Nursery and Reception are referred to as 'The Foundation Stage'. The children work on many activities in small groups, whole classes and individually.
The children have settled well in their new classes and are enjoying their everyday activities. They have been painting, drawing and writing their names. The children wanted everyone to see their hard work, so we have put some pictures on our page.
Years 1 and 2 have been looking at the growth of plants. They have written some poems about the growth of some seeds they have planted.
They used a word processing package called 'Textease'
On Monday at school
I planted a seed
On Tuesday I watered it
And it grew like a weed
On Wednesday I looked at it
And I was shocked
It had grown six pairs of socks!
On February 4th, Agrippina and Secondus, two 'Romans' from London, travelled down to spend the day with Years 3 & 4.
We had a wonderful day learning about how truly disgusting the Romans were, and had a chance to dress up and to look at artefacts. Many of the children had made shields and swords for homework, and they had the opportunity to learn some fighting skills and try different formations.
They learnt some basic Latin and then practised marching skills. It was an enjoyable and memorable day and the children got a great deal from it.
Years 5 and 6 have been designing T-shirts in their art sessions.
Below are some of the results.
