We had a lovely picnic with games on the field to celebrate the end of term. The children sang to me a version of my "happy song" (Don't leave me this way by The Communards) which they had been practising in secret with Mrs Humphreys.
Finally the children gave me a beautiful heart picture of thumb prints and a card to say goodbye.
Alps - you have been super learners and a fabulous group to teach this year - in school and at home. I will miss you all! And a special thankyou to Mrs Humphreys for being a great job share. Good luck to everyone for next year in Daffodils. Best wishes and virtual hugs from Mrs Edwards
Alps spent a lovely afternoon exploring and climbing around the trees in our Forest School area. My, how the trees and bushes have grown!
We linked this summer's DT project with our history of Victorian Toys. We all built a working Pull-along truck from cardboard boxes, using cardboard wheels and wooden rods for the axles.
We realised that the wheels didn't turn easily on the rod and that if we taped the rod to the bottom of the box it wouldn't be free to turn around. So we inserted each rod into a straw which was taped to the box and used blue tack to fix the wheels in place - problem solved!
Here are some photos whilst we were working on our trucks:
And here are all the finished products.
