La Oruga Muy Hambrienta

This term, Key Stage 2 classes will be learning The Hungry Caterpillar story in Spanish. Our first step this week was learning fruits and describing them. The children looked at singular and plural forms of fruits, ensuring the adjectives agreed with the fruit they were describing. eg. a red apple – una manzana roja, red apples – unas manzanas rojas.

I was so impressed with how the children persevered with this tricky bit of grammar and can’t wait to see how they progress this term!

Year 1 Superhero Day!

Year 1 spent an exciting day immersing themselves into the life of a superhero.  There were challenges to make the tallest tower out of dried spaghetti and marshmallows, creating vegetable superheroes as a side-kick for Supertato and even a visit from Wonder Woman herself!

Family Fun Friday

This week we stayed in the warm and looked at some of the artist Pablo Picasso’s work. Picasso was one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century. We had a go at drawing faces in his style-half of the face looking forwards and the other half looking to the side! As you can see, even Elouise Allcorn (aged two) had a go and she had plenty to say too. We were very pleased with our efforts and think that there is talent in our increasing numbers. Perhaps we have a future artist in our midst. Why not come along next week and join us for some Friday Family Fun?

Year 4 visit Mountfitchet Castle

“We had the best time at Mountfitchet Castle, learning all about the Vikings and how they lived. We were able to go inside Viking houses and we even put ourselves in the stocks! We learned all about how the Vikings cruelly tortured people and we really enjoyed feeding and stroking all the live animals that roamed the castle. The best part though, was using a huge catapult and getting the teachers soaked!” Elisa and Nazeefah – Honey Bees

Time to Grow

As we break up for the summer holidays it seems fitting that the last Forest School post shows the apple seeds starting to sprout. Like our children they flourish with the right amount of care and attention. Over the next few weeks they will grow and mature and be ready for the next stage of the growing process. By the time September arrives they will be developing into small tress.


Have a lovely and hopefully lots of time outdoors!
