Our value this half term is “Trust”. This is our reflection area in our classroom at the moment.

In RE we have been learning about what Christians think God is like and why they think Jesus is so important. We have been listening to bible stories to help us answer this such as ‘The Good Samaritan’ and ‘Jesus heals a paralysed man.’ 

Active hour

On Friday 20th November we had HWSPP visit us. The children took part in Archery and Boccia. Both new activities which they hadn’t tried before. They had a great session. See the photos below to see who got balls eye! 


We love playing games and having fun in phonics. This week we have played twister to practice our phase 5 sounds and learnt the read and write the “ou” sound by writing on plasters! 

Pirate Day

We had an amazing pirate day! The children and staff came to school dressed as pirates and took part in lots of pirate activities.

For geography the children learnt how to read a map of the school to be able to find the treasure (gold coins of course!).

In art, children created a treasure map using tea bags and used their geographical knowledge to draw a compass on it.

We also did some pirate dancing and a catwalk to show off our costumes. We had such a fun day! Here are some photos.


We had great fun when Miss Barker brought in a pumpkin.

We wrote down ideas of what we could do with the pumpkin.

We agreed that we wanted to cut into it. We used tweezers, spoons, magnify glasses and plastic knives to explore the parts of the pumpkin.

We improved our vocabulary by using adjectives to describe what the pumpkin felt like on it's outside and inside!


In science, we started off the term by learning about the parts of our body. In English, we have been learning how to label things. We combined both of our skills to write labels and stick them on our bodies. Our friend then took a photo and we uploaded it onto seesaw.
