  • Our class PE day is Wednesday, please come to school wearing your PE kit and appropriate footwear, with jewellery already removed. 
  • We have Outdoor Learning every Monday (rain or shine). Please come to school in suitable clothing that could get muddy or dirty. Welly boots and rain coats are recommended on those rainy days.
  • You will have a reading book from school to read at home. Please bring it back to school once it is read and we can help you to choose a new one. 
  • Log all of your reading, both independent and with someone at home, on Go Read.
  • We have a new system for sharing! Each week, two children will be chosen and their names written up in our classroom. On the Thursday of that week, they can bring in something they would like to share and show to the class. This can be some learning they have done at home that they are proud of or even a toy. Once they have had their turn sharing, we will select the next two children who will share the following week. 
    Please do contact me if you are unsure about this.

 

 

We met Mr T!
Mrs Moss kindly brought in her tortoise called Mr T for Moles to look at. Year 2s have been learning that amphibians do not drink water like us. Instead, they have a drinking patch underneath their stomach, which they submerge into water and the water is absorbed. The tortoise Mr T is a reptile, and can drink water through his mouth, but he can also absorb water between his body and his shell, and was another fab example of how animals can adapt and still have their needs met.

Secret Agent Training treat

Year 2s got together after their Secret Agent Training (SATs) and had a well-deserved treat. They played outside, made a fire in the cabin and made smores! 

Year 2 trip to Knettishall Heath

4th April 2022

 

Year 2s from Moles and Badgers went on a trip to Knettishall Heath nature reserve. We went river dipping, bug hunting, got to know a tree and made our own nature reserve. It was a cold, windy and wet day, but we have a great time!

Year 1 Trip to Knettishall Heath

(28th March 2022)

 

Year 1s from both Hedgehogs and Moles went on a trip to Knettishall Heath nature reserve.

They had a go at river dipping, got to know a tree, drew sketches of the river and made their very own nature reserve. The weather was perfect for a day outside!

World Book Day

3rd March 2022

We came to school in our snuggly clothes with our favourite books.

We had a story swap with Mr Holman!

We made book mark monsters!

17.2.22 Peter Rabbit Day

 

As part of our Literacy learning, we dressed up as characters from The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

In our Literacy lesson, we tasted some of the foods that were mentioned in the story and wrote adjectives to describe the taste, texture, smell and appearance of the different foods. 
 

In Maths, we voted for our favourite foods from the morning tasting, and then we

represented this data using block diagrams.

 

During the afternoon, we made vegetable kebabs and cooked them over a fire in the cabin. We had lots of fun pretending to be Peter Rabbit, running around, exploring the cabin field and avoiding Mr McGregor!

17.2.22 Making vegetable kebabs

7.1.22 We enjoyed practising some pen control.

5.1.22 We recycled sweet wrappers from the festive period and made sun catchers.

Last few days of term

Our class visit to the Enchanted Forest Library

After the grand opening of our library, we were very excited to have story time together inside. It was soo magical to sit beneath the tree and get lost in a story!

Moles were visited by the Elf on the Bookshelf!

Hello Moles!

 

I am really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow for our first day back.

Here is a short video of me reading 'A Squash and a Squeeze'. I am reading it while sitting in our classroom so you get a sneaky peak before tomorrow, I wonder what you can see behind me.

 

Apologies for the poor quality of my video, but I hope you like the story.

 

I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
