A Happy Christmas!

31st December, 2020

It has been lovely to see that some of you have been able to log into the online classroom to view our Christmas play. The children worked very hard (with not much practice time) to put this surprise together for you. I am extremely proud of all of them.

I hope you have all been able to enjoy the Christmas break, if somewhat different to what we may be used to. I am completely overwhelmed by your kind words, cards and gifts. It is very humbling and I appreciate it all so very much. Thank you!

It is nearly time to set sail into next term so please keep an eye on these posts for the newsletter and plans coming soon. Please make sure that your child’s pencil cases are replenished ready for another term of hard work.

Happy New Year!

Autumn 2

3rd November, 2020

We have had a very busy half term but the children have wowed me with their perseverance and ability. They have all work so hard and produced some amazing work.

Today we finished up our science unit by investigating what animals have eaten to group them into a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore category. The children really enjoyed this 🙂


Spellings and times tables have been sent home along with all the children’s stationery so you are able to check what may need replenishing ready for the new half term.

Year 1Year 2
These are week 1 spellings that will be tested on Monday 9th November

Year 1’s will be testing their 5 times tables and Year 2’s will have a go at their 4 times tables which will also be tested on Monday 9th November.

We have been learning about partitioning 2-digit numbers. I am very proud how well Squirrels have been working.
