We try very hard to achieve our next steps during this time. We also do carpet sessions of Phonics,
Maths, Topic and PATHS (Promoting Alternative THinking Strategies). Throughout the week we also do smalle group sessions and challenge tasks with the Teacher.
P.E We do P.E on a Monday afternoon. Please bring in your child’s kit on a Monday and leave it. Next half

We are currently learning about 'People Who Help Us'. We have had lots of visitors and looked at different professions. The children have been really interested in babies and who helps them. We followed their interest and had a Midwife visit along with a 'baby clinic' role play which links with our Maths 'measuring'.
We looked at the other end of the scale and discussed how the elderly need some help too and thought about who might help them. The children thought about ways that they could help. They suggested that reading stories to them might make them feel happy. So we did just that!
Some children held back to begin with and did their own colouring, reading or playdough. Others however jumped straight in confidently talking to and playing with their new friends! We met Peggy, Alan, Edith and Bernard along with many more. They all have lovely pictures to put on their walls in their rooms made by the children! By the end of the session the children didn't want to leave and they had made themselves at home in the kitchen, having drinks! The staff commented on how animated and chatty a few of their residents (that usually are not) were by having the children around.
What a wonderful, heart warming trip. Perhaps we could make it a regular thing! 💕
What a lovely day and a first ever trip for Rainbow Fish. They were all superstars! 🌟
We left a chilly but sunny Gayton and enjoyed a (very noisy) coach ride to Hunstanton. When we got there it was pouring with rain/hail with VERY strong winds! We battled along the seafront to get to the Sealife Centre. We found it rather funny! 😂
We then had a rock pool experience where we met a starfish called Patrick and a crab. We all had chance to touch the starfish first. Tilly said that it felt 'rough like a rock', Bella said it was 'bumpy' and Lennie thought it was 'a bit soft'. We learned that they have 5 eyes! Daisy recognised the mussel shell and said that is what they eat. We found out that starfish can grow new tummies and Dylan knew that they can grow new legs!
When we met the crab we learnt how to hold it properly so it didn't nip and so we didn't harm him. We knew it was a boy crab because he had a triangle shape on the bottom. The girls have a horseshoe shape and are left in the sea to reproduce.
We then had chance to explore the other sea creatures. We worked hard to work out the quiz and all received a badge. 😊
We enjoyed some lunch then bought a little souvenir from the gift shop, learning about coins. We walked back to the coach. The trip back was much quieter! Some even fell asleep 💤.
When we got back to School we had a run through of our Christmas play then we chilled out in our classroom with a film for the last few minutes as a treat for being so fantastic on our trip. Thank you Rainbow Fish. It was a pleasure.
