Term 3

In term 3 our topic was transport.  We had an exciting lorry visit from Fowler Welsh Lorry Company.  We all got to sit in the driver’s seat, saw where Mr Watson sleeps on a long drive and we even learnt the sign to get him to make the horn sound! We wrote thank you messages in our handmade created paper lorry card, as we had such a great time!  We also learnt about our local area and how to cross the road safely.

In maths we have been learning about time, number work, adding and subtraction. What busy little workers we are! 

The lorry was lots of fun and we were so excited to climb up the high steps and sit in the driver’s seat!

We asked Mr Watson lots of questions and he told us all about the lorry works and what it is like being a lorry driver.

We have been using our outside learning area to practise our writing.

We were busy using our outdoor whiteboard to design space rockets and label our pictures.

In maths, one week, we were learning about 10s and 1s. This group were working with Miss Branagan to make numbers using 10s and 1s counting sticks.

We have challenge boards or tables in our classrooms and we work together to solve mathematical puzzles and problems.

We also really enjoyed representing numbers we could go all the way up to 20!

We designed and made or own boats look how creative we are!

Wow! Pilot Florence. Well some of these homework projects were huge!

Lots of work and time went into our homework projects! Thank you to all who helped.

Also during term 3 Miss Williams got married and now Mrs King! Congratulations to Mr & Mrs King.

Term 2

In Term 2 we learnt about Diwali, Remembrance Day, Guy Fawkes and Christmas traditions. We are very lucky to be learning and performing a Nativity play, which the teachers are incredibly proud of! It is so much fun! In our free flow sessions we have been celebrating special events. We have been getting creative with practical tasks as well as practising our writing. The teachers are really proud of the children’s progress since September.

In maths we have been learning about number work, counting, adding and subtraction. What busy little bees we are! 

Here are some photos of us having lots of fun whilst learning:

During Diwali we made some beautiful rangoli patterns to welcome everybody into school.

We have been learning outside about lots of winter topics and snow!

We enjoyed learning about Autumn and comparing it to winter.

We then went outside and explored the winter weather!

We have been writing on our brand new outdoor table.

We used our outdoor role play stable, masks and full sized characters to act out the Nativity story.


We have also loved acting indoors in our role paly areas and dressing up!

We are very much excited to be performing a Nativity show for our grown ups.

We wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Have a great break and we will see you back on Thursday 4th January 2018.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Term 1

Wow! Term 1 nearly finished already!

The children have really impressed all of the Year 1 grown-ups with their hard work and positive attitudes towards our learning. We are also especially proud of how the children have been so happy coming into school each morning and how much more independent they have become, even in only a few weeks.  Well done to all of the children in Year 1!

We are busy learning phonics in the morning as well as maths. In the afternoon we are enjoying our free flow topic time.

We have learnt about toys from the past and how different materials can be used for different purposes!

Here are some photographs of the fun we have been having:

We retold the story of the three little pigs.

Oh no the straw has just blown away!

It is hard to build a house out of sticks! It can easily be knocked down.


Bricks make it look easy


In maths, we have been looking at how numbers are made.


We love looking forward to learning and trying new things!

We are looking forward to more exciting learning in term 2! If you would like more information on what we will be learning in term 2, please look at our Curriculum Newsletter.

Have a great break and we will see you back on Monday 30th October.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
