Welcome to Our Website!



We are really enjoying our Topic Bright Lights Big City. We have been writing our own short stories based on Steve Antony's Queen strories. 

We thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day today. We all brought in a story prop and we had to guess the story that the prop was from!

Today, we have a visit from Lynne Chapman. We LOVE reading Lynne Chapman books. Some of our favourite books are, Giddy Goat, Class One Visits the Farm and Mr Strongmouse. We enjoyed listening to her read Class Two goes to the Zoo. We also enjoyed watching her draw some illustrations. She  showed us how to draw our own bears too.

Thank you Lynne Chapman!

In Design and Technology we have finished making our moving pictures. We designed our moving pictures to be of an animal that might fly, swim, slither or walk. We carefully designed our background to be the habitat where the animals lives. We also added a leaver to the pictures where we decided to hide the animal's food. 

We enjoyed our last Forest School session today. We learnt how to whittle wood. 

The children love  taking care of the birds and animals and all wanted to make more feeders using left over pears and bird seed. We noticed the birds singing in the trees and the plants shooting through the forest floor. 

This week in History we have been learning about the legend of Robin Hood. In our extended writing lesson, we created newspaper reports to tell people that Robin Hood and his Merry Men have been taking from the rich and giving to the poor!

In Science we are continuing to learn about the different animals groups.  During Science we worked with our partner to sort the pictures of animals into mammals and reptiles. We also had to tell our partner what the key characteristics of mammals and reptiles are.  We know that mammals have fur or hair and they are warm blooded. We know that a reptile’s body is covered in scales. 

We enjoyed making bird feeders in Forest School this week. 

In Art this week have continued to explore printing. Today, we used plasticine and paint to print. We used objects such as buttons, Lego and pasta to see what interesting patterns and shapes they made. 

Here are our finished Maasai tribe necklaces. We had so much fun making them.

This week in Forest School we learnt facts about Squirrels. We learnt that a squirrel makes a drey. We saw a squirrel climbing the trees and so we thought we should make a drey for the squirrel. We worked in groups to collect sticks and leaves.  

Today in Computing we designed Kenyan flags on the Computers. It was tricky but we persevered!

Today we have started to make Maasai tribe necklaces. We used watercolour paints to create our own tribal patterns. We learnt that the Maasai tribe live a traditional life in Kenya. 

Today marks the start of international week. We are learning about the culture of Kenya. We started by learning an African dance. It was quite tricky but we tried our best. We had so much fun! 

It’s a new year and what a brilliant start to 2023 we have had. This half term we go to forest school on Thursday afternoons. We have had our first session where we learnt the fire safety rules. We played forest hide and seek and we made hazard sticks. We can’t wait for our next session. 

It has been our party day today. We enjoyed playing games in the hall and making Christmas crafts. Merry Christmas everyone!

We have been busy making Christmas crafts. 

Our two Owls have won first and second prize in the Christmas bauble competition. Well done everyone who entered. 

Today has been Christmas dinner day. 

Today has been Christmas jumper day, take a look at some of our pictures. 

In maths, we have practised our number place value vocabulary. We have been playing number line games. Our favourite game is Squeeze. We have to guess our partner’s number by asking questions. Questions such as, is it greater than ten? Is the number smaller than fourteen? 

We have been reading Paddington Bear stories. Below are some examples of our writing about Paddington. 

We have been inspired by the work of the artist, Acrimboldo. We designed and created fruit faces. We practised cutting the fruit too. Look at our fruit faces. 

We have been learning the place value of 2 digit numbers. We practically partitioned numbers using tens and ones. 

In Science we have been exploring Autumn. Today we used our observational skills by drawing one half of a leaf. We have learnt that the deciduous trees loose their leaves in Autumn. 

We have started our new art topic called Spirals. We have been exploring using our bodies to make large scale spiral drawings. We had lots of fun. 

This week in Maths we have had lots of fun exploring the properties of 3D and 2D shapes. We played a game where our partner had to close their eyes and we had to put a shape into their hand and they had to guess the shape. We have also sorted 2D and 3D shapes into groups. 

We have completed our first Computing topic. We have been learning this half term all about online safety.  We have also been exploring Purple Mash. In our last sessions we created our own pictograms. We also practised inserting pictures from clipart onto a document and writing captions for each picture. 

This week in our Maths wonder time we had to see how many ways we could make 8. We did this practically with cubes and a part whole model. We then wrote down the number sentences. Some of us achieved the challenge of writing subtractions too. 

This week in Mini Kixx we played over arm throwing games. We had a ball, beanbag and a tennis ball. We had targets that we had to try and aim at. 

We are winners of attendance this week so this afternoon we enjoyed a chocolate treat from the special treat basket whilst watching The Rat Thief by Julia Donaldson. 

Today in Science we had to predict what was in each pot using our sense of smell. We recorded our predictions. We found out that in pot one it was chocolate. Inside pot two was vinegar. Inside pot three was mint and inside pot four was bread. 

This group of Owls have been working hard practising their number place value to ten. They have been using tens frames and numberlines to find one more of a given number. 

Today has been our second session of Mini Kixx. We had a great time learning how to throw, catch and balance beanbags. 

We have been busy making Owls. We used paint to decorate. We cut out the eyes, wings and beak for the owl. 

We enjoyed our first Mini Kixx session. We had lots of fun practising our throwing and catching skills. We also had a challenge to see how far we could jump and how far we could run!

We enjoyed our first Computing lesson today. We learnt how to switch on and switch off the laptops safely. 

We are enjoying our new classroom.
