Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, we are thrilled to announce the arrival of our newest storytime sensation - “Supertato and the Evil Pea!” The escapades of our brave, tuberous hero, Supertato and his mischievous foe, the Evil Pea, have captured the hearts and giggles of our young learners. Who knew vegetables could be so entertaining? The creative juices were flowing as we dived into activities inspired by Supertato’s heroic feats. Through our talk for writing sessions we have been learning the story with the help of actions thought up by the children of Year 1. We have been predicting what was going to happen next and learning the correct sequence of the story using a story map. We are also delighted to share the fantastic progress that our talented Year 1 students have made during their initial rehearsals for this year’s Christmas play, “The Grumpy Sheep”. They have obviously worked hard over the half term break to learn their lines and their dedication and enthusiasm have been evident on our return. From mastering their lines to perfecting their movements, it’s evident that the children have embraced their roles with great gusto! This week our young scientists delved into the sense of smell through a hands-on investigation of various potent aromas! The children had the opportunity to engage their senses in a unique and memorable way. They had to identify a variety of hidden smells, such as marmite, spring onion and vinegar. The children did very well and came up with excellent suggestions.
