This is our first term in full time we have been trying really hard to settle into a new environment and play with all of our new friends. We have been learning all about ourselves and our families. Then we started to look at our environment and what we could see around our school. We talked a lot about the places we have visited in our ‘Going places’ topic. This term we also got to do lots of acting for our class Nativity. We had a great time learning new songs and dances and we got to perform in front of the whole school and our families!

Also this term we went on a trip to the snowdmome! It was fantastic. We had a great time playing in the snow and sliding down the hill.



This term we looked at the topic ‘Colours’. We got to look at the artist Kandinsky and make our own concentric circle painting. We really liked this activity and now we make concentric circles all of the time! We also looked at the topic ‘Growing’. We have been able to plant some seeds and watch them grow into beanstalks. At the beginning of this topic we had some special visitors, Chicken eggs! We got to watch the eggs in their incubator, then hatching and then growing as chicks. We loved this process and we got to ask lots of interesting questions!



This term we have moved from very small animals to huge ones! We have been looking at Dinosaurs! We are looking to see if we can name different dinosaurs and where they might have lived. We have looked at lots of fossils and different artefacts. We like this topic and we have enjoyed playing in our Dinosaur Dig role play area.


In January 2014 we were awarded 'Outstanding' in our Ofsted inspection. Read more
