 Broomhill Farm Visit

Today Reception children enjoyed a visit to Broomhill farm as part of our topic on animals. On arrival the children met some animals and even fed them.

We then walked down to the forest and explored a different habitat. The children looked for mini-beasts and made an animal shelter. There was lots of time to play explore the forest before toasting marshmallows around the camp fire. What a beautiful day!

Librarian Visit

We had a visit form the librarian on Monday who shred stories and rhymes with the reception children

Owl Visit

The children have really enjoyed our recent topic about Owls. To enhance our learning we invited in some very special visitors.  The children sat with amazement as Gary introduced us to Willow the Barn Owl, Esta the Eagle Owl, Molly the Great Grey Owl and Buzz the Hawk. We heard some interesting facts about Owls and the children asked some great questions. We listened carefully as Buzz flew over our heads, before we had the opportunity to hold the Barn Owl. We looked carefully as we held the owl and then drew a picture of what we saw. The children enjoyed the visit and this was clear to see and hear through their squeals of delight and huge smiles.

Relax Kids

The children in reception have enjoyed a visit from relax kids. The story string hugely successful .



Mrs Swinglehurst, the lollipop lady, has been teaching us how to cross the road safely.

First we looked for a safe place to cross. Then we looked left and right. We used our ears to listen out for cars. Finally we walked across the road, looking at all times.

Thank you Mrs Swinglehurst for teaching us how to be safe crossing the road.

Remember we only cross the road with an adult!

Atelier Holme Head Trip

Wow, what a great learning experience for the children today. We have baked our own bread with canes over a firepit, built dens, explored the mud kitchen, had fun on the rope swing, climbed up the indoor trees, explored the indoor learning area and created our own masterpieces with clay and paint. The children’s behaviour was fantastic, well done everyone!!
