Welcome Back! We hope you had a very enjoyable Easter Holiday. The children in Base 1 have come back after their holiday refreshed and ready to learn lots more new things. They all seem a little bit taller and more grown up!

Some children had lots of fun making their animal models, they are amazing and some look very life like! Here are a few of our models. Thank you to Parents who supported this activity. The children were very proud to show off their models and talk about how they made them.

Just before our Easter holidays we had an exciting afternoon when Mr Wimpenny and his Ambulance arrived at school! He let us explore his ambulance and learn all about the equipment. We even had a go at driving it!!

We have had lots of visits to our forest area, where we have been looking for signs of spring and new life. Each time we visit we see something different.

This week we have started thinking about our new topic 'Amazing Animals'. We have a very exciting new 'look out' station for our role play. Here we can spot animals and write about them. Mrs Parsons got a shock when she walked past our new window, she saw lots of animals roaring and growling at her! The children have really enjoyed pretending to be animals and also going on safari to look for animals!

Thank you for all the junk that has been coming into school. The children have started to make film camera's and binoculars as well as more animal models with all that junk! They are doing so well with their making skills. They are learning to talk about their models and discover how to improve and adapt them.

We have spent the week learning more things about 2D and 3D shapes and making pictures with them. Next week we will be linking the 3D shapes to their models. We will encourage the children to talk about the 3D shapes they have in their models and which shapes would be best to use.

In number work we have started to learn about sharing (basic division) and how this links to doubles and odd and even. We will continue with this next week. Some of us are learning addition and subtraction and will continue with this next week.

In phonics we have been spending time learning our words. Next week we will continue with this and new sounds too. Please continue to help your child learn their words from memory and to read a few pages of their reading book every night. Thank you.

We are still looking for Mystery Readers this term. If you enjoyed it and would like to do it again them please book a date in the diary. If you have not tried it, I cannot emphasise enough the positive effect it has on your child. They get a lovely surprise and a boost of confidence.Thank you.

I have asked the children to bring in books from home this term. It can be an animal story or an information book. It will encourage a greater love of books and an opportunity for them to share their books with the class. They will be well looked after and returned after we have shared them. Please label any books sent into school.

Thank you for your fantastic support. We are really looking forward to an exciting Summer Term.

Ms Huntington, Mrs Parsons and Mrs Wimpenny

What a wonderful visit we had this morning! As part of our farming topic, we were visited by two tractors; one old and one new. The children were wowed by them and asked some wonderful questions. They wanted to know how and why the tractors had changed over time, what they were made of and how much weight they could pull. Thank you to the lovely farmers who took time out of their very busy day to...
