Welly Day

In the morning the boys started by getting their hands messy. They created mud faces on the trees and named their finished characters! 🙂

Mrs Curran presented our ‘Little LEO’ Jack with the book ‘Marlie’s Tangled Tale’. We read the book in Class and it highlights the issue of plastic rubbish. They boys are very aware of recycling and plastic waste and are conscious that they dispose of their rubbish correctly.

The boys created a spider out of items they found in nature including, sticks, leaves and pine cones.

 

 

The boys enjoyed eating toasted marshmallows and bananas which were cooked on the fire pit.

In the afternoon the boys took part in the matchbox challenge. They had to collect as many different things as they could find and put them in their box!

Times Tables Challenge!

Dear boys

We have a new Maths Challenge for you.  During the last week of term Mr Pontin, Head of Maths, will be testing boys who confidently know their times tables up to, and including, 12×12.  He will ask the boys a mixture of questions to test their confidence and knowledge.  All boys who can successfully answer all the questions will receive a special times tables badge.

 

Good luck!

Little LEOs meet Big LEOs

Today the Little LEOs went to meet the Big LEOs.

The boys were very excited but beautifully behaved, showing curiosity, collaboration, initiative, focus and a super amount of knowledge and understanding about the environment. They were able to see their tomato plants growing bigger and share the things they brought along, the other LEOs who were suitably impressed! They did us all proud.

Thank you also to Mrs Aldridge for coming along to assist and meet the team.

Pebbles

Please could each boy bring a pebble into school next week for an art project on Wednesday.

The pebble needs to be roughly 6cm x5cm and smooth.

Many thanks
