Musical Extravaganza!

At the end of the Spring term, we were lucky enough to be treated to a performance by Mr Munson’s band – ‘The West Bergholt Training Band’. Everyone loved the atmosphere and the sound of the live brass band and some of the children even had a go at conducting! We really value music at …

Royal Wedding Cakes Homework!

Badger class celebrated Harry and Meghan’s wedding by designing (and making) them a wedding cake! You will see from the creations, both on paper and in real life, that these designs were in fact a very good option. We can always hope that they see these designs and maybe request one for their first anniversary… …

Our Summer Term Topic-Food Glorious Food!

In Badger class, our topic has been quite tasty so far! We found out about seeds and growing, and the different plant parts that we can eat: the roots, stems, leaves and flowers! We pretended to be tiny bulbs with our suitcases of everything we need whilst living underground! We then grew big and tall …

A Sunny Wiggery Wood Visit!

It was lovely and sunny at the woods today and we enjoyed running and hiding among the bluebells. We also made some ‘leaf burgers’ by sawing wood and placing a leaf in between them! We decorated them with Terry’s pens and tied them with elastic bands. Here are some photographs of what we got up …

Bluebells in the Woods

The woods looked beautiful today covered in bluebells and the children enjoyed looking at them and smelling them as they explored. We also had some sticky postcards which we filled with different leaves, sticks, feathers and flowers that we could find. The children demonstrated great care today and they were careful not to stand on …

Easter at Wiggery Wood

We had great fun at Wiggery Wood last week! The Easter bunny had hidden lots of numbers around the woods for us to find. When we found them all they made a special message which led us to underneath the wheelbarrow. Under the wheelbarrow we found some chocolate eggs for us to share! We also …

Easter Disco!

Here are a selection of photographs from both the Infant disco and Junior disco!

Investigating How To Put The Fire Out!

The children went back in time to 1666 and were given the task to work together to put out the fire. One group was very successful and managed to put the ‘fire’ out quite quickly by passing the bucket of water along a line. We then used their method and made a huge line to …

World Book Day in Badger Class 2018

Here are some pictures of the fun time we had celebrating World Book Day. We enjoyed sharing our stories, writing letters, joining our characters to create new fun stories on a story map and much more!

Signs of Spring at Wiggery Wood

We saw the bluebells starting to grow at Wiggery Woods last week. We had to be really careful where we walked so that we didn’t step on any and we can’t wait to see them as they start to flower! We enjoyed exploring the woods and making use of the rope swings and ladders. Terry …

Tennis at The Essex Golf and Country Club

Here are some pictures of the Tennis Festival that some children in Year Two went to on Wednesday afternoon. They were taught skills by a friendly team of students from The Ramsey Academy who were closely supervised by Tennis coaches from The Essex Golf and Country Club.

Year Two at Wiggery Wood

Year Two children joined the fun at Wiggery Wood at the start of the Spring Term. It started with a ride on the top deck of a double decker bus-the best way to travel! We posed by the scarecrow at the start of our walk to the woods, then we went to explore the Badger …

Designing & Making Bread Rolls

As The Great Fire of London started in a bakery, we decided to make rolls! A lot of thought went into our bread roll designs. First we designed them with salt dough, squishing, rolling, twisting and turning them into the best roll shape we could think of. Then we made the real bread dough and …

Making Houses in Badgers

In Badger class, we had some fun afternoons making our Tudor houses. We had to think carefully about the features shown on houses at the time.

Music in Badgers

Badger class showed their musical talents when singing ‘London’s Burning’ in a round with FOUR groups! They also had a good time reading the musical notes and playing the traditional song on the xylophone.

Christmas Disco!

Hedgehog and Badger class had lots of fun at the Christmas disco on Monday night! There was snow, a conga and lots of very impressive dancing! Everyone had a lovely evening with their friends!
