The site manager came over to tell us what they were doing. The excavator was very big and noisy! We played hunt the house numbers and counted in 2s.

Reception Theatre Trip (17.1.14)Posted: 22nd January 2014
Reception went to Birmingham to see The Snowman at the theatre.
When a young boy’s snowman comes to life, the two set off on a night time quest for adventure. They meet dancing penguins, reindeer and crowds of snowman friends.
The children loved the magic of the snowman coming alive and when the snowman was chased by a cat, danced with a ballerina and lifted up a reluctant penguin, carrying it off stage! Some children were so engrossed that they asked if the animals were real.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of being in the theatre and when the snow came down on them at the end, they were thrilled.
