  • Ark Farm Visit
    On Tuesday 21st March we were so lucky to have Ark Farm come in and visit us. They set their travelling farm up on the school field, with a donkey, sheep, pigs, goats, ducks, chickens and a dog all happily sharing the same enclosure - and we absolutely loved getting to meet, stroke and learn about all these friendly animals, as you can see from the pictures below...

  • World Book Day
    We loved getting into costume for this year's World Book Day, dressing-up as our favourite characters and inviting our families to join us for a day of book-sharing and reading activities.

  • The Tiger Who Came To Tea
    We have had lots of fun this half-term with our story The Tiger Who Came To Tea. We received a letter inviting us to a tea party, and then created story maps, orally retold the story and innovated upon it. We have absolutely loved inventing our own stories and have many different animals come to tea such as monkeys, dinosaurs and ponies!

  • Our Tea Party!
    We had a fantastic time at our tea party. We received a surprise letter from Sophie and when we got to the hall we saw that the tables had been set up! We tried milky tea, buns, Victoria sponge cake and cucumber sandwiches. We loved every moment, and it really inspired us to talk and write about the story.

  • Our day at the farm
    We had a fantastic time on our first school trip of the year, which took place in December. We caught our first glimpses of the birds as soon as we arrived at Herrings Green Farm, and couldn’t wait to get inside. Over the course of the day, we saw a huge range of flying creatures, and were amazed by the eagles, owls and hawks - and we all got the opportunity to hold two owls (called Marmite and Oscar) too. Everyone was very brave! We also had the chance to watch a bird show, where they flew very close to our heads.After lunch we went to visit the farm, where we saw Shetland ponies, donkeys and a very large shire horse. We got to touch guinea pigs and a very large rabbit! It was a fantastic (if a bit chilly) day and everyone had a great time - and we can’t wait to find out where our next school trip will take us!

  • Christmas Craft Day
    We finished off the Autumn Term with a fantastic Christmas Craft day. Family members were invited in to join their children (and teachers) in making a range of Christmassy items from card, felt, beads and glitter - which gave us a great chance to practice our cutting, gluing and planning skills, as well as talking about colours, shapes and the effect we wanted to achieve. Having so many family members around made the day particularly special, and reminded us of the wider community that the school is a part of - all of which made it a great way to round-off a busy term, as you can hopefully see from these pictures...

What we've learnt about this term:x

  • Farmer Duck
    This half term has been all about the farm! We have looked at the story of Farmer Duck and loved orally retelling it and innovating our own. We have spent lots of time looking at non-fiction books and writing recipes (which we then obviously had to cook), as well as learning about different animals, ready for our farm visit.

  • Own Learning
    We have had many activities related to our topic available to choose from within our own learning time. We have picked a few of our favourite moments from this half-term to share with you.

Our Summer Term Topic:
Jack and the Beanstalk
x

Communication & Language:
We will be encouraged to speak in longer sentences throughout the day, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary. Through lots of class and small group talk, we will be supported in becoming more confident speakers, and also will work to improve our listening skills.

We will be asked to explain why we are choosing to do particular things and will be supported in using words such as and, because and so to extend our sentences, link ideas and explain our thinking.

Literacy:
Our class book for the next half-term will be Jack and the Beanstalk. We will begin by learning the text by heart, supported by actions - so make sure you ask us to tell it to you at home! We will be drawing story maps based on the text, then adapting these to create our own stories We will continue to work on our phonics and letter formation every day, so that we can write simple sentences accurately.

Maths:
In mathematics we will continue to focus on counting, ensuring that we can all count confidently and accurately to 20, with many of us pushing on to 30 and beyond. We will be adding different amounts together using practical objects and will work on developing our subtraction, too, using contexts linked to our topic. We will also be practicing our shape recognition, finding, identifying and collecting examples of a wide range of 2d and 3d shapes. You can help us at home by counting with us every day and looking for the numbers and shapes all around us.

Personal, Social & Emotional Learning
We are going to be focussing on our emotions over the term. We will be thinking about how different characters from our book feel and how we might feel if we took their place. We will work on accepting delays and waiting for turns, too.

Understanding the World
Next half-term, we will be looking at the places where different people live and the similarities and differences in our homes and houses. We will draw, build, talk about and compare houses, and imagine what our dream homes might look like. We will also be thinking about the places where characters in stories we are familiar with live.

We will be doing lots of planting and growing and will be helping to take care of our Early Years garden! Our class bears will also continue to be sent home every week as we love sharing the special events in our lives with the rest of the class!
