Oak and Rowan Class enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on 1st March. Look at some of our wonderful costumes! Can you guess which character we are and which book we feature in?

We visited the Blue Planet Aquarium on the 15th February as part of our 'Under the Sea' topic. We had lots of fun! We watched divers feeding the sting rays and fish, saw sharks when we walked through the glass tunnel and enjoyed playing pirates on the giant pirate ship playground! We even managed to find Norman (goldfish from our story called Not Norman)!
Oak and Rowan Class enjoyed the Polar Explorer Day on Tuesday 6th February. We enjoyed learning about different animals that live in the polar regions and exploring clothes that people would wear to keep warm. Spencer looked very warm in his polar explorer coat outside in the snow!
"The polar bear has a thick fur coat so he keeps out the cold," said Emmie-Mae.
"The polar bears live on the ice and hunt for food," said Elijah.
"Penguins live in the water and the land, they get fish out of the water," said Olly.

Oak and Rowan Class enjoyed helping to raise money for the NSPCC during a special Number Day on Friday 2nd February. The children dressed up in number clothes and we realised that we wear numbers all the time; finding them on our labels and in our shoes! We enjoyed many activities including building a Numicon number school, hand painting and exploring counting in the forest using a tens frame. Come and see our display

Fun in the Forest
The children really enjoy our afternoons in the forest. Have a look for yourself! The children enjoy looking for minibeasts, discussing how the leaves are changing with the seasons, building dens, climbing, getting muddy and having fun with friends.

We had a visit

from Santa!
