Reception Spring 2020

When it was finally cold enough we had fun making Jack Frost decorations.  We put little natural treasures in the palettes covered with water and were so excited the next morning to see that they had frozen.  We like exploring the changes in temperature and weather conditions.

Nursery February 2020

We started off the Spring Term by exploring penguins and polar animals. The children had great fun in our ice cave. They also investigated animals which were frozen in ice, thinking about melting. We made wonderful penguins from shapes. 

We moved onto reading traditional tales. We tapped pins into shoes and had a great time in our shoe shop, trying on, buying and selling footwear whilst learning about The Elves and the Shoe Maker. We had a go at our own sewing. 

Next we used recycled materials to make straw, stick and brick houses, whilst learning about The Three Little Pigs. Wolves were huffing and puffing and pigs were thinking of ways in which they could defeat the wolf. 

We finished the half term by trip trapping over bridges as The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children loved role playing and trying to convince the troll to let them pass. We made stick puppets and used instruments to add sound effects to the story. Another great half term! 

Year 4 February 2020

This term we have been making animations about folk tales on the computers, making musical instruments at home and building cities following our enquiry based on The Journey” story. We also used paint.net to edit pictures of our faces.

Year 5 Autumn 2019

In October, Year 5 pupils visited Holt Hall for a three-day residential trip. The focus was on the environment and team-work with the children working towards NOLA (National Outdoor Learning Award.)  We visited Wells beach and pine woods to make sand sculptures and write poetry and based ourselves back at Holt to look at invertebrate lives under water and in the woodland. We explored personal survival by making dens, lighting fires, gutting and cooking fish.

Year 6 Autumn 2019

Year 6 have had a great start to the school year. They really enjoyed their Yoga sessions which gave them an opportunity to explore a range of stretches and balances. The children also practised some deep breathing exercises which might help at stressful times.

Year 6 have been studying ‘Light and Shadow’.  They have been using the Ipads to capture photos of different aspects of light and shade around the school. They were able to take some clever photos which will be used in their work.

Year 3 Autumn 2019

We began our Science in Year 3 with an exciting enquiry entitled “Are you attractive enough?” We had lots of fun investigating with magnets and learned about magnets in everyday life.

Volcanoes

Year 3 have been learning a great deal this half term about volcanoes. We found out what makes the Earth angry and learnt about how volcanoes erupt. We then made our own volcanoes and created a volcanic eruption using baking soda and vinegar.

We began the year as fashion designers! We read the book called ‘Bill’s New Frock’ by Ann Fine and this made us think about the reasons why we wear different clothes. We then worked in groups to invent a new uniform for a particular group of people.

Year 2 Autumn 2019

In Year 2 this term we have been thinking about journeys and getting settled into our new year group. We went for a walk around the local area, looking for human and physical features. When we returned to the classroom we drew some super maps of our journeys.

We ended our enquiry with a fantastic home learning exhibition, where the children got to share their hard work with the parents.

Nursery Autumn 2019

We started our new year by thinking about our families and finding out about each other by sharing our All About Me books.

We loved listening to the story Owl Babies and thinking about this family. We found our about owls and made our own model owls. 

We moved onto a Colours theme with lots of exciting activities. We read Blue Kangaroo books and made blueberry muffins. We hopped into Green week, singing songs about frogs and making apple crumble. We made jam tarts and talked about fire fighters for Red week. We had a fun and informative visit from a fire fighter following on from this.

During Multicoloured week we read the story of Rainbow Fish and made our own beautiful salt dough fish.

We have enjoyed playing a variety of maths games using different manipulatives.
