On Friday we talked about what we want to be when we grow up. We had some special visitors in assembly who talked about their jobs. Faz is a fantastic musician, but when he was at school he was told to stop playing the violin. We heard him play and we're all glad he didn't give up! Part of having a growth mindset is never giving up, and our boys and girls are brilliant at this!
We also talked about where we like to learn best. Some of the boys and girls like learning outside, some of them like learning inside, some of them like to build, some of them like to draw and some of them like to get messy. We challenged the boys and girls to find a partner to get 'handcuffed' to for the afternoon and they then had to talk and work together to learn without breaking their paper handcuffs!
Keep it up, everyone!
Ladybirds have won the beat the bell trophy this week. Miss Haydon is really proud because Ladybirds have won a trophy in assembly for 3 weeks running!
Busy Bees also won class of the week. Well done, everyone! Keep it up!
We had a spotacular day for Children in Need! All of the boys, girls and grown ups wore spotty clothes and donated money to help Pudsey Bear to help people not as lucky as us. The children learnt about Pudsey, and talked about being kind. Everyone has helped to create a kind hands tree, made friendship bracelets, coloured or painted a Pudsey, and practised having kind hands by giving friends a massage.

This week the Reception children have been investigating the 'who pushed Humpty Dumpty?' incident. On Thursday the children came into school to be told the shocking news that somebody had pushed Humpty Dumpty off the wall. The children had the task of investigating the nursery rhyme clues to solve the mystery. We are pleased to say that Jack and Jill were apprehended and Humpty Dumpty is now recovering in bed. Well done children for super police work, drawing 'wanted' posters and writing police reports.
This week is National Nursery Rhyme Week so we have lots of exciting rhyming activities at school.

Reception children went to the school achievement assembly for the first time this week. Miss Deakin and Miss Haydon had the tricky task of choosing just one star of the week each. Ladybirds also won the 'Beat the Bell' trophy for being on time all week!
Well done to our superstars!
This week we have been learning about different autumn celebrations. We have been learning about harvest. Harvest is the celebration of the food we grow.We invited our grown-ups to celebrate Harvest with us and we performed songs and a dance for them. Well done to all the children who performed in assembly for the first time, you were all superstars! Thank you to all the grown-ups who attended the show and brought tinned food for the Harvest table. The food will be distributed by Friends of Pikes Lane to two local community charities.
Some of our staff were invited to visit a local Hindu temple, where lots of people were celebrating Diwali and New Year. The staff were given some treats to bring back to school and we shared them with the children and grown ups.
Reception went on a leaf hunt today at Queen's Park. We are learning about the changes that are taking place now that it is autumn, so we looked at the colours of the leaves and found lots of leaves, conkers and acorns on the ground. Can you remember the names of the trees that acorns and conkers come from?
We also popped over to the pond to see the ducks. We saw mallards and geese. Can you remember how we know which is the girl or boy mallard?
A special thank you to all of the grown ups that came with us!
Miss Haydon and Miss Deakin
