Yorkshire Wildlife Park Visit

The below will hopefully answer any questions which parents/carers may have about the visit which were not outlined on the letter that was recently sent out.

  • We would like children to wear school uniform as this will make it easier to supervise and group children. It is also practical for the cold weather and walking around the park (We do advise comfy footwear – trainers are fine).
  • We will be visiting the gift shop. The maximum children are allowed to bring is £10. Children do not have to bring spending money though – it is optional.
  • All children will need a thick winter coat (hat, scarf and gloves) as we will be walking around the park either side of the workshops.

Thank you,

Mr Oldridge

Super Sketcher

Sophie created this beautiful wave line drawing in GBlock last week linking to her theme work on the Titanic. Sophie used  different pencils and varied her pencil pressure to show a range of tones. Well done Sophie!

Sensory Snowball Fight

To get us ini the Christmas spirit, Sensory Circuit started with a snowball fight today. The blurry photos show how fast everyone was moving, and we all ended up hot and sweaty after all the fun had finished.

To prepare ouselves for Christmas, our mindfulness meditation was called ‘The Gift of You’ and reminded us that not all presents can be bought, and that being around for other people can be the greatest gift of all.

 

Christmas Choir :)

A heart warming trip to some of our local residential homes this week (Adeline house and Bennfield House). The choir did a fantastic job spreading festive cheer and judging by the smiling faces they helped make some peoples Christmas a very special one. The residents loved chatting to the children about Christmas and loved joining in with singing and dancing too:)

 

Well done 🙂 you did us proud again!

 

    

A big well done from me to the choir and all the effort they put in rehearsing for the Christmas light switch on. A lovely little video here (thank you Miss Knowles) and thank you to all of the support from parents, friends and family. Feeling very festive now!
