Spring Half Term Homework

This term our topic was superheroes and we have looked at describing them.
As optional homework we would like children to create their own superhero and write a descriptive story.

We would also like children to practice their Phase 3 & 5 sounds, using the flashcards we have sent home.

What’s the point in pointalism?
We explored how TV pictures are made up of lots of small dots and created our own art.

Super Stories.


“Everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go”

The children have worked hard coming up with suggestions on how to solve Mary’s problem.


Not just clowning around.

Look at the teamwork and focus that children display in our circus skills lessons.

Autumn Term.

Weather or not, here we come!

This half term we have had heavy showers and been blessed with sunshine.

We were fortunate to have the expertise of an FA coach in and children loved working together in small groups.

We took the time to remember how lucky we are and gave thanks to those that ensured our freedom.


Technology is a wonderful thing. We took a look behind the cover of a keyboard to find out how it works.


Come on and celebrate!

Before half term we celebrated our love of recycling with a visit from Mrs. Recycle.


We celebrated the gift of food with our Harvest Festival.


A festival of light – celebrating Diwali and other cultures.


Half Term Home Learning.

Next half term we will be learning about different celebrations from different cultures.  Please talk to an adult at home about celebrations they have been to.  If you have been to a celebration  (ie Wedding or Christening) please come back to school ready to share your experiences; you could bring in a picture too.

Travelling far and wide.

We enjoyed our flight to Rio and managed to work out if we could fit all of our teddies on the plane. Unfortunately, the weather was very wet and cold so we didn’t stay for long.

Our local visit was to the Burton Art Gallery where we looked at different art from paintings to pottery. The children really enjoyed describing what they saw.


We focussed on measuring different distances with our hands, rulers and measuring tapes.


Out of this world learning.

The children have enjoyed exploring the role play area which is currently a boat.


We have re-designed our reading area so that it is a quiet calm area where children can explore the variety of books we have, while cuddling a teddy.


Our outside area has been a big hit with the children and has allowed them to easily make the transition from Foundation stage to Year 1.
