The second half of the Autumn term was equally as exciting as the first! We had a non- uniform day to raise money for Children In Need.  The children looked fantastic in their costumes!

One of our highlights for this half term was when we all dressed up as a word. This was a brilliant idea and everyone made a super effort to get involved. We learnt new words such as; fragile, extinct, determined and vibrant. 

The children worked really hard this half term to perform ‘The Nativity’ to the whole school and parents. We learnt many new skills during this performance, such as learning to sit quietly and listen, to learn a range of new songs and dances, to project our voice and to gain confidence in performing in front of an audience. The children did a great job and we were very proud of them!

We are passionate about books and love reading! We have recently been to visit Wellington Community Library. Mrs Kimber read Christmas stories to us and we sang lots of songs. We had a lovely time and we are looking forward to our next visit. We have also recently started using the school library every Wednesday where we can choose a book, from a range of fiction and non-fiction books, to take home.

What an exciting first half term we have had! At the very start of half term, we were extremely excited to welcome three hoglets into Hedgehog Class. We learnt facts about them, watched them moving and some of us were even brave enough to handle the prickly fellows!

As part of our literacy work, we learnt to tell the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. Our ‘WOW’ starter for this involved a visit from a rather big red hen called Rosie! We loved the visit and asked her owner a range of questions.

For Halloween we had a special fancy dress day! Don’t we look scary! We also had a special guest ‘a witch at her spinning wheel!’

To consolidate our maths learning about 2D shapes, we went on a local walk to find shapes in the environment.

We also looked for signs of autumn.
