Longdown Activity Farm Tuesday 26th March
What an amazing trip. All the children were able to hold baby chicks and one day old guinea pigs. They fed the pigs and even bottle fed milk to the 'kids'!
PC Woods puts us under arrest!
Local Police Officer PC Woods came to meet the children in Year R. They all got to experience what life is like in the front AND back of the van! They all got some hands on experience of his special equipment and learnt that Police Officers are very friendly people indeed.

Can you guess who?!

Thank you for everyone who made it to our first Learning in Action this September. You can find all the booklets from the presentation here on our pages.
Getting Ready to Write
The children are practising how to hold their pencil correctly. We describe it as:
'Fred the frog, sits on the log.'
Fred is our Frog who helps us learn in phonics lessons. This phrase describes the frog legs which pinch (pincer) the pencil and the log is the middle finger which the pencil balances on. Try using this little reminder to help them at home too.
Try this little trick at home to help with pencil grip. Place a pom pom in your child's hand and get them to grip it with their two fingers - whilst holding their pencil!
