Gym-tastic at Devizes School!
A Gym-tastic afternoon!
The children from Chestnut and Beech classes had exciting visit today to Devizes School for a Primary School gym festival. We did jumping, travelling, made shapes and did rolling, all inspired by a brilliant gymnastics display to music by some Year 7 girls. Well done to all and thank you to the parents who helped us!

What a lot we have learnt from our chicks' visit this term: we've drawn and written about the chicken life cycle, kept chick diaries, learnt new vocabulary, sorted them by colour, size and weight and learnt what you need to keep chicks alive! We've also learnt that sometimes -even with everything they need - chicks don't always survive. But what a lovely time we've had watching them hatch and grow. Farewell our feathered friends!
Bye bye Chestnut chicks!
It was the chicks' last day today! Farewell!

Family Learning: Storymaking
Family Learning: Thank you to all the parents who turned up (on a rainy Thursday afternoon) to do STORY MAKING in Chestnut Class with their children! We used dice to generate characters, settings, problems and objects for our stories and then post-its, pens and large paper to draw and write them...they were fantastic! There was even a sprinkling of magic objects. We really got excited about who and what was in our stories. Look out for photos next week...Thank you again, and well done to all!

Chestnut Class went to Devizes library today! First, we learnt about library cards, how long you can borrow books for and what types of books the library has. Next, we had to go and find a book, and explain why we chose it. Some people liked the cover or illustrations and some liked the subject matter. Lastly, William read us some funny picture stories. Devizes library is a great place to visit on a rainy day!
