Our Reception children began their phased return to school last week. We’re so happy to see them again!
Following on from World Environment Day on Friday, yesterday was the United Nation’s dedicated World Oceans Day. Since 2009, 8th June has been a day for celebrating the role of the oceans in our everyday life and inspiring action to protect the ocean and sustainably use marine resources.
The topic for Reception this term is ‘Under the Sea’ and so Mrs Scott made sure that we celebrated World Oceans Day by doing something extra exciting! Ruby’s dad, who did a degree in Marine Biology, made us a PowerPoint quiz and Ruby brought in a real mako shark jaw! Mia and Nellie brought in sea shells.
Nursery and Reception want to say a big THANK YOU to all the key workers! We’ve been learning about people who help us and the children made some lovely cards to show their gratitude.
Last week, we explored the job of a firefighter. In previous years, firefighters have come to visit us at school in a real fire engine! Even though that couldn’t take place this year, we feel really lucky to be able to access lots of virtual content online. We watched a virtual tour of a Nottinghamshire fire station followed by a fun firefighter painting activity. We love learning through play!
Are you starting to feeling stiff from slouching over a computer all day?
Don’t forget to take regular intervals from your screen. Every half hour or so, stand up, stretch and move.
WE DID IT! We raised over £100 for Comic Relief and Children in Need’s The Big Night In yesterday. As promised, Mrs Howlett completed her 100 sit ups. 1 for every £1 we raised towards our target. Thank you to everyone who donated and of course to Mrs Howlett for her efforts.
