Pre-Prep Notice Board


 A Peek at our Week…

Nursery have continued with their Nursery Rhymes theme and learnt Humpty Dumpty – they made their own Humpty Dumpty and tried to think of answers to the question ‘why oh why did humpty fall?’ We also had to go on a hunt around the Pre-Prep for pieces of Humpty Dumpty and then work out how to put him back together.

Nursery and Reception together had a fantastic Welly Wednesday, where they pretended to be woodland kings & queens and made leaf crowns. On the leaf hunt, the children were surprised to see a fox, two pheasants, two rabbits and a pigeon!

Reception were visited by Paul the Postman. He talked to the children about the different types of letters and parcels he delivers. Later on in the week they wrote their own letters to their families and Mrs Wijnen helped the children post them.

Year 1 had their annual trip to Hedingham Castle, where they met ‘real life’ (according to the children!) people from the olden days! They have followed up their wonderful day by writing accounts and designing/painting real wooden shields made from wood out of the OBH grounds.

Year 2 children have been working exceptionally hard on shapes and geometry this week, and introduced lots of new mathematical words into their vocabulary. They also headed out to the outdoor classroom to recount the events of the Great fire of London. The children participated in retelling the events while Mr Drake safely set light to their Tudor buildings!
Macmillan Coffee Afternoon
Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the Macmillan coffee afternoon today. The stalls, run by the Year 2 children, looked wonderful and the cake stall was overflowing with deliciousness – thank you to all who contributed.



Upcoming events:

Harvest Festival
Friday 6th October, 2.30pm
Our annual Harvest Festival takes place next Friday at Brettenham Church. You are all invited to join us for the service. The children will all be taking part and have prepared some lovely performances and songs. We will dismiss the children after the service, but as it is an IN weekend with normal OWLS, there will be transport back to school. If you would like your child to return to school with us, please let your class teacher know. We are collecting donations for the Harvest procession again this year, which will then be donated to the West Road and Westley Community Food Bank. The Food Bank is currently collecting tinned food, dried food, food in jars, UHT milk, tea bags, cereal packets, biscuits, crisps and toiletries.
