The Day we met the Sheep!

Our trip to the Steam Museum was amazing! We experienced an air-raid (thank you Mr Goodchild and Mr Collins for keeping us safe!), being evacuated and followed the life of a family throughout the war years. Here are just some of the photos we took.

World Book Day - Nightingale class. What amazing outfits you created and wore, well done!

What are we learning in Term Four?

As part of our project, Bombs, Battles and the Blitz, we have been lucky enough to meet and talk to people who experienced WWII for themselves.

We waited and watched our eggs as they incubated - until they hatched into gorgeous fluffy chicks. Thank you Y1, for taking such good care of them!

Why is learning our multiplication tables so important?

Jimi, Elijah, Zach and Antonio took some beautiful photos on a bright and frosty morning.
