This week, Class 3 have been busy immersing themselves in a rather daunting quest...the quest to find EDGEcalibur! We were faced with rather a tricky riddle, and after some scratching of heads, noticing that there were some shapes around the riddle and wondering what it all meant, we got busy making the 3D shape [...]

On Monday, Year 1 were very surprised to see that a beanstalk had grown in the middle of their class. To learn more about beanstalks and what we might find at the top, we read the classic story Jack and the beanstalk. The children really enjoyed listening to a tale that they had heard before [...]
