The whole school took part in Rail Safety Day. The children watched a video and took part in many activities related to Rail Safety. This is an extremely important subject as we have a train station with a level crossing at the end of the road. The atmosphere in the school was great, as the children made, posters, models and podcasts including all of the facts they had learnt today.

Author visit
We welcomed author Nikki Lewis into school this week, Nikki is a local writer who has written a number of children’s books. she came in to talk to pupils about two new books she has written and are to be released later next year. It was a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to put a face to the name on the cover of a book and also listen to stories told directly by the author. Reception very much enjoyed being read to, while Year 3 took part in a mini-writing workshop which explored the planning involved in writing a story.
   
No Pens Day – As part of Speech and Language UK’s, No Pens Day, several of our classes enjoyed activities that promoted work without pens and instead supported speech, language and communication skills. Year 4 used LEGO to model Stonehenge, which supported their topic work.

While Year 3 were outside for their numeracy work making the most of the lovely sunshine, where they were exploring estimating. They were counting steps around the daily mile and comparing children’s steps, as well as making symmetrical pictures using natural objects.
