Week 3 done and dusted!

I can’t believe we have already done three weeks in Year 2: it is flying by already! This week has been another busy one! We have been working hard on our place value knowledge and writing numbers to 100 in Maths and have been focusing on our sentence structure and punctuation in English. We have looked at the four countries that make up the UK in Geography and started our materials topic in Science. Perhaps our messiest lesson this week was our Art lesson, where we explored hot and cold colours – getting most of the paint on our hands by the looks of the pictures!


A wonderfully windy week in Year One

We have worked really hard on our number formation this week and some of us are really getting the hang of it! Forming letters correctly will be the focus next week.

We experienced the wonderful season of Autumn first hand with the incredible wind and intermittent showers with sunshine. We couldn’t let the opportunity go by, so we had some time outside. We decided to collect up and play in our fallen leaves as well as doing a rain dance or two.

In English we have started to write captions from our class book and some children have shown off their beautiful handwriting skills!

Another busy week in Year One!
Have a lovely and rested weekend

Kurling Season back up and running!

We thoroughly enjoyed our first Kurling session of the new season this morning.  Our new recruits were shown the ropes by our experienced players and it wasn’t long before the first (highly competitive) games were underway.  The Autumn term Kurling league will commence next week.  Who will be crowned champion!


Searching for Different Materials

Year 2 started off their new Science topic today by searching for different materials, in and outside the classroom. They looked at different objects, the materials they were made from and considered reasons why this material suited its job. Here they are in action!

Craft Club

I’m super impressed with these wonderful puppets made by the children at Mrs Senyk’s craft club tonight.

Well done Maddie, Lily, Helena and Izzy.  There are still places available, so if any more children would like to join, please have a chat with Mrs Senyk.

Thank you Year 6 & 7

Thank you to all of our past and present Year 6’s who came to join us for pizza and chips tonight. It was great to see you all and hear how you are getting on in your secondary schools. Please, keep in touch!

A week in Year One

We have had a wonderful week in Year One with some very busy bees!

We started by having our launch day on Monday for our new learning area WEATHER WATCH. We explored different seasons and what we would expect to find during each season. In the afternoon we went out to explore the environment around us in the local area, we looked for clues that showed what season it was. We all decided it was definitely Autumn as we found conkers, acorns and fallen leaves.

We have danced our week away making our hand muscles strong and flexible skills during Playdough disco.

We have formed our numbers and practised writing capital letters for writing in lots of different ways and are really trying to work on writing these correctly.

We finished the week learning even more about Liberty bear and her adventures. She got up to mischief in the classroom making a jigsaw and has gone for her first weekend away!

Have a wonderful weekend!
