Happy New Year and welcome back to school. We will be learning all about dinosaurs this half term and will be digging for bones and fossils, making our own dinosaur skeletons and joining in with lots of exciting dinosaur themed activities.

Santa Trip

Reception and some of Nursery had a great time visiting Santa Yesterday! We made Santa hats, baubles for our Christmas Trees, jigsaws and hot hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire.  Finally we met the main man himself...Santa!!!  It was a magical morning!!  Have a look at the pictures below!


We had a brilliant Halloween Day in our Forest School.   We all had a try of Pumpkin soup and some of us really enjoyed it, we also had some witches brew!!!  We enjoyed making mud Spiders and going on a treasure hunt looking for delicious treats.  Have a look at the pictures below...don't be too scared with our Halloween costumes!

Reception have enjoyed their first visit to our Forest School!! We went on a Scavenger Hunt to see what we could find! 

We have recently been on a walk around our local area.  We found lots of interesting things.  We also went to ASDA to buy some biscuits to have with our milk as a special treat. 



Every week we are exploring our outdoors through Forest School.  We are having an amazing time finding lots of interesting creatures and objects and talking and listening to our friends.  We have even made hot chocolate and bread around the camp fire - Mrs Reid was proud because we all had a try.  "This is really fun" a child commented during Forest School.

Zoo and Jungle animals

As part of our topic we have had some very special visitors in school today.  We had great fun meeting our new friends, take a look...

Zoo and Jungle Animals

Our topic this term is all about animals.  We have had a trip to the pet shop where we bought our very own pets, two fish called Socks and Sparkle.  More photos to come...


At Christmas time the children enjoyed a Christmas party where they had a special visitor.  All children received a special gift from Santa.  We were very lucky to have a class trip to Beamish Museum to visit Santa and feed the reindeer.  

Our Trip to the Post Office

In September we all wrote a letter to someone from home.  We put it in an envelope and went to the Post Office in Felling to send it.  We went into the Post Office to buy some stamps from the lady behind the counter.  We then stuck a stamp on our envelopes and posted them in the Post Box.  We hope the letters were all received! :)
