  4. 4. The ‘Bug Man’ visit to Yr R The children in reception wrote a few sentences to tell us about the bugs. Charlie-I liked the stick insect, it could sit very still and be camouflaged like a stick. Sam-The spider was hairy and it had 8 legs. David-The scorpion had claws, it tickled when I held it. Callum-The millipede walked on our carpet it had 1003 legs. Lewis-The crickets made a whistling sound, they had long antennae. Matthew-The snail came out its shell when it was wet. The ‘Bug Man’ visit to Yr 4 On Monday Mr Swales (otherwise known as The Bug Man) came along to show the children in reception and year 4 his fantastic collection of bugs. The most popular bug was probably the tarantula and everyone was very impressed with size of the snail, it was the largest one we had ever seen! Year 4 had a lovely time and were amazed when the crickets began to ‘sing’. By Megan Powderly 4CP PTA News Next meeting Thursday 27th May 3.30 Library.

  5. 5. Book Club Book Club trip to Broadhurst’s Bookshop We had a long, tiring walk to town but it was worth it for all the lovely books that we got. We went up the ancient, magical stairs to an extraordinary room that was like something out of Harry Potter. Everyone was allowed to select their own book up to the price of £6.99. We also got some free goodies from the staff including a comic, a batty bookmark and a bag. Special thanks to Gill and Marie for all the goodies and the new books for our school library. We would recommend that you go to Broadhurst’s and see it for yourselves.

Please note the green shelter by the main entrance is for staff and visitors and the blue shelters in the playground are for the children to use. Please do not allow your child to leave their scooter propped up by a wall or any of the fencing, they must be put in the blue shelter and locked with a padlock.
