Our children are central to all that we do.

Year 1

Week 3 This week in Maths we continued learning the time. We continued with hour and half hour and also looked at seconds minutes and hours. In Science we looked at food chains with the children making their own food chains. We also learnt about nocturnal animals. In English we looked at adding suffixes er and est. We did a lot of work on handwriting and used playdoh to warm our fingers up for writing. We talked about resilience and challenging ourselves in PSHE.

Week 2 This week in Maths the children starting learning the time to the hour and half hour. In English we looked at analysing characters in the fairytale Hansel & Gretel. The children got to choose their favourite character and rein act the story which they really enjoyed. In Art they looked at drawing a self portrait and we also had a dance workshop based on our theme this term 'carnival of the animals'.

Summer Term 2 Week 1. I hope you all had a happy half term and enjoyed the Jubilee bank holiday. We have had a wonderful week this week learning all about the 1980s. Fashion, music, art, school, playground games, food, children's tv, history and technology were all covered. I think the children are still in shock there was no internet, ipads or mobiles back then!! We had a great time at the Jubilee street party. The children did a fantastic job performing Agadoo to the whole school and did a great job learning the routine in a short time. The children took home their beautifully designed Jubilee plates too. We have finished the Phonics Screening - the children did their best and that's all I can ask of them. On a sad note, Mrs Fernandes left us this week. She will be greatly missed as our class TA. The children have also enjoyed watching the progress of the MUGA and watching the diggers operating. Enjoy the photos and have a great weekend.
