- Night Time Parent Event
Thanks to all those who came to our special reading event! The children really enjoyed it and I hope you had a good time too.
Reading daily really helps your child become a more confident reader and develop their love of reading. We try to make reading as fun and engaging as possible at school and I hope you could see how much the children enjoyed reading and exploring books.
- A week in Year One
We’ve spent lots of time out of the classroom this week; learning how best to look after a hedgehog, learning all about shapes and looking at the plants and trees we have around school!
- Building Volcanoes
As you can see we’re really enjoying using our team work skills to make a volcano! After the holidays we’ll be adding details and making them the right colour, before we make them erupt! Make sure you keep an eye out for our finished design!
- Outdoor Maths
We have been learning how to divide using different methods. We shared sweets, then went outside and showed how to share using chalk.
We enjoyed learning out in the sunshine!
- Our Y1 class have been creating habitat for frogs and toads as part of Wild Challenge. We are always looking at how we can improve our school grounds to support our local wildlife populations.
- Busy busy busy
We have been doing lots this week; learning about rhyming words, thinking of adjectives, writing about dinosaurs, as well as lots of lovely maths work!
- Learning about watercolours
We had an resident art expert showing us how to create a background with watercolours. We watched carefully and then had a try ourselves. We are going to develop this into a finished piece of work, so stay tuned to see what we can do!
- Dinosaur Hunt…
We have been hunting for dinosaurs, and have thought about describing the mysterious creature…come back next week to find out if we manage to find it!
- The Happiness Pig
We watched a video about the happiness pig, who cheers all his friends up! Then we talked about what makes us happy and what we can do to make others happy.
- Welcome Back!
We hope you all had a great summer and enjoyed the hot weather! Now we are back at school, there are some things that happen differently now the children have moved into Year One. They will need to bring indoor PE kit on a Monday, and outdoor PE kit on a Wednesday. They will also need some clothes they don’t mind getting messy for their outdoor Eco sessions, which happen on a Monday. The best advice would be to bring all of these together on a Monday and then take them home on Friday.
Reading books and reading records will be sent home tomorrow for those children who bring in their book bags, and homework will be given daily.
Please make sure you return the slips for morning and after school clubs as quickly as possible as places are likely to fill up quickly!
Thanks, Mr Hodgson
Even though we’ve only been back at school for a day, there has already been some great learning going on!
