Our first topic is 'The Big Build' and we have enjoyed investigating our construction role play area. We are reading 'The Three Little Pigs' and have been listening to different versions, we have also been practising our oral retelling of the story.

We have already started our half term sessions of Forest School and so far we have drilled, bug hunted and made journey sticks and mud pies! We love being outdoors! 

  

 

 We have just studied Martin Luther King for our Black History Week. We have written down our own hopes and dreams and made peace doves. We have shared our work with the school in a special assembly. 

 

 

 

 

We have been having a lot of visitors in for Inspirational Women of the World week. Here are some pictures of us and our visitors. 

                          

 Here we are listening to Justine Page from Green Earth Learning talking about her forest school business.

We are off to a busy start this term with Science Week beginning Monday 13th January.

We investigated our different senses. We had to guess a mystery item using our senses other than sight.                                                                                                                                     

         

 

We also learnt about our solar system and we told Amber class all about our learning. We showed them the planets orbiting around the sun.

We have been playing odd one out.

 

Can you guess the odd one out?


We have been looking at the Jewish festival of Sukkot in our RE lessons. We made a sukkah to remember how Jewish people made temporary homes in the desert. 

       

                                  

 

School Closure

We would both like to say that we are missing our lovely Diamond children and we hope that we will see you all soon. However, in the meantime we can use email and hopefully soon google classroom to see how we are all getting on. We have really enjoyed receiving your emails and pictures this week and remember please state in the email that you are happy for the photos to go onto the class web page. 

Keep safe everyone, 

Ms Westley & Mrs Quilter
