Dr Seuss drawing competition!

As part of our book week at MHP we are entering a drawing competition to try and win a prize. We drew our favourite Dr Seuss character - first on our mini whiteboards and then on paper. We coloured them in and they will be judged by Mrs Jackways in the library. The winner will be announced at assembly on Friday! Fingers crossed it is one of LZ7's amazing artists!!

Squash fun!

This week at MHP all the Learning Zones got to try some basic squash skills as part of our Physical Education. We had to balance balls on racquets and dribble balls along the floor. We had turns in a relay and it was lots of fun!


This week is book week at MHP and we are celebrating Dr Seuss' birthday by reading lots of his wonderful stories. Today we had a look at this cool website called Seussville which has lots of activities and games to play. We can explore it at school and at home! To go to the website just click on the picture above.

Orange and banana taste testing stories!

As part of our learning context "From Field to Table" we are looking at and tasting different types of food. Today we cut up oranges and bananas to look at closely with the magnifying glass and then eat. We brainstormed lots of words to describe them and tried to use some in our stories! The pictures we drew and painted with water colour pencils which we liked.

Some of our latest displays of learning!

We are really proud of all the work we have on display in our learning zone (especially as we have only been at school 12 days!) We have made t-shirts, bubble trouble stories, holiday recounts and bio poems and they are all up on the wall so everyone can come and see them! Next week we will show you our finished self this space!

The 3 Billy Goats Gruff!

Today the Mighty Mice reading group performed a play in front of the whole studio called 'The 3 Billy Goats Gruff". They did a fantastic job getting into their characters and reading with expression (especially Troy the troll!) and all the children watching really enjoyed it! Well done to Troy, Risha, Frances and Melinda for working hard with Mrs Hood to make their play such a success!
