Y2 were so excited to have the newly born chicks visit us in the classroom. Mrs Bonner, with her Y5 class, have been finding out about how chicks hatch and their life cycle. They had 12 eggs in an incubator of which 9 hatched and are surviving well and thriving.
Year 5 said we could choose a name for one of the chicks. We all shared our ideas and then voted for the name we liked the best. The winning one was....'Roxy'!
View photos from the Key Stage 1 Nativity. It was fabulous!
We loved learning the songs and retelling the Christmas Story.
Today we acted out the story of the miracle of the Loaves and Fishes. It was great fun and very meaningful.
On Tuesday March 14th Y2 - as part of their instruction writing made banana muffins. They had great fun and really enjoyed baking and of course eating the muffins!
