We couldn’t resist! What a fun morning!

Chestnut class were far to excited today about last nights football score. So we got out the footballs and did some training! We ran, jumped, passed and practised our ball skills. Then we had a mini tournament! Well done to the non-bib team who were our champions! 


Esmae has been measuring her sunflower in (CM). Great work looking after it Esmae!

Look at Emalee's sunflowers! She is taking such good care of them! Great job!

All the children across school are walking a mile each week around the school. Chestnut class walked their first mile in the school playgrounds on Wednesday afternoon and will continue this every Wednesday during their PE lesson until the end of summer term. They had lots of fun.

The KS1 children have made a fantastic fairy garden. They carefully  coloured  in a variety of different butterflies πŸ¦‹  and fairies 🧚‍♀️, painted rocks with decorative pictures and helped each other to design the layout of our beautiful fairy garden. 

This week the children have been retelling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. They made story maps and actions to go with it to help them remember the story. They made their own puppets, and in groups put on puppet shows to the rest of the class before they started to write. I am so proud of all of your writing and it puts a huge smile on my face to see the progress you have made this year. Keep it up! Miss Brown :)

Read, Write, Inc

Your child may have come home from school talking about Read, Write, Inc. 

This is a new way we are teaching phonics across the school. Phonics help your child with reading and writing. 

To help you as parents, I have attached some links which may help you to understand what we are teaching, how we are teaching phonics, as well as some useful resources for you to use as well. 

If you have any questions about this new, exciting way of teaching your child phonics, please come and ask us!
