Conisborough Castle

We had a brilliant trip to Conisborough Castle and loved defending the castle with our swords.

We enjoyed dressing up in our spooky costumes.

Harvest Festival Assembly

This is the song we will be performing in our Harvest festival assembly.  We hope that you enjoy it.

Home Learning

These three children have been busy extending their learning in school with some fabulous home learning.  Thank you for bringing in your fantastic work to share with us.

Julia Ogden

We spent the day working with the artist Julia Ogden to create these fantastic portraits linked to Black History Month.  We used acrylics and created our portraits using layering.  We are really proud of them and can't wait to see them up on display.

It is our week in our new ICT suite.

We are enjoying our Castles topic and looking forward to our trip to Conisborough Castle.

We have been busy creating street art, enjoying drama, creating beautiful Paul Klee inspired art work and working hard in class.

Welcome to Class 2

In Class 2, the children will be working with me (Miss Felton) and Mrs Walmsley our Teaching Assistant. Our priorities are for your child to feel happy, safe and secure in order to help them make the most of their learning. 

Please help us to develop your child’s independence, by allowing them to come into the cloakroom on their own each morning and get themselves organised. 

To help your child, it is really important that you hear them read at least three times a week at home and support them in learning their spellings each week too. Children bring books in to change on a Monday, but ‘free-choice’ books can be changed anytime during the week.

Our PE sessions for this half term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday, so please make sure your child has their PE kit with them on these days.

We are starting to learn times tables now in Class 2, so you could support this at home by counting in 2, 3, 5, and 10’s and by beginning to ask times tables questions within these. Don’t forget to use Purple Mash as an aid to support your child across the curriculum at home.
