  • International week

    Published 17/06/21, by Mimi Adlam

    This week we have been exploring the country of Kenya! 

    The children have been so excited and inspired this week to learn lots of different things about Kenya and the people who live there. We have even been trying to learn phrases in Swahili (the language that they speak). I wonder how many parents/carers have heard the word "Jambo" this week from their child?! It means "Hello".

    In particular this week we have enjoyed being creative with our learning about Kenya. We have been making African sunset scenes and Maasai necklaces. We have also all had a part in helping to create our large scale leopard 'Lenny the Leopard'. We hope to leave this on display outside our classroom for you all to see!

  • Fantastic Finish!

    Published 27/05/21, by Claire Lawlor

    This week we have completed our work on insects from the, ‘All things bright and beautiful’ topic. We finished and published our posters/booklets which we are very proud of. On Thursday for our, ‘Fantastic  Finish’ we enjoyed doing lots of activities which were bug related ie, word searches, anagrams and bug hunting it was great fun!! 

    In Maths we have been learning about addition and subtraction. We have been adding and subtracting double digit numbers which can be quite tricky sometimes but we tried very hard.

    On well being Wednesday we enjoyed making wriggly worms in Art and did some exercise workouts in the playground. We also relaxed to some chill out music.

    I hope you all enjoy your holiday and you will return after half term ready to do some more fantastic learning!!
