Colouring competition

We would love you to colour this beautiful OBS picture drawn by Katie Frazer. This is a competition and we are hoping to pick our favourites for a display in school so take your time and try to make your colouring AMAZING-Good luck!

For those families who don't have a printer, you can either collect a copy with your report if you haven't collected it yet or we will give your child one on transition day. 

We would love to see your art work when you come into school for your transition day so please bring it with you then if it is finished.

Wellbeing Wednesday


Enjoy some Calm Me time with Mrs Cocker


Last week we tried to find out more about our families. This week we are looking at our local community and where we live. Download the worksheet below. Can you make lists for each section? Write as many ideas as you can think of. You could ask your adult to help you.

Use the worksheet below and draw or label people or buildings in your community. The picture above may help you. If you haven't got a printer, you could design your own poster. 

Watch the video clip for ideas. Can you now draw your ideal community or neighbourhood? What would you definitely have in your community?


You could also have a go at the colouring sheets and colouring in some people who work in your community.
