Summer Term 1st half

Fly me to the moon



This week has been Science week and we have been very busy. We have visited different teachers and learnt about different elements of science. In our classroom we learnt how to make fizzy bottle rockets. We added bicarbonate of soda to vinegar and it inflated a balloon. Have a look at our pictures to see what happened. 


Spring Term-2nd half

Topic: Amazing Authors

This half term we are excited to be learning about the job of an author.  We will be focusing on 'amazing authors'  Julia Donaldson, Rod Campbell, Nick Butterworth and Chris Wormell before becoming authors ourselves!


SPRING TERM 2017-1st half

Topic: Rain Rain Go Away

Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a very happy new year!! We are all happy to be back at school and are ready and excited for a new term of learning!



We are using the story 'The Little Raindrop' by Joanna Gray to help us learn all about weather and the water cycle.



We started the topic by finding out about different types of weather and decorating our classroom with a sun, a rain cloud and a beautiful rainbow! We collaged the sun and cloud and made the rainbow by making paper chains.  We learned 2 new colours-indigo and violet and checked that we had the correct colours in our rainbow.

Painting rainbows and weather pictures.

We set our role play area up as a weather studio and have had great fun presenting the weather each day.  Great job presenters and camera crew! 

In PE we enjoyed rolling like a raindrop. We learned how to do a pencil roll, a tuck roll and a teddy bear roll.

We printed raindrops to help us learn about one more and one less in maths.


Topic: Christmas

We have been very busy performing our Nativity-"We're Going On A Baby Hunt", making Christmas decorations, Christmas cards and 2017 calendars.  We have even enjoyed a visit with Father Christmas!

Happy holidays everyone!

Autumn Term 2016-2nd half

Topic:  Incredible India
Wow! We are into our 2nd half term already! Thank you for supporting your child's learning at home by listening to your child read, sharing stories and completing homework. Please keep sharing your child's learning at home via Tapestry. It is lovely to see all the different things they have been getting up to over the half term holiday. 
This half term our topic focus is India! We had a very exciting delivery brought to us in our first assembly back after the half term break. Two very special cases were delivered and inside were lots of things that had come all the way from India! The children loved looking at them with Mrs Head and guessing what they could be for. We discovered everything was ready to celebrate a wedding but they didn't have anywhere to get married so Mrs Head said we could have the wedding at school! The date has been set for the 8th December so we will be busy learning all about the different traditions, food, decorations and clothes we might need to make and take!
Keep checking back to see what we are getting up to! 

We have been really busy learning all about India and are getting very excited about the wedding. Here are some of the things we have been up to...

Mehndi patterns

Terrific tiger paintings.

Indian elephant handprints

Colour mixing and finding out about Indian transport

Wow! What an amazing day we had today celebrating the end of our Incredible India topic. All of the children came to school dressed in bright colours and found the hall decorated as a beautiful wedding venue.  In assembly we listened to Mrs Head explain what happens at an Indian wedding and then we took part in some specially planned activities-we tasted the Indian food that we made last week, we took part in Indian tuk tuk races outside and even had Mehndi patterns put onto our hands.

It was a fun filled end to a fascinating learning experience.  We have been very impressed with the enthusiasm of all of the children throughout the topic. 




Autumn Term 2016-1st half

Topic: Brilliant Brains
This half term our Topic is 'Brilliant Brains'. We will use the story of Harry and the Robots as the starting point of our learning. Sadly Harry's robot is broken so we need to help Harry and create a new robot! To do this we will need to learn all about our different body parts and our senses. We will be learning how to keep healthy by tasting different healthy foods! In our maths activities we will be learning to count and recognise numbers to 10 and then 20. We will be creating and designing robots, thinking of the patterns that we would like to decorate them with. We will also learn how to programme a robot and give them directions! Keep checking back for photos of our learning, don't forget you can also see what we have been learning by logging into Tapestry, our online learning journal.
