Some of the Year 1's had a lovely, warm afternoon during their woodwork session at the end of last week. They have been focusing on using the tools safely and they created some amazing pieces.
Friday 13 March - We have been able to hold the chicks today. Everyone was able to describe the chicks using lots of great descriptive language. Year 1 were very sensible and we are looking forward to holding them again next week.
World Book Day!
Today we have been completing lots of exciting activities! This morning we had a whole school parade of our amazing outfits and we made reading dens with Year 5! We also made special bookmarks and used puppets to tell magical stories with Year 2! In the afternoon we had some special visitors in the classroom. They read us a story and we enjoyed some delicious treats from Little Red Riding Hood!
Year 1 and Year 2 have been busy using up ingredients before Lent starts to make delicious pancakes. They then wrote instructions on how they made them which were very detailed and included: first, next, after, and lastly.

Year 1 & Year 2 have been looking at the poem ‘Ten Things Found In a Wizard’s Pocket’.
The children worked together to perform the poem using lots of expression and actions. We then used this poem to help us create our own magical poems.
For videos of our performance poetry, see here!
Year 1 have loved looking after the dragon egg that we found in the playground!
Year 1 came to school on Monday to find their classroom in chaos! Tables and chairs had been knocked over and our dragon egg had disappeared! Year 1 have written imaginative dragon stories this week, which we will send to the magical land of dragons for Zog to read. We hope our stories will persuade Zog to return.
Encourage your child to share their stories with you because they are AMAZING!
Home Learning - Some children have managed to create their castle this weekend and we are delighted to discuss and display them in our classroom.
We went to the church on Monday 11 November with Father David to learn about the celebration of mass. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and it allowed them to ask questions and develop their understanding immensely. Here are some pictures of our time in the Church....
