Phew – it’s been emotional…!

We had a wonderful day at Mersea Beach for our last day of term – thank you to Mersea Island Lions Club for letting us use your hut again. The weather held and we made sandcastles (and sand mermaids, sand ladybirds, sand stag beetles and sand boats!) paddled, wrote in the sand, had picnics and much much more!

It was an lovely way to end a packed term: here are a few of our highlights, including:

Father’s Day,


finding a stag beetle,


our Ladybird Trail which raised £52.73

and Lady Sam’s Birthday!

We even managed to do some learning too!

Our seaside theme has run throughout the term with lighthouses, starfish, rockpools, Rainbow fish, water (lots of water!) and sand dough.

We had a visit from Amy the Dental Nurse who brought in her baby dinosaur and giant dog to teach us about looking after our teeth and healthy snacks.

And Kayleigh, who we have been lucky to have with us this term, has just graduated with a BA(Hons) in Education Studies and Special and Inclusive Needs. Congratulations Kayleigh and good luck in your PGCE!19959227_1387164508063660_8766722919966299104_n

We say goodbye and good luck to everyone going to Big School, we will miss you very much – including Amy, who has inspired and taught us so much this year

We hope everyone has a wonderful, safe summer and look forward to seeing you back on 7th September.
