3D Paper Sculpture

We enjoyed looking for animals at Forest School and thought that we would use paper sculpture to create 3D insects and bugs in the classroom. We thought very carefully about the shapes, colours and details that we needed for the features.....

Sports Day!

We had a fantastic time at our school sports day today! The children put their best efforts in and were AMAZING! We were so proud of how well they took part and how wonderfully they supported and cheered each other on! We were so lucky to have parents there to cheer us on too!

Jubilee Celebrations!

Well what a great week we have had to end this half term!

We have been learning all about the Queen and her 70 year reign on the throne! We have been very busy decorating the classroom at the same time as learning lots of new things. To end this great week we had our own whole school street party with food, dancing and singing! Have a look at some of the things we have been up to...

Forest School Day

We had another great day in the forest yesterday! This time we began our learning by talking about the features of some insects that live in the forest. We went and did some bug hunting and then some of us decided to do some drawings of the bugs that we found. We all liked looking at the giant snail that one of the children found!

We had lots of lovely other activities that the we chose to do too! The mud kitchen was very popular, and what a mess we made cooking up some delightful feasts!! You might have noticed our muddy clothes at home time! But what fun we had!

Some of us made dens which was very helpful for when the rain came, and some of us enjoyed playing the rope swinging game which reminds me of when I was little and we danced around the Maypole!!

Have a look at our photo's to see what fun we had...

Petr Visits Portway!

We have had an amazing day today. We met the author/illustrator Petr Horacek! He told us all about his job and read us some of his stories. We loved hearing all about Petr's Granny and all the animals she has!! Petr made us laugh a lot!

In the afternoon we had a workshop with Petr where we had to be illustrators. We made a giant picture between all of us. Have a look at the photos to see our exciting busy day!

New Life at Portway

After our very successful egg hatching, we now have 5 baby Runner Ducks...... Bob, Beth, Betty, Bart and Benjamin. They have been exploring our outside enclosure for the first time today and enjoying the sunshine!! 

We also have caterpillars and will be watching carefully as they change and grow. Do you know what will happen next in their life cycle?

Gosling Class go to the Farm!

We have had the best day ever today! We got to go to Longdown Activity Farm to be farmers for the day! Farmer Luke took us around the farm. We worked very hard and had a very busy schedule of farmer jobs to complete. First we fed the kids their milk, then we collected the eggs from the chickens and took them around to the shop to be sold. After that we held some chicks and stroked some guinea pigs. We saw pigs, calfs, cows and horses! A big treat came next with a tractor ride that we all enjoyed! It was very very very bumpy!! We still had not quite finished for the day as we had to feed the goats their food too! We each had a plate to hold out to them.

After all of our jobs were done we were allowed to have our lunch! We were very hungry! Then it was time to get on the coach to return to school... we had some very sleepy children by the end of the day!

Thankyou to Farmer Luke and Longdown Farm! We had the best time EVER!
