Patio re - development


Watch this space!

Samba, Samba, Samba!


Year 1 have begun their Samba lessons - we are really working hard to bring you an amazing performance in December.

Welcome back after half term.  The  Wagtails have had a marble treat this week to celebrate filling their  marble jar - well done Wagtails.


All the Year One's had a brilliant Samba lesson with Ms Whitehouse out for the date of our performance at the end of term.  Again you followed the Silver Learning Code by trying something new.  


We have also started our new Superhero topic.  The children loved reading Supertato and making their own Supertatoes to take home.  Make sure your Supertato is on the look out for the Evil Pea getting up to mischief.  The Evil Pea has already been causing trouble by hiding the counters we needed for maths and the  stickers for our handwriting books...what will he do next?

Celebrating the end of our Commotion in the Ocean topic by visiting the Historic Dockyard
We had the most amazing day at the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth - thank you to all our Wootey families that helped on the day.  The children were a credit to our school - keeping to the Golden Rules and Silver Learning Code by trying something new.  Well done Year One. 
Year 1 have enjoyed finding animals on the patio during Grounds Week. We found lots of Woodlice. What animals can you find in your garden or at the park? Remember, they like to hide in damp, dark places.
A very warm welcome back to all our Year 1 children. We have started our learning with a fabulous story 'The Lion Inside'. You can hear the story being read aloud on the youtube link below.
