We have been on a shape hunt around the school. Look what we found.

Room on the Broom

We have been using the story of Room on the Broom to fire our imaginations, inspire our story-telling, writing and even our maths. Here are some pictures of us measuring, estimating, telling stories, playing in our role-play area, getting creative with some spooky playdough, making some spells in our cauldron and even tidying up our magic mess. 

My family

As part of our RE topic on family we talked to the class about who is in our family and celebrated the fact we are all part of God's family.

Our new Context topic for the Spring Term is Dinosaurs. We have been learning all about dinosaurs, have used our imaginations to create nests for baby dinosaurs and have created some T-Rexes, some diplodocuses and some stegasaurus from playdough. Have our look at some of our work.

We have also been busy learning our sounds and improving our counting skills. Here are some photos of us at work.

Chinese New Year


Pupils got the chance to get up close to nature with a visit from the rangers from Zoolab and some of their pets. The animal-handling company aims to stimulate an interest in science and nature. Here are some photos from the day.
