We had a fabulous finish to our first half term and a celebration on Friday Afternoon to finish our topic Happy, Healthy Me.
Winners of the Beautiful Babies competition were both Phoebe and Freya- congratulations to them and thank you to all the parents for a fun and enjoyable afternoon. We raised over £25 for our class charity Shelter through selling our artwork- an excellent start to our fundraising.
We enjoyed our trip to Oakham market and our fruit crumble making. We also made real lemonade for our Fabulous finish.
Forest schools was a lovely sunny day and our Harvest Festival and collection made our Harvest a Bright one !
We had a great morning at Oakham Library with Diane the Librarian.
We listened to the story of supertato and chose a set of books for our classroom. Children will be bringing home details of how you can join Oakham Library if you wish to do so.
