This week we concluded our learning about space and what an exciting time we have had.

We have been looking at halving and doubling in maths and been writing about 'Baboon on the Moon' and 'Aliens love underpants' in Literacy.Alongside this we have been searching for real and 'alien' words in alien slime and we have had to use space bugs to help us halve objects.

We have listen to Holst 'The Planets' specifically 'Mars' the children discussed how the music made them feel, the children decided to use their bodies to show the pitch change in the music, this led them to wanting to create their own music. In PE we have been looking at controlling the ball with our feet, stopping the ball, aiming the ball and passing the ball in a controlled way to a partner.

The children took ownership of their classroom display and have created not only created a space rocket for their display but also a moon using papier mache and paint, it looks fantastic and the children are really pleased with how their room looks.

In addition to our space learning we went on a winter walk due to the hard frost which we saw, we explored the sound of walking on frosty grass adn the children took iPads and magnifying glasses with them to capture their view of winter, the children realised that they can make marks in the ice using their hands, we talked about how our breath can be seen because its warm in the cold air and how our hands make prints in a similar way because they are warm. The children looked at their photos and in their words 'They're magnificent'. Welldone RS!

It's getting chilly

We have started our new term with buckets of enthusiasm and the chldren have been excited to get back into their learning.

This week we started with tennis taster sessions, some of the children enjoyed these so much that the following day the children informed me that they had booked onto the tennis club, which is great to hear.

We have also had our homework project showcase, the effort and hard work which have gone into them is incredible. Welldone everyone and thankyou to all who came.

We continued our learning in literacy creating an even larger bank of vocabulary ready for our writing, in maths we looked at addition, the children loved addition that much that we created a challenge table, the children loved creating their own addition sentences and solving them. Welldone RS!

We also begun our Big Write sessions, this week we had to melt Ana's heart. The children created a potions with very creative ingredient- a splash of sunshine, a dash of spring and a couldren full of warm hugs. In PE this term we have begun to look at Ball Skills, we used our phonics this week as we had to sound out a word which each roll of the ball to a partner before blending the sounds together.

The Snowman

This week we have been looking at all things 'The Snowman', it has been a truely wonderful week eploring this wonderful story. in our Literacy we have been begining to write short captions about the characters in the snowman and we have also been labeling the different parts of him. We created a list of vocbaulary to describe the setting and explored the feeling of ice to help us generate some wow words which it definatly did, for example sparkly, cold, frosty, slippery, shiny, wet and two children said 'translucent and transparent' which stimulated great discussion.

We have been looking at 3D shapes in maths and trying to find spheres, cubes, cuboids, cones, pyramids and cylinders around out school, we have also beeing looking at which shapes slide, which rol and which do neither and why.

We also had our christmas party nad say a very special visitor. It has been a truely magical week which has been packed with work and fun.


This week we have our Nativity performances and are very excited to show our parents and carers how hard we have worked. Also this week we are going to be looking at the story 'The Snowman' and in maths we are looking at 3D shapes, learning how to name and describe them.

Christmas is Beginning

We have begun to create our Christmas Hoop, we have been using our fine motor skills by dipping sections of string and wool in PVA glue and wrapping it around balloons to create a sphere shape. In PE we have moved on to Gymnastics and have begun to use the equipment to balence on, make body shapes on, jump off and travel along.
