Last week we continued looking at the story Harry the Happy Mouse. The children are enjoying finding out about his adventures and who he meets on his walk. We have been focusing on looking at how characters feel. Reception even tried some drama activities, I think we could have some future actors in our class.
In Maths Reception have been looking at making patters. We have made patterns with cubes, theading beans and by printing 3D shapes. The children have made losts of progress, which is amazing to see!
The Year 1's have been busy also.
In Science we have been looking at plants. As we cannot go to the park at the moment, we brought the park to the children. The children went on a leaf hunt to find different types of trees. Afterwards they ordganised the leaves into 2 piles ( evergreen and decidious). They had an unbe-leaf-able time!
In Art the year 1's have begun to explore texture. The children went on a texture hunt around school, making rubbings of surfaces that are smooth, lumpy and rough. Afterwards they made thier very own texture mat, trying to include all of the textures that we had explored.
Remember to have a look at our class Gallery for more pictures!
See you soon

Last week our Reception children enjoyed their first full week in class Pendle. They were amazing and have settled in beautifully.
In English we have started looking at Poetry and rhyming words, our focus poem is 'Hickory Dickory Dock'. The children have enjoyed learning the poem and performing it with actions. Our focus this week is to identify words that rhyme and to continue a rhyming string so that we can write our own peom.
As we have settled in more we are beginning to learn about Plants (Science) ,Castles (History) and all about our families (PSHE).
Remember to keep up to date with our Gallery to see what else we have been up to.
Stay safe and See you soon,

I cannot believe our first week is already over. Our Reception children have been joining us in the afternoons. They are settling in beautifully and have been busy painting, building, playing and making friends.
Our Year 1 children have been working incredibly hard and are getting use to the challenges of Year 1. In the mornings they have been subtracting numbers and looking at the story 'The Black Hat' by Mia Walczak. In the afternoons they have been learning about the plants, the artist Andrew Goldsworthy and the harvest. We have even planted our own beans and harvested our school vegetable plot.
I am so excited to continue our learning journey this year!
