We loved seeing Riley’s wooden aeroplane in Year 2. What a talented carpenter he is!
Following on from our discovery of Mondrian, Year 2 children created their own Mondrian style pictures at home. They all look fabulous and make our classroom look very colourful.
In Year One we have been talking about why it is important to be proud of ourselves. For homework we were asked to think about something that we are proud and we have shared our stories during circle time this week. Here are some of the things that we are proud of:
I am a very proud teacher!
In Year 2, we have begun to explore colour. We have found out that Mondrian liked to use primary colours to create his abstract art. We created our own Modrian pictures by drawing both on the computer and with the colouring equipment, as well as using collage. We love our abstract art!
In Year One our topic this term is ‘Marvellous Me!’ We have had lots of fun getting to know our new classroom and learning about our new routines. As part of our topic, the children have been thinking about what they would like to be when they grow up. Everyone produced an excellent piece of writing and our futures look very promising as we have lots of aspiring builders, policemen, vets, teachers, hairdressers, engineers and bus drivers. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!
Year Two have had a great first week and enjoyed reading the story Silly Billy by Anthony Browne. We produced some lovely writing about the story and made our very own worry dolls, just like Billy. What amazing work it was!
Well done to everyone who joined us for ‘Wake up and shake up’ this week. Key Stage Two started our ‘Healthy Living Week’ by exercising before school on Monday morning with Miss Fyall. Foundation Stage and Key Stage One then continued to work hard during their ‘Wake up and shake up’ on Tuesday morning with Miss Edwards, Ms Gilbert and Mrs Hanratty. A special mention also goes to our fantastic kitchen staff who came to join in the fun too. Well done everyone! Don’t forget to join us for our ‘Bike it breakfast’ on Friday morning.
Year One had a fantastic time on our visit to Tesco for the ‘Farm to Fork’ trail. We went on a rainbow fruit and vegetable hunt throughout the store, tasted freshly baked tiger bread and also got to experience how cold the freezers were; it was -21 degrees inside! We had a brilliant time and we loved learning about why it is important to be healthy. Thank you Tesco!
On Friday our Year 2 children completed an amazing assembly for the whole school and parents. They have spent the last term finding out about the rainforest and shared all of their work.

This term, Year One are going to be learning about ‘The Great Outdoors’. Over the Easter holidays, the children were asked to create something relating to our new topic. I am so impressed by all of the fantastic homework that has been brought in, as it is clear to see that everyone has tried very hard. The children’s homework is currently on display in our classroom. Well done Year One!
