24th June 2019


This week the school were taking part in “Road Safety Week”. In Nursery we dressed up as people who help us and thought about the jobs they do.


We had a visit from Autumn who is part of the road safety team. She taught us a great song “Stop, Look and Listen, before you cross the street”. It has a very important message which has hopefully been shared at home too.

Our “Big Questions” centered around the book “The Duck in the Truck” by Jez Alborough who is our Author of the moment. We found out about different vehicles that use roads and also about the forces of pushing and pulling.

We had great fun working together to push and pull a very large tyre. We found out that using a rope and several people was the most effective way to move it.

We then moved on to finding out about wind power and enjoyed sharing the story “Mrs Mopple’s Washing”. The children were set a challenge to try to move the washing on our line without touching it. They came up with fantastic ideas but the best was to take it outside and let the real wind blow it!

Our bean and sunflower seeds have all grown which amazed everyone. We have now sent them home so that the children can continue to enjoy them. Don’t forget to post pictures of their progress on Tapestry!

We are hoping that our families will be able to join us on Wednesday 26th June at 9:30am for our annual Foundation Sports Day. The current forecast looks good so we are keeping everything crossed that it stays that way!
