The Living Rainforest

Year 3

On Wednesday 22nd March 2017, Year Three went on a fantastic trip to the Living Rainforest. The children enjoyed a brilliant tour all about amazing adaptations in tropical rainforests. This included poisonous frogs, snakes and loud toucans! We also got to see a sloth (even though she was asleep in a tree!). The day ended with a trip to the playground outside. A great day, lots of learning and excellent behaviour! Take a look at some of the pictures below!

Planting…

Year 3

Year Three have been exploring plants that can grow in a range of different conditions. Last week, we investigated growing cress in groups using a fair test – changing one factor. Some of us planted in sand, some in the fridge and some without any oxygen (using cling film). Already, we can see some growth! Take a look at our before and after pictures!

Ted’s Adventure with Kate

Year 1

Ted had a lovely weekend at Kate’s house, he was so tired when he came back to school on Monday but Kate has told us that he did behave himself.

On Friday after school, Ted went along to Rainbows with Kate where they had lots of fun. Ted met some of Kate’s friends and also got to do some baking. The fun didn’t stop there though as it was Kate’s brother’s birthday and they went for a delicious meal at Prezzo in Rickmansworth. Kate and Ted ate stretchy mozzarella followed by yummy pesto pasta. Ted was a bit cheeky slurping all of Kate’s drink!

Ted was lucky on Saturday as he got to meet Kate’s Uncle and Auntie, he even got a kiss on the cheek from both of them. Ted thought Uncle Ed was very funny, they kept making funny faces togather.

On Sunday, Ted had a bath in the washing machine, he felt so clean and fresh afterwards and enjoyed a game of Cluedo with Kate and her mummy. The weekend was finished with a bit of tae kwon do at Kate’s club.

They did have fun!

In Year One today we have been thinking about the Holy week. We have been very artistic this morning creating pictures of Jesus arriving in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and this afternoon we’ve been hunting for Easter clues around the playgrounds and decoratinging Easter biscuits with Year Five.

Ted’s Adventure with Oscar

Year 1

 

Ted had another fabulous weekend away staying at Oscar’s house.

The fun began on Friday afternoon at the PTA cinema event. Ted behaved very well while he watched Trolls with Oscar and the rest of the children who attended. I think Ted was even treated to a little snack from Oscar … lucky Ted!

Oscsar’s family had friends staying at their house at the weekend so Ted got to meet lots of new people. Oscsar has told me that Ted was very polite.

On Saturday Oscar took Ted to Rickmansworth library, he helped Oscar to return his books. Ted doesn’t have his own library card so he had to share Oscar’s books with him. I think that with all the reading that Ted does when he visits the Year One children, he’ll soon be a super reader.

Ted got lots of cuddles over the weekend, he enjoyed a lovely lunch with Oscar’s friends; Ruby and Alfee, visited the Dog’s Trust (where he met Oscar’s favourite dog) and got to have a McDonald’s for dinner ….. what a busy weekend!

World Book Day

Year 1

We’d just like to say a great big well done to all of the children in Year One.

Everyone made a fantastic effort to dress up as one of their favourite book characters.

We enjoyed reading to some Year Three children and I’m sure they enjoyed us reading to them too!

Ted’s Adventure with Neev

Year 1

Ted had a very busy weekend with Neev, they got up to allsorts!

Ted was a bit worried on his first night staying at Neev’s house but Neev introduced Ted to her teddy called Pink Bean and they became good friends.
Neev taught Ted how to brush his teeth, he used a big blue toothbrush and Neev used her pink one, they all went to bed with super shiny teeth.

The next day Ted made some more new friends. He met one of Neev’s dolls and a beautiful pink cat that Santa had given her.
Ted got to play with the Lego while he was at Neev’s house, they made a fantastic zoo … it had giraffes, flowers, prickly trees and even a unicorn! They also had fun playing with Neev’s big pink dollshouse, Ted had such fun and was exhausted by Sunday night!
