On Friday 17th November, children across the whole school celebrated their uniqueness by wearing odd socks. The day started with an assembly by the Happiness Heroes, who explained their role in school and upcoming projects they have planned. Back in class, everyone learnt about what bullying is and how to ‘Make a Noise’ about bullying to put an end to it.
What an amazing turn out we had for our first Workshare of the year. Lots of proud children sharing their amazing learning with parents and carers!
We have been learning about the changes that Autumn brings in Reception and so we decided to see if we could find any evidence of Autumn arriving in Queen’s Hills. The children worked in pairs and hunted for Autumn items from a checklist. All of the children did super listening and showed our 3 school rules of Ready, Safe and Respectful!
Reception had an amazing water fun day today. The children enjoyed playing lots of different water related games and they ended with a big water fight!
On Thursday we went on our school trip to Gressenhall.
We met Cinderella, Jack, Griselda, the Wicked Witch and the Curator. We enjoyed helping Griselda and Cinderella with their chores, searching for the magic bean with Jack, making potions with the Witch and even going on a tractor ride.
At the end we found all the objects and finally fixed the magical museum.
The children then wrote about their trip.
Reception had their first visit to the outdoor classroom. They were fantastic and walked carefully down. Once there they enjoyed den building, bug hunting and making nature bracelets and necklaces.
What an amazing turn out we had for our Big Toddle Reception Event today! The children were all dressed up in safari outfits and joined in with a range of activities, including balance beams, obstacle courses and throwing and catching races.
