We’ve been invaded!

Look who came to visit Class 3 this week! We had great fun making our friends for Beegu and then creating names and describing them. We don’t think they can stay in Class 3 forever though so we imagine they’ll be looking for new homes very soon….!

Autumn fun

We had lots of fun learning about Autumn today. We made our Autumn pictures using sticks and leaves.

Busy Bees in Class 3

We are busy learning about addition and subtraction to 10 in Class 3. We have used the part, part whole model to record our number sentences and we will be learning our number bonds to 10 next week.

We have been using Farmer Duck in our whole class reading sessions and have enjoyed joining in with reading the text. We are looking forward to finding out what happens to the farmer over the rest of the week.

In DT we have made axles and we will be using these next week to make our own space buggies.


A very belated but warm welcome to Year One! The start of term seems a very long time ago already however we have been so impressed as to how quickly and well the children have settled into their new routine. A huge thank you to you all for your support.

Our ‘Out of this World’ Topic is well underway after starting with a mysterious spaceship crash! We have been looking at the book ‘The Way Back Home’in our English sessions which also strangely involved a rocket crash! We have also linked it to our Geography theme, learning about aerial views and our own way back home. We shall soon be moving onto Science where we shall be looking at all sorts of materials.We have been whizzing through our maths sessions too, learning about counting and ordering numbers. In amongst all this we have fitted in phonics, guided reading, PE, RE and handwriting to name but a few! The children have been amazing getting used to the new routines and structures, well done to all!

A reminder to keep practising the phonic reading words, stuck in the red books in their book bags, it really does help them!

Thank you again for all you support so far, we look forward to getting to know you as the year goes on!
