Weeks 4-6

What a very busy and exciting last few weeks of the term we had! Some of the activities we took part in included the Nativity play which all the children enjoyed taking part in and did extremely well with. We also enjoyed a day in the snow building snowmen when we got outside. It was nice to come in and warm up though!

After that, we had our trip to Smart Trees where we followed a trail through the snowy trees to find different activities. The highlight of the trip was definitely paying a visit to Father Christmas and his reindeer in the grotto.

We made some gingerbread biscuits ready to sell at the Advent fayre and finally we had a fantastic Christmas party and Father Christmas came to visit us again.

Enjoy looking at the photographs below of all the exciting things we’ve been up to.

Week 3

We have had another enjoyable at school. We have been very busy practising singing and learning our lines for the Nativity play. Thank you if you have been helping your child with this at home.

On Tuesday, the children used the laptops to draw pictures and really enjoyed this experience.

Our favourite day of the week was definitely Friday when we celebrated Children in Need. We had a great time dancing away at the disco. We also enjoyed eating our delicious Children in Need biscuits.

Week 2

We have had a very busy week this week. It started on Monday when we went for a trip to Woodrow library. The children were learning all about light and had to think of different light sources and investigated if they could see light through different objects.


On Tuesday we had a visit from Pudsey bear, which the children throughly enjoyed.

And finally on Friday, the children investigated and talked about what happens when we change food by cooking it. We discussed if it was reversible (could be changed back) or irreversible (could not be changed back.) The children enjoyed eating toast and scrambled egg.


2nd half of the Autumn Term Week 1

We have had a good week back at school after half term.

In maths the children have been leaning  how to use simple number bonds to 10. For example, 1+9, 2+8 etc.

They have used a song called Farmer Pete to help them with this. The link is below.

In history we were learning about Guy Fawkes and why we now celebrate Bonfire Night.

The children made a traditional Bonfire Night cake called Parkin, which most children enjoyed eating.

Thank you to everyone who came to parents’ consultations on Wednesday. It was lovely to see so many parents attend.


Weeks 6-7

During this last week of the half term, the children have really enjoyed making rockets that they designed in Design and Technology. They were very creative and enjoyed working out how to make them stand up.
