Eco club had a lovely time on Friday making “Eco friendly” Christmas cards! We used card and paper which had been put out to be thrown away, and added leaves and berries. We did use some sequins but we have learnt how using sequins and glitter outdoors is not a good idea as they can be harmful to wildlife.0 Comments
Nursery and Reception have been having a wonderful time outdoors exploring the icy conditions. We have been finding and describing 2D and 3D shapes made of ice, and talking through icy windows! This morning we also set up an investigation to see what happens if we leave some water and sequins in trays overnight. Will it be cold enough to freeze tonight? If so we will have some icy decorations! If not we will carefully gather all our sequins for another day so they are not dangerous to all the wildlife we have around school.0 Comments
Nursery and Reception were delighted with the first snow today. We ran around cheering while it was snowing, then afterwards looked closely at what had settled. We talked about how it looked and felt, and what might happen to it next. Why was it disappearing? What does melting mean? We hope to have some more soon!0 Comments
Another amazing day at KIND. We are so sad that it is our last day but have been so lucky to have such a great opportunity. Thank you so much to all the staff at KIND, especially Tilly.One Comment
Today, each child from Year 2 went on a stick hunt to make their very own Stick Man. After we made the stick men in our Art books, we wrote character descriptions for each one of them. Take a look at our great photos so far.One Comment

Today, Year 1 learned how to use Venn diagrams and pictograms to help us to classify different kinds of animals like mammals, reptiles, birds, fish and amphibians. We also learned about animal food chains and investigated what some carnivores, herbivores and omnivores eat!0 Comments
Here are some pictures so you can see how much fun we had when we went to the cinema to see “Sing!” last week! We had a great time on the bus and playing ring games while we waited for the cinema to open, and we remembered how to be sensible and keep safe while out and about.0 Comments
It was another great day at KIND today. We learned how to bake delicious honey cakes, learned lots about countries and capital cities around the world (including how to say hello in lots of different languages!), and found out some amazing information about bees and why they are so important! Did you know that a jar of honey could be edible for 3000 years?! We can’t wait for Day 3!0 Comments
Reception enjoyed a wonderful trip to the cinema yesterday. We walked to the bus stop and caught the bus to town (which was VERY exciting!), and talked about how we keep safe near roads on the way. At the cinema we were first to arrive, so played “The farmer’s in his den” and “Ring-a-ring-a-roses” by the Odeon until it opened! The children were all wonderfully behaved and enjoyed a few treats while watching the film “Sing!” before catching the bus back to school. We’ll be talking and writing about our fun (and environmentally-friendly!) day out on Friday!
Photos to follow soon!0 Comments
