Class 1  We have really enjoyed coming back together again after our Christmas break.  We are incredibly proud of our new starters, who have settled into Class 1 beautifully this week.  We have started our new topic  'Who helps us?', and the children have been sharing their impressive homework with the class.  

Class 2  have been busy during the holidays and shared their experiences in their writing as well as by sharing their Superheroes ‘brilliant beginnings’. We have welcomed Mrs Hodgson and worked hard for Mrs Pattinson and Mrs Dalgleish, showing respect and friendship.

Class 3 have had an excellent start to the term and demonstrated great attitudes towards their learning. We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing all the hard work put into the Brilliant Beginnings, so thank you for your support at home. In literacy we have begun to explore The Stone Age Boy and enjoyed doing some hot seating of the main character. 

Class 4 have been very busy this week showing their Brilliant Beginnings about Victorians, we were very impressed by the range of activities that the children shared and the knowledge they have already gained.  During PE with Mr Rigg the children showed impressive skills and thoroughly enjoyed their first session of Tag Rugby.

Class 1  We are incredibly proud of the children in Class 1 for putting on their first nativity play.  They enjoyed it so much that they asked if they could do it again the next day! The children said that they have enjoyed making baubles this week. They have also had fun dressing up in Christmas themed role play clothes and doing Christmas meditation.  The children have taken a turn daily, to unwrap a book from our advent calendar- they have found this very exciting!

Class 2  We loved the pantomime, especially when Danny was silly!  We have enjoyed doing our DT, making Santa's sleighs and split pin Christmas characters.  We have liked practicing for our Christmas play.

Class 4 have enjoyed singing, acting and all round performing in front of our parents and other family members this week. We have all enjoyed the pantomime 'Snow White' because it had lots of funny parts and Danny was hilarious. We had a great sing-a-along on the bus too! We have been busy finishing our story about 'The Great Kapok Tree' and illustrating our writing.

Class 1  have had a visit from Rachel (NISCU) today and we learnt lots about the nativity to help our learning about the true meaning of Christmas.  Rachel was impressed by how much we already knew – we know the people in the story and who plays them in our play too. 

Class 2  have enthusiastically stepped into 'December' this week as we prepare for Christmas.  They have impressed the staff reading and spelling many words from their age-related word lists.  In maths we have begun work in new units of money in Year 2 and shape in Year 1 (perfect on the run up to Christmas).  The pupils continue to work hard learning their lines and songs for our play, keep up the good work class 2.

In Literacy, the children have been narrating their own stories about 'The Great Kapok Tree'. They have been trying hard to add direct speech. Lastly, they have enjoyed trying on costumes and getting their faces painted for their first dress rehearsal. 

Class 1  This week we enjoyed making and eating delicious apple toasties in the woods.  We retold the story of 'Farmer Duck,' using our story map to help.  Our use of expression was fantastic when we performed the story!

Class 2 We have liked adding and taking away in maths. Learning our lines and singing the songs for the play.  We have enjoyed seeing our friends, teachers and going to the after-school clubs.   

In Class 3 we have enjoyed dark and light shadows in Science.  We have also enjoyed learning about the Lake District in Geography for our non-chronological reports.

At the woods, we have learnt how to make a fire and played team building games. In History, we learnt about Mayan life and cultures. We have been trying out for gymnastics with Rachel.

Class 3 Top effort all round this week! Class 3 have written amazing letters to the RSPCA seeking help about Mr and Mrs Twit’s cruelty towards animals.  Such exciting vocabulary; they would persuade anyone to help!  The children have also worked hard in Geography showing fantastic skills and knowledge.

Everyone enjoyed a virtual visit from Jeff Kinney (Diary of a wimpy kid author/illustrator).
