Our children were invited back to school in their pyjamas for an exciting evening of reading.  The children enjoyed a range of texts with stimulating activities to support story telling. 

We even had hot chocolate with marshmallows!  


Here's some feedback from the evening...

"A fab idea!"

"My child loved it!"

"We will introduce more props to our bedtime stories."

"[It gave us] ideas for interacting and discussing, not just reading."

"Looking forward to the next one!"

Firefighter Visit - 24/09/18

Firefighter Taylor came to visit us to tell us all about what she does. She helped us to learn more about our topic 'People Who Help Us'. We were a bit shy at first but we loved trying on the firefighter helmet. 

We loved listening to Firefighter Taylor and trying on her helmet.
