We have finished our collage Islands. This linked with our Talk for writing about the Isle of Struay (Katie Morag), also Geographical physical and human features. The children worked in pairs over several weeks.

The children played 'shops' today in maths, counting up the coins needed.

We harvested some of the vegetables we have grown. Children helped with harvesting, washing, chopping, cooking and finally eating!

Some of our frogspawn hatched, the tadpoles have been growing and now we have some froglets!

The children enjoyed a trip to the church as part of our RE topic on places of worship.

We finally got to go for a walk in our local area! We looked at all sorts from our learning this year, but especially 'Human geographical features'

We were dressed as all kinds of heroes today...we talked about how it has been a year for different kinds of superheroes with Corona Virus.

In Science we used all our senses whilst learning the names of some flowers. Whilst you are out and about, notice the different flowers in people's gardens. See if you can find out what they are called.

In RE we have been learning about places of worship, particularly churches, and some artefacts associated with them.

We had a visitor to teach us all about growing plants!

We have done some gardening, weeding, getting compost from the compost bin, then planting seeds. We are keeping an eye on the tadpoles growing too.

As part of history we pretended we lived in the bailey part of the castle, finding out what the people would have been doing.

As part of science topic, we carried out an investigation to see which materials would provide a soft landing for Humpty Dumpty.

We have been learning about castles and we took a trip to the bailey to find out all about the jobs that people who lived there had to do!

We made our own books based on the 'That's not my....' by author Fiona Watt! Here are a few pages for you to see!

We really enjoyed world book day!

Happy Diwali!

To celebrate Diwali we learned some dances with sticks and made delicious Diwali sweets!

We got a class treat for 25 class points - Yay! The children voted for a food treat, so we made bears using bread, butter, jam, banana and raisins.

We are reading a new book 'The Somethingosaur'. In the story, the Somethingosaur cannot find his mummy. We had great fun having a game of hide of seek. Some of us were the Somethingosaur and some of us were his mummy!
We made moving animals.

Aboriginal pictures of Australia

We have been learning how to write a biography in English. Today Bob Bear from our story 'We're going on a bear hunt' came to visit. We asked him lots of questions so that we could learn more about him!

Look at some of the things we have been up to in continuous provision!

In geography we are learning about the seven continents of the world. Today we were learning about Europe!
We painted a self portrait!

Each class have done some self portraits which are on display in the main corridor.

Well done Iguana class, good behaviour choices earned us 25 points and a class treat! The children voted to have food, so we decorated biscuits using pattern ideas we had done in art.

We found out about mammals, we pretended to be some different animals.
