Jeffy is excited to be part of Fir Class with you!


See you soon!


Miss Kay and Mrs Linehan 

We found some Dragon Eggs! We made a nest for the eggs hoping that the adult dragons will come back for them!

We went back to the woodland area and the eggs had gone! We found some dragon scales and feathers and there was a baby dragon back in the classroom! We haven't found the adult dragons yet!

D&T - we were having a go at threading a needle and stitching a basic running stitch to practice for when we make hand puppets!

Marwell Zoo trip! We had lots of fun and saw lots of animals!

We planted some bulbs in the Autumn so that they will flower in the spring!

In Computing we have been programming Beebots and giving them instructions to move on our maps that we drew.

Geography - We had a walk along Holbein Close and Renoir Close

Science - In science we have been etsting materials and exploring whether they are waterproof or absorbent. We tested using pipettes to make sure the amount of water stayed the same.

Writing - We are looking at retelling fairytales and focusing on 'The Three Little Pigs' in particular. We created this story map as a class. Can the children retell the story?

Pumpkin Carving!

We went on an Autumn walk and explored the falling leaves!

In Science we conducted an experiment to see how much rain fell in Autumn. We places pots around the school to collect the rain water.

In Mathematics we have been comparing numbers to 20 using dienes

Jeffy is all ready for the countdown to Christmas!

History: In history this term we are exploring toys. This week we considered how to play with toys respectfully and we played with a range of toys to explore which was our favourite.

In Mathematics we have been learning how to count in 2's!

Oh no! A UFO has crashed into our classroom! We made predictions on what we think happened and the children came up with some great ideas!

In Mathematics we have been looking at multiplication and we have been using arrays to organise our groups into rows.

In Mathematics we have been counting in 10's!

In Writing we have been using our senses to gather adjectives to describe the alien in our story!

Shape Hunt! We are learning about 2D shapes and we went around the school on a shape hunt! Can the children name the shapes that we saw?

In Gymnastics we have been working on partner balances using some of the equipment. We are working on making sure our toes are pointed!
