Home Learning pyramid… Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Bloom’s HL – the seaside

Heroes Week

We have been doing lots of outdoor learning this week, especially when learning about capacity, floating and sinking- the weather has really been fabulous for us!

We are, however, looking ahead now to next week -HEROES WEEK- and thinking about all the exciting plans!

We will be having talks from various local heroes and are looking forward to hearing about heroic jobs and people within the community.

Don’t forget that, on Friday, you can dress up as one of the heroes you have learned about and bring in a bottle for ‘Pop and Proms’ instead of a donation.


Thank you for your continued support,

The Early Years Team

Marwell Meerkat Madness!


Can you believe how busy we have been this week?

Not only did some lovely parent helpers take us to Marwell but we even had a visit from Trish and Sam from Petersfield South Central Ambulance Service!

Home learning this week is to learn your home address in case of an emergency and, if you can, write some facts about the animals you saw!

Have a happy and restful weekend,,

Miss Moncreaff and Mrs Stray


Are you looking forward to Monday? We certainly are!

Please bear in mind these top tips:


The weather on Monday is currently forecast to be warm with scattered showers. We therefore ask that every child has:

  • School uniform
  • Sensible shoes they can walk in (we don’t want any blisters!)
  • A rucksack (as your child will be carrying their own lunch until 11.30am)
  • A water bottle (no fizzy drinks)


  • A layer of sun-cream on
  • A lightweight, hooded, waterproof coat (e.g. pack-a-mac)

If your child is bringing their own lunch please ensure it is in a disposable bag in their rucksack, no glass or fizzy drinks please! Please don’t send in a lunchbox or plastic containers as your child will have to carry this round the zoo all day.

Lastly, we will not be visiting the gift-shop as we simply won’t have enough time. Please do not send your child in with money.

Thank you for your support, we are very much looking forward to Monday.
