Today the Year 2 children enjoyed a little graduation ceremony, where we celebrated their achievements from throughout the year. Each child received a certificate unique to them, celebrating lovely positive traits, and everybody enjoyed guessing who would receive each award!
What a lovely way to end our wonderful Year together. Year 2, you are all superstars and I know you are more than ready for Year 3.
“You’re off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So get on your way!”

Year 3 Poison Dart Frogs

For Design and Technology this term the children have been busy creating Poison Dart Frog beanbags! They have all thoroughly enjoyed this project from start to finish! They designed their frogs, wrote detailed instructions about how they were going to make them, made them and then evaluated them. I have been amazed at the children’s sewing skills and the care and attention to detail they all had when making them. Ardderchog boys and girls!

Year 3 Paramedic Visit

We had a special visit today from paramedics Steff and Tash, along with their ambulance. In PSE this term we have been learning about first aid and the DR ABC method and are so lucky to have had this opportunity this afternoon. The session was so informative and the children thoroughly enjoyed having their stats read and being able to explore inside the ambulance. The children had lots of questions to ask and each of them was answered in detail. A huge thank you, I’m sure the children will remember this session for a long time!
