Many thanks to all who sent contributions for our Harvest Festival today.
All the classes have produced harvest themed work to either show or perform for our assembly.
Ruby Class have been busy making different themed prints using conkers, fir cones and a huge variety of vegetables provided by parents.
Ruby, Topaz and Opal (Rec) have been learning the story of “The Little Red Hen” and the song Dingle Dangle Scarecrow. Reception have been making hedgehog pictures from leaves.
Opal & Topaz Year 1 have been collecting leaves to fill bottles and designing posters.
Amber class recited a poem titled “Autumn Leaves”. Jade Class a poem called “Harvest” and Pearl class found a poem called “The Harvest Poem” which used a play on words.
The children all performed and sang several songs.
Well done to both children and staff.
Ruby class recent activities
Ruby class have enjoyed their first trips to the dell.
Last week we went on a bear hunt and read the story as we made our way around the dell.
Today we collected lots of leaves to make some tree pictures for the classroom wall.
On Wednesday we had a visit from Mrs Battershill with her messy mashup.
We all had lots of fun and got very messy!!!

This was the running track events which included a relay, hurdles, and an egg and spoon race.
The weather was just about right this morning and the children did a grand job of completing their races.

A Snail and the Whale
On Friday 8th June all of the Early Years classes went on a trip to Radlett Theatre to see “A Snail on a Whale” This was based on the book that had been read in class as part of our Ignite.
The children were excited by their trip on a coach and we very excited to see the performance.
All the children were engaged and willing participant of the production. at one point we were treated to a spray of water!
Many thanks to Foms who enabled the children to have a treat while watching.
We managed to take a few candid photos from the trip.
After an exciting trip to the dell this morning, Year 6 returned to the nursery class to read their stories to the children.
It was a pleasure to watch them share their own work and the story books with the younger children.
Well done to you all.
We’re going on a Bear hunt!
This morning Ruby class went to the dell to experience retelling the story with a twist.
Mrs Lawes had prepared some tyres filled with grass, water, mud, cottonwool and sticks to represent the actions in the book.
As you can see they walked through the tyres bare footed with help from Amethyst class, who encouraged Ruby class to carry on.
Then came the alternative Bear Hunt. Miss Smith was the first to try! We had baked beans, shaving foam, porridge mixed with water, hay and finished with cold cooked spaghetti.
Some of Ruby class were keen, some had a go with help from Year 6.
Then we let the Year 6 try it for themselves.
Many thanks to Amethyst class for their encouragement and help with the younger children.
