Miss Finn becomes Mrs Hunt.

On Saturday 3rd September Miss Finn celebrated her wedding to Mr James Hunt at St James the Greater Church. Despite the rainy day the ceremony was beautiful with some lovely hymns and a choir. The children from 2JV ( last term) had made the bride a fantastic good luck charm which she wore on the day. The couple then went on to celebrate at their reception,held at Brooksby Hall,where the weather had improved, enabling some lovely photos to be taken in the beautiful surroundings. Later that evening many of her Stoneygate friends joined her to dance the night away!

Good luck for your future together Mr and Mrs Hunt.

Our Imaginary Trip to China

We started our very exciting trip to China by making sure we had our passports and tickets to hand.  We flew with Stoneygate Airways and had wonderful service on the plane.  We were served delicious food by the flight attendants and the pilots made sure we had a safe flight.

Winter Fun

We have had lots of fun and enjoyed our winter activities.

We sponged a wintery background using cold colours and blew runny brown paint across the paper to create bare winter trees.

Squelching in the mud and creating muddy boot prints was messy but great fun!

We adapted the Bear Hunt story and went on a hibernating hedgehog hunt instead.  We had a hot chocolate to keep us warm on our adventure.  We found frosty tennis courts which looked like a frozen lake, bare winter trees in the forest, snowdrops growing around the wood and finally a hedgehog hibernating amongst the fallen leaves.

We used a block of ice which was very cold and experimented with salt and hot water to see which melted it the fastest.  The salt made the ice crackle loudly but the hot water melted the ice more quickly but quietly.

We used our cutting skills to make snowflakes out of paper and decorated our classroom with them to give it a wintery feel.

In ICT we used the Google search engine to find winter pictures and chose our favourite  scene to print off.

The Reception children had great fun hunting for the bear at Carisbrooke Road Arboretum. They acted out the story in the lovely surrounds of the Arboretum on a gorgeous autumn day. The children took turns following the map to hunt down the bear and were rewarded by a glimpse of a small bear in his cave. However, we soon had to make a run for it as we had disturbed Daddy bear and heard him roaring in the undergrowth. We had fun exploring different activities and put our creations together to retell the story.
