Tuesday 15th October

What a busy morning! We invited grown-ups into school to help us with our Autumn workshop activities. We tasted bread, printed Autumn leaves on trees, made a harvest picture and used clay to make a hedgehog. We sang our bean harvest song and then asked the grown-ups to join in. Ooh la la!







Wednesday 9th October


Today we had a visitor in school. Mrs Vibert came to tell us what it was like when she was a little girl. We found out that she liked biscuit sandwiches for supper and didn't have a television. Every afternoon at school all the children had to lie down on their own little bed and have a nap! Can you remember who calls  Mrs Vibert "Granny"?

Wednesday 17th September 

We had a special visitor in school. Ellen brought her baby, Tommy, in to meet us. Ellen told us all about him and we asked lots of questions. Some grown-ups in school remember Ellen when she was a pupil at Larklands! 





Talk to your grown-up about what you were like as a baby!
