A Small School with a Big Heart, guiding our children to becoming kind and courageous citizens.
Monday 20th September
This afternoon in Forest school we learnt lots of new things including how to safely use a bow saw! This was under the supervision of Mrs Finn and over the next few weeks everyone will get an opportunity to have a go. We were all so impressed by the how carefully they listened to the instructions. They were also given a challenge to try to balance on different things in the woods and it was wonderful to see them creating an obstacle course. They showed such determination not to fall off. Well done, Deer Class!

We had a great time in Deer Class experimenting with sentence starters this week. The challenge was not to open with the word 'the'.
What do you think of these sentences?
'Slowly, the waves rolled up to the shore.'
'Gently, the breeze blew through the palm trees.'

The children enjoyed their first Forest school lesson of the year today. We were lucky the weather was warm and we managed to avoid any rain. They had fun hunting bugs and there was great excitement when a cheeky green grasshopper was bouncing around our feet! It even crawled over someone's face! We even managed to get in some spelling practise using this week's spelling rule - we found lots of gnarled wood and knocked on some wooden stools. The class really enjoyed the afternoon and are already looking forward to next week's session.

What a super first two days. The children have settled so well and are getting used to the new routine in school. They have enjoyed delicious new lunches and even had a picnic lunch outside today. In class we have been writing about our holidays and beginning place value in Maths. This afternoon they did some quiet reading and painted their initials, ready to display on the wall. It has been a sunny, happy start to term!
