  • Tuesday 10 January 2023 Wolves! The year 3 and 4 have had a very exciting start back to the new term. As part of their new topic ‘Wolves!’ they had a visit from two real wolves, Alice and Moonshine, and their trainers from Watermill Wolves. These famous wolves are very highly trained and have been used in film and television shows. The children had an amazing experience and learnt about wolves in the wild as well as how they live and their family groups. They were able to touch and stroke the wolves and even tickle them under the chin, where they like it the most. The children have come away realising that the big bad wolf from the fairy tales might not be so big and bad after all!
  • Monday 9 January 2023 Walk to the Park Today the year 1 and year 2 children went on a walk to the local park to identify the different types of trees. After identifying the trees, the children collected some leaves, sticks, acorns and more in order to continue learning about trees and woodland habitats at school. Although the children thoroughly enjoyed the trip, I think they were more excited to have 5 minutes of fun in the park prior to our return to school.
