Parents and Grandparents have put a huge effort into helping the children learn about London 
from the fantastic Easter projects to the London Modelling Day just before half-term. 
The children have been really enthused and motivated. A big THANKYOU!

 We were very lucky to have Ben from Kesgrave Tennis Club coming to introduce us to the 
basic skills of tennis. We had a lot of fun trying to control the racquets and balls!

We have researched all about London and have been creating our own versions of our favourite London Landmarks ...

 Volunteers from the local church visit regularly to tell us stories from the bible by reading and acting them out. We are grateful to them for giving up their time to help us learn about Christianity.

 In PE we have been practising various skills such as throwing and catching, using bats and balls, hurdling and how to work together effectively.

 To end the term we were lucky enough to have the story of 'Thumbelina' told by the Norwich Puppet Theatre. As well as being a special treat, it introduced us to a traditional way of telling stories that not all of us have experienced. 'Badger' was especially lucky to meet one of the characters! 
A big THANKYOU to the PFA who provided the funding.

 Jo from the Dogs Trust came to read us a story and talk about how to treat dogs respectfully so that we keep safe when interacting with them. We learned how to do the 'X factor' when approached by a dog that makes us nervous (even if it is just meaning to be friendly) and how to ensure we can stroke dogs safely by asking the owners first.

For Easter we made chocolate Easter nests and baskets so that we could carry them home. We thought carefully about the ingredients we would need and learned how to melt the chocolate 
so that we could stir the chocolate and cornflakes together.

 An Easter Trail was a great way to see how well we knew our way around the school grounds. 
'Badger' was up to his tricks again and he hid lots of clues. At the end, after much searching 
(even 'Badger' went missing) we counted all the eggs and shared them fairly between everyone.


Red Nose Day & Keeping Fit and Healthy

 On Red Nose Day we donated money to come to school dressed as superheroes. 
We were still keen to do the 1 kilometre run and wondered how much faster this made us?


  There was still time to do some hanging around though ...
