Year 6 had a fantastic time visiting Cadbury World. There were plenty of opportunities to bring their learning of the Aztecs and the Mayans to life during our trip, in particular during our educational talk where some of us even got to dress up! We travelled back in time to learn about the history or chocolate as well as enjoyed a tour of the factory - not forgetting opportunities to taste the chocolate too! One of our favourite parts was experiencing the 4d cinema! Super behaviour by all!

The children in Reception have been learning all about Autumn traditions.
We have had so much fun carving pumpkins and making scarecrows – Lots of sticky fingers!
We are drying out the seeds to grow our own pumpkin plants.
How exciting!

The children in Reception have been learning all about healthy eating and making healthy food choices this week.
Parents and carers have been wonderfully generous and donated so much fresh fruit that we have been able to make the most enormous and delicious fruit kebabs!
We have been so busy chopping, peeling, slicing and dicing…but more importantly we have enjoyed sharing the most scrumptious and fresh healthy food.
Yum! Yum!

 


  

  

We have also been learning how to look after our teeth and keep them healthy. We have been talking about which food and drink is bad for our teeth and how the dentist can help us to keep our teeth healthy. We have been following instructions to learn how to brush our teeth properly and even took a new toothbrush home with us! Our learning has been so much fun!

Year 3 were very lucky to welcome Alexis Deacon into their classroom, the day after they saw him at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre!
 
Firstly, Year 3 were shown how to turn a simple shape into a character by adding eyes and a beak. The children then worked with Alexis to name the character and build a character profile. Year 3 were then able to try it out for themselves, and the results were outstanding. Everybody created at least one character and they were all able to describe what their character liked and disliked.  Finally these new characters were shared with Alexis who was amazed at the results. The session finished with all the Year 3 children receiving one of Alexis Deacon’s signed books – ‘A Place to Call Home’ to take home and share with their families.
 
What an amazing experience for us all and one that we will always remember.

Years 2 and 3 were given an amazing opportunity to visit Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, which they all thoroughly enjoyed.
 
Once seated the children were introduced to the acclaimed picture book author and illustrator Alexis Deacon.
 
Alexis was able to share his love of drawing with the children as well as bringing his books to life by reading some of his favourite stories – Croc and Bird, Beegu and I am Henry Finch.
 
Some of the children were inspired to start to draw their own illustrations when they got back to school.
 
Keep your eyes and ears open for the next Alexis Deacon.

School Nurse visited the children in Nursery and Reception to teach them all about ‘hand hygiene’ and how to wash their hands correctly.
She brought a special machine which used an ultraviolet light to show the children any germs left on their hands after they had washed them – we were all absolutely fascinated by this!
She taught us all how to wash the different parts of our hands to make sure that we do not leave any germs behind.
The children in Early Years definitely have the cleanest hands around after today’s learning!
