Week Ending 10th January 2014

Happy New Year to all!

The children have been busy making New Year's Resolutions, as we hope that 2014 will be the best year ever!  They have resolved that this year:

  • there will be nobody on the behaviour chart
  • they will try not to argue
  • they will always listen when someone is talking to them
  • they will look after equipment
  • they will not be late for School
  • they will always have everything they need in School (eg PE kit)

Our topic for this term (appropriately enough maybe) is "Water, Water, Everywhere."  All classes have started working on the topic, and children in the Main School are looking forward to trips out and about, linked to that theme.

Hamsters have been enjoying exploring the topic of water in a variety of fun ways:

During the holiday, the Staff Room has been refurbished, and looks very smart and modern. Some of the classroom doors have been painted in bright, zingy colours, that greatly appeal to the younger children.

This term our "Choices" begin next week. As usual, there is a wide range of subjects, eg "Jobs People Do", Science, Music, Textiles, Cookery, Storysacks, Drama, Crafts, Golf, Newsletter... doesn't it soumd exciting?!
