Autumn Term 2017
Welcome Back!
What a busy first week! There have been lots of things to remember and new routines to learn. Everyone has worked really hard and settled quickly into their new classes. Well done.

 

 

Autumn Term 1 2017
This half term our topic is called Memory Box. We are starting our topic by meeting
twin baby girls. 

Maya and Leah came to visit us to help us learn about what babies need and how they grow. The girls enjoyed drinking their milk and were very well behaved!

As part of our Memory Box topic, Mrs Powers came into school to help us learn about the olden days. We found out what it was like for her to grow up after WWII and also what it was like growing up without a TV or computer! 
 

 

Autumn Term 2

 

 

This half term we will be thinking about 'Terrific Trees'. We will be looking for signs of Autumn , keeping a weather diary and looking at the trees around our school. We will be creating some natural art and reading stories and poems about Autumn and woodlands.

 

We began our topic by going on an Autumn walk. We looked at lots of different trees and noticed how the leaves change colour and fall during Autumn. We then did some beautiful pictures of our leaves. 

 

 

13th -17th November is Anti Bulling week
 

 

This week we will be thinking about what bullying is and how we can all work together to stop it.
 

 

We have made a kind hand because we know how important it is to be kind to others.
 

 

We thought about what our perfect playtime would be like and how it's important that we are all friends on the playground.
 

Friday 17th November

Children in Need Day!

We had lots of fun raising money for Children in Need. We came to school in non-uniform or pyjamas and took part in lots of Pudsey activities and games. The children came up with some really good ideas for how the money we raised could help children who are less fortunate than us.

 

Road Safety Week
This week we will be thinking about how to keep safe when we are on or near roads.

 A big thank you to all the grown -ups who came  with us to the church.

We had a fantastic day celebrating the royal wedding. We had lots of fun making cards for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We also made cornflake cakes, flags and designed a commemorative mug for the special occasion. We watched clips of other royal weddings and couldn't believe that some were in black and white. We also learnt about Prince Harry's family tree. 

We had a fantastic afternoon at our medieval banquet! We practised our curtsies and bows, our dancing and ate a delicious feast! Some children were knighted by the Queen. 

 Tuesday 12th June

Today is the day we harvested our potato crop!

Today we wrote our stories about how the drummer created the world and shared them with our friends.
