Autumn 2, Week 1

This week in class 2, we have been learning all about World War 1. We started the week with an introduction about why World War 1 started and the countries that were involved. We then looked at what the trenches were and how the soldiers used them. We created our own trenches using mud in our outdoor area. We have also learnt about what children did during the war and the clothing men and women wore depending upon their jobs. We ended the week today with a remembrance day were we reflected and completed some activities around the school and in church.

As well as learning all about World War 1, class 2 have been completing some of their quizzes. These will continue next week.


-      All children will need a packed lunch on Wednesday- if they are going to mini Olympics.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

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.

On Wednesday we learnt all about the festival of Diwali by making some clay Diwa lamps, making some samosas in the curriculum kitchen and even trying out some Bollywood moves in our PE lesson!

We ended the week with a Remembrance Day themed day today. The children have tried out different workshops throughout the school, linked to RE values and WW1 history…have a look at some of the photos on the school gallery page very soon!


. Based on the children's interest, week we will be starting a short unit on dinosaurs next week. Have a look over the weekend to see if you can find out some interesting dinosaur facts in preparation.

Class 5 Autumn 2 Week 1

The children have worked really hard this week and have managed well with all the different changes to our usual timetable.

We have been focusing our afternoon lessons on Topic, learning all about WW1. All the children have been thoroughly engaged and involved in discussing different aspects of the war. We have used photographs taken during the war to help us to truly start to understand what it must have been like.

Today, on our learning journey of ‘Peace and Reconciliation’, the children have had a chance to reflect on conflicts, refugees, remembering the brave people who have fought in wars before now and those who are still fighting today. Most children participated really well and shared their deepest thoughts and prayers. Thank you Class 5.

It has been a very reflective day and I’m sure your child will be able to tell you all about it.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Walker J

Autumn 1 Week 8

Dear Parents,

We had a busy week in Class 3! In DT we tasted different dips such as salsa, hummus and guacomole. We talked about the ingredients we might find in those dips and discussed whether they were healthy or not. We then made our own guacomole dip which was lots of fun! We used fresh ingredients such as avocados, red onions, tomatoes, coriander and lemon We really enjoyed tasting our dip, it was delicious! Thank you to everyone who brought in a donation towards our dip making ingredients!

This week we also wrote a class poem using rhyming words and calligrams. We solved some more division number problems and we made some poppies for our big school remembrance display!

We hope you all have a lovely and restful half term and look forward to seeing you when we come back!
