On 14th June the reception children went to Barleylands Farm for the day. We learned about how the wheat is grown. We listened to the story of the Little Red Hen and we all made a pizza to bring home. The toppings on the pizza were all grown at Barleylands. We then went to see and feed the farm animals and had a ride around the farm on the trailer tractor. It was a very enjoyable day out and the children were very well behaved.
We are very lucky to have a parent of a child in reception who is teaching some of the children Spanish on a Monday lunch time. At the moment the classes are full but the children are enjoying their learning. Many thanks for this opportunity for the children.
Visitors to the school
As part of our work on People who help us, we have had many visitors to the school to talk to the children. We have had a paramedic, a vet, a policeman, the school cook, a doctor, a nurse and we are still hoping that the fire brigade will be able to visit us. The children loved finding out about these occupations. We also dressed up as people who help us.
Some photos of these visits are below:
For the Hindu festival of Diwali some of us dressed up in Indian clothes. We made a rangoli pattern using coloured sand and made diva lamps out of clay. We enjoy finding out about other cultures.
