Today Ruby class came into school with mad hair styles. The children enjoyed drawing self portraits and parading their hair to all of their friends during assembly.

Cinderella’s Ball

Reception celebrated the end of their theme ‘Once Upon a Time’ by taking part in a ball. Throughout the week the children made decorations and wrote invitations ready for the ball on Friday. As part of the ball the children made jam sandwiches and learnt a ballroom dance which they performed to their friends.

Sandringham Estate

Ruby Class had a wonderful time exploring Sandringham gardens, looking at all the different flowers and wildlife around the estate. Together we took part in a special workshop celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee where we were lucky enough to see lots of different presents the Queen has received from countries around the world. We even had time to explore the play park!

The Queen’s Knickers

As a class we enjoyed a Reading Cafe with our friends and family. We listened to the story ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ and did lots of different activities based around the story. We made golden crowns and wore them to our Jubilee street party.

Easter Bonnet Parade

The children in Ruby Class designed and decorated their own Easter bonnets at home with their families. Together we paraded our creations to the rest of the school.
