Home Learning

This week your home learning is to complete the WOW badge design in your child’s home learning diaries.

This is our last week on our current topic of artists. We will therefore be sending out a new home learning pyramid next week for our new context ‘growing up’. To excite the children we have organised to look after and care forĀ some chick eggs next week which will hopefully hatch!! The children are extremely excited about this and we cannot wait to see what will hatch from the eggs! We have also been finding out about what the children already know and we are so impressed with all of the facts the children know about baby animals and life cycles! Well done Year R!


Welcome back!

Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a lovely half term and cannot believe we have nearly completed two terms at school!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the home learning completed over half term. The recounts, pictures, collages and drawings are wonderful and proves how inspiring our trip to the art gallery was.

This week the children have been applying the art skills learnt at the gallery in their play. They have been creating newspaper paintings inspired by the artist Kurt Jackson whose exhibition was on show at the gallery. We have also been creating sea scapes using oil pastels, water colours and collage. This evening we will be sending the pictures created at the art gallery home, so look out for them in book bags!

Home Learning for Half Term!

As you know we are all off to the Art Gallery on Friday! As it is half term next week we would like you to reflect on your visit to the gallery. In your book bags we have provided a sheet for you if you would like to do a recount and use your phase 2 and phase 3 sounds to have a go at writing some sentences! You may also like to create some art work based on what inspired you on the trip.

The childrenĀ have all worked so hard this half term and the progress made since Christmas has been a joy to behold.

Once again thank you to all of you for your support at home and on behalf of the Early Years team we wish you a restful half term!


Home learning

This week we would like you to continue to revise all of your phase 3 sounds.

Also, if you have words to learn for the Liturgy on Tuesday, please rehearse those at home, practising your loud speaking voices!

If you don’t have a speaking part to practise, can you retell the story of the Feeding of the 5,000 to your family?

Thank you for all of your hard work!!!



What a fantastic day we had yesterday! We couldn’t believe our eyes when we woke up to a snowy scene yesterday morning!

We all spent the whole morning out in the snow, working together to build snowmen and having snow ball fights!

We all discovered that snow is really cold and gets us very wet! We talked about what snow is made from and why we have snow.

We had such a wonderful day!
