Reception have been so engaged today learning all about how to be safe when crossing the road. We all practised our Green Cross Code, using a pedestrian crossing and following the instructions from a lollipop person. We were all fantastic at being super safe near the road!
Our Community Officer PC Talbot, and Police Community Support Officer Caroline, came to visit Early Years today! They talked about lots of different ways that the police help us. We got to look at their police car, speak on the police radio and some of us even wanted to try on the police uniform!
Reception and Nursery were visited this morning by Margret and Quella. Quella is from the Guide Dog Association. We found out so much about the important job Quella does to make sure that Margret is independent. We even got to stroke Quella and say hello – we loved it!
Wow! Early years blew everyone away with their magnificent performance of Whoops a Daisy Angel. It was hard to believe that the children were only age 3 -5 years old. the show stole the audience hearts!
Early years welcomed their grown ups into school this week to play!
We had a visit from the Dog Trust today, The children learned about how dogs have feelings and how we would approach a dog to keep us safe and not to distress the dog.
Reception learning about health and fitness by making fruit kebabs and playing basketball.
Reception children explored direction and practised listening to instructions. It was so much fun that quite a few of the children continued to play after the game was over.
Parents and Carers joined their children for an afternoon helping bees, butterflies and other insects. Everyone planted wildflowers to help the school grounds for nature, they then made a recycled butterfly feeder, plant pot and hanging basket full of butterfly friendly flowers to take home.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to West Boldon Lodge for working with us.
