The children have been very excited to return to school and be back playing with friends. Many have enjoyed lovely holidays at home and abroad and have told the class about their fun adventures. Our class bears have travelled far and wide and we have talked together about the weather and activities they enjoyed whilst away.

The children were very excited to discover that Mrs Blacker’s class potatoes have begun to grow! However Mrs Lock suspects that under the earth her class potatoes are gathering strength ready to surge up and out of the soil and overtake them in height at least!!!

ICT was a great success as we progressed from instructing our human robots on a grid to using Bee-Bots. The Bee-Bots were programmed with a number of forward and backward moves, left and right turns, then pressed go. An adventure every time!

Please can you ensure that your child has red waterproof trousers, coats and their wellies in school, as we are now playing on the field again each day – and we may also need them for our Wakehurst trip next Wednesday!
