Suddenly we are very busy with Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, D&T, Music, RE and PE.

We follow the Twinkl validated SSP for phonics.

Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like more information about the curriculum.

  • Healthy snacks

    In DT we made our healthy snack for Barnaby Bears picnic. We had lots of fun designing them, making them, and then eating them.  


  • Growing a bean plant

    In science, we have been learning about plants. We planted a bean and have been observing its changes by recording them in a bean diary. One stem has grown to 75cm!

  • Fruit smoothies

    This week in design and technology we made our own fruit smoothies. We learnt new skills such as cutting, peeling, and grating. They were delicious! 

  • Back at school

    This week in Rabbit class, we programmed Bee-bots by giving them a set of commands. We learnt how important the go and the clear buttons are. 

    In English we are learning about traditional tales. We learnt the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and used puppets to act out the key parts. 

  • Spring walk

    This week in Rabbit class, we went on a spring walk. We found some frogspawn in the pond. 

  • “Here comes Mr Postmouse”

    This week in Rabbits we read the story ‘Here Comes Mr Postmouse’. We role played the characters in the story using a croaky voice for the dragon and a squeaky voice for Mr Postmouse. 

  • Moving picture

    This week in DT we designed a draft of a moving picture. We had to draw a line using a ruler, then half the paper and cut along the line. We then chose a type of transport to draw. Vinuli chose to draw a submarine and Umar drew a fire engine. 


  • Book Week

    This week was book week, we learnt about the story ‘Coming to England’ by Floella Benjamin. We looked at the country Trinidad which is where Floella came from and spoke about how she wrote her book from her memory. We wrote a fact file about her, got to taste fruits from her country and put together a Caribbean dance. 


    This week in Rabbit class we designed ourselves as superheroes! We came up with a superhero name using alliteration and drew ourselves as superheroes. We labelled our pictures and wrote sentences describing what powers we have.   

  • Scientists

    This week in Squirrels and Rabbit class we have become scientists investigating animals to see if they are carnivores, herbivores, or omnivores.
