The Mayor visits 8th May
On the 8th May we were honoured to have the Mayor visit the school. He spent time looking around our school and enjoyed talking to some of the staff and children.
Children from all year groups were chosen to have their picture taken with him and his wife.
Our New Playground
After many months of planning the early years playground has had a makeover. Thanks to FOMS and Lottery Funding for helping to fund this project. Many of the children have been watching the diggers and machinery and have used this learning in their role play. The children have at last been able to use the trail and new climbing frame. Hopefully when the weather improves we will be able to make the sandpit available too.
Today, we have been looking at different types of angles in our playground. We saw right angles, obtuse angles and acute angles. A right angle is when 2 straight lines meet at 90°. We used the corner of our books to check if an angle was a right angle or not. An acute is less than 90°. An obtuse angle is more than 90° but less 180°.
Can you spot the different angles in our pictures? We found lots!

Spring Term Topics and Learning
This term Early Years have been busy with our topics.
We started the term off with People that help us. We had many visitors, Police, Nurses, Physiotherapists and Mr Armoogum came to talk to the children about his job.
Many of our visitors were parents so I would like to thank them all for their time.
We also took a walk down to the Markyate Fire Station to see how it all works.
The topic for Spring 2 has been Take one book, we have chosen different books to work through with the children. Activities have been varied with each story. Books included What the Ladybird Heard, Georges Marvellous Medicine, Rhinos Don’t like Pancakes, The Way Back Home and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
The whole of Early Years then had a trip to Radlett Theatre to watch the show We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. The children all enjoyed the show and talked about their favourite thing about it. It seems getting wet was top of the list!
