  • Create a collage of the wonderful activities you have been doing
  • Create a poster on how you are keeping safe during this time
  • Create a story map of a traditional tale - We started looking at Little Red Riding Hood, why not look at a new tale
  • Create a story or animation - this can be about the children's favourite story or a story that the children create

Let’s take a learning adventure with our body and mind, discover senses and tenses and even polar adventures.

Detective work will solve the differences between toys, old and new. Don’t forget about dressing up and acting in role too.

Throughout the seasons become confident with your numbers, be a mathematician or poet, they all walk among us!

So get ready, Line up, your year awaits! We’ll be right here, waiting at the gates.


A few things to remember:


There will be a spelling test every week.

Experimenting with Clay


Using the textile - Clay


In English we have been looking at the story - Stick Man. In art we decided to use clay to create our own Stick Man. The children used a variety of techniques to sculpt their Stick Man Model. It was a very messy job!



Maths Experiments


In maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D Shapes. We conducted experiments on the different qualities of the shapes and whether the shape will roll or not roll

We have been looking at a story called "Beegu". Beegu is all about an alien that falls to earth, shes all alone and she can't talk or communicate with other people. The adults that she meets are unkind and do not help her. When Beegu comes across a school the children are kind and let her play - Beegu finally feels happy, unfortunately an adult comes along and sends Beegu away! Poor Beegu is all alone again! However unknown to Beegu there is a bright light and there flying down is Beegu's Parents! She goes home with her parents - telling them that not everyone is kind on earth but the children are! 


The children created their own Beegu world following their own imagination and predictions from the story.

Autumn Walk


Today we went on a Autumn Walk around our school. We explored the changes in our school environment, noticing how the trees where changing colour and some leaves had fallen from the trees. We noticed how the grass was getting water logged and muddy. We noticed that there were less flowers around our field. We were also lucky to find pine cones!

Children In Need

Children In Need 1
Today we celebrated Children In Need, by dressing up in our own clothes and bringing in a £1 donation for the Charity. We had lots of fun creating our own Pudsey Bears and our own Pudsey Eye Patches!



We are very lucky, a Yoga Teacher has been coming into school to teach the children Yoga. The children are enjoying it so much! This adds to the Yoga time that we do every afternoon after Lunch time.

We are Scientists!!


Over the last few weeks we have been conducting a science experiment. We were investigating to see how much rain fell over a period of two weeks. We made our own rain gauge, placed them into a suitable area to collect the water and waited to see what happens. Over the two weeks the gauge's collected 11cm and 12cm of water! Amazing! We can't wait to start our next investigation.

In Science we have been looking at "Our Bodies". We have been exploring our senses, how our bodies work and how to keep ourselves fit and healthy. The children have been conducting smell and taste experiments, hearing, touch and looking challenges. For part of our healthy body lesson, the children made healthy versions of Pizza, using a wrap for a base, sauce and cheese. The children have enjoyed being scientists. Below are some photos of the experiments...

First Few Weeks...


The children have made a brilliant start to the first few weeks of the school year. The children have been experiencing new subjects such as Spanish, History and have been exploring mindfulness through Cosmic Kids Yoga.


In Spanish the children have been learning the song "Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"! They are very quick learners so why not ask them to sing it to you!


The children have been busy during English and Maths and have been introduced to some new maths equipment which they are very excited to use and experiment with.


We have had a brilliant first few weeks and we cannot wait to see how the children develop over the next few months!
