Beach Education

We head to the beach tomorrow for our Beach Education.  The weather is looking good!

Please remember to bring: togs/rash top or wet suit
  • Sun hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Warm jersey or jacket
  • A good lunch and large drink

You are able to wear suitable mufti for this trip.  Please be at school early so we can go through our requirements before leaving on the bus.

Christmas Decorations

Room 15 made some Christmas tree decorations using card, wool and beads. First we had a triangle shaped piece of card. Then we had to wrap different couloured wool around the card going in different directions to keep the wool in place. Finally we threaded some beads on to the last pieces of wool to decorate it.


Before bringing home our writing books, we looked back through our writing from this year and shared back to the class the thing that we thought we had improved the most as well as our favourite piece of writing.

Tadpoles and Frogs

Room 15 currently have a tank with a few frogs and tadpoles in it. The tadpoles live in the water at the bottom and have already started to grow legs. The tadpoles are fed fish food.
The frogs spend most of their time out of the water and have some logs to rest on and a castle to hide in.
The frogs like to eat live house flies. They can not be too big for the tiny frogs, because they might choke. It is quite hard to catch a lot of live flies, so you can buy a pot of fly lavae from pets shops. There is a small hole in the top of the pot for the flies to get out ready to be eaten!
