Arrival Of Our Caterpillars

As parents and carers will already know, we have been learning about life cycles of different living things.

After learning so much about the life cycle of a caterpillar, the opportunity was finally here for the children to watch and document at first-hand the different stages a caterpillar goes through before it turns into a beautiful butterfly.

Natural History Museum.

Today we visited the Natural History Museum. We have been learning and reading about dinosaurs so it made sense to go and see some.

We were all very excited as we entered the dinosaur exhibits. Everywhere you looked there were dinosaur bones hanging or towering over us. We were not scared as it was obvious we had more muscles than they did, they were no skin and all bones. There were big, small, familiar and unusual looking dinosaurs.

Snow White Pantomime

So it was only right and proper that we took a trip down to the Harlequin theatre, to indulge ourselves in the obligatory Yuletide festive pantomime limitations.

World book day

On 7th MARCH 2019, Russell Hill celebrated World Book Day. There were some fantastic costumes, the and children and their parents were very creative.
The costumes ranged from scary dinosaurs to superheroes that saved the day, and the children were very excited to show their costumes off. The children were more than happy to let their imagination run wild and even took on the different roles, which was great fun to see. However, Felicity took the role of her costume character very seriously; she was absolutely determined to stay in character all day, which was really delightful to see.

The staff also dressed up in some crazy costumes from Minnie mouse to Oompa-Loompas. Parents looked on with amazement as the staff also stayed in character all day.

We all had a fantastic time!!!
