In September, Jan and Jan came into school to talk to us about Childline and the work of the NSPCC. Year 1 and 2 thought carefully about the people we can talk to if we are feeling sad.
The Lost Sheep
In September, Graham brought in a team of puppeteers from St Saviour's Church to tell us the parable 'The Lost Sheep'. The team have spent this summer working with children and families from Bamber Bridge, using their puppets to get their messages across.
Year 1 loved the puppet show and thought carefully about how God loves everybody.
Walk around Bamber Bridge
Today the children enjoyed a lovely walk around Bamber Bridge as part of our current Geography topic of 'Around my School Locality'. The children walked sensibly with a partner and stopped at points of interest along the route to discuss the features of Bamber Bridge in small groups. They used their senses to spot interesting things such as a Postman delivering his letters, different types of vehicles and the weather.
When we were observing the train station we were luckily enough to see a train pass by. It was very exciting to see the lights flash and the barriers come down. The conductor even gave us a big wave!

During Enterprise Week each class had to pitch a charity to the rest of the school and explain why they should get the money we raised. Year 2 spoke about Dogs Trust and they did a great job as the majority of the school voted for them. Today a lady from the charity visited us in school with one of her rescue dogs, Danny.
Earlier this week Year 1 visited Blackpool Zoo as part of their Science topic all about animals. We saw lots of interesting animals. The children helped the adult leading their group to read the map of the zoo to find the different animal enclosures.
The children also participated in a workshop all about minibeasts. They listened carefully to the zookeepers and went on a minibeast hunt. The children worked together in small groups to find and identify different types of minibeast.
We enjoyed the lovely Spring sun and the children behaved wonderfully. Later in the week they wrote a recount of our visit and made a beautiful book.
This afternoon was very exciting for the children in Year 1 as we had a visit from a real-life vet. Mrs Hargreaves, one of our school governors, kindly came into class to talk to the children about her role as a vet and answered lots of their questions.
