Superhero Capes

On Tuesday 5th December we had our first parent workshop.  Thank you to all the lovely parents who came to the workshop to help us make our own superhero capes. On Thursday we wore our capes and pretended to be superheroes in the playground. Have a look at us with our fabulous superhero capes!


A Visit from the Police

On Thursday, we had a lovely visit from a police constable and a police officer. They showed us their uniform, radio, baton, handcuffs, torch and a spray. Police Constable Luke Cooper explained what he does in his job. Sometimes he has to arrest people and put them in jail.  He also tries to calm people down if they are angry. Have a look at our picture with the policemen. 


Writing Newspaper Reports

This half term we are learning to write a Newspaper Report and it is a non-ficton text. Can you read the text using the symbols?

Children in Need

On Friday we came to school dressed in our pyjamas to show our support for a wonderful charity 'Children in Need'.

Have a look at us in our colourful pyjamas!



Fire Station Trip

Our topic this half term is 'People who help us'. On Thursday we went to a fire station and we travelled by bus. It was every exciting! We met many fire fighters who showed us a fire engine. We even got to sit in it and pretend to be the boss. We all enjoyed using the hose pipe and spraying water at the cone. The kind fire fighters showed us the tools they use in emergency situations. Have a look at our photos.
