This week Mrs Stone's and Mrs Robinson's groups have been revisiting all the phonics taught so far. Mrs Cliffe's group have been learning the new tricky words little,what and out.

Drawing Club

We have been reading the story Dear Zoo this week.

We made our own page for the story, with a flap hiding the animal.

We also designed our own scary animal.


This week we have learnt about sharing amounts. 


This week we have been discussing the word fellowship and its meaning. We all know that it means together, we talked about how we are together as a class, as one big team. 

Physical Development

We have been continuing to practise our bat and ball skills. We have also been practising our Dance From the Heart.

Understanding the World

We had a fantastic visit to Blackpool Zoo, finishing our topic of animals. We explored the enclosures and animals, recapping our learning about extinct animals, fossils, habitats and  maps! A fantastic trip and the children were totally golden, showing their excellent listening skills and beautiful manners.

Forest School

This week we read the story of Firey Fox again and discussed the ways we keep safe around the fire. We worked in pairs to prepare our campfire quesadillas. We organised ourselves to spread the tomato sauce and cheese on the tortillas. We watched Mrs Corbett light the fire and discussed how the fire is started. The quesadillas were fried in a pan on the fire. They were delicious!

We also had time for our own play and showed great communication, teamwork and imagination.

#30 Days Wild

As a school we are going to take part in a celebration of everything nature has to offer. This is an initiative set up by The Wildlife Trust. In June, we will be providing opportunities for all children to experience and learn about the wildlife on their doorstep, helping to nurture happier, healthier children, and create allies for our precious natural neighbours.
