Phonics Drop In


Thank you to all of you who were able to come to the session this morning. We hope that it helped you to understand how phonics is taught and that it gave you some ideas for home learning. The children are working exceptionally hard and making good progress.

For those of you who were unable to attend we will send home the leaflet that was handed out today. It will explain all about phonics teaching in school.

There will be some changes to Bug Club over the next few days so please bare with us if there are any problems.

We have been working really hard on becoming curious learners and thinking about all the ways we can show this learning behaviour. Such as asking questions and trying things in new or different ways. We are hoping that all the children will be earning their bronze award for our 5Cs soon. 

Not long to go now until our Easter holiday. It will certainly be a hard earned break!

Best wishes,

Mrs. Luter


Visit to the library

Every Wednesday we visit the school library where Mrs.D reads a story to us.

Today we also got to make an important vote.

We voted on our favourite picture book for the Hampshire Picture Book Awards 2015.

We each had our own voting form so we felt very grown up!

The Chicks Come to Visit!

We worked so hard this morning writing a recount of our trip to the museum yesterday that we had a visit from the chicks that we hatched in Starfish class.






Weald and Downland Museum

We had a fabulous day today at the Open Air Museum.

We have learned so much about homes in the past and were rather surprised by some discoveries. No electricity, no toilets and no windows! The Tudors must have been very chilly!

Children be sure to share your learning with your families. Can anyone remember that saying …’night, night, don’t let the…..’ Where does it come from and what does it mean?

Why did the Tudors keep herbs in their beds?

Who stayed at school until they were 13?

How were the houses built?

How were they similar to our homes today?

How were they different?

Which animal helped to make clay bricks for the homes?

What did the Tudors drink?

What else did you learn?

Fire Fighters Visit Year 1!

Today we had a visit from Hampshire Fire Rescue Service. They have taught us lots about how to keep ourselves and our homes safe and the children have a job that they  need to do tonight!
