What happened to the wall?

Category : System

The damage to the prep courtyard wall was a fantastic prompt for writing today.

The students came up with their own stories about what might have caused the damage.


On Sunday I saw a rhino riding a monster truck and the truck crashed into the wall.

I think that a giant whale crashed into the brick wall because she wanted to eat berries for her family dinner

One day 71 rhinoceros ran into the school and there was a crash and a bang and lots of bricks fell down the builders still haven’t finished the wall

On Sunday there were ten evil unicorns. They used their evil magic to blast a big hole in the wall.

They were angry because everyone thought they were cute!

A ghost began eating the school, then the sun began melting the ghost! Then a unicorn stood on the ghost.

 A tiny little drop fell on the school and that tiny drop destroyed the school.

This week we have been exploring money during play. When you’re out shopping with your children encourage them to think about the cost of certain things and find appropriate coins when paying.

Here are a few other ideas for having fun with maths at home.

100 days of school celebration

Category : Foundation , System

On Wednesday we celebrated our 100th day of school. Some students dressed up as 100 year olds were very convincing. Throughout the day we did activities about the number 100, had a visit from the year 5/6 group and even had some cake to celebrate!

Emergency Services Day

Our first dress up day was a great success. Many students dressed up as an emergency service worker and they looked great! We also had three special guests drop in and share some of the responsibilities and tools of their very important job.
