We had a wonderful time sharing ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. We worked as a team to make a GIANT bear. We also drew and painted pictures of the bear!
Our Community Officer PC Talbot, and Police Community Support Officer Caroline, came to visit Early Years today! They talked about lots of different ways that the police help us. We got to look at their police car, speak on the police radio and some of us even wanted to try on the police uniform!
Reception and Nursery were visited this morning by Margret and Quella. Quella is from the Guide Dog Association. We found out so much about the important job Quella does to make sure that Margret is independent. We even got to stroke Quella and say hello – we loved it!
Wow! Early years blew everyone away with their magnificent performance of Whoops a Daisy Angel. It was hard to believe that the children were only age 3 -5 years old. the show stole the audience hearts!
Early years welcomed their grown ups into school this week to play!
We had a visit from the Dog Trust today, The children learned about how dogs have feelings and how we would approach a dog to keep us safe and not to distress the dog.
Last week the children in our Early Years went on their visit to Scotswood Community Garden. Thank you to the grown ups who came along to help; we couldn’t do it without you! The session was aimed at supporting children’s understanding of the world they live in and seasonal change. During the visit children learnt about how some animals, like hedgehogs, hibernate in the winter. The children worked hard to use Autumn leaves and branches to build a nest for a hedgehog – the main aim was to keep the hedgehog warm. The children had a fabulous time and, as always, demonstrated our school values: respect, resilience, responsibility and engagement.
Parents and Carers joined their children for an afternoon helping bees, butterflies and other insects. Everyone planted wildflowers to help the school grounds for nature, they then made a recycled butterfly feeder, plant pot and hanging basket full of butterfly friendly flowers to take home.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to West Boldon Lodge for working with us.
