Thank you so much for bringing in your Easter Gardens this week. They were so fantastic and the pupils loved talking about how they made them and what features of an Easter Garden they made sure they had. 


Week Ending 26th March 2021


What a busy week we've had. Looking at our pictures we have been making fossils, rockets measuring with balance scales and been creative with onomatopoeia.


Maths has all been about exploring weight and mass, we've tackled problem solving as we've we've explored the mathematical fact that something doesn't necessarily weigh more if it's bigger.


In English this week we have been exploring the book 'Race to the Moon and Back.' This week we used the book to write a list about how we would make our own rockets for this weeks art lesson. The week ended with a role play lesson where we acted out words that resemble their meaning, also called onomatopoeia words. The pupils then created an onomatopoeia word book. 


In Science we are continuing to look at the seasons, this weeks lesson we investigated the position of the sun in different seasons and in what season is the sun hottest. 


In History and art we have been looking at the remarkable woman who was Mary Anning. She was an early fossil hunter and researcher with a lot of her work forming early research at the National History Museum.  The children were thoroughly absorbed with what a fossil is and how they are formed, some of them certainly taught us a thing or two. In art we made our own fossils out of clay and the children will be bringing these home next week.  


Linking in with our class read we made some fantastic rockets out of toilet rolls kindly donated by Ella Smith in 1M, we hope you can agree that they look amazing.



Have a lovely weekend and we will see you on Monday.

Week ending 19th March 2021

We have had a lovely week getting back into the swing of thing, the children have been working really hard.  Thank you to those of you who have brought in your wellies, as you can see we have our brand new wellie-rack which we have started to use and we hope to be out as much as possible to enhance their learning.


In English this week we have been continuing to look at the book 'The man on the Moon, a day in the life of Bob.' The week started with a recap of diary writing and then using our knowledge we wrote a diary entry for Bob's day. Later on we asked Bob questions about the moon, what is the moon like? What is it like to be an astronaut? We ended the week by writing a list of things we would take with us if we were going to the moon, the pupils had lots of fun writing their lists. As a class we came up with, food, water, tent, sleeping bag, camera and a TV. 


In Maths we have been recapping our number bonds to 10 and 20.  The children have produced some fantastic work and have come a long way since they first joined us in September. Next week we will be looking at weight and mass whilst using scales.


In Science this week we went on a scavenger hunt to find the first signs of spring. The pupils had lots of fun using their detective eyes to spot the signs of spring, these included: tree buds, bees, daffodils and blossoms.


In Religious Education we are continuing with our topic of Salvation. This week we went ous Educationout into the woodland area to find things to help us start making an Easter Garden. We came back together to see if we had all the pieces to make an Easter Garden. Making sure we had sticks for the cross, a stone for the door of the tomb and grass. 


Our History topic this term is looking at significant individuals and the children learnt about Henry VIII and his six wives and Elizabeth I. They were fascinated that he cut off some of his wives heads! Many of them explained that they enjoyed watching Horrible Histories which we linked to this lesson so we would thoroughly recommend you watching these series of programmes as they are an excellent introduction to History.


We linked our art to The Man on the Moon with the children using the media of chalk to create some amazing moon scenes.


Have a lovely weekend and we will see you on Monday.

Week ending Friday 12th March 2021


Welcome back to all our families, it has been so lovely seeing you all at drop off and pick up time and despite the odd tear when the reality of being back has hit us for the majority of the time it has been laughter and smiles.  


We have eased the children in gently for the first few days along with the fun of World Book day when we explored the book The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. From next week we will be resuming our usual timetable of subjects.  This week and over the next coming few weeks we will be assessing the children and planning where we need to go to support their learning but at the same time stretch them to be the best we know they can be.


With this in mind we will not be giving you any homework this week (we feel you parents could do with a little break) but it will resume again next week with the normal phonics, spelling and one other subject. We will also have a larger Easter project which hopefully you will have received an email about.


Please look at the photos below showing you what we have been up to this week. 


Have a lovely weekend
