Easter fun!


We have had a fantastic start to our topic 'Pirate Adventures in Shark Infested Waters'. A friendly pirate called Captain Black Beard sent us lots of interesting objects. He sent us pirate books and toys and even a chest full of treasure! He also sent us a treasure map in a bottle which we used to find some hidden coins. 

We had lots of fun making our own treasure maps and using an 'x' to mark where to find the treasure.

Here is a picture of a floor robot called 'Beebot'. We used the controls on his back to program him to move to different features on the map. It was a bit tricky at first but we soon got the hang of if!

As part of Story Telling Week we made pirate puppets. We used brown paper envelopes and decorated them to look like imaginary pirates.  We loved looking at everyone's puppets as they are all unique  - just like us! 

We had great fun putting on a pirate puppet show. We had to practise using a pirate voice. Some of the pirates were friendly but some were very naughty and kept stealing things! The naughty pirates made us giggle.

We have have used the pirate topic as a stimulus for writing. We have written stories, descriptions of pirates and thank you letters to Captain Black Beard. We have also made some information books about sea creatures. 

This week Badger Class have been learning about Harvest.  The children have enjoyed finding out about where our food comes from and how it is harvested. The children were particularly interested in how scarecrows are used by farmers so we decided to make our own. We had a wonderful time and decided to name our scarecrow Sydney. 

The children made their own mini scarecrows. We loved looking at each other’s creations and liked that hey were all unique!

Badger Class have had a fantastic start to their year in F2. We have been busy exploring the indoor and outdoor areas and making lots of new friends. We have settled well into full time school and Mrs Burton is really proud of us all.


Who knew learning could be so much fun!


Our topic this half term is 'Traditional Stories'. We have enjoyed listening to the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel , The Gingerbread Man and and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been practising saying the stories in our own words and have taken part in a wide range of activities linked to these stories. We have particularly enjoyed  reading new versions of these traditional stories and talking about how they are the same and how they are different. We read a funny story called 'Jack and the Incredibly Meanstalk' where the giant is a friendly giant who just wants to make friends but a very grumpy meanstalk gets in his way. 

We had lots of fun building dens in our outdoor area this week. We had to work as a team and think carefully about the best materials to use. We named our creations 'Prospect Village'.
