Ivy, Tymek and Alfie.... you have earned certificates last week!! Keep an eye for them in the post.

Last week, as well as our usual learning, we got to stretch our muscles using the parachute (sanitised and aired thoroughly for 72hours after use). We were VERY lucky on Wednesday, Essex Ice's visited us.

Welldone to these superstars for receiving last weeks certificates! Freddy and Antonio, keep an eye out in the post for yours.

Wonderful work! Lots of home learning to be proud of!!

As well as all of our other learning this week, we have been doing lots of hands on 'stuff'... keeping an eye on our bug hotel, which, now has some inhabitants! We have been tidying our outside area and making 3D minibeasts!

Class certificates this week, well done! Phoebe, please look out for a certificate in the post, good girl for doing your home learning!!

In Class 1 this week we have been learning about minibeasts. We made our very own Class bug hotel, it is in the orchard and we are going to investigate and observe any changes that have happened to it over the weekend next week. We went on a bug hunt and have been learning about odd and even numbers and numberbonds to 20. Thats just a little of what we have done!! Yesterday we even had ice lollies to cool us down!!

Someone was happy to receive their certificate this week! Well done!
