Far Away Monday to China

We had the most brilliant first day back after the half term holiday this week by heading off on the plane to China! We spent our day learning the language, creating flags, dragon masks and even our own Chinese Pagoda's out of construction. A particular favourite part of the day was trying some of the local food - prawn crackers and noodles yum yum! Lot's of Cygnets were asking for more! We learnt all about Chinese New Year and the story of the Chinese Zodiac signs. Have a look at our fun filled day...

We then had another treat in school as we had our very own Chinese Dragon Dance Workshop where we got to actually be the dragon! It was so exciting and we had lots of fun!

Cinderella Ball

Today we had our own Cinderella Ball. We got ready into our special clothes so that we were turned into Princes and Princesses! 

Forest School

We had such a lovely day at Forest School yesterday. Thank you Miss Birmingham for always leading such a wonderful day for us all! We moulded our own clay faces using natural resources found in our Forest School area and had the best time building on all of our previous skills! Take a look at what we've been up to...


In PE this half term we have been learning all about the 5 basic shapes. These are: Straight, Star, Tuck, Pike and Straddle. We have practised them carefully by holding our bodies strong and still just like gymnasts do. We are experts now and can't wait to teach everyone at home!

Ice Sculptures

We have had great fun in the past few days taking advantage of the very cold weather! We looked at how water turns to ice when it freezes and then investigated what happens when the sun shines. Have a look at our Ice Sculptures that we made using natural materials from our outside area.
