A Special Visitor

On Tuesday we had a surprise visitor who came to see us. It was a policeman! We were so excited and we had lots of questions to ask him about what he does and how he helps people in different ways. He brought his police car and we were allowed to have a look inside...

Busy Bee Beebots

We have been using beebots and pretending that they were bees in Mr McGregor's garden. We know how to give them instructions to move around using positional language eg forwards, backwards, left and right. We linked the instructions together and planned journeys for...

Big Ball Skills

We have been practising how to control a large ball in different ways. We used round balls and rugby balls which were much more tricky to bounce! We are getting really good at throwing balls to a target and also to a partner. We have also learnt how to stand to get...

Colour in the Snow

When the snow came we couldn't wait to get outside and have some fun! We had been exploring colours and colour mixing in the classroom so we decided to see what we could discover outside. We had a great time making new colours and we even invented rainbow snowballs!...

Hot Seating

As part of our work on Edward Hopper we have been using a famous painting by him called Nighthawks to inspire some drama! We had to assume one of the characters in the picture and give them a back story and a reason to be in the painting. The rest of the group then...

Keeping Safe Online

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things.

But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault. TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to us at CEOP. Click the logo above to do this.

If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police. They will make sure you are safe.
