A Special visitor
As you may know the children voted for a Vets role play this half term and many of you have provided us with bandages and other consumables to help support their role play.
We have been fortunate that some parents work in this profession and have provided us with many items that we could not have possibly sourced.
Last week we were lucky enough to have one Mum talk to the children about her work as a vet.
We learnt about X-rays and broken bones, looked and skulls.
The children asked questions about animals. It was interesting to learn that sometimes vets have to treat zoo animals like tigers and snakes.
A big thank you to her and our other parents for your support.
Phonics Evening 21st November
Thank you to the Parent that managed to attend our phonics evening.
The staff looked at the different phases of the Letters and Sounds scheme and some ways to support your child.
Information was displayed and staff were on hand to talk these ideas through with parents.
As promised you will find below the presentation and website links to help support phonics.

All the classes have produced harvest themed work to either show or perform for our assembly.

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.

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!!!

Today saw the second part of our sports events.
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 big thank you to the Year 6 Amethyst Team Captains who supported some of our younger children.
