Blending the real-world experience of taking the DLR with the celebration of Christmas, the children visited the DLR-themed Santa’s Grotto in Tower Gateway. Each child got to pick what design they wanted painting on their face, scooped reindeer food into bags and sprinkled in edible glitter, and finally got to meet Santa himself!

Tiger Class had a wonderful time visiting the Discover Children’s Story Centre at Stratford recently.
We went to the Discover – Children’s Story Centre in Stratford to use our imaginations and create a story for Hootah the alien. The children enjoyed exploring the Story World to create their own story ideas by trying on different costumes, explore different settings, and building characters through a range of activities.
We have held several workshops this half term to support parents to understand learning in the early years, these include a phonics workshop and a primary basics workshop.
BBC Children in Need at Mulberry Wood Wharf was a huge success this year raising £337 for the charity.
The children came to school wearing yellow and/or spotty clothes for Children In Need. Many children baked cakes with their families, which they brought in to compete in The Great Mulberry Wood Wharf Bake-Off. Everyone had such brilliant cakes, and we all got to enjoy them in the bake sale at the end of the day.
This term the children marked Anti-Bullying Week by learning about kindness and what makes a good friend, they also wore odd socks for the day to show that it’s ok to be different.
The theme of this year’s Anti-Bullying Week was “Reach Out,” so the children learned about friendship, acts of kindness and being kind to others. They also celebrated how we are all different and unique by wearing odd socks.
Our new building in Wood Wharf is coming along brilliantly and we can’t wait to move during the spring/summer terms. We are excited to have placed some wonderful banners on the exterior of the building to inform passers-by that Mulberry Wood Wharf will be based there.
