In Reception,the children have been busy sewing, making Diva lamp to celebrate festivals across the season this term. They have been builders, engineers, chefs and so much more.
As part of their story The Gingerbread Man, the children have been busy making their very own Gingerbread men. From writing instructions, measuring different ingredients and pouring to mixing, rolling and cutting, everyone has learned and developed various skills. The children have worked hard to draw their own designs by labeling each part of their gingerbread man before decorating it all by themselves using icing tubes and an array of sprinkles. Everyone was so excited and they could not wait to try them. What fantastic learning!
Years 1 & 2

They not only used their creativity to explore different ideas, but also explained why they have used certain elements before getting hands on and sewing their webs. How spooky! No doubt they will be perfect addition for Halloween.
This half term, KS1 have been busy getting ready for Christmas! They have been incredibly thoughtful when creating two designs and explaining why they would like to make one over the other.

No doubt Santa will be very impressed with their stockings when he climbs down the chimney this year.
