Today Year R had a visit from a lady called Fiona and completed some singing workshops with the children.
This is Fiona.
The children sang a song about wishes and they had to think of what they would wish for if they had a wish – there were many different types of things they wished for (bouncy castles, a horse, a transformer!)
The next song was about Jack and the Beanstalk before finishing with a rock and roll style song about the enjoyment of stories. The children had a dance to the song whilst singing it.
It was a great experience for them.
Dancing to the rock and roll song.
On the last day of the half term, the staff in Year R came into school to watch this happen!
The cherry picker went over the new building!
The crane brought the cherry picker down next to the new building.
After our trip to the New Forest Wildlife park today, we came back to school to look at the new building and what had happened while we were away.
Have a look at the building today!
The new school building is really starting to take shape now and progress is moving so quickly!! The children get so excited when they see the crane lifting in the next pod.
Many of the children in class have started to become builders, designing and planning their own structures, and even dressing up as builders to do so.
Watch out! You may have some budding builders at home!
You can really see the upper floor going in now.
New steel work is being added.
Bridge builder in the making!!
Have a look at the photo below. Year R watched the pods being placed on the school building today – the pods went in so quickly!
We are loving the crane and watch it swing the pods in!
How far will they get after 3 days?
Two days in and this is what our new school looks like!
On Monday lunchtime, Year R were lucky enough to see the start of the new building taking shape.
A giant crane was on the field and lifting the pods into place. It was great to watch!
Have a look at the photos below:
Getting the pod ready for lifting.
There it goes!
That’s the new kitchen!
