Salt Dough 3D Models - 22nd May 2019
During afternoon lessons over the last couple of weeks, we have been making salt dough models of reptiles: turtles, snakes and chameleons!

Kirklees Light Railway Trip - 1st April 2019
What an amazing trip we had to Kirklees Light Railway! We traveled on a train, observing and listening to everything around us. We even went through a tunnel! We entered the engine shed where we were able to see where the trains are kept overnight and also repaired. In the afternoon, we enjoyed going on the miniature train and waving at our friends as we traveled around the track. As part of our learning journey, we applied our skills as an artist by sketching a train carriage and used tone and shading to add detail.
Easter Craft Day - 21st March 2019
We had a full house for our Easter Crafts last Thursday.
The children and the parents took part in lots of crafts that tested their craft skills to the limits. They made Easter baskets, cards and many more exciting Easter things to take home with them and enjoy.
We run these craft days to build lasting relationships with our fantastic parents. These days show the real connection and link that we have within our local community. The parents can help their child and can also make new friends and talk to teachers about school life.
Children benefit so much with the activities and these days and they love to show their parents what they can do. It is great to have parents coming into school and seeing the impact we create.
We are running these days across the year so keep your eyes peeled open so you can see the next day available!

Oral Hygiene - 20th September 2018
This term our PBL topic is People Who Help Us. As part of our learning, we were very lucky to have a visit from the local dentists. They explained how important it is to brush our teeth and how to do it properly. They also shocked us with the amount of sugar in drinks we have every day! Did you know that there are 10 cubes of sugar in one bottle of milkshake? They also left us a lovely goodie bag with a brand new tooth brush each.
