This week  is, Problem Solving Week and we have been working on the problem,

'Do the tallest trees have the biggest leaves?'


The children have been on welly walks looking at the many trees around our School. They discovered it is difficult to answer this question in Spring time as most trees are only starting to bud. However they found leaves on two tall trees and discovered they were actually small leaves. The children have also collected natural objects on their walks and made Forest School Crowns.

British Values




The children have been voting on their favourite cbeebies show this week. 'Bing' was the most popular!


This week we have finalised a set of class rules. After talking about how we think we should behave towards each other and how we should look after our classroom environment inside and outside we have set out our rules and have displayed them in the classroom to remind us.
