Autumn Term 2015/2016

This half term our topic is ‘Our School Locality'

As part of this topic we will be exploring the local area around our school. We will look at what materials appear in our school and its' environment.



Over this half term the children will be focusing on Number orders and place value of numbers. Emphasis will be placed upon recording numbers clearly and the manipulative skills required to do this.





This half term the children will be looking at a variety of fiction texts including the storiesand  The children will predict how the different stories will end, and retell them in their own words and signs. Through colour coding they will focus on characters and learn how to ask questions about them. They will link this to their own experiences using drama and role-play. They will build up to writing their own fantasy story.  


The class question is:

“What do you know about our school and the materials used in its local area?"


  We have had a wonderful trip learning how to make pizzas at Pizza Express.  We then ate them in the town park, followed by a tasty ice cream.

  We then had fun playing in the play area, it was a fantastic day!

Our visit from Gentleshaw Wildlife Centre was amazing; we held lots of different animals and learnt all about them.

We have colour coded 'orange' descriptive words about a cactus.

We now have new covers for our iPads, we love them!

This morning we have watched baby chicks hatching from their eggs, it was amazing!
Here are some pictures from our visit to Tutbury Castle, it was such an amazing day.  We even got to meet King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth the 1st!

Today in class we have made and decorated cakes.  We have then colour coded what we did and made a storyboard all about it.  It was great fun!

This is an example of our 'colour coded' show and tell session.

From everyone in the Speech and Language Centre we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year.

Mrs Challinor, Mr Smith and Miss Wood.

The speech and language centre has some fantastic news! Cameron McInnes' parents have donated 4 ipads to the speech and language centre. Cameron’s dad ran a half marathon in order to raise the money and we can't thank him enough, we are really overwhelmed by your generosity. The children in our class are very excited!

After out amazing visit from Santa this morning, we were feeling very festive so we made him some mince pies, they look delicious!

As this week in school is 'World War Week' we have been doing a range of exciting activities all about the war and remembrance day. Hope you like our pictures!

Today at school has been Art Day.  We have been looking at work created by Andy Goldsworthy, who makes sculptures using natural materials.  The children have had a great day!
