Where on Earth!

This week the children have been using Google Earth on the iPads to search for where we live. In Maths the children have been ‘counting on’ along a number line to solve addition. The children have been following instructions during our Literacy lessons. The children then wrote instructions using bossy words like; first, second, third, then, next, finally.


A Work of Art

This week the children have completed self portaits, which are on display outside their classrooms. In our Maths lessons the children have been ordering days of the week and months of the year. Literacy has developed some lovely describing and sentence writing skills using ‘because’. The atlases really interested us and we were able to find lots of different places in the world.

Busy Bees….

We have been busy in class this week. During our Literacy lessons we have been writing sentences, making sure we remember our capital letters and full stops! In our Maths lessons we have been finding one more and one less than a given number. Today we have been using algorithms in ICT, using the Bee-bot app on the iPads.



Welcome back to school in your new Year One class. Miss Hesketh and Miss Novell have really enjoyed having you back! During our Literacy lessons we have been hunting for describing words in the book Monkey Puzzle. In our Maths lesson we’ve been investigating length using unifix and our hands.


Ready, Steady… Go!

Wow! What beautiful weather we had for Sports day; all the children tried their best and did really well. The children supported one another and offered each other encouragement. We have been preparing for the end of term and have been speaking about what we have enjoyed this year.


Changes Ahead!

Another busy week passes by!

We have grown so much in our learning throughout the year. We are all very proud of all of our achievements. We hope that you enjoy reading our School Reports.

We have been thinking about our transition into Year One and enjoyed our change over day on Thursday. We were able to meet with our new teacher and find out what’s in store for next year.

Exciting times ahead…

Zoo Mania!

We have been using our trip to Whipsnade Zoo to support our work in Literacy, Maths and Art. We painted pictures of our favourite animals and wrote a piece of descriptive writing. We placed the animals in order of size and we gathered data by asking our friends about their favourite animal; we made tally charts and transferred the information onto a bar chart. We used the wooden blocks to make our own zoo. Check out our groovy glasses!

Roooooooaaaaaaaaar! What a School! What a Trip!

What an action packed week we have had; first winning School of the Year and then the Reception trip to Whipsnade Zoo. Thank you to our helpers who came along and thank you to the children for being so well behaved.

The Award Goes To…

Apple class had a visit from Bessie’s dad; he brought in the BAFTA he won! The class made their own BAFTA’s. We have been exploring capacity; we went on a bottle hunt and recorded the amount of liquid in each bottle. We programmed the Beebots to move around the mats. We enjoyed sharing our learning journeys with our friends and writing our reports.

Lights, Camera, Action!

We hope you enjoyed our sharing assembly; we loved working as a team to come together and perform our assembly with the other Reception class. Some children from year one came to share a story with us. We have been thinking about what we couldn’t do when we started school in September and what we can do now! We have achieved so much this year! We hope you have a lovely relaxing Father’s Day!
