Our Beach Trip with Our Families 

 

We went to Pakefield beach with our families for our summer trip and share afternoon. The sun shone, ( for most of the day) and we had a wonderful, but busy day! We played rounders, team games and paddled. Everyone displayed the Golden behaviours for learning, especially during the team games and sand castle building competition. Our wonderful parents were with us to enjoy the day! Thank you for your support- great COLLABORATION!

The Naughty Bus 

We have had some fabulous homework this half term . Well one!

This week we have been reading about the journey of the 'Naughty Bus.' He drove through some baked beans!

We observed the changes of bread as it is toasted and then ate beans on toast. Yummy!

We created a narrative of a journey we would make with our own bus if we had one.

 

Most children now have hats at school. Please ensure your child has one in school each day.
