Ever Lasting Gobstoppers, Giant Peaches and Big, Friendly Giants

Roald Dahl birthday quiz - how well do you know your Dahl? Quentin Blake

This Tuesday is Roald Dahl Day. Dahl was one of Britain’s most well loved children’s writer. The very first Roald Dahl story I read was James and the Giant Peach and I couldn’t put it down! I thought it would be great fun to live inside an overgrown piece of fruit and travel around having epic adventures. After that, I couldn’t read Dahl’s books quick enough! I think my favourite is Matilda because the characters are funny and it has a happy ending. Why not blog and tell us all about your favourite Roald Dahl book or character.

All of the staff can’t wait to hear your news, so what are you waiting for? Get blogging!back-to-school

Share a Story

bookThis month is ‘Share a Story’ month and The Federation of Children’s Book Groups want to hear your ideas on great places to share a story. You could share a story with your friends or family in the great outdoors, curled up on a sofa, or even high above our Earth on an aeroplane.

Why not blog about your favourite place to share a story with someone? Or write a story to share on the blog.

If you want to enter the competition, you can ask a parent to visit the FCBG website, to get the details. They are running a similar competition to the one we had in school, where you had to send in a photograph of you reading in unusual places.

 Always remember to be E-Safe and get an adult’s permission before you go on to the Internet.

Weekly Blog Theme : Move over Doctor Who

I’ve loved learning about the Egyptians this week. I wish I had a time machine to go back through history to see how people lived then and see the great pyramids being built.

If you had a time machine would you choose to visit an historic event? Or would you go back to see how people lived in a certain land, such as the Anglo-Saxons or people of the Stone Age?th[1]

New Life!

New life is very noticeable this time of year. Year 3 have been watching some baby birds in the trees outside the classrooms and yesterday, I saw little rabbits in a field trying to find some food.

Have a look outside your classroom window, or while you are out and about and let us know if you can see any wildlife in our area.

Green Fingers


Do you have green fingers?

It’s the time of year when all ‘budding’ gardeners get out there and get growing. As part of their homework menu, Year 3 have the opportunity to tell their teachers and friends all about the fruit, vegetables and flowers that they have been growing at home.

Rose, in Crimson Class, was our first green fingered champion, as she started her own carrot growing project, as part of her homework choice.

We have also received some seeds from the International Space Station! The seeds have travelled to Earth from plants grown on the ISS by astronauts like Major Tim Peake. We will be conducting an experiment with the space seeds to see if they grow as well as regular Earth seeds – The truth is out there!

For this week’s blog theme, why not tell us what you have been growing at home. If you haven’t grown anything yet, why not start a plant blog and you can blog whenever you notice a change in your plant?

What are you waiting for? Get sowing and growing!

A Royal Party


We will all be celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday on Thursday this week. We will be looking at the history of Queen Elizabeth’s reign and learning about all of the things she has been doing this year. I’m sure her birthday will be fantastic!
So staying with royalty for this week’s blogging theme, I thought you might like to think about this…
What would you do if you were queen or king for a day? Would you declare a national holiday, so we would all be off school? Or would you make up a new law? Get blogging and practising your royal wave.

Tech Talk

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone has had a fab holiday. Let’s kick off the new term with a new blog. Hmmm, using this ‘techy’ type of communication gives me an idea…

I love my tech stuff – e-mail, Minecraft, iPhone, digital art, e-books, even my juicer has a computer in it! Do you love tech as much as me? Or could you do without it?

Why not blog about what type of electronic or robotic games you use and why you like them?


Happy blogging!

Mrs Pearson.

Spring Term and Celebrating Easter

Nursery Rhymes!

The children have really enjoyed our Nursery Rhyme topic.

We made some story maps to go with these rhymes!

Easter 2016 010

What is your favourite Nursery Rhyme?

We have been learning to listen for rhyme in words.

Can you think of some words which rhyme?



We have been busy looking at our Chatterbox. There were lots of different items to help us remember the Easter Story.

Easter 2016 009

Can you remember what happened in the Easter Story?

We also used symbols to help us remember the sequence of the story.

Easter 2016 014

The children have enjoyed making their Easter cards and are looking forward to our Easter Bonnet Parade and making Easter nests!

Happy Easter from Nursery!
