Isabel Iguana – Imagination

Isabel was a lovely colourful iguana. She loved being a lizard and especially enjoyed playing with her friends. Sometimes though, she would feel sad when she would go to visit them because they had lots and lots of toys to play with. At her house, Isabel didn’t have very many toys, but she often collected boxes and other things to play with. One day, Isabel and her friends were all playing together with some cars and they wanted a garage to fix some broken cars. All her friends were upset because they couldn’t carry on their game, but Isabel showed her friends how to use a cardboard box to make and pretend to have a garage. All her friends agreed that they were glad Isabel had a good imagination so they could play their game together.

World Book Day

Great fun on World Book Day today! Costumes and shelfies! The children had a brilliant day exploring favourite authors and enjoying reading. Thank you to everyone for the costumes and all the great activities organised. ☺️


Kuba Caterpillar – Concentrate

This week the children are learning about Kuba caterpillar and how concentration helps learning.
Once upon a time there were a family of caterpillars – Mummy caterpillar, Daddy caterpillar and their son, Kuba the caterpillar. One day, Mummy caterpillar asked Kuba to go out and collect some leaves for dinner. As he set off he met his friend Tom, who wanted to go and play football. But Kuba said “No, I need to collect my leaves”. A bit later, he met his cousin Casper, who asked him to go to his house for lemonade, but again, Kuba said “No, I have to collect leaves. I need to concentrate on what Mummy asked me to do”. When he had finished collecting leaves, he went home and told his Mummy what his friends had said. “Well done Kuba for concentrating on what I asked you to do, now you have finished, you can go and play!”
