Autumn 2, Week 1

Welcome back everyone, we hope you have all had a restful and happy half term last week. This week in Class One, we have been learning all about fireworks! We began the week with a journey back in time, 400 years ago where we met a rather scary character.... Guy Fawkes! The children loved finding out some child friendly facts about the Gunpowder Plot and took great pleasure in acting out the story, complete with a Guy, King James and some soldiers. Ask us about the Gunpowder Plot at home, to see what we can remember!

As well as our history learning, we have also been using our art skills this week, using printing techniques to make some beautiful firework pictures, been writing onomatopoeias in writing to think about fireworks sounds and in number work, we have been putting 2 amounts together, to do some simple addition.

We hope you all have a safe and happy fireworks night. Next week is assessment week for Year One they will be taking part in lots of quizzes and fun tasks to see what they have learnt so far. For reception, it’s a normal fun week! We are all looking forward to Remembrance celebrations on Monday and Pudsy day on Friday too!


  • Thank you also for some of the lovely home-learning we have had in! We hope you have all had a new home-learning sheet in your child's book bag this week; if anyone is missing a home-learning grid, please let us know in class.
  • You may have noticed a new face in Class One today and yesterday!  This is because we are very lucky to have our lovely student teacher joining us in Class One at the moment, called Miss Wenlock! Miss Wenlock is currently studying to become a teacher at the University of Hertfordshire and will be helping us in Class One every Thursday and Friday in the run up to Christmas. She will then be back with us in March for a block placement for a half term, working alongside the Class One staff. She has made a fantastic start and the children are very excited to have a new adult in class so feel free to say hello at the gate if you see her! Enjoy your weekend everyone and see you all on Monday!
