What a fabulous evening we had when the children came back for bedtime story. Zoe did us proud, lighting the campfire and hanging fairy lights all around. Emily on violin and Poppy on guitar led our singing accompanied by Chris. Followed by hot chocolate and stories in our pjs. Thanks to all who helped.
What a Drumtastic Afternoon!
17 May 2019
A huge thank you to Suzie for coming into Amber Class this afternoon. We have had a fantastic time being introduced to our up coming drumming lessons. We learnt about sound waves and how we have to let the sound escape out of the bottom of our drums. We have already learnt a short piece of music that we will be building on over the next few weeks.

As part of our topic and science lessons we will be growing lots of interesting plants. We started today by growing beans in clear bags. Keep an eye on them over the next few weeks to see what happens.
A Fantastic Mr Fox Role Play Day
03 April 2019
Amber Class love to roleplay. We had a fantastic afternoon planning, practicing, preforming and watching our mini Fantastic Mr Fox productions. Here are some lovely photos from our hard work. This role play helped us to think about each character and interpret their personality traits.
Keeping Maths Active and fun —Maths of the day!
26 March 2019
Today we combined our 2 favourite things, running around and maths. We completed a measuring shuttle race. This involved two very important skills, being fast yet still managing to stay calm and accurate. Amber Class did a fantastic job at both. We remembered to start at 0, hold object as still as possible and study the ruler carefully for whole numbers and even some fractions.

What a lovely day to make summer drinks....and to learn how to measure volume
22 March 2019
Farmer Bean (from Fantastic Mr Fox) told us that he only likes to drink cider. Amber Class decided to make some recipes to show Farmer Bean how many other lovely drinks there are to try. We had to plan a recipe that came to 200ml. We then mixed our juices using measuring jugs. We had a lovely afternoon making and sipping drinks, chatting with our friends and enjoying the sunshine.

Amber Class go on a Children in Need Ramble
20 November 2018
Last week, Amber Class ventured to Stratford Park to see the glorious colours of autumn. They stomped through tunnels, clambered over tree stumps and rolled down grassy fields. It reminded us all of how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place with free fun right on our doorstep!
