Last week of Term 3

What a fabulous fun-filled week we had in the last week of term.

On Tuesday we all tried our best in the Cross Country. Well done to our first three boys - Kelly (R4)  (absent for photo), Quinn (R3) and Rhys (R3) and first three girls - Marinette (R3), Mia (R3) and Isabella (R4). We were very proud of all children who took part, gave their best and supported each other.

On Wednesday we had a go at making our own marble runs. Check out the Explore page (link on right of the page) to see some photos. You will also see photos of R3 and 4 investigating ice for Science on Friday.

On Friday morning we had a special visitor to our Pod. We all listened well and asked questions to find out more about looking after lambs.



On Friday afternoon we visited our buddy classes in Pod 4. Room 3 children read with their big buddies in R16 and did some bee art-work. Room 4 worked with R14 to create some stunning bees for a display for Pod 1. Come into the pod and check them out.

Term 3 Welcome

This term we welcome 17 new pupils to Pod 1. They are based in Room 3 with Andrena (Mondays - Thursdays) and Jen (Fridays).
Our main theme for this term is People Who Help Us. We have set up a Doctor's Surgery in our Imagine Area, as well as a Little Shop, to encourage imaginative role play around this theme. We will also be investigating "How Things Move" in science and exploring measurement in maths.

Here are a few pictures of Room 4 visiting the library on Friday. Our very helpful librarian, Melissa, read the children a story and organised a special visit from Wendy's dog, Princess.
