You were noticed Connor

Today Kane noticed Connor working hard and using good thinking during the game of chaos. He said that you were running very fast!

Such fun with our big buddies

Every week we have wonderful activities with our big buddies. Today we had to dodge balls while crossing over the crash pads. We quickly learnt some clever strategies.

You are so clever Aidan!

Look what Aidan has been making! He showed us the portcullis on the side and the special door on the front. We think you are an expert castle builder Aidan.

Will it reach the roof?

Our Sam Sunflower is now 122 cm tall. Connor was wondering why the leaves at the bottom are dying while the leaves at the top look very healthy. Can you help us?

Assembly item

As part of our mixing and melting science unit we have been mixing paints. We shared our work in assembly and even invited some of our big buddies to come and try to paint our made up colours. We finished our item by singing Jamaican Farewell and Linstead Market.

Noticed by their big buddies

These children were all noticed by their big buddies because of the great effort they showed during the team games. Well done! Which game did you like best?

Pirate the Cat

Pirate the cat has been writing to us again. Do you know that we are the only class in the whole wide world that has a cat that sends comments to our blog? I think he lives near Connor and Laurie. Think of a question you have always wanted to ask a cat. My question Pirate is why do cats hate water?
