We had some visitors today. 10 children came from Burtonwood School to look around our school and to get to know us. When they arrived it was playtime, so we went outside and they really liked our playground equipment. After that they had a look round the school. They couldn't believe how big our school is and how many stairs there are!
We then went into our new forest school area and tried to build shelters by tying a rope between two trees. It was hard and we needed to work in a team with our new friends. When we got our shelters up, we had a delicious hot chocolate and a biscuit. Then the fire alarm went off, so we had to evacuate to the Astro turf!!!!
We ate dinner with our visitors and had a great time outside at lunch and then it was time for them to go back to their school. We were very sad to see them go, but are really looking forward to visiting their school in November. We can't wait to find out how it is different from our school.
We have been trying to learn the countries of Europe. We know where Portugal is!!!!! 🇵🇹
we are going to have a quiz each week now until the end of term to see if we can all learn where each country is. A homework sheet will go home tomorrow. You don't need to bring this back to school. Keep it at home and practise every night!
A mysterious envelop arrived in class this morning. It was large and white and had 'our wilbraham friends' written on the front. We had to wait all day...right until story time...to open the envelope.
We opened the envelope and inside there was a letter for each of us from our friends at Burtonwood School. We were so excited! We can't wait to meet up next week.
