Should you loose your topic homework card, you can find an electronic version of the card on the school website here.


Remote Education 

If your child is self-isolating at home (due to Covid symptoms or a positive Covid test result) but are well enough to continue with their schoolwork, then we will support them by providing remote learning through our online platforms and MS Teams. For detailed information on the policies and procedures we follow in such cases, please refer to our school website-key information-remote education section.


Friendship necklaces

This week we talked about our friends and family and what we like to do with them. Then we made friendship necklaces for our friends with our names on! Here are some friends who made necklaces for each other!

Baking fun!

Baking is done on Mondays and Thursdays with our key person in groups of 5 children at a time. So far we have baked with 4 groups of 5 children. We have had lots of fun measuring the ingredients, using equipment such as sieves and whisks and most importantly licking the spoons after all the mixture has gone into the cake cases! See some of our photos from our baking sessions so far! 

Take a look at how we developed our own learning!!

We started off by reading the story of the 3 little pigs and we had been encouraged to retell the story using the finger puppets in the story snuggles corner! Then Imogen had a great idea! She went to the message centre and made tickets for the show! She gave out her tickets for her show and the children pulled up chairs to watch her. This was when we decided to get out our 'talking and thinking floorbook' where we discussed how we could develop Imogen's idea even further! We decided to move the puppet theatre onto the stage where we had more space, create a banner for the show, spotlights for the stage, make a ticket office and sell refreshments such as popcorn, biscuits and drinks! Louis even suggested we have fireworks going off after the show then he made his own fireworks! The boys and girls made the refreshments at the playdoh area and even wrote the price list for on the ticket office! Take a look at our ideas from our floorbook to develop the show and our photos to create it!

National Poetry Day

We had a wonderful time on National Poetry Day. We chose some of our favourite rhymes from the magic bag and had fun singing them. We also learnt a new poem and performed it with actions. It was all about the three bears that Goldilocks had been to visit. We even found out that the person who writes a poem is called a poet.

National Poetry Day

We have been learning about our bodies- making skeletons and painting our self portraits

2 weeks of full time school!

The children have now completed 2 weeks in school of full-time schooling! This week we talked about how we look and how we are different from each other! We painted self-portraits of ourselves which are now proudly displayed on the wall! We even played with dressing up clothes to change our appearances and learn to take photos of each other in curiosity corner! We also talked about how we are special and made portraits using natural materials in our woodland area! Take a look at our photographs!

We have started school! Look what we have been doing!
