Light a candle for me, light a candle for you

Our last day of term was a celebration as you'd expect. We were so fortunate to have Chip join us from Snail Tales for a participatory story telling session on the theme of Christmas in other cultures. With simple props in a small suitcase, huge enthusiasm and a lot of energy - the children were transported to the desert, to Russia and to Mexico. This was an opportunity to invite old friends and to make a new one.

Spot the difference

There has been a flurry of interest in learning multiplication facts over the last few weeks. Some of the children have created their own games to test each other in a fun way. We also have a piece of work that starts in the Children's House with colour and shape and continues on into elementary with the maths bead bars - it's called the deconomial square. It is a long piece of concentrated work - creating the deconomial square (all the times tables from 1x to 10x) vertically and then horizontally. Part 1 culminates in identifying the squares of the numbers - important for a follow on piece of work next term. Spot the difference!


This has been one of several long pieces of work this half term. A few of the children have been learning finger knitting or learning to plait to create a decoration for their rooms with their initials. The more experienced children have been helping the younger ones with their plaits to help ensure all is finished up before we break for the holidays.

Island in the sun

We have been working on a big geography project over a number of weeks to create an island. The children decided where it would be in the world, therefore deciding its climate, what produce it could grow and what animals would be native there. They decided a name for the island, the name and the location of its capital city and re-created its topography in 3D. A lot of inginuity and research went into this work and the children are very proud of their finished result.


The day of our trip to the museum finally arrived after a few lessons in planning (!) and the two girls who organised the visit proudly escorted us on our way. We worked on a timeline of costume and some had a conundrum to solve about where to put themselves. After a chance to act as curators, experience the stocks (with foam vegetables) and try on some costumes of the tudor period, our thanks go to Suzie, Louisa and Steph for such an informative and fun session.
