Term 3

'Magic and Mayhem'

Who does this belong to?

As a 'stunning start' to our topic about magic, mayhem and lots more to do with fairy tales, the children enjoyed watching a pantomime this week when Beauty and the Beast visited Westmeads!

Term 2

'A Long Time Ago'

What do you remember?

Christmas Post

The children have been busy practising their writing this term and have enjoyed writing for lots of different purposes. This included; letters, shopping lists and Christmas cards.

After performing the Christmas Nativity, they decided that it would be a nice idea to write about what character they were in the performance. They wanted to tell their families about it, so have written a postcard home! Look out for your exciting delivery, it’s on the way.

Christmas Crafts

The children enjoyed the Christmas craft day. They had fun creating their angels and Christmas trees and were excited to see whether they could get the hoop on Rudolph's antlers. When they returned to the classroom, they had a very special visitor and were all eager to ask lots of questions and tell him what they would like for Christmas.

 

School Trip to Seasalter Christian Centre

Yellow Class and Orange Class had a great time when they visited Seasalter Christian Centre. The children were so excited to travel in the school minibus! Once they arrived at the centre they listened to Christmas stories, made a christingle and then completed a Christmas activity sheet before heading back to school on the minibus. It was a fun-filled morning!

Christmas Nativity

Thank you for coming to watch the Christmas Nativity. We have had a very busy but fun time perfecting our performance. The children were brilliant and really enjoyed themselves on stage; it was a great start to the Christmas period. We hope you enjoyed as much as we did!

Children in Need

The children enjoyed their very 'spotty' day to raise money for Children in Need.  As well as wearing spotty clothes, they created their own versions of Pudsey bear and played 'spotty' games.

Remembrance Day

The children created their own poppies to wear and display in school.  After watching the 'Poppies' animation, they sat quietly for two minutes at eleven o'clock as a mark of respect.

Diwali

This week we have been finding out about the Hindu Festival of Lights, Diwali. The children have enjoyed reading to the story 'Rama and the Demon King' and finding out about Rama, Sita and Ravana. We have had a busy week of role playing the story, creating 'Missing Person' posters, creating clay diva lamps and building bridges to rescue Sita.

Write Dance

The children have had great fun in our first P.E. lessons, dancing to the Volcano music in Write Dance. We practised the dance, moving around the hall, and then used these movements to make marks on paper on the floor.

As our marble treat this term Orange Class went on an Autumn walk around the local area, looking at the different colours in the trees, spotting spider webs and listening for different birdsong.

Everyone looked very bright in their yellow clothes! Thank you for your donations to this worthwhile charity.

Visit from Brogdale Farm

Brogdale Farm visited school as part of our Harvest Celebrations. They talked to the children about the different apples grown at Brogdale Farm and the children had the opportunity to taste some different types of apple. Orange Class' favourite apple was an English apple which is grown at Brogdale Farm.
