Fruity fractions!

In  maths this week we have been learning to recognise different fractions. We used our knowledge of fractions to design a fruit kebab and on Thursday we got to make (and eat) them! We had to decide what fractions we were going to cut our fruit into and then follow our design to make our kebabs. They were delicious!

Welcome to the new school year!

Apologies for not posting for so long, we have been having some technical difficulties.

It’s been a great start to the year with lots of amazing learning going on. This week we learnt about reversible changes in science, and found out about freezing and melting ice. We had some different objects frozen in ice and had to try and use our scientific brains to work out how to get them out! We made predictions and tried to use the correct scientific language.

Countryside Day at Bereleigh Estate

We have had an amazing (and very soggy) day at Bereleigh Estate today. We went to a Countryside Day, to learn more about the working countryside. We started by learning about crops and looking at some different farm machinery before getting the chance to sit in the tractor! Then we looked at the greenhouse and walled garden and all planted a bean to take home. After that we went into the woods and learnt about the different animals which live in the woods. We then had lunch at a neighbouring farm and got a chance to see their sheep and cattle. It was very funny when some sheep escaped and Miss Jefferson had to help hold the gate open to get them safely back in their pen! We also learnt about the different uses of wool and how it is spun. We will be learning more about sheep over the next few weeks and the work we do will be judged and displayed at the Alresford Country show.

Trip to March Foundation

We had a fantastic trip today to the March Foundation. We went to a field to play some games and then went for a walk along the canal. In the canal we spotted some moorhens, a pair of ducks with their ducklings and some swans with their cygnets! We were very excited to see the cygnets as we have been looking at the story of The Ugly Duckling in our English lessons. After lunch we drew some plants, then went for a treasure hunt in the garden. We had such a fantastic day!

Sensational sewing and super shopping!

Due to technical difficulties we have been unable to publish a blog post for a couple of weeks but now we’re back!

This week has been another fantastic week of learning in Larch class.


We have been learning about the value of different coins. We set up a ‘shop’ in Larch class and took it in turns to pay for items with different coins:

We have also been learning how to sew running stitch. It was super tricky but we used resilience!

Acting out!

This week we have been thinking about the settings used in different stories. We listened to two stories: ‘Katy Morag’ and ‘Iggy Pig’s Dark Night’ and acted them both out. Here are the photos!

Larch Grand Opening

After weeks of waiting and desperately trying to peer our heads around our new classroom door, the day finally came this week for us to move into our brand new classroom! We have loads more space and a small room to do some quiet work in. We have lots of brand new things, we are so lucky! We all used reciprocity and worked together to move all the things into our new class. It was hard work! We also baked two special fruit cakes to give to our guests. On Wednesday we had lots of special visitors who came to the grand opening. School council came along too. We love our new class!

Waiting outside for the ribbon cutting:
