The Enormous Carrot.

Tagan brought an enormous carrot to school today for her news.

We were all amazed at the size of it.
When we took a photo we put a ruler on the floor next to it. It is almost as long as the ruler!!

Tagan answered the children's questions about it.

A Special Surprise.

On Friday Tracey came to our class with a surprise parcel!
It was addresssed to Jemma and Room 1 at Broadlands School.
We filmed Jemma opening it.
It was from Harold the Giraffe at the Life Education Trust.
Jemma and Maggie had written him a letter saying how much we enjoyed his visit to our school.

Inside there was a letter to us all, a special Harold toy and some stickers for Jemma
and 2 boxes of Harold plasters and 2 sheets of stickers for the class.
We all felt very special.

Zu Zu Land

At Broadlands School we use our virtues every day.
At Lunchtime on Friday, Maggie, Jemma, Thomas, Daniel and Cody worked together - Cooperation - to make a unique land for their ZuZu pets.
They showed great  Creativity!
They called it "ZuZuLand".


The children explain what they did in this video clip.
