In Cedar class we have 6 boys and 5 girls. Our teacher is called Sophie and we are very lucky to have Jane, Marianne, Vicki and our apprentice Olivia to help and support our learning. We also have a student teacher called Dan. Laura comes into our class on a Wednesday afternoon to teach PE.
What an amazing but busy Summer term we are having! We really enjoyed our trip to Gullivers world and most of us are preparing for our last week in Millstead School. We have had an amazing afternoon at Forest School and we even went to McDonalds for a mcflurry during transition afternoons. This week we are preparing for our Leavers assembly and having lots of fun with our friends. We will be having a pool party, disco and a movie morning in class.
Here's to our last week before summer holidays!
In Cedar class we are earning our badges at Dragon Trainer Boot Camp and getting our fitness levels up to scratch in case of a dragon attack. We Worked on our defence skills and following instructions!

Each morning Cedar class use the small hall to take part in Wakey Shakey. We dance to two songs and then have a cool down song to do lots of stretches to. We are getting really good at it now and we take it in turns to lead the session and the adults dance at the back!
Big thank you to everyone who came along to see the Christmas play! The children have worked so hard and have been amazing. We are so proud of them all!
Christmas is in full swing at Millstead School! We had an amazing time at the Christmas Fayre and wanted to thank everyone who came along.

We had an awesome trip to the Cinema to see 'The Star' and have been looking at the Christmas story using characters from the movie. We also made decorations for our class tree using patterns. Don't forget the delicious biscuits we designed and made.
We are looking forward to our school Christmas dinner next week and lots of fun activities that have been planned. Remember to check back next week to see some more picture!
Thank you for your support.
Cedar Class Team
Cedar Class took a lovely autumn walk to the local park to look at a busy road and how we can keep ourselves safe when crossing. We used the pedestrian lights and waited for the green man before crossing. When we got to a road with no pedestrian lights or a zebra crossing, we had to stop, look and listen. We are all getting very good at recognising the best place to cross on a road.
