What a fantastic morning we all had in Year One this morning. We had lots of amazing adults in the classroom to help us and they saw how well we have all settled in. It was great to show everyone what super independent learners we are. Thank you to all of those adults that came and well done to all of the children! I cannot wait to display our wonderful Mr and Mrs Potato Heads. Please look at our blog to see our hard work.
Thank you to all of the family members who joined Year 2 this morning. We had a great time creating some fantastic pieces of artwork linked to our fairy tale topic. We hope you enjoyed spending time with your child in our class and I’m sure you’ll agree they have settled into Year 2 really well. We can’t wait to display the fairy tale setting artwork in our classroom. Well done everyone!
Today Year Three have visited Wild Wood where they became cave men and women for the day! We started our day by using tree branches and leaves to create a shelter…I was very impressed by the children’s building skills so it was impossible to choose a winning shelter! The children were very excited to make and fire their very own bow and arrow made from the branch of a willow tree- just like the Stone Age people would have needed to do when hunting. It was also a lot of fun to warm ourselves up with a hot chocolate by the camp fire. We were then super detectives, foraging for food like crab apples, blackberries and nettles. We were shocked to learn that people a long time ago might have eaten nettles! In the afternoon, we learned how to make fire using flint and the whole class managed to set a piece of cotton wool on fire! Thank you for a lovely day Year Three!
Y3/1 have thoroughly enjoyed working as a team and going back in time to learn about skills needed during the Stone Age. We have collected materials to build a den, foraged for food, stripped willow and decorated it to make an arrow, tried to make a spark to create a fire and we’ve also had a go at shooting arrows.
This week in Reception we are learning about family celebrations and on Friday we are going to have a celebration party with our school family. After writing a shopping list for our party food, we then took a trip to the shop to buy the ingredients. We are now so excited to make jelly and decorate cakes tomorrow ready for our party.
We would like to say a big well done to all the children who were so sensible when walking and crossing the roads.
What a brilliant pirate day we’ve had in Reception and we even had a special pirate picnic! Thank you to all the parents who provided the children with such fantastic costumes, everybody looked amazing!
What a lovely morning we’ve had welcoming our new Year 2/1 children and their parents to our classroom. The children were introduced to our new Autumn term topic – ‘Mirror, Mirror on the Wall’. Ready for this topic, the children have created some fantastic hand held mirror self portraits, which will be displayed in our classroom in time for September. Thank you to all of the family members who were able to join us. We hope you enjoyed the morning as much as we did.
Wow! What a fantastic morning we had in Year One this morning! The children that are coming over from reception are truly amazing and myself, Miss Cope and Mrs Yeomans are so excited. Thank you to all of the adults that attended, your support is very much appreciated! So looking forward to a wonderful 2018/19!
