Pirates Love Underpants!


Gethin was very kind at Military Kids Club this week, he brought in an audio story to share with the group. Gethin's dad is away at sea and has narrated one of Gethin's favourite books for him called Pirates love Underpants. We all enjoyed listening to Gethin's dad telling the story. We then designed our own underpants....take a look!smiley

Friendship Flower


Take a look at our fantastic friendship flower we created. We each designed our own flower petal and then placed them together to make an amazing flower. All of our designs are all different and unique just as we all are, but we fit together beautifully!

National Popcorn Day

We had a very exciting afternoon at Military Kids Club today....we got to taste test different popcorn flavours and decided which was our favourite! We learnt that popcorn was discovered hundreds of years ago and that there are three different types of corn.


 Family Tree


At Military Kids Club this week, we looked at designing our very own family trees. We added all of the important people who are in our families onto leaves and drew their pictures and talked about why they are important to us all. Take a look at our fantastic trees!

Remembrance activities


We have been looking at poppies and why we wear them for remembrance. We talked about how it is important to show respect and to always remember the brave people in the armed forces who have fought in battles to help to keep us and our country safe. We made our own poppies from paper plates and we went outside in the garden area to put our wreath on the wall. Gethin was very brave and said a prayer which he wrote himself: "Dear God, thank you for all the soldiers you gave us and the poppies we wear to remember the soldiers, Amen".



Foundation Military lunchtime.

This week the children from foundation who have a relative in the military, enjoyed their first lunch meeting together along with Mrs Hamlyn. They enjoyed talking to each other about their families and made new friends!smiley

Military Lunchtime


Every Wednesday all military children in the school can have their lunch together along with Mrs Hamlyn and Mrs Madge if they wish to do so. This is a great opportunity for the children to get to know each other better and to share their stories about their relative who is in the services.

Visit from Warrant Officer Hamlyn

As part of Armed Forces Week, we have been very lucky to have Warrant Office Hamlyn in school . He talked to everyone during whole school worship to discuss what it's like to be in the armed forces. We learnt that some families can spent lots of time apart when their loved ones are deployed. WO Hamlyn then worked with each class and he even taught us all to march! Take a look at our photos smiley
