It was lovely to see so many of our parents, Governors and staff come in to decorate our school this weekend. What a brilliant day! Class 3 had a repaint over the summer and it looked so good with its 2-tone grey that our Governors decided to call a 'Pride of School' Painting Party for the entrance area of school. [...]
Today in class one we were very lucky to have Fabienne talk to us about her home country, Germany.We found Germany on the map and compared it to England, Fabienne showed us some of the German language - we counted from 1-20, the days of the week and the weather! We looked at the German flag, and all the children [...]
We have had another busy week! In phonics, the reception children have started to learn digraphs. 'Two letters make one sound!' - Louis. They have picked up on them so quickly and are already starting to read them in words. They have also been practicing their writing and have written some lovely sentences. Year 1s have been writing about The [...]
This week we have been seeing some fantastic maths from all of the children, and they have been beginning to use these skills independently in their learning. Year 1s have been practicing their number bonds to 10 and missing number problems which has been very tricky...but as you can see from the two very happy and proud faces that we [...]
It's lovely to have our parents come and have a look around the school, seeing their children active and learning and finding out how the classroom works, rather than hearing about it, or not (!), over the dinner table. Thanks for coming! ...And a perfect opportunity to spread out lost property out, and offer the use of our Sharpie Pen!
What a fantastic day we had yesterday at Watermouth Castle. We had a lovely time exploring the inside which had been set up as 'Victorian' rooms. We even braved the dungeons and made it out the other end! We watched the fountain light show, mined for gold, watched various fairy-tale themed puppet shows...but our favourite part of the day was [...]
Class 1 parents had a lovely afternoon... From trying various menu options for school lunch (Keri's issuing her curry recipe if you're interested!), playing outside on the field and then Miss Smale held an informal phonics presentation too. Hope no one fell asleep after lunch - that pudding was amazing too!
We had such fun yesterday afternoon learning all about staying safe on the Internet and 'stranger danger'. With a bit of help from Sid, Lee and Kim we all became 'Super Protectors' and made our own badges. We also danced along to SID's song!
Today we have started a science experiment called 'bean in a bag'. We each put a bean into a sealed bag with a piece of damp kitchen roll, we then hung our bags up around the class. Over the next few days, our beans should begin to grow! We have been wondering if there will be a magic bean...maybe we [...]
In class one we have been reading the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We found what looks like a giant's footprint in our classroom! We decided to measure it to see how big the foot was. We measured it to be 27 blocks long - and Emmie used a measuring tape and found it was 54cm! That's a very big [...]
