Week Ending 22nd February 2008

We have all returned refreshed from our half term break. Our builders, of course, have been steadily working on, with only a few weeks until completion of our Nursery. A hand painting session for past and present pupils to come and "make their mark" will be held on Saturday 1st March: 9 - 12 o'clock. These prints will be displayed on a wall, in our wonderful new Nursery.

Our focus this week has been geography. Hedgehogs and Squirrels have turned themselves into penguin friends of "Cuddly Dudley", in Antarctica. Rabbits have been investigating "Shops and Shopping" - wonder if they got to Harrods! Badgers studied the town of Betws-y-Coed. Perhaps they have also added Welsh to their language sessions...

A new set of Friday afternoon "Choices" has started. The children and staff thoroughly enjoy these weekly sessions, when Reception to Year Four children work collaboratively, on a range of topics. There was also much excitement this week when we used our new laptops for the first time!

A visiting scientist came on Friday morning, and presented a wonderful selection of experiments. We now know what happens when candle wax, sugar and air mix... Do you?
