WB: 11TH November                   Word of the Week: Fireworks

The children have enjoyed creating some beautiful firework pictures using paint in different ways. In Literacy the children have been creating their own name rockets and have followed, written and ordered instructions in order to create their own delicious chocolate sparklers.


WB: 4th November     Word of the Week: length

Wow!! What a fabulous day we had yesterday meeting the four different owls that came to visit us. The children were really excited and thoroughly enjoyed holding them using the special gloves, asking lots of questions, hearing lots of facts and watching them fly across the hall.


WB: 28TH October    Word of the Week: Brave

This week the children have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story ‘Owl Babies’. The children have sequenced and retold the story using their fabulous owl spoons that they have made using paints and patterns. We have also created some beautiful pictures of a night time scene using chalk and black paper. The children have loved listening to other owl stories and have talked about feelings, similarities and differences between them all. The children then drew pictures of their favourite owl characters and wrote some wonderful labels, captions and sentences about them using their phonics knowledge.

The children are very excited about our Owl visit on Monday. Photos will be uploaded very soon!smiley

Autumn term 1

WB: 7th October       STEM Week     Word of the Week: Investigation

We have been carrying out many different investigations and creating our own inventions. We have made our own boats and tested if they floated or sunk depending on the materials that we used. We have also created our own rockets and launched them into space by using different sized bottles.

WB: 30th September     Word of the Week: Family

This week the children have been talking about their families and homes. We have also been on a walk around the back of the school field, looking carefully at similarities and differences. Next week we will be looking at what we have inside our homes and be creating our own dream bedrooms. We will also be thinking about the importance of looking after ourselves and looking at healthy and unhealthy foods.
