  • Trip, trap, trip

    Published 15/10/21

    We have had a very busy and exciting time, after hearing the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

    We had a lot of fun acting out the story in the woods, especially building a rickety bridge for the troll to live underneath.

    We learned to retell the story by creating a story map and using the actions from Talk4Writing. This helped us to remember our story language and connectives.

     

    Then we changed parts of the traditional story to create our own versions and acted these out with small world animals.

     

    We also explored the best ways to make a foil bridge. We thought that folding it over and over again or twisting it make the bridge quite sturdy.

  • Hello from Darling Class

    Published 22/09/21

    We thought you might like to take a peek at what we have been doing in Darling Class these first few weeks of school.

    As well as making new friends and getting to know our new environment, we have been busy...

    In the kitchen baking delicious treats...

    Selecting resources and getting creative...

    Exploring and engaging in the outdoors...

    Letting stories feed our imaginations...

    Playing games with our friends and having fun while we learn...

    Learning to be responsible and nurturing...

    Working as a team...

    and when all of our hard work is done, we have just squeezed in time for a tea break...

  • Darling Class Sea Life Museum

    Published 13/07/21

    Open for one day only, the Darling Class Sea Life Museum show-cased some of the creativity and learning that has gone on in Darling Class over the past few weeks.

    And who better to invite as our visitors... our BUDDIES!

    We showed them our sea creature models and the information we had written about these fascinating animals. Then, together we searched the museum to find the answers to the Darling Class sea-life quiz!

     

     

    Outside, the museum continued with a sea creature maze. We loved chatting to our buddies about the sea creatures we spotted as we found our way through.

    We also challenged our buddies to free the sea creatures who had become trapped in ice! (Not as easy as it looks, and we cheered when our buddy was successful!)

     

     

    Finally, we sat down to share sea creature biscuits we had baked and enjoy some water play...

     

    Thank you buddies for the most enjoyable and memorable day!

  • Darling visit the Big Woods

    Published 05/07/21

    While we spend a lot of time in the woods on the school grounds, today was very exciting, as we ventured to the Big Woods!

    We explored all the nooks and crannies...

     

    Joined the circus and walked the trapeze...

     

    We boarded a pirate ship and sailed the seven seas...

     

    Hoisted the main sail and raised the flag...

    before digging for buried treasure...        

    Then it was time to make a camp fire and settle down at home,

     cook some dinner ... and RELAX!

  • Deep sea diving

    Published 28/06/21

    Inspired by the story 'Dougal's Deep Sea Diary' by Simon Bartram, we decided that exploring the ocean would be great fun, but that a submarine would mean that we could all go together...

    So, we set about building our very own submarine ...

     

    securing the sides...

    adding in the portholes ...

     

    and periscopes...

    then finally, a roof!

    We made ourselves tickets for this amazing voyage ...

     

    and set off on an adventure of a lifetime...

    However, the fun did not stop there because lo and behold, out of the ocean who would we meet, but swashbuckling pirates...

    each in their own private boat, looking for Atlantis and hidden treasure!

    Not wanting any trouble, we joined forces and explored our underwater world together. Phew!!

  • Teddy Bears' Picnic and Sports Day fun

    Published 22/06/21

    Today we welcomed our new Reception children into school for a Teddy Bears' Picnic and Sports Day fun.

    We hoola-hooped...

     

       and chased those that got away.

     

    We ever so carefully took our eggs on a spoon for a walk...

     

    ... helped our teddies navigate their way round the cones.

    Finally, we raced to the finish line of the obstacle course!

    A truly wonderful morning and a well deserved picnic and certificate.
