Terms 1/2

The children have settled back into school really happily and are ready to learn!

Our topic this term is...

Are we there yet?


We started the year with a whole school theme based on the story of Captain Plank's Pirate Adventure. We used the Talk for Writing approach to learn the story. We enjoyed using opportunities to write from it. We were enjoyed retelling it as a whole school on our Pirate Wow Day!

Please help your child to learn their spellings at home. We teach the children the spelling rules at school and we work in year groups on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to consolidate this. 

Our text this term is The Night Pirates.

Our Science topic this term is looking at animals, including humans. We will be identifying, drawing and labelling basic parts of the human body and investigating our senses. We will be looking at amazing animals including fish, reptiles, birds and mammals and discovering which are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores!





Pirate Wow Day!


We had lots of fun on our Pirate Wow Day! We learnt lots of information about pirates and the different types of language associated with pirates ready for our writing!


How did our Pirate Wow Day help us with our learning?

International Day of Languages - 26th September 2017


Our whole school had a great day celebrating International Day of Languages. We had a French day! We all came to school dressed in either red, white or blue. We loved going around all the different classes learning different aspects of the French language and culture. We also learnt to sing in French, play boules and even create our own version of the Eiffel Tower!

C'etait tres amusant!

DT Day

Don't forget this Wednesday is our DT Day in Owl and Goldfinch Classes. Remember to bring in your resources to make your pirate ship. We are looking forward to a day of designing, fixing, sticking, building and evaluating our pirate ships!
