We have enjoyed celebrating World Book Day and didn’t let the snow days stop us from putting together a fantastic assembly all about it. The children performed with confidence and really enjoyed learning ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. Over the last two weeks we have taken part in book hunts, dressing up days, DEAR time (Drop Everything And Read) and have had fun making books and bookmarks, and ordering stories.

We have really enjoyed the snow this week in Reception. It has given us the opportunity to think about Winter and how to dress warmly. We have been practising zipping up coats and changing into wellies, hats, scarves and gloves. We have had fun building snowmen, making snow angels and even painting the snow different colours.

Wow! What a fantastic day we had at Churnet Valley Railway aboard The Polar Express! We enjoyed a ride on a steam train, hot chocolate, gingerbread decorating and wrote letters to Santa.
