Today Mr Brownsmith came to talk to us about being a police officer. He showed us all sorts of equipment and then he dressed Miss Bland up in his riot gear! It was very hot and heavy inside all that.

We all got in the very big police van, we tried to hold the big red key (it was incredibly heavy) and we held the very big shield.

Thank you Mr Brownsmith, it was great!



This week we have looked at the work of some of the Emergency Services. Today 2 Policemen came to visit. We tried on lots of their uniform and everyone got to sit in the police car! 

Bonfire Night


This week we have learnt about the story of Guy Fawkes. The children thoroughly enjoyed this one and can remember so much about it, if you ask them they should surprise you by what they know! They have had a great time taking on the roles of the characters too.

We have had 'Fizzing Fireworks' in our dance lesson and done some fantastic artwork to go with our topic. In these photos you can see chalk drawings of fireworks, collaged bonfire scenes and some great ICT bonfire pictures.

To carry on with our Autumn work we have explored vegetables - looking at them, printing with them and then tasting vegetable soup!

We made these sculptures of our faces in our RE work. 

Autumn Time


We are thinking about the changes in the world around us now that it is Autumn. We used our school grounds to look at the trees and their leaves.

We have taken leaf rubbings and prints as well as working on the computers to make autumn colour patterns.

1,2,3,4,5 Once I Caught A Fish Alive


Our Nursery Rhyme this week is '1,2,3,4,5' so today we have looked at some real fish - herring and mackerel! Some of the children were very brave and even picked up the fish for a closer look.

Harvest Week


This week we celebrated Harvest, with our own little assembly in school. We have thought about different types of food and today we tasted all sorts of bread - the baguette was very popular!

In Maths we have been thinking about taller and shorter and had great fun in the Wildlife Area (or 'Forest' as the children call it!), finding things which are taller and shorter.

1,2 Buckle my Shoe


Well, we've reached the end of the first full week in school. There are some very tired children here, but everyone is so settled and cheerful!

We've had a great week exploring feet and shoes, if you look carefully at the photo of our display you will see that the children even walked through paint in their bare feet!

The children have all settled so well into the routines of our school life - we're ready for dinners today!

Here are photos of some of our work - don't the spiders and their webs look great?

Next week we'll be exploring the rhyme '1,2 Buckle My Shoe' and looking carfeully at shoes and feet.
