In reception we have been writing to our pen pals in California. They sent us some Halloween presents and we sent them lots of goodies and cards about Autumn in the UK. Just before the end of half term we received a surprise package, it was full of Valentines cards from our friends in Redlands Primary School, California! We were very pleased and we displayed their cards with our Valentines messages and pictures. We are getting ready to send an Easter package over to them.

During the last half term the Nursery children read many different traditional stories. We tried to focus on a different one each week. Throughout the topic we got to do many things including dressing up as some of the characters, role play, writing letters to the Elves and Golilocks. We made porridge, although Goldilocks didn’t eat ours! We also got to speak to some of the characters on the phone. We told the wolf that he has to be kind to the 3 little pigs!

This was a scene from one of our PE lessons where a number of children stretched themselves between two benches and passed an object around their bodies. We soon passed 100 and then 150 and then 180. Connor McLaughlin (not shown here) sailed past 200 and reached a final score of 244! We were very impressed. We interviewed Connor in assembly the next week to see what kind of lifestyle he leads; we found that he eats healthily and plays lots of sport!


Buy the Album February 8, 2010

As we move towards the end of the Dance E-jay project we’ve started to think about selling our album.      We need to make lots of money to have a party, so we decided to make a radio advert.   We listened to a few TV adverts and tried to pick out some phrases that were thought would sound good on the radio.   It was very funny especially when one of the adverts started with ‘Come on you Nutters!’

We took a selection from the tracks that we made in Dance E-jay and then recorded our own adverts over the top using Audacity.  We tried to use some of the phrases that we heard and even added.   Here are our results, which would get you to buy the album?   Remember everything you hear has been made by a nine year old!
