Today Explorers and KS1 visited Chaplin Lodge to sing our Christmas songs to the residents. We had a festive morning of fun getting to know lots of new people and sharing the Christmas spirit. The residents had a great time and have invited us to return for Easter. We cannot wait! frown

Today in Explorers we learnt how to make Scrambled Snake (jelly with strawberry laces). We had to carefully follow instructions to find out what we needed to do and work in groups to carry out each step. It was so much fun and we cannot wait to try it!! 

Children in need 2018

Thank you all for supporting children in need! You were all dressed 'Spot'-aculy. We raised over £100 from all of your kind donations, for a fantastic cause. 
Today we visited Wickford Library. We had to walk carefully and sensibly all the way there. When we got there the Library assistant read us a story and told us all about the library and the items we could borrow. We then got an opportunity to explore! There were so many books to choose from and some of us even got to take some home. no
This week in Explorers we have been learning to sequence a story. As stimulus for this we went on a Gruffalo hunt. We had to follow the story, finding each of the characters, whilst moving like the animals.

Our Superhero Day!



On Friday the 12th October, the whole school took part in a 'Big Write'. In Explorers we have been learning about a book called ' Supertato ' by Sue Hendra, linked to our superhero topic. Our mission was to write posters to catch the evil pea that had broken into the classroom and trapped the superhero veggies!!

The photographer commented that 'this class is one of the best behaved groups photographed this year'.
