Once Upon A Time!

Footprint Mystery

On Monday we arrived at school to find footprints leading from the classroom! We followed the footprints to find a beanstalk had grown in the library! We then read the story Jack and the Beanstalk and enjoyed completing activities based around our first topic of the year! 

We have enjoyed learning lots of  exciting things this term! We have looked at the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and now we are looking at the story of Little Red Riding hood. 


Goldilocks came into our classroom whilst we were on the track and broke a chair and left an empty bowl of porridge, and Red Riding Hood forgot her red cloak and empty basket! 


We have been using time connectives in our writing to help us write some instructions for making porridge and we even got to try some with Mrs Harrison and Mrs O'Brian in our afternoon sessions. We have made some bear toast using bananas and raisins with Mrs Wainwright and Mrs Clarke, building new beds for Goldilocks and Baskets for Red Riding Hood with Miss Bird and practising our handwriting skills and developing our fine motor skills with a variety of fun activities with Miss Pelling. 

            Paddington in London

We came back into school to find a mystery suitcase and tag had been left on the floor. We peeped inside and discovered that the suitcase belonged to Paddington Bear! He had eaten all of the marmalade but had left us a book about his adventures in London! 


This term we are looking at London and will be learning all about Paddington's adventures in the capital! We will look at capital cities in the United Kingdom, and go back to discover all about the Great Fire of London and how it happened! Look out for all of our exciting adventures this term.

We enjoyed dressing up as animals for our hook day!

Healthy Heart Day! 


We have learnt about Lando Norris the Formula One race car driver! We have looked at where in the world they travel for the different races, written a class letter and taken part in a exercise circuit before designing our own race car and helmet. 

We have had loads of fun taking part in a range of different activities


This term our topic is Supertato!  We will be focusing on the book Supertato, Looking at ways to keep ourselves healthy and safe and also looking at different plants, how things grow and where our food comes from! We look forward to sharing our learning with you. 

We came into school to find that someone had been mean to the vegetables and fruit!

We measured some vegetables using a ruler, recording our results on post it notes!

We discovered it was the Evil Pea! We sorted good adjectives and bad adjectives for our superhero and villain!

We tasted some fruit and ticked whether we liked them or not to design our own fruit kebab!

We have enjoyed going on a science walk around school looking for different plants and flowers. We discussed why some had flowered and some hadn't. We also discussed the signs of spring that we could see. 

We enjoyed making slime for revolting rhymes on World Book Day

We enjoyed an acting workshop on World Book Day!

Book Snuggle! We enjoyed sharing books and having a milkshake

We have created our own super vegetables for our writing to go with the topic of Supertato!  During our computing session we have enjoyed drawing our super veg!
