The Frog Prince

In January The Hobgoblin Theatre Company visited our school to perform ‘The Frog Prince’. Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 were lucky enough to watch the performance and take part in a drama workshop afterwards.

The children really enjoyed the performance and they were extremely keen to participate in the workshop! The children had lots to say about the performance afterwards:

“I liked the part when the princess couldn’t remember the magic word and she thought it was potatoes!”

“I liked it when the frog turned into the Prince because it was crazy and magical”

“I liked the bit when the frog was eating the food and it disappeared and he threw the plate on the floor”


Our Year 1 scientists!!!

This week children have been working scientifically using their amazing science skills. After learning all about our bodies’ senses and discovering that our whole body helps us with our sense of touch, children wanted to investigate which part of our bodies are best for touching.


They decided to try to guess which object was in my box, first with th

eir feet and then by feeling with their hands.

We had lots of different predictions but all found that our hands were the best part of our bodies to feel with. Here are some of our pictures from the experiment.



Phonics support

A big thank you to all of the parents that managed to come to our ‘meet the teacher’ event earlier this week.

As I mentioned, Year 1 has a major focus on phonics. Your support and help will have a huge impact on your child’s progress this year so please practise at home and read every day.


Here is a  great site to help with the pronunciation of each sound

Here is a site that will give you some more information on the phonics programme we use at St Anne’s;
