A few updates!

December 2, 2017

Just a few updates from the past week or so. There has recently been some confusion over the spellings – do not worry and continue to learn the set the children have in their book bags from last week and I shall do the spelling quiz on Monday 4th. Due to my absence on Friday, the latest spellings for the quiz in the coming week have not gone out. However, year 1 shall receive these on Monday to be tested on Friday 8th. Apologies for any confusion this may have caused!

The reading challenge winners shall also be given their certificates early next week! Thank you, it’s so lovely to see the children trying so hard with their reading! 🙂

As I’m sure you are all aware, our school production is on 12th of December!!! By now all children should have received a costume letter which also has the ticket slip attached to it. Can these please be returned as soon as possible. I shall be sending out the tickets in the children’s book bags early next week!  🙂

Lastly, if there is anything that you feel needs to be spoken about or wish to raise with me with regards to the children, then please do. If I’m not in the classroom, you can leave a message with either Miss Shears or Miss Smith and I will get back to you asap. 🙂

Thank you so much for attending our enterprise afternoon on Friday, I was very sad that I couldn’t be there! The children had all worked so hard.  Have a lovely weekend and I shall see you next week!










The children have been amazing at getting into role over the past two weeks! We have been using drama to help us understand the thoughts and feelings of the shoemaker and his wife and the very cheeky little elves! The children were split into groups and had to recreate a short scene from the book with actions. They did a fantastic job. ☺️

What sounds can we make?

The children loved making noises for our school production. We pretended that we were in the shoemaker’s shoe shop. We made tapping and hammering sounds and also pretended to be cheeky elves!

Anti-bullying week!

November 17, 2017

The children have been thinking really hard this week about what makes a good friend. We all worked together to create a class pledge and it was really lovely to see all of the children in their odd socks on Thursday! Thank you and have a lovely weekend! 🙂


Who do these belong to?

The children loved exploring the different objects in the box this week. We had fun discussing and predicting who the objects belong to…

Once upon a time…

November 9, 2017

This week in year one we have been looking at using adjectives to describe characters and also have been thinking of some wonderful story openers… The children have been working really hard to produce some amazing writing to go towards their Christmas performance!

Year one have loved being able to free flow outside this week. We have been building the numicon staircase, making autumnal collages and building a town with our construction kit. It was lovely to see all of the children working together! 🙂

Book fair

November 8, 2017

Next week we are having a book fair, come along and see if you can discover a new and exciting book! 🙂

Year one have been using their drama skills this week. We have taken a guided tour of the town and have pretended to be different townspeople. The children were brilliant at pretending to be bakers, fishmongers and butchers! We have been using adjectives in our writing to describe everything we have seen around the town. See if year one can remember any adjectives at home! ☺️


This morning reception and year one took a trip to the Park Campus Theatre! The children were very excited to discover an invitation had been left in the classroom for them this morning. They were all given golden tickets to look after and also had yummy popcorn and chocolate ices to enjoy during the interval. What a fantastic morning! We had lots of fun! 🍿☺️
