The weather was kind to us for the most of the week therefore our learning was mainly based outdoors. Barbecue season is officially opened at Little Heath School. The children created an amazing barbecue site in our garden with many delicious dishes on offer.




During the week the children engaged in retelling the Three Billy Goats Gruff story. They have used the story stones to structure the story, and have created their story boards.



The Pyjama day was a lot of fun for all of us. We looked at different designs and patterns on our pyjamas, and have created our own patterns. Thank you very much for all of your kind donations.

Next Thursday we will celebrate  World Book Day. The children are welcome to dress up as their favourite book character.
