Learn Its

As usual, Learn Its will be sent home every Friday and the children will be tested the following Friday. Your child's Learn Its will be the same for the whole term. We do not expect your child to learn them off by heart straighaway, but would like their score to improve each week, so by the end of the term they know them off by heart. Please can we also ask that your child keeps revisiting the Learn Its given since the beginning of the year.

Week 1

Whole School Art Day

Today we learnt all about Yayoi Kusama. She is a Japanese pop artist known as the Princess of Polka Dots. Due to a mental illness, she hallucinates and see the world in dots. From a young age and against her parents’ wishes she pursued an art career, spending time in New York City in the 1950s. As a school we created an installation inspired by Yayoi Kusama. Year 2s job was to dot the pumpkins. As you can see the children loved learning about Yayoi Kusama and installation art. The result was really amazing!  

Week 2

Back into the full swing of school this week. 

We have been programming beebots in ICT. In literacy we have been getting to know our new story 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit', below are some pictures of us sequencing the story. In maths we have been identifying and making equal groups. We had a great music lesson with Miss Toole are have been learning different rythms. 

Week 4

Sorry for no updates last week, unfortunately both of us were at home poorly. We missed the children terribly and are delighted to be back with them this week, enjoying a very busy week, packed full of learning.

In science we have been learning about life cycles. In maths we have started the week by multiplying by 2, 5 and 10 and we have moved on the division at the end of the week. 

In literacy we have been had a busy week of skills, learning about adjectives, adverbs, commas in a list and possessive apostrophise. 

In RE our new unit is Parables and Miracles and we started with The Parable of the Talents, you can see us acting it out. 

We have also been busy starting our preparations for our CLASS ASSEMBLY, which will be next week on THURSDAY 3RD JANUARY at 9am, please come along. 

Week 5

Chinese New Year

Years 1 and 2 have had a wonderful day learning and celebrating Chinese New Year! We are so lucky to have several families from Hong Kong in Key Stage 1 and today they shared with us the reason why it is an important festival in their culture. We learnt the story of Nian and how he was scared away by firecrakers and the colour red, which is now an important colour during this festival. A big thank you to Miss Gould for a choreographing a wonderful taditional dance for the children to learn in our P.E. lesson. This afternoon the children took part in a range of activities including creating lantern, writing using chinese symbols, using chopsticks and making paper chains. To end such a fantastic day the children tried some chinese food. 


Happy Chinese New Year! 

Our Class Assembly

Thank you al for coming! As I am sure you will agree the children were AMAZING!


Week 6

Week 6 has been asessment week and the children have been demonstrating what we know so we know exactly what it is e need to teach them next term. 

We have also spent our time planning our very own versions of The Tale of Peter Rabbit which I hop to share with you next week .

In RE we learnt about The Parable of the Prodigal Son - below are the photos of the children acting it out. We also learnt about the miracle, The Calming of the Storm. The children created some beautiful art works which include some key vocabulary from the miracle. 

Week 7

What a busy week we have had.

In science the children were measuring their heart rates before and after exercise. The children have finished writting their very own stories based on The Tale of Peter Rabbit. We have been super impressed and as you can see they are quite remarkable. I have loaded some below and will add more. If your childs isn't there and you would like to see it do come and ask. In RE we learnt about The Healing of the Centurion Servant and acted it out before writing it in our books. 

It was also well-being week this week. We completed many activities from practising mindfulness to enjoying breathing in fresh air and grounding ourselves, to making friendship bracelets.
