Father’s Friday

What a brilliant day we have had in school today! So many dads and special people in the children’s lives have given up some or even all of their day to spend time with us in school. Everyone took a full part and became fully immersed in the learning, fun and excitement that took place and the school was buzzing from the beginning of assembly this morning to the end of school as I wandered around the playground. Thank you to all those who came and made our day, it was great to see you and watch you learn, play and have fun. Here are some snapshots of this year’s Father’s Friday, the children telling us what they liked about today in their own words and Thistle class’ composition of the Hungry Caterpillar, conducted by dads! Enjoy…

Maths Day

Today we all had a fantastic afternoon with maths. From board games to basketball shooting and counting to treasure hunts to being Times Tables Rock Stars, the school was alive with fun, excitement and tremendous learning. Well done everyone, you all worked really hard.

Here are some children describing their maths day in their own words:

Weekend excitement!

It’s not often I blog about my own weekend actitivies, but being a Red Arrows fan all my life, I managed to find out that they were doing a fly past in my mum and dad’s village this afternoon. Armed with a video camera I thought I’d record it – just in case anyone has never seen them. Widely regarded as the world’s best aerobatic display team they are always exciting to watch, particularly from our own back garden! The voice you can hear, by the way, is my dad saying ‘what a place to be!’ and it was. Thanks lads. Saturday made…

Fantastic International Learning

I had the pleasure of being in class all day today and this afternoon, with Lotus class, we made some lovely new friends in a school in France at the International School of Toulouse. Through the magic of the web, the children were able to talk about their school and local environment and even practice some of their French, which the children in Toulouse thought was really good! Well done everyone, a really fun afternoon and some great learning taking place.

We can’t wait to do it again and my thanks to Miss Ash, the Y2 class teacher for linking up with us.
