Science experiment

We wanted to find out what plants need to survive and be healthy. So we planted cress seeds. One had light and water, one had just light, one had water and no light and one had no light and no water. We predicted what we thought would happen. Take a look what happened:

East Midlands Ambulance Service Paramedic Visit

Wow! We have had a fantastic day with our parent governor, Richard, who came to talk to us about being a paramedic and what we could do in an emergency.

We learnt how to dial 999 and request help from an ambulance and then talked about ‘big accidents’ that need an ambulance and ‘little accidents’ that grown ups can deal with themselves at home or school.

Richard then showed us his kit bags that he carries in the Fast Response Vehicle with all the equipment that may be used to help us. We pretended that Katy had hurt her leg and Richard and the children checked her heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen and temperature before deciding that she just needed a bandage and some Calpol!

After this, we had lots of fun sitting in the Fast Response Vehicle and turning on the VERY loud sirens and lights before trying on the ‘mini’ paramedic uniforms and working as paramedics in our very own ambulance in the playground.

We finished our session with some colouring sheets with lots of emergency vehicles on them and then Richard read us a story all about an ambulance.

All the children behaved amazingly well and all joined in with the different activities, we are very proud of them!!

Take a look at all the fun we had in the photos below!



Nottinghamshire School Holidays 17-18


Autumn Term 1

In Year 3-4 this term we have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

We began our topic with our exciting launch day where we were cast back into 449 AD at the end of the Roman Empire. Our guide, Edward, told us all about what life was like to be an Anglo-Saxon and even told us the story of Beowulf! We then learnt how to combat as Viking warrior, giving our war hero a proper burial.

We have really enjoyed reading our class book this term in English – ‘How to train your dragon ’ In particular, we have really enjoyed learning about different sentences and all of their wonderful, yet important, ingredients! We are all trying really hard to ensure we don’t forget these in our writing.

This term our maths topic is based around number and place value; in particular, understanding Th H T and U. We are trying really hard to spot patterns and apply our reasoning in our problem solving. I would still like to see children taking extra care in learning their times tables as these are so important!

We have PE on a Tuesday and Forest Schools on a Wednesday afternoon (until Christmas), which the children thoroughly enjoyed last week.


Welcome Back to Foundation One!

The Foundation One team would like to welcome you all back to Foundation One after the Summer Holidays! We hope that you have all had a lovely time off with your families and have had lots of adventures. We can’t wait to hear all about them.

Our Topic
We have a very busy half term ahead of us – our topic is ‘People Who Help Us’ and we are hoping to get some very special visitors to come into school to talk about their jobs and show us the equipment they use.

Superstar Readers
We are continuing to set the challenge of sharing at least 5 stories a week with your family and will be awarding ‘Superstar Readers’ stickers each week to the families who achieve this. Your names will also appear on our Superstar Reader ‘Wall of Fame’ and there will be a half termly prize for the children that share the most stories.

Attendance and Punctuality
Can we remind you that it is very important that your child attends nursery every day and arrives on time. Arriving on time allows you to have quick discussions with key workers if needed and also allows your child to settle in and find out about the sessions activities.

Dropping off and picking up
Can we please remind you to wait outside the gate to the Foundation Stage playground when dropping off in the morning and picking up at the end of school? It is also unacceptable to allow older or younger siblings to play with the activities and equipment while waiting. We have had lots of activities and resources damaged due to this happening and would appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Forest School
Our Forest School day this year has moved to a Tuesday. Please remember to bring named wellies in a named carrier bag (please do not allow your child to wear them to school) along with a warm clothes, hat, gloves and scarf when necessary. We will inform you when our sessions will begin due to our new children being given time to settle in to nursery routines.

New Starters
And finally…we will also be welcoming lots of new friends into F1 during the next few weeks. We hope that they will settle in easily, make lots of new friends and most importantly have lots of fun!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday!

Katy, Lianne and Sarah


Year 5 are fully immersed in our new book for the term.
