Spooky magnetism! We have been experimenting with magnets to see which objects "stick" and which do not. We then used this knowledge to make our own floating skeletons, black cats and witches to enhance our reading of the "Winnie the Witch" stories.

Harvest festival - From wheat to flour!

Still image for this video
Our children have been absolute superstars today with their performance for our school Harvest festival. Take a look at their excellent speaking and confidence in front of the whole school.
Well done to all!

Today we had a tractor come to visit us to enhance our learning about Harvest. It was brilliant and the children loved being able to climb inside it.

Thank you Mr Wilson!

Positional language beanbag song

Still image for this video
This week we have been learning about positional language within our Mathematics lessons.
The children have played various fun games and we learnt this beanbag song to help us - you may recognise the tune!
The children have been brilliant with their language to describe position - why not play a game at home to see if they have remembered 😀

Finding out about toys from the past. Our children were so keen to share their findings from their homework challenge. They asked family members about their favourite childhood toys. Some even still had them which were great to see.

It's a bear!

This video shows the end of our story hunt.

"We're going on a bear hunt."

Still image for this video
Today we re-read our bear story of the week, thinking carefully about the different settings and how they sounded.
We decided to make the story even more exciting by making it into a song and adding our own sound effects to the different settings.
The children picked their own instrument and decided which setting it sounded like.
They then showed excellent awareness of the repeated story language by joining in with the reciting.
Great work everyone!

Each class has been given a "worry monster" who will physically eat our children's worries when they are written down on paper. We set a competition for the children in their class to name their worry monster and then had a vote for our favourites. Well done to Freddy who named our Orchard class monster as "Geoffree" - we changed the spelling as he will let our worries free!

Our first P.E session! Traffic light warm up game, balancing beanbags and team races - what fun we all had!

Goldilocks and the three bears role-play!

This week we have been focusing on this very famous story as part of our afternoon lessons and our topic this term - "bears."
The children have listened to the story, talked about the characters and how they sound, helped Mrs Luffman (who is always getting things muddled up) to put pictures back in the right order and today they had a go at acting out their very own versions of the story. As a whole class we set the scenes and then practiced in our little groups before it was show time! Wow how amazing and confident all of the children were, well done you superstars!
