The magic of me!

We have had a great time exploring the world using our senses. We have been on visits to our local area; Gaywood. We have found out about King’s Lynn and special buildings found here. We have discovered how the natural world changes through the seasons and hav e loved learning both indoors and outdoors at the allotment and field. More photographs of our learning can be found by logging in to your tapestry accounts.

Lily-Rose Webster: dance superstar!

On 11th March 2017 Lily-Rose performed at Disney Land as part of a major dance competition. She had been training extremely hard for this and we were all thinking of her.

Her hard work paid off and after performing on stage to hundreds of people, she came 1st in one of her competitions and 2nd in another! AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT LILY-ROSE! We are ALL really proud of you!  











Magic Maths Day 3rd March





















World Book Day: Mrs Hodson was ‘Mr Tickle’ and Mrs Chadderton was ‘The Tiger Who came to tea’. We had a great scavenger book hunt and searched the school to find examples of different things to read. Karolis found his book character in a story in the library ‘We look the same!’, he said.IMG_1309 IMG_1310 IMG_1320 IMG_1321 IMG_1322 IMG_1323 IMG_1326 IMG_1328 IMG_1333 IMG_1339IMG_1337 IMG_1354 IMG_1361 IMG_1370.
