Term 3

Welcome to Term 3! This term we will be learning all about Space! Click here to have a look at the Learning Log that has been sent home, it is filled with ideas of how you can help at home. 

We have had a special visit from Simon who brought with him a mobile planetarium (inflatable dome) for us to enter and explore the stars and planets. We had the best time!

Term 2

Welcome to Term 2 of this academic year! This term will be a busy one as we begin learning all about 'Nocturnal Animals' and start to think about the lead up to our December Christmas performances. Keep your eyes peeled for important dates and information which can be found on the school website, in newsletters, learning logs and on our notice board in the playground. We will have lots of different events coming soon such as Christmas parties, this year's nativity, a Church Service, and showcases of our work in class. 

Wriggly Roadshow visit

To kick start our topic of 'Nocturnal Animals' we had some very special visitors! James from the 'Wriggly Roadshow' brought in a range of animals for us to learn about and we even had the opportunity to hold them. We learnt all about their sleeping habits, diet, habitats and lots of other fascinating facts! Have a look at the photos below.

Term 1

The children have settled well into their new classes and routines. They are enjoying phonics and learning in-depth about numbers 1-10. 

This term our learning is focused around the theme of 'All About Me'. We will be thinking about how we are all unique and special and will be looking at similarities and differences between ourselves and others. If you take a look inside our classrooms you will be able to see the self-portraits that we have painted proudly on display!
