Autumn Term

Friday 16th November 2018

Today was Children in Need Day. We wore spotty outfits and had cakes at break time! We also did some English work which linked nicely to our Children in Need! We needed to change adjectives into adverbs to describe what Pudsey was doing!

Monday 15th October 2018

This week we have been learning about The Gingerbread Man. We have sequenced the story and then did some drama to retell the story.

Wednesday 3rd October 2018

Today we received a poem and a box of resources. We needed to make 3D glasses to find out about the link between knowledge and skills. When we had finished we looked at a special slide and found out that Knowledge + Skills = Understanding! We are going to try hard to use this in our lessons!

Tuesday 25th September 2018

In our English lessons we have started to look at Poetry. We started by looking at how a poem looks on the page and then did some performance poetry. Here are some photos of us performing the poem ‘At the Zoo!’

Tuesday 18th September 2018

We have been learning about how a two digit number is made up of tens and ones. We call this place value. We played a game with our partner to see how quickly we could get to 100!

...and in Year 1...

Summer Term

Friday 18th May 2018

This week Primrose class have been busy watching their bean plants grow.

We wrote bean diaries and couldn't believe how quickly they've grown.


We now have healthy runner beans with roots, stems and luscious leaves!

Friday 20th April 2018

What a busy start to the Summer term we have had! We had a wonderful introduction to our new topic 'I'm Alive' as we enjoyed making our very own terrariums (miniature gardens). In maths we were learning how to tell the time to the hour and half hour and we are zooming along with our phase 5 phonics. In English we are exploring free verse poetry and are learning how to compose our own colour poems.

Spring Term

Friday 23rd March 2018

Primrose class had another busy week! We have been enjoying poetry in English and exploring rhyming couplets. We had a go at composing our own short poems in groups.

We also really enjoyed our trip to the church for our Easter Service where we shared our beautiful artwork to the school and our parents.

In DT we were using the plans that we made to create our final roly polys. Mrs Neal could not believe how confident and independent we were!

Friday 16th March 2018

This week Primrose class took part in a drama workshop. This was based on a jungle adventure. We wrote some descriptive sentences using our senses and also composed our own adventure stories. We were also very busy practising for our Sharing Assembly this week.

Friday 9th March 2018

This week we have been exploring subtraction in maths - counting back on a number line from 20 and by using tens frames. We also had a really fun Design & Technology lesson where we joined wheels to  axles using different joining techniques!

Friday 2nd March 2018

Primrose Class had a wonderful world book day. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories, comics and non-fiction texts during our DEAR session.
We also wrote a whole class shared story which is going to be displayed for the school to see. We based it on the story 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.
Mrs Neal was extremely proud of us!

Autumn Term

Friday 22nd September 2017

To start our new topic we tasted different fruits and vegetables. We thought about where they came from and which we liked or disliked.


... and Reception!
