On Friday Foundation Stage had a special visit from a storyteller. We joined in singing songs and enjoyed listening to a traditional story performed by the storyteller.
Children from Sycamore went to Judy Woods on Thursday. We learned about the different trees in the woods, the seasons and how they affect the trees. We also played in the water and got muddy.
Little Movers Make Giant Strides.
Weavers enjoyed their introduction to their new IEYC Topic Little Movers Make Giant Strides. They took part in activities under and on top of their tables.
‘Lost in Translation’
The European Day of Languages was first set up by the European Council in 2001. Now, it takes place every year on 26th September.
To celebrate that we live in a rich continent full of interesting languages, we have recreated a book called ‘Lost in Translation’ which is a compilation of words/phrases in different languages that don’t have a literal translation in any other language.
Hope you really like it!

Nurture Group 17/10/19
This week the Nurture group has been helping out in Reception. Mrs Wilson asked if we could build a Mud Kitchen, we were only too pleased to help. The children read the instructions and learned to use new tools. At the end of the session we had created something really stunning.
Today,s Bike-ability lesson took us to Halfords, where we bought tools and spare inner-tubes, to repair the remainder of the school bikes. We also purchased some new helmets for the children in reception.
The highlight of the day was when one of the team members managed to ride their bike unaided for the first time.
Bedtime Stories Competition Winners
These are our winners for the Bedtime Stories competition. The children in Year 5 had to create a new character for the new Shaun the Sheep film Farmageddon. Our winners were Subhan, Matej, Yousaf and Fatima. They will be entered into a draw against all the other BD5 schools and could win free tickets to see the film. We wish them luck.
Due to the bad weather today, bike-ability moved indoors. Mrs Fisher ask if we would help build a mud kitchen. All the children worked extremely well together and we all thought the end result was amazing.
Mr Calcraft visited Weavers today, we built a tent and had loads of fun. We hope he comes back next week!
Children from year 5 and year 4 have been fixing and cleaning the school bikes. Over the next few weeks we will be learning how to fix punctures and how to ride safely.
McMillan coffee morning
To help raise money for McMillan coffee, children from Sycamore building have been baking cakes and buns. These will be sold to all the children, at St Stephens, for 50 pence each.
