Spring Term 1

Happy New Year!


Welcome back Blue Class. Ms Thwaites and Mrs Steel hope you all had a great holiday and you are all ready to learn lots of new things in our topic about 'Traditional Tales'.


This week, our book was Little Red Riding Hood. We listened to several different versions of the tale and identified the differences in the story and their endings. We had an active and fun P.E. session with Dave practising the different tag games we have learned.


We all worked extremely hard showing our teachers what we knew in phonics, writing and maths.

In maths, we learned about the composition of 4 and 5. We threw beanbags into a hoop and counted those which landed inside the hoop and then those that landed outside of the hoop. We recorded this in 5s frames using a different colour for inside the hoop to outside. We also ordered numbers to 10 and counted out cubes to match the number.


Blue class have loved reading, 'The Three Little Pigs' joining in with the repeated refrains. This resulted in some fabulous writing from the children. Mrs Steel and Ms Thwaites are so proud of you all. The children have been designing maps adding features such as woods and ponds. Using their phonic knowledge, the children labelled each of the pig's houses - straw, sticks and bricks. Role play areas and small world were very busy with the children re-enacting the story. 

Did someone say there were gingerbread men on the loose?

After, the gingerbread man and his friends were caught on our CCTV stealing our biscuits, the children set to making their own biscuits. They were delicious!

If the gingerbread man had used one of our boats, he would still be here today. 

Blue class learned about sinking and floating. They designed a boat that would float across the river to carry the gingerbread man. Some of us also made our boats waterproof using a plastic bag. 

Outdoor Learning - Magic Wands

Blue class searched the school field looking for a special stick so they could make it into a magic wand. They collected feathers and leaves and used wool to transform their special stick.

National Storytelling Week


Dressing up as our favourite fictional character.

Great fun with Adventure Babies using sensory objects whilst listening to the story, 'We're going on a bear hunt.'

Children's Mental Health Week

- Growing Together

After reading 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle, the children talked about the changes the caterpillar took in becoming a butterfly. They thought about and shared ideas how they have changed since being a baby. The children talked about what they would like to be when they are older and the small steps they need to do to reach their goal.  Using a butterfly outline, the children decorated their butterfly, adding words to show all the amazing skills and strengths they can do now.

Safer Internet Day


It was very exciting as we heard an alien ship had landed in our hall. The children found envelopes for Blue Sea and Blue Sky.  The letter was from Webby from Planet Chrome. He had crashed and whilst waiting for his spaceship to be fixed, the children were challenged to suggest some activities Webby could do that don't involve a computer. Blue class suggested lots of good games.
