Our First Christmas School Lunch

Wrens experienced their first school Christmas lunch today, wearing their fabulous Christmas jumpers.

They were certainly dressed for the occasion, as they also made lovely Christmas crowns to wear too.


Their first Christmas lunch was made by these lovely ladies.

Who also dressed for the occasion!

Autumn Time in Wrens

We absolutely love this season, as there is just so much you can do at this time of year outside and inside. We got busy using all of the lovely leaves that had fallen from the trees.

We made leaf crowns to wear for our autumn sing-song.

We created autumn place mats, clay leaves and tea lights.

We also stuck with the autumn theme for our biscuits. Here are our squirrel and leaf biscuits. Yum, Yum!

We learnt some new autumn songs, which we confidently sang in front of all our parents and carers.

We then worked with our parents and carers at some autumn activities.

We held a scarecrow competition with a twist. They all had to be linked to a book character. Take a look at the entries…

The winners were chosen by Mr Wirth (The Headteacher) and Mrs Bower (The Literacy Co-ordinator)

George Pig – from Peppa Pig & The Witch –  from Room on the Broom

Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs were blown away with our amazing hard work and effort. Bring on the next season!

A first for something else………. P.E day!

Our first P.E lesson was finally here.


We warmed our bodies up first by playing the Bean Game’.

We then talked about space and spatial awareness. Then played ‘Rabbits and Burrows’.

We then used hoops and pretended that these were cars. We had to listen to instructions given and then carry these out. For example, Mrs Marriott said, ’roundabouts’ and we had to sit and spin in our cars.

We then continued to work on our listening skills, and played ‘Teacups and Saucers’.

We then worked in our teams, and did a little bit of running.

Mrs Marriott was so pleased with how quick we got ready for PE.



Road Testing our Wellies

We have had great weather lately, so we decided to road test our wellies.

We went looking for autumn leaves for some craft activities.

Team wellie photo!



Food glorious food….

We were invited to sample some of the hot school lunch options today.

Curry and rice went down a storm!

After a discussion with the children, they thought that they would choose some of these for their lunch.

A big thank you to the cooks for the lovely invite.




Number Hunt Time

We went exploring our new school to find numbers. We obviously dressed for the occasion!

We found lots of numbers outside too!

We then ordered number cards 0- 20.

You can have your very own number hunt at home too!



Our First ‘BIG SCHOOL’ Lunch!

We went in the big hall for school lunch.

We even carried our own trays.

We were amazing!

Because everyday should feel like a day at the BEACH!

Wrens dreamed up stalls/activities for their ‘Beside the Seaside’ event.

All set up ready for our Parents/Carers and siblings to enjoy.

We greeted our visitors with some seaside songs first, wearing our funky designer sunglasses.

Well the weather was just perfect for the day too. The ice cream stall was obviously very busy.



Happiness is a day at the BEACH!

Well we ticked off two of our 50 things before we had even arrived at the beach.

We travelled on a coach.

We travelled on a train.

We arrived at the beach eager to eat our packed lunches.

Then it was time to have some fun on the beach. We made sand sculptures, went beach combing, made sand castles and played bat and ball.

Then just before it was time to leave, we went for a paddle.

We had a brilliant day, and the weather was very kind to us.


Sizzler of a Sports Day!

The day had finally arrived! The sun was indeed shining on Greenlands sports day 2019.

We kicked off we our mini-potted sports, which had been given a new look, and a few new additions.

The new water potted sports went down a storm. Just take a look at some of the children in action.

We then moved to our competitive sports, which after weeks of measuring and more measuring of the track, worked out well!

Our spectators enjoyed their refreshments of bacon baps, and tea and coffee.

Mr Parry organised some  toddler races, and we finished off with a parents tug of war. The parents were really keen to get involved, and it brought our brilliant sports day to an end.


The whole event was very well supported by our wonderful families, and Liam Kay and his sports leaders from Dinnington Comprehensive.

The winners of sports day 2019 was Beech (Yellow)

A big well done to them and all the children that took part.
