Nursery Autumn Term first half 2017

In Nursery we have spent lots of time settling in to our new surroundings and making new friends. We have talked about our families. We have shared photos of them and talked about the things we like to do with our families. We have just started a theme based around colours and have so far enjoyed lots of green activities such as making lime jelly, painting green pictures and learning all about frogs. Next week we are looking forward to an exciting visit from a fire fighter during red week!

Year 1 Autumn Term so far…..

We have had a fantastic start to the year and settled quickly into year 1.

We started with some inspirational maths and had a go at following the mazes with our fingers. The tricky part was keeping the stickers on our fingers!

We invited our teds into school for the day so that they could see we what we have been getting up to.

We have begun all of learning, including heading out into the school grounds to explore as part of our ‘Woodlands’  learning.

Year 3 have had a fun start to the year! We started by designing, making and displaying our own versions of a new uniform for different people. We put on a fashion show in the hall to show off our designs.

We then had a great Week of Inspirational Maths and worked on lots of fun and challenging problems.

We enjoyed welcoming our parents and carers to see our new hall and to sample our Crazy Cocktails. We raised £122.62 for MacMillan by drinking cocktails and eating delicious cakes!

Year 5 autumn term, so far…

The children settled well to a new year and enjoyed a week of Inspirational maths challenges.

We began a unit on character description and had great fun recounting various stories in drama and speech for writing.

The children hosted a most successful afternoon tea, from which we raised a fantastic £150 for Macmillan Cancer support; thank you for your support and donations.

As this half term comes to an end, we have the best to follow: our Residential trip to Holt Hall.

Look out for the next year 5 update to find out how we got on.
