Naughty Bus is on the loose!
The children thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Naughty Bus' by Jan and Jerry Oke. They were very shocked to find their classroom in such a mess and Naughty Bus nowhere to be found! The children made wanted posters and put them around the school. They eventually found Naughty Bus causing chaos in Class 1!

Have you ever found a fan - ta- stick stick? Well, Class R have this week! They enjoyed reading all about Stanley's adventures with his stick and created their own magical adventures with their own sticks.
Anti - Bullying Week
Class R explored friendship this week. They thought about what they feel makes a good friend and the kind of friend they are to others.
This week, we began by sharing all the knowledge we already had about hedgehogs. We then explored some fiction and non - fiction books and found out some really interesting information!
Did you know that hedgehogs can swim!
The children worked together to build homes for hedgehogs in Forest School.
The Role Play corner turned into a 'Dark Den'.
