Early Bird Reading in Key Stage 1

Every Friday, parents are invited in early to come and read with their children. Together, they can read comics, word cards, books and puzzles while learning top tips to help them. As a special thank you to the children, they get to have a biscuit and juice just to make it a little more special.

Today was our first Early Bird Reading and what a great turn out. Lots of parents came and enjoyed reading  with their children.

We look forward to seeing you all next week!

Apostrophes for possession

In Phonics, we’ve been learning about how to use apostrophes. Today, we learnt how to use them to show that something belongs to someone. We worked in pairs to write and label things that belonged to our friends. Have we used the apostrophe in the correct place?

Anti-bullying in Flamingo class

This week in Flamingo class we have been thinking about bullying. As a class we have discussed what bullying is and what we can do if we are being bullied. We have also thought about how we can be a good friend.

We have created anti-bullying posters to help remind others to do the right thing and to stand up to bullying.

Grouping Animals

In Year 2, we’ve been finding out about animals and their habitats. We’ve found out lots about animals and why they’re suited to their home. We’ve also been learning new scientific words, for example, mammal, reptile, amphibian, carnivore, herbivore and omnivore. We then chose an animal and tried to use some of these words to write a riddle called, What am I?

Can you guess which animal we are?
