Super Learning Alert 🔥

June 08, 2020

As we are family, Naomi, Imogen and Alivia have stayed in their bubble and all worked together on last weeks homeschooling!


They have worked hard on the smartest giant in town, completing a price list and adding figures together! They have written thank you letters, designed George a new scarf, and even created their own animal with a rhyming song to add into the story!


They also discussed how George felt helping the animals and how they could help one another! They have also been busy finishing their study project of the Egyptians, and for science have been discovering how different bacteria's and virus’ affect us and how we can prevent them! 

A super well done girls! 

Lots of Love, Miss Higginson and Miss Lally

Half Term Residential Experience (at home)

May 18, 2020

With holidays cancelled and residential trips not going ahead, this will provide a safe and enjoyable way for children to enjoy the great outdoors (or indoors). Children can build a den or pitch a tent then enjoy a variety of activities just as if they were on a residential trip. This can be inside or outside, by themselves or with family members.

The attached timetable gives an example itinerary for half term week as well as some resources that can be used to support the experience. Don’t forget, timings are flexible and the timetable does not have to be followed religiously.

👍Getting Creative👍

May 05, 2020

Alivia, in Year 4 Spruce, Imogen, in Year 1 Elm and Harry in Nursery have been busy making their own wooden long boats and painting them to their own design. When they are dry they are going to have a boat race (how exciting)!  They have also been working hard learning about the plant life cycle, so today, they have planted sunflower seeds, pea seeds and cress seeds and they are going to see how long they take to grow and write up and draw their findings! I cannot wait to see your results - what a fabulous learning idea!

They are also very lucky because on top of that, the baby geese on the canal have been for a visit so they have been able to see them too! You have had a very busy day!

Thanks for your super updates, you superstars!❤️
