We have been learning about Chinese New Year and comparing it to our family traditions. We have enjoyed playing in our Chinese restaurant role play, making dragon masks and decorations. We had great fun tasting a range of Chinese foods.
We went on a walk to the fruit and vegetable shop in the village to buy our snack and use our learning about money. We paid for our fruit with a 20p. It was a very cold day so we enjoyed a hot chocolate when we got back.
We took part in our first Godly Play session and learnt about the Holy Family. We enjoyed lots of fun activities afterwards.
We have began this term by looking at winter and the things around us that tell us it is here. We went on a winter walk to see if we could spot the signs in our environment. We shared a story about a bear’s winter house and then explored making shelters of our own for different animals. We have also looked at the types of animals that live in winter weather all year round.
We had lots of firsts this week. We enjoyed our first school Christmas dinner, took part in our first Christmas service, made our first Christingle and had our first Christmas party.
We enjoyed dressing up and taking part in our first nativity. Mrs Daly and Mrs Coffey were so proud.
Well done Felix and Maya for being our good work pupils for this term.
We have had a lovely time decorating the school Christmas tree with our handmade decorations in worship. We also took part in our first dress rehearsal for our nativity.
We have continued our learning about space this week with the text ‘Here comes the aliens’. We have written labels to help the aliens know what things on earth are called as well as thinking about what we would tell an alien about how we keep healthy. We have also made planets, created aliens and weighed space objects.
Well done Evelyn for being our Jackson Award winner this term for being a kind, polite and thoughtful member of the class.
We won Buster’s book club again this term. Well done Ramsey class for all that reading.
We have enjoyed reading the story ‘Whatever Next’. We have acted it out, made space pictures on the computer and built rockets like in the story.
This week we decorated biscuits for Children in Need and enjoyed eating them afterwards.
Some of our star readers so far this term. Well done.
We have been enjoying lots of arts and crafts during our art week. We have created pictures in the style of the artist Piet Mondrian, made firework pictures and rockets as well as divas.
A great start to term two, we won Buster’s book club. We have been trying really hard with our sounds and reading our books.
Our maths and writing has improved lots too.
This week we have learnt our first sounds and have been busy writing them in different ways.
We have been busy learning to recognise our numbers to 10 and beyond.
We enjoyed our welcome service where we performed our starting school poem and received our very first children’s bible. Our harvest festival celebration in the school was lots of fun too.
Our first few weeks at school have been very busy. We have been practising our counting of different objects, learning to recognise and write our names as well as making lots of new friends.
We have had some exciting changes over the summer. Our inside classroom looks very different now. Here is a sneaky peek.
Our outside classroom has had some new additions too.
