    Wow! What a busy term! We launched our new topic about habitats by creating a new area for our class guinea pigs Sharky, Pip and Pop! 

    We have learnt lots about many habitats including woodland, rainforest and polar regions.

    Here are a few photos to give you a peek at what we’ve been doing!

  • Science week

    Published 19/03/22, by Sarah Mellor

    What a week of science! We’ve done a daily ‘awe and wonder’ science experiment to celebrate science week. For each experiment we made predictions, tested them out and discussed what had happened after.  There was so much scientific language being used - you’d be so proud parents. 

    On Friday we were visited by the British Geological Survey, who treated us to a talk about volcanoes, different types of rocks and fossils. They even let us do some fossil rubbings, and set us up with a rock growing experiment. We’ll keep you posted on that one.

  • A Busy Last Week!

    Published 11/02/22, by Helen Ingle

    We’ve had an exciting and busy final week before the Half Term break. 

    We have celebrated Chinese New Year, got to know our lovely new chicks as well as doing some great Welly Wednesday measuring!

    We also said a sad farewell to the lovely Miss Royal as we enjoyed her last delicious school dinner. 

    One final message! There will be a Reading at Crossdale meeting for all Reception parents and carers taking place on Tuesday 1st March at 5.30 pm in the school hall.  This will be a chance to find out more about how your child is learning to read at Crossdale as well as having the chance to ask any questions you may have.
