This week we have been out on our school field having a fun jubilee forest schools lesson. The children made jubilee sticks, leaf bunting and royal necklaces. They also used red, white and blue paint to do some Union Jack painting on a large sheet. It was amazing to see how independent the children were doing all the activities. Well done everyone .

We are enjoying using our new Reading Nook. We have put in lots of stories about Princes and Princesses and lots of our other favourites too. It is so brilliant to see the children engaging with books they love and sharing them with their friends.

Today we had a Zog inspired Dress Up Day! We have started our topic of Proud Princesses, Noble Knights and Creepy Castles. We made crowns, shields, designed and built castles, created jewellery, made dragon masks and much more! We hope you like our Royal Pictures!

Reception practised singing some lovely Spring songs and invited families to come and watch. We sang about Easter Bunnies, green frogs, Spring chickens, blossoming flowers and we all made and wore Easter Bonnets. We raised money for the Good Shepherd fund to help others.
March 31st Theatre Trip
F2 had a brilliant trip to see (by Julia Donaldson) at West Yorkshire Playhouse today. We loved the story of Zog and the Flying Doctors and we thought it was very exciting when Princess Pearl was captured in the castle. Luckily there was a happy ending! We will be all ready to springboard our Royal topic after Easter! We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the play but we thoroughly enjoyed the journey into Leeds and then back to Crossgates on a double decker bus!

It was National Poetry Day on Monday and F2 are definitely poetry lovers! We hope you like our recital of "Oh Dear" by Michael Rosen.

Our Voting Station.
We enjoy using our Voting Station in F2. Today we are voting for which book we prefer. The book that has the most votes posted on will be read at Story Time. I predict today’s book will be The Tiger who came for Tea! The votes will be counted and announced by Dylan this afternoon.

Welcome back children! We have had an exciting day back after our half term holiday. We enjoyed sharing our news with our teachers and friends!
It is Keeping Ourselves Safe week. We had an assembly this morning and Mr. Hutchinson talked about all the ways in which we can keep ourselves safe. We then chatted about our Golden Rules and how we can keep ourselves safe.
We have had a very busy day!
We are enjoying our new Phonics and Reading Scheme, Little Wandle!
