Many thanks to Max who kindly gave us the idea of choosing this lovely book as our topic this week. We had great fun re-enacting the story using dressing up props – especially funny were the BIG size 10 shoes on such tiny feet and there were also many laughs when the giant’s trousers fell […]
Wednesday 9th September was our first Forest School session. We walked down the Lane over the road from the Hall-there was lots to see – the leaves on the trees were green and brown-we talked about the leaves dying off in Autumn time, so please keep an eye out for this!

We made telescopes and the children looked through them to find triangle shapes […]
