It is so lovely to see you all after the winter break! We all worked really hard last term and I hope after a much deserved break we are all ready and keen to work very hard this term! Our new topic is a really fun one 'Vroom Vroom' and the children already seem really enthusiastic about it- helping to create our new train book corners! With June fast approaching, when the phonics screening is taking place for your children, please make the most of your new Espresso log in and explore the phonics section in Key Stage 1 under the English section. It has video clips that show and say the sounds for you and games for the children to play to really develop their phonic skills, which in turn will help them with their reading and writing. Thank you for your continued support!

We cannot wait to have you in our class to learn some wonderful new interesting things! This is our class page where we will post different pieces of your work/achievements from lots of different subjects. When you feel proud of something, please let us know so that we can post it onto our page. Remember to keep visiting throughout the year to explore some of the hard work that you have completed. On our page, you can also see what we are going to be learning about in our class newsletter.

In Autumn term we followed instructions to create our own jam sandwiches. We used time conjunctions to make sure our instructions were in the right order.
In maths we have learned to name various 2D and 3D shapes. We have used straws to construct 2D shapes and have begun to explore their properties.
When we were looking at instructions we also created our very own fruit faces. We were inspired by the artist Archimboldo.
In English we role played the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We thought about what each character might say when Jack brought home the magic beans!
In Science we have been looking at 'Animals including humans'. For one of our lessons we went on a bird walk around our local area. We saw swans, magpies, parakeets, pigeons, crows and even a woodpecker!
In English we looked at the story 'No Dinner' we role played different scenes from the story. First we pretended to be the different animals who wanted to eat the poor old woman. Then we acted out the part when the old woman ate so much food and became really fat!
