Larch Class

New Resources!

We were really excited to be able to spend the money which Ashton’s Mum raised on some new sensory resources for Larch. Here are some of the things that we bought. The RDA were also very happy to receive a donation!


Joint Learning Session

We love sharing what we have been learning with our parents, and we were really privileged to have four parents come and join our English lesson on Monday for our joint learning session. We all listened to the next chapter of The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton, and then talked about our own experiences of ice and snow. We then got to play with some pretend snow and wrote some sentences about it using time connectives. Below are some photos of us playing with the pretend snow!


Super Sponsorship!

A huge thank you to Ashton’s Mum, Gemma who sneakily did a sponsored walk for Larch class in the Summer and to my huge surprise, presented me with a cheque for nearly £450 earlier this week! She was keen to support us with some sensory resources for Larch class and also give some money towards the RDA for horse-riding. We are immensely grateful and have already planned with Larch children what we should buy… watch this space for photos of what we have spent the money on!


Funny faces!

In PSHE this half-term we are learning about ourselves! We are communicating our likes and dislikes and thinking about the similarities and differences between us and other people. Last week we made some ‘self portraits’ using collage and colouring – do you like them?


The Enchanted Wood

In English we have started a new unit, ‘The Enchanted Wood’. Yesterday we heard a rumour that there was something mysterious about the tree outside our classroom. When we went outside we found a fairy door! We think there could be elves or fairies living in the tree. We wrote some sentences about what we thought might be in the tree, using lego bricks to help us structure our sentences. Today we read the first chapter of The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton. We were excited to find out that Frannie, Beth and Jo have found an enchanted wood. We learnt that enchanted means magic and discussed what we thought might be in the enchanted wood.


Alresford Show

We’re so pleased to win the Countryside Competition again this year! On Saturday, our work was displayed at the Alresford Country Show. Tatiana came to collect the trophy, which will be displayed in our library for the rest of the year.


Best memories

We wrote about our best memories of this year and illustrated them. Have a look!


Class assembly

We really enjoyed sharing our countryside project learning with the whole school through our Larch class assembly. We were able to share all the things we had been learning about bees and what we did on the Countryside day. We were also very excited to tell the whole school that we have won the competition for the 3rd time in a row! A huge thank you to all the parents who came and supported us.


Hooke Court

We are really pleased that all the Year 5s had a great time at Hooke Court this week. They loved learning about the Tudors. Alex said that his favourite thing was playing snakes and ladders! They joined in with different Tudor activities and even had a Tudor banquet!


We won!

We’re really pleased to say that we won the Countryside education project again, for the 3rd year in a row!

This is what the judges said:

‘Liss Junior School: Pupils from the Resource Provision Unit had visited Wintershill Farm and enjoyed a wide variety of activities exploring many aspects of farming. The project had clearly benefitted from the farm visit, although it was evident, that even before the visit they had begun to explore the world of bees. The project was highly focussed, covering a huge range of topics, across all curriculum areas. The project included making bee life cycle spinning wheels, observational drawings of bees, making a model hive, creating tessellations & mazes, 3D models of bees, cooking project which included honey flapjacks which were delicious, and a large, colourful bee collage that had been made up of individual A4 sheets that made up the whole. The children were incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable as they shared
their love of outdoor learning and their visit to the farm. The Junior Category this year has been won by Liss Junior School for their wonderful exploration into the world of bees, which enhanced so many
areas of the national curriculum. They were particularly impressed with the flapjacks and how the pupils had become so passionate about the subject’.

Come and see our work at the Alresford show on Saturday 7th September and watch us collect our trophy!
