Easter Painting Workshop

Last week, Exwick Heights hosted a well attended Easter craft workshop. The weather was extremely kind so we were able to use our outdoor classroom in the nature area.

Children and their grown ups painted suncatchers and hung them from the tree near our friendship bench. They look wonderful and catch the sunlight beautifully!

Thank you everyone for coming, it was a great success. 

Year 1 are jumping mad!

This week in Year 1 we have been practising our jumps, by counting on using a number line! We thought about how important it was to count our jumps carefully and had a go at answering a range of problems, involving mermaids, unicorns, footballers and trains! In English, we have been learning a story about a lizard called Otherwise. Ask your child to re-tell it to you! Everybody looked really bright and colourful today dressed in their non-uniform for comic relief: thank you for your kind donations. We enjoyed a great ‘Danceathon’ in the hall, but didn’t quite manage 24 hours like Tess and Claudia!

We look forward to seeing you on Monday or Wednesday for the Early Years parent’s evenings
