Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith


Meet the Teacher Powerpoint

Lunar New Year 

The children have been very curious about Lunar New Year. They have asked lots of interesting questions and amazed Dr Inglis by knowing where China was on the globe. During this topic, the children have tried some Chinese writing, tasted Chinese food and pretended they ran a Chinese restaurant. We have also learnt the story of “The Great Race”. The children enjoyed acting out the story as a class and also used the figures in the small world to retell the story.


In Acorns we were very excited about Christmas! We started by working as a team to decorate the classroom; we put the tree up and tinsel was stuck up everywhere! We wrote letters to Santa and thought about what food we would want to eat on Christmas day. We linked our learning to the season of winter and especially enjoyed exploring painting in the snow! We completed lots of counting activities linked to Christmas and even had a daily visit from Bobby the elf! We also enjoyed a visit to church to help Reverend Chris find all the Nativity characters and we also loved our trip to the pantomime. What a busy end to the term it was!

The Jolly Postman

The last few weeks we have been learning about the Jolly Postman. We created story maps and thought about who the Jolly Postman may visit next. We have enjoyed spending time in our role play area which has been a post office. We have been writing letters and putting them in the post box. The children decided they wanted to send a real letter home, so each wrote a letter, bought a stamp from Trudy in the office and we all walked to the post box in Northaw to post our letters. We cannot wait to receive them at home!


We have had a great topic of learning about hats. Our focus text was Paddington. We learnt how Paddington kept a sandwich under his hat and read several of his books. We then made our own sandwiches and decided if we wanted marmalade or jam. In the creative corner and construction area we made our own hats. We also wore a bike helmet as we took part in a Balancability Run by the Hertford and Ware School Sports Partnership.


We have been loving our new topic which is Superheroes. We have had Superhero HQ set up and have enjoyed dressing up as different superheroes. We have been reading a variety of superhero books including the “Supertato” books. We have created wanted posters and tried to swash evil pea!

Autumn Days

In our autumn days topic we learnt about the season of autumn and talked about the changes which happen during autumn. We spent lots of time outside especially in the forest area looking at all the changes. We made autumn crowns and went on a nature hunt. In our writing sessions we learnt the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and then enjoyed acting it out using the masks. Our cooking session was baking bread, we liked kneading the dough and especially enjoyed eating it. Eli said “This is the best bread I have ever tasted!”

The Colour Monster

This week we have been thinking about our emotions. We have talked about what makes us feel these emotions. We have then taken part in a range of different activities all based on colours and feelings. Have a look at the photos below to see what we have been up to.

The Colour Monster

In our first week of school we have been exploring all the areas of the classroom. Here are some photos of us. 

Marvellous Me

Our first topic has been “Marvellous Me”. One of the activities we have done is making our face onto a pitta pizza. We then enjoyed eating them!

As part of our topic of “Marvellous me” we talked about who we live with. We then drew a picture to show this. They are on display in our classroom.
