We've had such an active week this week! Sports day was so much fun and all the extra P.E. this week has us all feeling fit and healthy! This morning Willow class tried their hands at tennis. We learned how to hold the rackets, strike and return a ball to our pairs. It was such a fun activity!
This week it’s our annual Active Sports week! Each day children in all classes will have access to PE, will be active in their classrooms through dance and exercise and will be getting workshops in rugby, cricket and tennis!
All children are also encouraged to Walk, Skate, Cycle or Scoot to school each day!
On Thursday we will be having our sports day (weather permitting!) with children’s engaging in lots of active play and sport for the whole day.
For the week children should wear suitable clothing each day (runners, tracksuit, shorts, sun cream, rain jacket) so that they can participate fully!
Let’s all make this a super Active end to our amazingly active year!
Being Active makes your smile, basketball, swimming or running a mile! #BeActive #ActiveFlag #ASW19
We tasted some fresh lettuce grown from our garden today. It was so delicious! We love growing and tasting our own food and how it keeps our bodies feeling healthy!
First class had a brillant time on Monday at Airfield Estate and farm! We petted lots of farm animals, tasted milk from the creamery, ate edible flowers, went on a mini-beast hunt and played together in the playground. Thanks to all our families for making this lovely day possible, all the boys and girls had so much fun!

Huge congrats to Euan in Willow class for winning student of the week this week. Euan was a leader of learning in our class this week. He taught us so much about Japan, Origami and he brought in Sushi for us to make! We had so much fun, Euan was a brillant teacher!
Willow class have been learning all about Japan as part of Intercultural May. We've learning about its language, culture, tradition and artists. Today we made Sushi with Euan in our class. He showed us the ingredients, how to roll the sushi and we all tasted some. It was delicious!
