Year 1 Autumn Term

Autumn Term in Year 1

We have had a very busy first term in Year One.  We particularly enjoyed our visit from Bird World last week.  As part of our topic this term, we have been reading stories about owls, including "WOW!" said the Owl.  So we were particularly excited to see and learn more about Mozart, the Bird World owl.

Also, we learnt more about different groups of animals including birds, mammals and reptiles and some of us were very brave and stroked the snake!  A highlight of the visit was when the Macaw flew over our heads.

At the beginning of the year we found out information about dinosaurs.  We looked at fossils and during our work on Mary Anning, we made our own fossils out of clay.  Also, we had fun using drama to act out 'The dinosaurs are having a party' when we were paid a visit from The Big Foot Theatre Company.  We also made our own cave paintings using chalks.

Great Year 6 Bake Off

What a fantastic day for Children in Need! First of all I would like to say another big thank you to all of the children (and I am sure parents) who spent a great deal of time baking their show stoppers and cakes for the bake sale. Another big thank you if you brought in some cakes this morning. We managed to raise over £186 just from the bake sale! The finalists for the show stoppers were:

  • Faith Hill and Chloe Blake in 6J
  • Jonathan Coleville in 6P 
  • Brooke Hockerday in 6C

The whole school put money in each classes boxes and Jonathan ended up winning! Overall (as a year group) we raised over £250. A big thank you to all parents who gave children money or helped buy/bake cakes. This is a fantastic total and will go towards an amazing charity.

Below are some pictures of everything year 6 have got up to today!

Settling into life in year 2!

We have been in year 2 for an entire half term already - time flies when you're having fun!

We have been lucky enough to have lots of different things going on.

The whole school got to do lots of drama with Charlie from the Big Foot Theatre Company which was lots of fun. We did drama activities about going through a magic door then we wrote our own stories. 

Year 2 got to go on a trip to Windsor Castle - the Queen wasn't there but we were told that Prince Philip was! Some of the children were lucky enough to see the changing of the guards too which was very exciting. 

Year 6 came down as part of book week and they read us the poems they had written based on Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes. We had a great time listening to them and we even read them some of our work. 

Now we are back for the last half of the Autumn Term and we are already practising for our Christmas Production.
