Happy New Year!
We started 2008 with a visit to Milton Keynes Theatre, to see "Aladdin". The genie had wonderful golden boots, and appeared from a sparkle of silver stars!
This week we have been "Light Scientists". Each class has investigated different aspects of the topic light. The "peep" boxes in Squirrels class were very popular - we based them on the Aladdin theme, and spotted genies and jewels as we peeped through the hole. Badgers had trouble with their work on shadows, as they were"rained off" a couple of times!
On Thursday we ended with our New Year Disco. The children had a wonderful time, participating in dancing and games, followed by a delicious tea.
On Friday we are beginning a new set of "Choices" topics: reading / writing / history investigation / music / drama.
