We have been learning about animals using non- fiction books and chrome books to find out some exciting facts about amphibians, birds and fish. We have worked in the groups sharing our ideas, taking turns and supporting each other.
In Nursery we have loved making our own bird feeders using pinecones, lard and seeds.
We enjoyed dancing and singing at our silent disco.
Spring Festival of colour. The children enjoyed throwing paint at Mrs Ponsonby as part of our learning about the festival.

We also celebrated in school by getting very colourful……and messy!!!
We celebrated our first week all back together with a silent disco – we had a great time.

The children have loved being back where they belong 🥰 They have settled brilliantly and we are so proud of them! Check out our silent disco…
