Week Ending 14th January 2011


Our Hall display is "Tree of Hopes for 2011," so here's hoping that all those wishes for the year come true, around the World. The children were very thoughtful.

Last Friday we were entertained at the pantomome. Dick Whittington made us all laugh, and we enjoyed wearing our 3D glasses, for the underwater sea scene.

This week, our foundation topic has been geography. If any stray bears have been spotted around the village... yes... they have escaped from Squirrels and Otters: "We're Going On A Bear Hunt."

Rabbits have been investigating the Amazon Rainforest, and have a lovely "hands-on" display.

Badgers have been looking at "the view through a window" and seeing how our environment changes over time.

Hedgehogs and Hamsters have been into outer space! The older children in Hedgehogs have learnt all about the moon, and enjoyed making wonderful moon scenes from flour, complete with craters and astronauts.

Hamsters have had fun playing in their "space pod" and making space jackets to wear.

Our new "Choices" begins on Friday, with exciting new topics:

School Council Crafts
Spring Crafts
Feathered Friends
Hearts & Crafts
Media Studies
Drama and Dance
