Welcome back!

I hope you all had a lovely half term break. You have all come back full of enthusiasm for our home learning – I’m seeing some really beautiful, high quality work.

Have a little look …

Well done class five, adults too!

You’re all amazing.

This week we have been thinking about The Green Ship. We have made predictions and critiqued the opening.

We then spent time interviewing our adults to find out which books they liked when they were younger.

We read lots of our favourite books and critiqued the openings.

And even found time for all of these activities too!

Well done class 5, I am proud of all of you.

Keep smiling,

You never fail to amaze me class five. The amount of beautiful work you have shared with me today in incredible.

I’m so proud of how hard you’re all working – I love logging on everyday to see all of your photographs and messages.

Have a little look at what we have been up to today –

Another amazing week …

Well Class Five you have done it again – I am so proud of all the beautiful work being produced at home. The enthusiasm for our new expedition ‘Where in the world would you go?’ is fabulous.

A special thank you to all the grown ups too, your efforts do not go unnoticed.

Take a little look at what we have been up to.

We have been Scientists …

We made posters to help younger children know how to write a fantastic sentence.

I wonder what we will get up to next week?

Another day – another Superhero!

This afternoon we were visited by Adie Moses – ex-professional footballer. He told us all about his football career which meant he ended up playing for Barnsley and England U21’s. We really enjoyed looking at his football shirts, photographs and his England cap. We had some really good questions to ask him too!

Monday 13th January

This morning we had a visit from a real local superhero. Mayor Ros Jones CBE. We had researched her and prepared some super questions – she was very impressed! We can’t wait to see which other superheroes come to visit over the next few weeks …

Friday 10th January 

This morning our adults joined us in class to help us design and plan our very own superhero capes – we have some very exciting designs to start making over the next few weeks.


Thursday 9th January 

We had a great day as part of our immersion week for our expedition – How can I be a Superhero where I live? We all came dressed as our favourite superheroes – there were lots of Batmen, Supermen and Wonder Women! The adults came as doctors and vets – Mrs Chadwick came dressed as her superhero mum – a nurse, and Mrs Parsons came as her superhero dad – a soldier. To finish off the day we had a visit from Phil Sheppard – an author and illustrator. He shared lots of stories with us and gave us some great ideas for our expedition – we are very excited to get started!

Friday 20th December

Friday by the Fire. We had a little treat this afternoon when Mrs Greening visited our class to read us Excitable Edgar – she even brought her cuddly Edgar!

Thursday 19th December 

Christmas film night. Everyone came back to school when in was dark dressed in their pyjamas cuddling pillows, blankets and cuddly toys – ready to snuggle down and watch The Polar Express together whilst snacking on pop corn – perfect festive evening.

Thursday 11th November 2019 

We had a fantastic morning today meeting Dave and all of his nocturnal animals. I was particularly proud of the children for encouraging each other to be brave and confident when holding and touching the animals – well done class five.

Thursday 5th September 2019

Began our first theme called ‘what makes a house a home?’ by thinking about what we think the difference between a house and home is. We then used dictionaries to find the actual definitions.
