This week has been the start of new topic 'Celebrate'. The children were excited to see the new activities in their environment and learn about the first festival we will cover - Diwali. We made our own Diya lamps for this festival of light.

In our maths work we have been looking at shapes and their properties and sorting those with no corners and those with three corners. We then used the shapes to make our own shape pictures.


Take Away Homework

Date: 22nd Oct 2021 @ 1:41pm

On Monday, the children shared their Take away homework from our study theme – ‘Timeline’.   It was lovely to hear the children moving around the classrooms reading and exploring the different tasks, which had been completed over the course of this last half term.  Well done everyone, for the fabulous learning, which has taken place this half term.  It was fantastic to see everyone 'let their light shine' in some of their favourite curriculum areas.

Well Otters you have completed your first half term in school. You are all superstars. This week we have learnt to play dominoes and have been subitising the number of dots. We made estimations as to which of our autumnal vegetables had the most seeds and had fun scooping them out.
Have a wonderful half term break everyone. Mrs Allen

This week in Otters Class we found a chrysalis in our outside garden which prompted lots of questions of what could be inside. We have explored lots of Autumnal objects from acorns and conkers to pumpkins and squash and used them to make repeating patterns in our maths work. We have used peg boards to strengthen our fine motor skills and continuing with our topic focus this week we have looked at what a family tree is and who is in our family. Well done Otters

You could also practise writing them, the letter formation rhymes are on our class page under phonics and reading.

Archaeologists for the Day

Well done Squirrels, we have had a brilliant day.

Victorian Workshop

Date: 7th Sep 2021 @ 10:46pm

Year 1 & 2 travelled back in time today to meet Mrs Grimm, a Victorian teacher and Emerald Pity the housemaid.  We learned alot about what is was like to be a Victorian child.  The teachers were very strict - not like Mrs B! We acted out some of the jobs children had, like working in the coal mines or working as servants for Sir Warmly.  This has inspired us to find out much more...
