Today we had a visit from Mrs Hough who is a veterinary surgeon.  Mrs Hough talked to us about what a day in the life of a vet is like.  She explained how she gives injections to pets and showed us different sized syringes.  She also showed us lots of different x-rays that she has took and she dressed one of our children up as a vet.

The treat of the afternoon was when she introduced us to Tortuga, her tortoise.  Tortuga is Russian tortoise and he is 8 years old.  The children loved her! 

As part of our topic 'People Who Help Us' we visited Manchester Airport.  Despite the weather, we had an amazing time.  We took turns playing in the flight deck, we all dressed up and took part in role-play activities.  We even saw Concorde!

I would like to thank all the parents who came along to help us.

On Tuesday Class R were very excited when Captain Campbell came to give us a talk about his role as a pilot at Manchester Airport.  He told us all about different aircraft, how to fly the planes and where he flies to.  Captain Campbell also took our own Class Ted on the flights with him, where he met all the cabin crew - lucky Ted!

Cleo was chosen to dress as a pilot and she really looked the part, well done Captain Cleo!

Sports Day Photos

We had a fabulous time visiting the farm animals and we were very excited.  We were allowed to stroke the pets and learned lots about the visiting animals.  We were also very well behaved.
We have been busy planting flowers and seeds in our newly acquired welly boots to make our courtyard prettier.
Having fun in our new role-play area.

Making Easter Cakes

Having fun creating algorithms with the Bee bots.


Today we learned all about birds of prey.  We saw a Falcon, Buzzard and an Eagle Owl to name a few.  The birds were trained and a few lucky children were able to have the Tawny Owl stand on their arms.  The children were very brave and did exactly what the trainer told them.  The birds were brought from Pembrokeshire. 

Grappenhall Heys Walled Gardens

We had a great time at the Walled Gardens making scarecrows.  

We also helped to make a large scarecrow that we brought back to school and he now lives in the garden near Class R.

Just a few things to note:

  • Fresh water and milk are provided each day and your child can access drinks any time during the day, so no water bottles are needed
  • The home link book should be kept in your child's plastic wallet and returned to school daily
  • Soon your child will bring a reading book home, along with a reading record book.  Please comment in here every time you read with your child
  • Could you please ensure your child's purse, uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with their name on
