Look back with pride and forward with confidence


Christmas Jumper playtime fun!


Last week, we read the story 'After the Storm' by Nick Butterworth. In English, we verbally composed a sentence to report on the weather in the story. We tried to use adjectives to describe the weather. This also linked to our Science and Geography work about the seasons.

Even though some may have been a little shy, they all tried so hard! Here are some of the videos!

More Science!!!!


Today we had fun watching the explosions when the teacher's put some Mentoes in a bottle of Coca Cola!!!

Then we made fireworks using water and oil!!!!


We have been learning about the 4 seasons and what types of weather we could expect in Britain in each season.

Today we focused on Autumn. All the children enjoyed taking a walk around the school grounds to identify signs of Autumn.

We found apple and sycamore trees. Everyone had to find a green, yellow, orange and brown leaf! We observed how the leaves on the trees were green, but the leaves on the ground weren't. Finally, we described leaves using adjectives like "crunchy" and "crispy".

1CW welcome

We can't wait to see you all in September! Have a lovely summer!

Transition Art

If you were unable to make it to the Year 1 Transition events, you may want to create the art at home!

1. Cut up squares of coloured paper (we used tissue paper, but any will do).

2. Create a mosaic pattern by sticking the squares onto paper.

3. Draw a picture of yourself, cut it out and stick it onto your mosaic!

Bring your mosaic into school in September so it can join all the others!
