We have been learning about minibeasts, finding out their different names, looking closely at them, to see how many legs they have (if any) and if they have wings. We made salt dough minibeats, let them dry, painted and then decorated them.
We learned a lot about what firefighters do when we had our Virtual Fire Station tour this afternoon (postponed from before Easter). We were all amazed at how much kit is stored in a fire engine! The children listened brilliantly and learned some top tips to stay safe, including not playing with matches and checking smoke alarms every week. They also learnt a saying to remind them what to do if there is a fire at their house -
'Get out, stay out, call the Fire Service out'
Many thanks to the firefighters from Dunstable Fire Station.
The children really enjoyed our Hungry caterpillar smoothies made using our favourite fruits, bananas, strawberries and blueberries with apple juice. They went down really well!
Apple Class you have had some great ideas for your hard boiled egg character designs. Here are the ones which we have received so far. Well done!
Well done Apple Class creating your Easter Egg designs. Here are the ones which have been emailed in so far!
It was a real team effort to create this wonderful display celebrating some of our local superheroes. We are so proud of the contributions all the children made to it!
Just some of the activities the children have been doing since their return to school. A walk around our beautiful school grounds, water play, potato planting and parachute fun!
Yet again, lots of amazing learning this week. We know you are all superheroes, but here are some photos of the local superheroes you have learnt about, as well as brilliant writing, exercise ideas and cooking!
We hope you all enjoyed the half term break and flipped, rolled and ate loads of pancakes last Tuesday! We have been busy making school even more attractive and exciting for you and we hope to see you all back soon!

Another busy week for us all! Take a look at what you have all been up to at home, it might give you some ideas to try yourself!

More amazing home learning this week, and to top that, we came second in the school walking challenge set by Mrs Farlam! An amazing team effort meant that we were only 8km away from being overall winners. Thank you to you and your grown ups for your enthusiasm and energy! We are so proud of all your hard work!
Please find below the details of home learning tasks for this week. We hope you have fun doing them!

We had a surprise visitor in school today! Thank you to the mummy who let us know this magnificent Emperor Penguin was in the area, a long way from his real home!
Happy Monday everyone!
Please find attached below details of the home learning tasks for this week and two sheets you may want to print out.
Thank you so much for all the photographs you have been sending in. We love to see what you have been learning at home! Here are just some of the amazing things you have been doing!
We would loved to have wished you all a Happy New Year in person, but sadly, this is not to be. Our wish is that you all stay safe and well, and that it won't be too long until we are back together again. School is just not the same without you all!
As Mrs Farlam has explained, we will be providing a range of home learning tasks as a guide for how you can support your child. Our first home learning tasks sheet is attached below.
The first books we are sending home are wordless books. In class, we are encouraging the children to use the illustrations as visual cues to give meaning to the story and develop their comprehension and recall skills ahead of the challenges of decoding words. Please see the attached document for information on how you, as parents and carers, can support your child to develop these skills.
Here are some of the things that we like to do outside.
Next week (w.b. 28.9.20), we will be having an apple themed week, which will include preparing and eating an apple crumble. We will be using flour, oats, sugar and dairy free margarine as well as apples from our school orchard. Please advise us of any relevant allergies.
Please find below our first Learning Bulletin of the year. It has details of some of the learning your child has been doing this week, together with some ideas for activities you can try at home!
We have had a lovely first few days in Apple Class. Here are some of the things we did indoors.
