Never too young to enjoy a good book !

The children enjoyed sharing their Ready Steady Read time with a young visitor........who was very willing to listen to their stories!

Outdoor Classroom Day 2019



We took part in Outdoor Classroom Day 2019 by enjoying maths, phonics and guided reading outside. We took the opportunity to remind ourselves of some sun safety rules given we have been so blessed with the weather!

In Maths we showed our understanding of halving and quartering shapes and identified 1 half and 1 quarter in the shapes we drew.

In phonics we worked on spotting those tricky split digraphs and in guided reading we enjoyed sharing our favourite books.

The lifecycle of a butterfly.



We have been excited by the arrival of caterpillars in our classroom. We have enjoyed observing them as the eat and eat and eat and continue to grow very big!



We have creatively explored the lifecycle of a butterfly, using different pasta shapes on a paper plate to show the different stages of a butterfly's metamorphosis.





We also produced some super writing and drawings explaining the process. 

Jack and the Beanstalk



We have introduced our learning about Fairy Tales and Traditional Tales by reading Jack and the Beanstalk.



We have been working on retelling the story using actions. We have worked really hard to try and remember the whole story using a story map to help us follow Jack's journey.

Here is a video of our first try at telling the story all the way through! We gave it a really good go! Well done!

Wow! Growth and Change!

What an amazing start to our new topic of growth and change! 

We have worked through a carousel of activites in the 5 year 1/2 classrooms and outside taking part in a range of activities such as minibeast hunts, plant identification, seed planting, barefoot walks and making wormeries!

In 1B we planted seeds.



We planted a special type of sunflower called a Teddy Bear Sunflower!

This is what it will look like when it grows ...


We look forward to seeing how you all get on growing them.
