Action Words

Rocket Launch

On Friday afternoon, because we were not sure when we would all meet again, we decided to do the rocket launch which normally takes place in the Summer Term. Mr Fenn used a pump to push air into a bottle which was part filled with water. It was a little cold on Friday to be doing this very wet job and Mrs Scott very bravely volunteered to help. Mrs Quade volunteered to count down and take the photographs. 

Firefighter Visit! Today Mr Barrett came into class to talk about his real life superhero job as a Firefighter.

WOW stars!
The EYFS Profile requires that we collect information about every child taking into account a range of perspectives including those of the child, parents/carers and other adults who have significant interactions with the child.
To help us achieve this requirement, and also to continue to celebrate your child’s successes, please complete a ‘WOW’ star whenever your child experiences a ‘wow’ moment at home and hand in at school. We will share with the class and award your child a well done sticker.
You will be able to collect the Wow stars from the Early Years Playground and they will also be available to download as a pdf and print off as and when you need them from the bottom of this page.

Here are some 'Wow' examples:


"Whilst hanging out the socks Billy paired them up together and then found out the total by counting in 2’s."


"When looking at a baby photograph of a friend Jenny commented, ‘She looks tiny there, and now she has grown. She had dark brown hair like mine, now she has blonde hair’."


"When offered the choice of puddings Matilda explained that it would be healthier for her to have the fruit rather than the ice cream."
