Winter Assembly and Holidays!

`Well done to the children for putting on such a great show last Friday. They really worked so hard on their lines and songs and I was very proud of them! If you have any pictures of the children you can email them to me and I can upload them here if you'd like.



















The video will be uploaded soon, for you to have a look at over the Winter break, enjoy :)  
Also, the children have learned so much this term and they really are settled and doing well so I'm looking forward to next term and for us all to learn about so many other new things. 
Thanks a million to all of the parents, grandparents, minders etc for all your support this term, I really appreciate it. 
Have a wonderful Winter break and a very happy new year, see you all in 2017! 

Winter Assembly Costumes

Hi everyone, 
The children's costumes looked great today and they loved wearing them in school so thank you to the parents that sent them in, I really appreciate all your efforts. If your child brought costumes into school, I have sent them back home in their bags today and it would be great if they could come in on Friday wearing their full costume. For anyone who has not sent in a costume, please dress your child appropriately (see blog for costume ideas or email me if you need further guidance).
See you all on Friday at 9.15am! 
Kind regards,  Jessica

Science Week

The children had a great week last week taking part in Science Week. Every day, the children made their own 'inventions' and we learned about pushing, pulling and gravity. We even had a scientist come in and visit us!

We went to the 5th classes to look at their projects for the Science Fair and we all thought they were brilliant, well done to them.











Some of the children in our class dressed up as crazy scientists, they definitely looked the part!
