Sharing Special Stories 

We have really enjoyed our RE topic this term, Special Stories, We have listened to the story of Noah’s Ark, The Good Samaritan, Adam and Eve and The Boy Who Cried Wolf. W the children listened to the stories beautifully and we had super discussions about the meaning of the stories, We were also able to link some of the stories to our value of the term- honesty. 

We are Creative


Look at our amazing artwork! We have been working extremely hard designing and creating all of this fantastic work linked to our ‘To Infinity and beyond’ topic. We hope you like it 🤩

To Infinity and Beyond


Today we launched our new topic 'To Infinity and Beyond'. We were super excited to watch a news clip discovering a spaceship had crash landed in to our classroom! We soon found out that the spaceship was damaged and QPootle5 the alien needed our help. We had loads of fun using our problem solving skills and trying to fix the rocket 😁 

Higgledy-Piggledy Nativity 


The children sang their hearts out and performed like true stars in our performance of 'Higgledy-Piggledy Nativity'. We were extremely proud of each and every one of them, whether they danced, acted, narrated or sang. They all helped to make the performance magical.

Our new topic ‘Lights and Sirens’


Today we launched our new topic ‘Lights and Sirens’. We arrived at school to find a crime had been committed…someone had stolen our class teddy bears 😬. We had several clues left for us so we became amazing police officers and tried to find out what had happened and it promoted some great conversations. We will find out tomorrow who exactly took the teddies but all clues point to Mr Ridlinton at the moment!

We are very excited about this topic and throughout the term we will be having many different visitors from vets, paramedics and hopefully even a visit from the fire service.

Parent Readers


We were so excited to invite our mummies and daddies to school to share stories with us here in our classrooms. We looked at our favourite stories from our book corner and our teachers read us a story at the end of the session. It was great 😊
