Week Ending 11th January 2013

Happy New Year!

Welcome to our new Hamsters.

2013 is off to a very exciting start, with work beginning on our two lovely new classrooms.  This will be a very exciting term, and, by Easter, the new rooms should be complete and ready for occupation.  How exciting to be the first children to use the new rooms!!

The whole School topic for the term is "Now and Then."  Badgers have already been on an informative walk around the village, having studied information and photos about our village "then," enabling comparisons with the "now".

Rabbits have been investigating materials used "now" compared to those of "then".  Squirrels have compared the Spain of long ago, with the modern Spain, and especially enjoyed Gaudi's mosaics.  Otters have been learning about the Great Fire of London, and enjoying the humour of "Horrible Histories".

Hedgehogs have been busy helping to clear storage areas, in preparation for the building changes ahead.  Watch this space for updates!
