All Things Wild Friday 8th July 2016

Fantastic day had by all! We met some living relatives of the dinosaurs, then went in search of the giant 'terrible lizards' as we stepped through time. We learned so much and had great fun too. Thanks for your continued support as educational visit this wonderful could not happen without you!










Land Before Time June 2016

The children have hit the ground running with our new topic and the Dinosaur Den in constant use. We have already received home learning from the keenest dinosaur hunters and our budding palaeontologists are excavating some exciting new fossils - we made our own from clay! We also discovered a dinosaur egg on Key Stage 2 playground which hatched into our very own baby dinosaur. He does not have a name yet. We would love your suggestions! We are really looking forward to Enterprise Week with lots of money making ideas floating around. This half term is proving very busy with Sports Day and the trip to All Things Wild to look forward to. Raaaaargh!

Thursday 21st April             Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

We had great fun, attending the royal photo shoot. We have found out a lot of information about the Queen and the royal family. Today we held a birthday party in her honour.


We received a very special delivery of Crown Jewels!


Year 1 are thoroughly enjoying the new topic 'Bright Lights, Big City' and have already produced some excellent home learning. Thank you!




Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely Christmas. 


In Spring 1 our topic  was 'The Incredibles'

We have enjoyed learning all about superheroes and their special powers.  We will had a special 'Superhero Day'.  


4th February 2016


Wow! What a fantastic Superhero Day! We had an unwelcome visit from Professor Slime after Open the Book assembly. 




He told us he had captured Miss Brown and we had to follow the clues to get her back. He also threatened Mrs Plant with his slimeball!




Luckily, we found his secret maps and discovered the letters to spell out THE NEST, so we all rushed in to rescue the damsel in distress. We wrote letters to all the teachers, warning them that he was on the loose, and experimented with slime he had left around school.





Fun Phonics

Thank you to everyone who has been practising our new sounds at home. If you have read and spelt the words, try putting them into a silly sentence or making your own list of rhyming words. You can also use www.phonicsplay.co.uk to play games using them.

Today we have been retelling the story of the ‘Naughty Bus’ by Jan and Jerry Oke, we did this by going outside and driving our bus around  different parts of the playground. 

Lily – “I think it was a lovely idea because I really enjoyed it”.

Leighton – “I liked dropping the Naughty Bus into the water”.

Ciara – “It was amazing to go outside and build a big city”.

Caitlin – “I enjoyed going outside and driving the Naughty Bus through the baked beans”.


24th April 2015

This week Miss Brown set Class HB a challenge to design and build a moving model of the London Eye.  Lots of children persevered to make their moving model stand up.  Here are a few of our models...

Please use the tools here to help with your learning at home



In Numeracy we are building and securing our knowledge

of numbers using objects and number lines. The children will

be reading and writing numbers to 50 as well as counting to 100 and back.

How you can help

  • Encourage children to use the language of mathematics i.e. how many, altogether, add, take away, left, equals.
  • Use number cards to develop number recognition to 50.
  • Let them help with jobs which involve calculating, eg how many more, how many left?
  • Use Numeracy resources on this page to lock in the learning at home.


Useful Numeracy games:

Number bonds to 10, 20 and 100:

In Literacy we are looking at:

  • Phonics - Letters and sounds Phase 5

  • Tricky words

  • Reading

  • Fiction Stories

  • Recounts

How you can help

  • Look in the book bag each night and spend a few minutes reading a book in there. 
  • Use the Phonics pages in the reading record to practice the sounds - you could look for the sounds in their reading book together.
  • Look in the book bag for additional  words sent home to practice. 
  • Use the Phonics resources on Class HB's web page to secure phonics knowledge at home.
