As we walked outside, we were greeted by 3 friendly police officers and a police car with flashing lights 🚓 we all had lots of opportunities to try on a range of police uniform and accessories. We even got to sit in the police car and listen to the very loud siren 🚨

10.02.2022 As part of Children’s Mental Health week we have been looking at how much we have grown. We talked about how we have grown physically and emotionally! To support this discussion, we read ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and looked at how the caterpillar grew and the changes it went through. We then compared how we have changed by discussing some of the things we couldn’t do as babies but we can now. All of the children had great ideas! They suggested how they can now ride bikes, get into their own bed and use the toilet independently! We also thought about how we have developed emotionally because we no longer cry for milk or when we go to the toilet!
27.01.2022 Last week, Class 1's focus story was 'Three Little Pigs'. The children worked together to build a straw house in our outdoor area.

When we came back to school the next day, we spotted that something had indeed visited our straw house!
