Look at what Year One have been doing…

Firstly, I would like to say a huge congratulations to all of Year One! You have made me so proud over the last two weeks with the effort that each and every one of you have put into your learning and the ‘Wriggly Nativity’ :).

Here are a few photographs from some of our lessons and our  reward for being acting and singing superstars – SNOW!

On Friday afternoon, we put all of our learning together and worked in small groups to compete in a class quiz! Each team came up with their own name and took it in turns to be the scribe. They received points for the correct answers and also their ability to work as part of a team. The questions related to our recent maths, phonics and English lessons, as well as spelling high frequency words and numbers in words. The children then swapped boards and marked a different team’s answers to make it fair. The results were tallied up, we counted them in 5s and it was a very close competition! The winning team with 24 points was… the NYC team!


Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, hopefully with some snow!! Just a quick note as well, I appear to be missing a few data collection permission forms. If you can’t see your child on the blog and are unsure if you have given permission for them to feature, please call in at the office or see me.




The First of December

Reception celebrated the first day of December on Friday.

The children came into the classroom and Christmas had arrived; with a Christmas Tree, Santa’s Workshop, and Christmas decorations.  It had even snowed!

The children enjoyed exploring the weather of snow and ice:

We came inside to warm up and enjoyed a drink of hot chocolate.

We then learnt about the birds; Robins with this story:

The children then made Robins using a series of circle shapes:

To finish our day we decorated our Christmas trees; inside and outside.
