Welcome back everyone for the last half of the summer term.
We have been very lucky to have yet another visitor to FSU who helps us in their job. We have been looking at the role of the Paramedic. The children have been asking questions to find out information.
What things can you recall from the visit?
Not everyone is keen to help …. we are reading the story of The Little Red Hen this week, Did The Little Red Hen do the right thing by not sharing the bread? What would you have done and why?
A special thank you Gary the Gardener for helping us to plant our strawberry, tomato and lettuce plants.
Hello Mrs Godfrey, thank you for helping us in the office!
Can you think of 5 things that I do in the office ?
Well done everyone with their fire fighter challenges, the details are important !
This week we are looking at the role of the fire fighters. We have been learning about the uniform and the equipment they need to do their job and keep everyone safe.
We have been finding our FIRE EXIT signs, and remembering what we have to do if the Fire alarm goes off in school to be safe.
Take a look and listen carefully at this video clip – https://youtu.be/Vc5BXz1tGb4
Can you name 5 items you would find on a fire engine, or what a fire fighter needs for their job. Make a list and bring it in to show your teacher ! ( MME badge)

We explored the meaning of EASTER through stories and activities and had a little extra fun with egg rolling and an EASTER Bonnet Parade raising money for our school fund. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Mars children have been learning about tunnels. We have looked at images of the ‘channel tunnel’. Our challenge was to build a tunnel, you have to be able to go through it !
Miss Crump’s group have been testing different liquids to see which one will go down the board the fastest. We all had a good guess and were surprised to see the result! Why not have a go at some experiments at home and tell us your results ?

Hello again, we have been sharing the story of Goldilocks and the Three bears this week.
We are learning new words and starting to draw and write the story too.
The children have enjoyed making and eating porridge for snack. They have mixed the dry oats with water and heated it, in the microwave before eating it when it was ‘ just right !’
Our Priory Bear is on his way to you, so please remember to have fun and record the adventures in the diary provided. The children are very interested to find out what the bear has been up to when he comes back to school.
Wow! What a fantastic day full of reading and sharing brilliant books dressed in our pyjamas.
The FSU children shared books at Wiggly Worship, and with our talking friends at Westwood.
We had children from Year 3 who had made their own books to read with us and we shared books with our brothers, sisters, parents and carers.
Mr Little wood walked us through the jungle so we made exciting animal sounds and the teachers read to us too!
Thank you to everyone for making it a great fun day in FSU and school.
We challenge you all to complete the star sheet sent home let us know when you have done them all and tell us which was your favourite?
Keep reading a little every day
Wow what a busy week ! We have been on lots of bear hunts, walking and talking through the story.
Well done children if you remembered all the different environments in the story; long wavy grass, deep cold river, thick oozy mud ! etc.
Yes we are encouraging our children and families to read and share stories even more than their 10 minutes every day !
Remember to wear your pajamas so we can snuggle up and read together. We look forward to seeing you all !
We are beginning to talk about lent and things we can give up like Jesus asked the disciples to do. We will be talking about positive things we can do, to show we care. What could you give up for lent, or do that is kind or caring ? We have 24 fun ideas for you to try at home over the next few weeks !
