We carefully followed the instructions we were given and are very proud of our results.

You can come and see them at our gallery on February 27th.

A Burglary!

January 21st, 2019

The children in Lapwings are very worried to learn the news that  portraits of the queen have been stolen! 

After discussing what we should do next, the children decided that they would come to the rescue and replace the portraits themselves!

This will mean lots of hard work learning all about portraits and how to draw them. 

We will keep you up to date with our progress .

Merry Christmas!

December 21st, 2018

We have had a fabulous couple of days in Lapwings enjoying our Christmas celebrations. We enjoyed taking part in Christmas activities in our class and the Swallows and Kestrels yesterday. We had a delicious Christmas dinner and had a visit from Father Christmas! He brought us some brilliant gifts for our classroom and we have loved playing with them today!

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and look forward to welcoming you all again in 2019!

Project outcome

December 7th, 2018

Thank you so much to everyone that took the time to come and share their children’s learning today. The children were so proud to be able to show off their maps, writing, sketches, Victorian day photos and of course their giant hall map! 

Thanks too for finding the time to create the fabulous models of your homes. We were super impressed and it created a great opportunity for discussion about our area. We are delighted with your feedback and it’s wonderful to hear how many children have taken more interest in the world around them and have been sharing their learning at home with you. We look forward to more Jolly Postman focus and Christmas celebrations in the next couple of weeks!

Victorian Day

November 15th, 2018

What an amazing day! We used chalk and slate for observational drawings, the girls did some sewing whilst the boys learned to recite ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. We said ‘God save the Queen’ looking at Queen Victoria’s portrait. We practiced handwriting and did maths using the abacus. The Vicar came to pray with us and we did drill (Victorian PE). We read from the Bible and played a Victorian game. The children were very nervous when Mrs Daniel appeared to inspect their hands, lots were a disgrace! Most lessons were in silence and we were amazed at how well and seriously the children took part. We really loved the experience and the children seemed relieved to get back smiling happy teachers today….we were very strict! Please talk to the children about the differences between then and now and how things have changed at home since that period too.

Copythorne Garage

November 9th, 2018

Our garage experts loved their visit yesterday. They saw the old oil come out of a car that needed it changing and the new oil going in. They experienced lots of tools and used some on a car wheel. They pressed buttons to lift the ramp and car up high and even went on the ramp as it was raised! They came back sharing lots of new knowledge and information they had gathered!

The last visit of the week was to the Alpacas. We learnt about what they eat, what their fur feels like and the fences that are used to keep the Alapacas safe and protect the chickens. The children would love to tell you more about their visit so do come and ask!
