  • What could it be?

    Published 25/03/19, by Admin

    This morning Mrs McGarry and Mrs Spreadsbury got the fright of their lives when they found this in the garden area by the digging pit!

    All the children went out to investigate what it could be. Both Oak and Willow classes said it must be a dinosaur footprint! The children even noticed that the dinosaur had cracked the ground where it had been walking! We thought of lots of ideas about why the dinosaur might be at our school. Some thought he was hungry and was looking for children to eat, others thought he might be looking for some toys to play with.

    We thought about trapping the dinosaur so we could ask him why he visited our school and with our talk partners discussed the different ways we could trap the dinosaur.

    Chinese New Year Celebrations

    Last week Oak and Willow Class invited their grown-ups to join them to celebrate Chinese New Year. The children and their parents worked in small groups and tried a variety of different activities. The children put their cutting skills to the test to make a paper chain dragon. They then had an opportunity to colour a picture of the animal from the year they were born.

    Next the children had a go at writing the numbers 0 through to 10 in Mandarin. It was very challenging but lots of fun, zero was very tricky! Then they got the opportunity to try some Chinese food, on offer was Chinese noodles, vegetable spring rolls and prawn crackers. The children talked about how the food tasted and which was their favourite. The prawn crackers the firm favourite from both classes and the children enjoyed finishing them off at snack time.

    The final activity was to perform a dragon dance around the playground with the grown- ups using drums and triangles to create a beat for us to dance to. The children had lots of fun especially when it was the grown-ups turn to have a go!

    There was a great turn out from parents and the children in both Oak and Willow class really enjoyed the morning and we hope you all did too!

    Thank you for coming to celebrate with us and we look forward to sharing our work with you all again soon.
