Autumn term 2018




On the Move – Autumn 2018

We have had a very busy start to the term! We went outside to find out how to make things or ourselves move and used the PE equipment, Trim Trail , Adventure playground and the bikes and scooters. It was a very active afternoon with lots of discussion about whether the children were pushing  or pulling to make something move.

Summer 2018 – Our school pet

Class One have been busy sharing information about their pets as well as finding out about our school pet. The children enjoyed taking Pickles the tortoise outside onto the school field. They watched him very carefully as he explored the grass and talked about his special features. We will be taking him out again very soon and will see how he likes his new outdoor home in the quiet area. IMG_9507 IMG_9508 IMG_9509 IMG_9510 IMG_9511 IMG_9512 IMG_9514 IMG_9515

Walk on the Wild Side

Class One enjoyed a trip to Cotswold Wildlife Park to find out all about the different animals and their habits. The children were very excited and were keen to observe the animals in the park. We had found out about the ‘Big Five’ and the children were very fortunate to see lions, rhinos and leopards. The children listened carefully to the talk about the animals and were able to ask questions as well as offer ideas.

We are now busy finding out about the different animals and will learn about their physical structure, looking at the similarities and differences between the animals. Later on we will find out about their basic needs, their habitats and how they change from babies into adults. IMG_9291

Spring Term 2018 – Fire! Fire!

Class One have had a very exciting start to the term. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the drama session where they found out all about the Great Fire of London. They used movements, actions , dance and rhymes to explore how  the fire started, why it spread and how the people of London tried to put out the fire.

The Explorer Dome

Class One had great fun learning about their bodies in the Explorer Dome. Once we had crawled through the tunnel the children found out about the skeleton and their internal organs. They listened really well and answered lots of questions.

We are now looking forward to finding out about food and how to keep healthy. 


Autumn Term – All About Me

Welcome to the start of the Autumn Term in Class One.

Everyone is settling in well and we are all getting to know each other.

Our theme this term is ‘All About Me’ and the children have really enjoyed finding out about the different parts of their bodies, both on the outside as well as learning about some of the organs on the inside! We all enjoy taking part in our skeleton dance and doing the actions!

This term the children will also learn about the different senses as well as finding out about how they change as they get older. A visit from ‘The Explorer Dome’ later on this term will be something to look forward to as we learn more about our fascinating bodies.

Summer Term – Island Life

IMG_7179Class One enjoyed exploring the school grounds looking for different types of plants. They used an identification sheet and really enjoyed examining the leaves and flowers with the magnifying glasses! The children were really keen to find out the different names of the plants and trees and shared their ideas with each other. We are all looking forward to finding out more about the plants around the school and learning about how they grow.

Spring 2017 – Once Upon a Time

The children in Class One were very excited when they saw the doorway to the classroom had be changed into the castle doors, complete with a portcullis! They have spent time working with their talk partners, thinking about what they know about castles and what they would like to find out.

We all had great fun when we took part in the ‘Castles’ workshop. The children marched into the hall and found out about how castles were built, where they were built and who lived in them. All the children took an active part in the workshop and found out lots of answers to their questions, as well as learning new information. We are all looking forward to using a range of history skills to find out more about the past.

The children have also been thinking about ‘Fairy Tales’ as part of their work in English. Many of these tales start with ‘Once Upon a Time’ and lots of these stories are set in castles.
