We had an eventful week at school. To kick off the week, we had a PE day where the children had the opportunity to try out various new games. The Year 5 class also came to support the Starlings. It was a lot of fun!
On Friday, we had our class assembly. Over the past two weeks, we have been working diligently to assemble our performance and write our story, 'The Caterpillar Shoes.' We genuinely hope that you enjoyed it.
I hope you all had a lovely half term. This term, we are continuing with our topic of 'Word changes'. However, we are focusing on animals and the life cycle of butterflies. We can't wait to tell you all about it in our class assembly next week.
It was so lovely to see everyone's projects this week and hear all about how you made your project and why you decided what place to make. They were all fabulous and I can see how hard you all worked on them.
I hope you all have a lovely half term and a well deserved rest.
This week we have had some very exciting visitors. On Tuesday we had some Firefighters come and teach us all about fire safety. The children had a lovely afternoon and even got to try on their uniform.
This week we have started a new topic in maths. Year one have now moved onto adding and subtracting and year two, multiplication and division. So far the children are loving this new topic and working so hard.
This week we have continued with our topic 'World changes through history'. In art we have been exploring expressive painting and the children have made some glorious paintings. In topic we have been learning all about key women in medicine. These women have included; Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, Rosalind Franklin and Dr Sarah Gilbert.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
This week we have started our new topic 'Our world changing through history'. To start our topic we have been learning about rainforest animals and how they are classified along with influential female nurses and doctors. We have even begun to explore with different instruments to replicate dinosaur noises. In Maths we have started learning about money and in English we have been looking at the book 'Dear Earth'. For the next few weeks we will be focused on writing a letter to the earth.
This week we preformed our Christmas play. It was fantastic and am so proud of you all!
We have had such a fun week packed with lots of Christmas activities. We made decorations for the classroom, we made Christmas cards for our family and some to send to a local Care Home, Bromson Hill. Santa even came to visit us in class!
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
This week we had did our Rhino fundraiser. Thank you to everyone who made a poster and bought something from our tuck shop. All money has been donated to help the rhinos.

This week the Christmas play practice is in full swing. We have also decorated and put up our decorations on the school tree on the school playground. We hope you like them!
This week we have decided that we would like to help save the rhinos. Starling class have come up with the idea to hold a 'Save the rhinos' tuck shop where all the money made will go towards saving the rhinos (this has been recorded in the children's JASS books).
This week in maths we have moved onto shape. We have been exploring the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and experimenting to make our own shapes. In our other curriculum areas we have continued our research into rhinos. This week we have found out some very sad facts about rhinos so we made our own fact files to educate others and share our research in the aim to help protect them.
This week we have continued our research on animals and have drawn animal skin and have made some lovely pictures, they are hung up on our display. We also did our first set of PUMAS this week and have got some fabulous results. Well done everyone!
We are also starting our JASS this week, I hope you all got the email. We will be completing all sections in school however, we will only be doing 2 hours of me and my world in school and it would be great if you could do the remaining hour/ hours at home. We will be sharing our JASS books next term and we would love it if you could record any other activitiess that you get up to to share to the class. We are all so exited to hear all about your adventures.
This week we got to hear about all the exciting things the Starling class got up to over half term. We have also just started our new topic, Animals. Our main focus of this week has been Rhinos as at the end of this term we will be writing our own fact file all about Rhinos. In English this week we have started to explore different types of fact files and we did some of our own research on Rhinos. On Friday we even got the chance to talk to a Zoo Keeper to find out even more about Rhinos!
Did you know that Rhinoceros means nose horn!
This week we did lots of fun crafts. We did some painting phonics, drawing and we even made our Christmas cards. We hope you liked them! We have no spelling for over half term, we will resume them after the first week back. I hope you all have a lovely half term and a well deserved rest.
This week we have had a lot of fun. We went to Church for Harvest and we had a sports morning where we focused on our Athletics skills. It was super fun! In topic we made a map of our school and using our amazing map skills we were able to find Dotty. Well done everyone!
This week we did a big write on the Bog Baby and what he would do if he came into our classroom. The Bog baby got up to lots of naughty things, but lucky we had lots of heroes to save the day. Well done everyone!
This week we had so much fun! In RE we made a short play based on some of the story in the Quran. In PE we made an obstacle course focused on our jumping skills. However, we all agreed that the very best part of our week was making our very own Coats of Arms.
Wow what a week! We have had lots of trips to Penny for such amazing work. This week we have planned our coat of arms design we will be making next week, learnt about celebrations in different religions and we have continued our guided reading the The Owl who was afraid of the dark.
The children have really settled in this week. We have played lots of games, learnt about natural and man-made objects in Topic and even spotted lots of man-made and natural features within our school. Well done everyone!
This week we have been experimenting with different numbers in maths, continuing our adventure with The Bog baby in English and we even learnt about a new religion! What an exiting week!
In English this week we have started to explore how we can use adjectives to describe ourselves. In DT we have started to looked at coats of arms and discussed the significance of the different colours, shapes and animals along with what we would put on our own coat of arms. We finished of the lesson by making a colarge of all the children’s favourite coats of arms to use for inspiration and reference in following lessons.
