We made ourselves out of gingerbread! We used chocolate balls for eyes and liquorice laces for hair. We added teeth and lips; as well as lots of other different features and items of clothing! Delicious!
This week we have been looking at our bodies, our senses and our feelings. The children have learned about the 5 different senses and have used them practically in the classrooms, as well as reading Elmer and the Wind and discussing the different senses Elmer uses in the story. We have been looking at 2D shapes and practising recognising them and describing their properties.
We made handprints this week and wrote our names on them, to signify our agreement to the school’s Golden Rules. These will all be displayed in the hall.
Next week, our focus will be ‘Where I live and where I have been’. Please encourage the children to bring in any letters and postcards from relatives for Show and Tell. The children only bring one show and tell per week, if they would like.
We have sent home their first reading and discussion books. They will be sent home every Wednesday and need to be returned on Monday morning. Please can you write a comment in the reading records. Please focus on sound or digraph recognition, blending and asking them lots of inference questions about the story.
With best wishes,

This week, Year 1 have been learning about the artist Guiseppe Archimbaldo. We were inspired by his work and created our own class pieces with an array of fruit and vegetables! We then experimented with oil pastels and had a go at creating our own pastel version of the fruit face. Take a look at some of our wonderful work!
A place you can be yourself!
In Year 3, children have settled into their new maths groups nicely last week. We have all been looking comparing and ordering numbers using place value!
Year 4 have made the most of their outdoor P.E time this week. They had fun cheering their teams on during the relay races, perfecting their camo crawls and long jumping into a hoop. It was wonderful to see them working collaboratively as a team!
