Useful Information

PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and the children are expected to have their PE kits in school.

Forest School is on a Wednesday afternoon and the children will need a change of clothes, waterproof coat and wellies.

Computing - the children will be using active learn and purple mash in some of their lessons.  Both of these can be accessed out of school (at home or in the library etc).  Practising Maths games and exploring some of the activities in Purple Mash will help their learning. The children will soon bring home their login details although these are the same as last year.

Welcome to Autumn 1 


This week we are reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.



Chocolate has even made it into our Maths lesson!  The children have voted for their favourite chocolate bar (lots of chocolate nibbling!) We created a results table and also used descriptive vocabulary to describe each chocolate.


Using our results we then created a bar chart.

Place Value 


In Maths this week we are learning about Place Value. This is where we explore the value of each digit in a number. We have been using Base 10 equipment to help us. If you would like to know more ask Mrs Davies or Mrs Ratcliffe! 

Chocolate Mania

Chocolate Mania is our topic for Learning Journey and we have some exciting activities planned.

This week in Music we created and performed our own musical score. We used our body parts to create the music. It was a challenge to keep in time and make sure all the parts were played together. Watch out for next weeks performance, we are using percussion instruments!


This week in Gymnastics we learnt about leaping. We learnt the difference between a leap and a jump, practiced and then gave each other feedback. Next week we will be perfecting our leaping and learning about patch balancing. By the end of this half term we will be creating a sequence with all we have learnt. Keep checking this page for more updates! 

Forest School


Today in forest school we explored the site. We learnt to use a hand saw safely. We got up close to a  grass snake! We made dens and much much more. Please ask you child what they enjoyed in the forest today.
