Chestnut Centre Trip. The children had a ball on our school trip. They were very well behaved and asked some really impressive questions. A great day had by all!

The sun came out so we took advantage!!

Plant...astic! Our class received a newspaper report last Monday informing us there was an unusual plant at Glossop Garden Centre! The children were so excited about it that we visited the Garden Centre on Thursday,the children spotted the plant and were very pleased to have seen it! The children have become so excited bout this that they've produced some great wriitng using this as their 'hook'.

School trip. The children had a really good time at the Butterfly House.We learnt a lot about mini beasts and had a close look at a tarantula, hissing cockroach, giant African snail and a boa constrictor. The children got to hold the snake and conquer their fears! The sun was shining all day and this only added to the great time we all had.

We really enjoyed our afternoon out at Glossopdale's sports afternoon. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and we enjoyed all the activities available to us.

As part of our science topic, we invited Pets at Home to talk to the children about caring for pets. They loved seeing and stroking the lion headed rabbit and the guinea pigs.

This half term in literacy we have been reading A Dark, Dark Tale. The children have loved it. They came into class and found A Dark, Dark Corner of the classroom with a spooky box...What was inside it??

During this half term the children have produced some great writing!

We looked at some poetry by a poet called Kit Wright and made up our own poem in the style of Kit. The children really used their imagination while writing and came up with some brilliant poems. 

                       

 

 

 

This Half Term's Star Writer is

Emma .

    Well done Emma!

The children have been learning about Mexico during our topic work this half term and we decided to make tortilla wraps as part of our DT work. The children enjoyed designing and making them, but they especially loved eating them!! 

The children have really enjoyed our work about the Hindu festival Diwali. They have found out where India is, made Indian sweets and acted out the story of Rama and Sita. 

 

The children have settled in really well this week. They have enjoyed the introduction of the story Handa's Surprise that we are using throughout Literacy this half term. 

 

The children were really hooked as Handa (aka myself) walked into the classroom!! We discussed the fruit Handa put in her basket and then tasted it. The guava wasn't very nice!
