Welcome to your first year at Newlands Primary School!
We have 2 classes in Year R - Ladybirds with Miss McCollin and Butterflies with Miss Tucker & Mrs Rawlings.
Year R had a busy day on their visit to Longdown Farm this week. We had lots of jobs to do - feed the goats, collect the eggs, feed the pigs, look after the baby chicks. We also had a very bumpy ride on a tractor!
Year R have been learning the story of Handa's Surprise. We used a story map to help us re-tell the story in the correct order. On Friday, visitors from the Story Tree came to help us act out the story. We turned our bodies into the shape of the different fruits and animals in the book. We remembered lots of the story events and had great fun acting it out in the hall!
Bears, Bears, Everywhere!
Teddy Bear Hospital
Children brought their poorly teddies to school today to visit the Teddy Bear Hospital! We helped the doctors to check our teddies over and find out what the problem was. We learned how to stay healthy by eating the right foods and brushing our teeth, and how to stay safe at home. The doctors prescribed lots of fruit and vegetables, an early night and lots of cuddles to make our teddies feel better! In the afternoon we enjoyed a teddy bear picnic in the woods to cheer our teddies up!
