New Friends! 4 years – 94 years.

Reception children have visited their new friends today at Stocks Hall. The children have met elderly ladies and gentlemen and spent the morning completing lots of fun activities with them, their favourite being cake decorating.

Watching the children interact with their elderly friends and seeing the happiness on everyone’s faces was heart warming and made me feel incredibly lucky to teach such kind, caring and confident children.

The morning was a huge success and showed what a great community school we are, providing children with incredible experiences.

We are already excited for our next visit!

 

Woodland improvements

This year the Eco-team are planning to improve the woodland area by the football pitch. They have lots of wonderful ideas and hopefully we will make the area a welcoming place for us to enjoy and a suitable habitat for our woodland friends.
First of all, we went on an exploration to see what was there already….

As you can see, there are lots of trees and shrubs and a little pathway to an opening.
Here are some of the ideas our Eco-warriors came up with…

Sam suggested a house for a hedgehog to protect them in winter.

Lola would like to add a frog house for our amphibian friends.

Mason would like to care for the spiders and build another Bug Hotel and Ella would like to make bird feeders and bird houses for our feathered friends.

If you can help in any way, please let us know.

We’ve got the reading bug!

We have been loving learning all of our Phase 2 sounds in phonics. The children have been enjoying segmenting and blending and are able to read their books to their parents which is such an achievement.

We have loved having our own blending line in class. The children run to the board each day to see the different letter sounds and blend them together to make a word.

To see the love that Sycamore children have for books and for reading is wonderful and makes me very proud as their teacher.

Keep it up, Sycamore!
