05/05/2015- A lot of parents have spoke to me about the homework activities saying their child has really enjoyed the style of questions set. So, I have attached two articles- one English and one maths full of questions similar to those the children have been set for homework. The children do not have to do them but if you find your child is wanting a bit extra to do at home then feel free to download them or print them off.

Our Summer 1 Topic- Captivating Coppull!
Our new topic is all about Coppull. In our new topic we will be learning all about identifying materials and their different qualities. We will also be looking at maps of our local area and using maps to carry out orienteering activities. Finally, we will be looking at the work of local artists and trying to recreate our favourite pieces. You can find out more by reading the Summer 1 curriculum article below.

Farm to Fork trip at Tesco 10/03/2015
Today we visited Tesco to learn all about how our food makes the journey to finally being sold at Tesco. We got to look behind the scenes in the Deli and the Bakery (where we decorated some gingerbread men) and even got to scan some products through the tills! We visited the freezer to see how food is kept frozen before we take it home and we were set a challenge to find specific products from various countries.

Autumn Time by Ruby

I heard leaves crunching
I smelled fresh open air
I tasted warm hot chocolate
I felt wet leaves falling
I see spikey green conkers.

The children really enjoyed listening and watching this online story of Alice in Wonderland.
