Year 1 visit to Year 2, by Miss Jones
Date: 8th Jul 2022 @ 3:36pm
Yesterday we had our transition morning for next year. As the children soon realised, nothing much is changing except our classroom! We had a lovely time exploring our new room and they all decided they loved the green walls!! We enjoyed being creative, turning a black dot into something amazing! It was so lovely to see their imaginations take them in different directions and the work they produced was magical! They were all at ease and seemed more than ready for their Year 2 journey.
We are looking forward to another wonderful year with them.

WOW! The children have been exceptional and it has been a wonderfully busy day! They have smiled all day long and it has been lovely to see their excitement as we explored the different themed rooms. It was hard to pick a favourite! We had a sunny picnic in the park which seemed to be to everyone’s delight. We are really proud of how the children behaved and respected other’s around them. Thank you to our helpers too for doing a fabulous job!

Gazebo Day 2, by Miss Jones
Date: 11th May 2022 @ 3:37pm
Today the weather was too wet to set the gazebo up outside so Year One and Jacob moved indoors. We warmed up by playing the game where the children had to clap to catch Bob the fish. We then continued to read the story and acted climbing up to the castle, going inside and meeting the giant! We were so surprised to find out that the giant was friendly. We then acted out cooking a meal from the giant to Jack. After that we climbed back down the beanstalk but it SNAPPED! The giant cried as he couldn’t get back to his castle. We then made and decorated our own leaves to put on a beanstalk.
The children have been absolute super stars and really enjoyed the last two days!
