Summer has arrived!
Our first trip to the swimming pool!
Monday 5th June
This term we will be learning all about 'space' and our chosen story is 'The Way Back Home'. The children are busy learning the story and retelling it in their own words. They are learning Makaton signs too. Ask your child to show you the sign for cupboard, aeroplane, climb or boy. They have also made rockets out of junk modelling and they have painted planets. We have also studied Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night and the children have painted their own versions. The children have been learning to write instructions and have produced booklets to accompany their rockets. They have also been learning about shapes and positional language as well as problem solving. In PE they have been learning all about gymnastics. Take a look at our photographs...
We had an amazing time at Pennywell Farm. We travelled in a big bus for nearly an hour! When we arrived, some of us took part in the Christmas Nativity with real animals. Then we went to the cafe for a drink and a biscuit and waited for Santa. We saw Santa in his grotto and he gave us all a present! We played in the tractor barn and we had lunch. As a special treat we had a ride on the train before we travelled back to school.
It was a special day out with our friends and teachers.

In English, we designed a sandwich and we wrote labels to show what our filings would be.
We looked at our designs and read our labels.
Then we buttered our bread and started to make our sandwiches.
Our Wonderful Dads!
Thank you to all the brilliant Dads and Grandads that attended the 'Bring your Dad to School' morning. All the children thoroughly enjoyed making scarecrows and planting spring bulbs. A special well done to Mr Beale winning first prize!
We have been busy learning our letter sounds. So far we have learnt 6 sounds! We are learning to recognise these sounds, write them with the correct formation and say them correctly! We are also learning to blend sounds together to read, and to segment words to spell.
You can make lots of words from these 6 sounds and we are having fun finding them out.
We have been playing games to help us learn our phonics.
