Holiday update 


I called into school to pick up some books but I daren't go into our classroom because of the creatures blocking the doorway!



Where on earth did these animals come from? I think I need to speak to Mr Grist to ask him to check the grounds carefully!

Remember I would LOVE it if you wrote about the new events!

Strange events have been happening this week! We have been investigating!


Our classroom was invaded by Gingerbread creatures and we wrote about it! We found crumbs all over the room.



There was an earthquake in Mr Gilmore's office. We went to check he was ok!


A dinosaur appeared and was stomping down the path near our classroom!

What will happen over the holidays?

We have had a fantastic day studying how the season is changing. We have done some amazing autumn art and poetry and even made a blackberry and apple crumble. We loved finding all the different seeds and berries outside. Can you find any signs that autumn is on it's way this weekend?

We've had a busy afternoon of maths, spellings, computers, art and exploring our woodland.  

Look at our tree. We're going to observe the seasonal changes it goes through over the year. We saw so many signs of autumn today.
