Pre-School Occupation visits

We have started to learn about people who help us and different occupations. This week we are learning about people who help us, Xavi’s Mum and Dad (Claire and Rob) came in dressed in their work uniforms and told the children about their jobs. The children learnt all about what paramedics do and what happens when you go in an ambulance to go to the emergency department to see the doctors and nurses who will help them become better. Claire and Rob also brought in some of their equipment that they carry whilst at work, they let the children have a turn with their pen torches.

If any other parents would like to come in and talk to the children about their jobs please speak to a member of staff.



Morwellham Quay

Excellent trip today for Class 3. We made the journey to the Cornish border and had an amazing time. The class sampled life in the (real) Victorian classroom, made bread with the bakers and tried on Victorian clothing. Finally we stepped aboard the train and even went all the  way into the copper mine – deep underground. It was an amazing experience and even the cold didn’t dent our enthusiasm! Huge thanks to Ms Peter (for arranging ) and Kate (for helping) with this superb experience.    

Winter and Birds

This week we have started to look at what happens in Winter. We have been looking at different types of birds that you see and went on a Winter bird walk this morning to see how many we could see.  We were lucky to see a Robin, some Blackbirds, Pigeons and Starlings. The children each had a clipboard and a worksheet with different birds to spot, when they saw the bird they had to mark it off. The children also made some bird feeders to take home and feed the birds in their gardens.
