Creating Christmas cards, eating our Christmas dinner, sewing stockings, a trip to the cafe, making gingerbread biscuits, a trip to the shop, opening our Christmas presents from Miss Stone and Miss Dodds and of course our usual fantastic hard work in Maths, English and other subjects too! Merry Christmas everyone!

We; created our own fossils in science for our “rocks and soils” topic, sequenced and retold the Christmas story, wrote some amazing spellings, created our lists for our Christmas cards, created our Donkeys for the school Christmas Tree and we all enjoyed a hot chocolates, ice creams, and other fun surprises from our class advent calendar- I wonder what will be behind next weeks doors?!

This week we; explored some more ABBA songs in our Charanga Music session, shared and expressed feelings in PSHE about our families, explored our own feelings in Zones of regulation, created some “beaker pots” from the Beaker people in our topic session, continued our amazing spelling work, had fun in PE and made a hot choc too!

Autumn 2, Week 4! Lots of fabulous work this week; exploring properties of rocks and different types of rock in Science, creating our own stop-frame animations in Computing using the I-motion app, pretending to be “Captains” of our own boats during some drama time in English and making sure the boats we made were water-proof! Exploring the Jewish Festival of Shabbat during RE and keeping in check with our emotions in zones of regulation work too!

Autumn 2, Week 2- settling in well! A new science topic this half term all about rocks and souls and we kicked it off with a “rock hunt”. A new topic in computing, all about “stop-frame animation” and we made our own flip book animation as a start to this. In RE we are now exploring Judaism and had a great first lesson looking at symbols and objects associated with the Jewish community. Some wonderful spellings and Maths as always and a new English display too!

Autumn 2- Welcome back! A great first week back here for us and straight back into our hard work and fun lessons too! This week we had a mysterious package delivered to our class that simply said 'Grandpa's stuff@. Who did it belong to? What did the evidence inside mean? Could it be linked to our new literacy text? Time will tell... We explored the new climbing wall this week too- lots of fun! We have started our new PE for the half term- our focus is Gymnastics! Some of us created cave paintings for our Stone Age topic and finally we explored what we look like in our different zones for our Zones of regulation work! Well done all!

Week 8-our final week of our first half term together! Fun-filled , lots of laughter and plenty of hard work too, as well as some Halloween fun! Keeping up the great work with our spellings, continuing our salt-dough “peace doves”, finishing our last invasion games session in PE, comparing digital devices with non-digital devices in computing (creating the same image 2 different ways) and fantastic Maths work!

Week 7- lots of fun this week. We explored Marbling inks in Art as a part of our new printing unit, we worked as a team to sequence our English book correctly and had a challenge to retell the story in under 1 minute, we made a start on creating “Peace doves” in honour of Martin Luther King as a part of Black History work, we also made traffic lights out of fruit and smarties for Garrett Morgan’s work on creating traffic lights, worked on our agility and balance skills again in PE, relaxed in mindfulness and explored how our behaviour affects others in Zones of Regulation.

Week 6- This week we have; created ‘freeze frames’ in English to help us with our writing, written some fantastic spellings, created a science investigation to explore the speed of evaporation, expressed ourselves in zones of regulation and worked on our agility skills in PE!

Wow!

Week 4;- Another great week! We had our new Literacy Tree Hook with mysterious footprints and paintings all over our classroom floor, continued our great work in Maths, had some home-made tomato chutney courtesy of Miss Brock from our school garden, explored digital devices in Computing, investigated different Bibles in RE and relaxed our bodies and minds with some yoga too! Busy busy!

Week 3 and another fab week! We had assessments this week so in between our hard work we had lots of other projects on the go, designing Beebot worlds for our Beebot robots, creating and designing junk models of our favourite animals and lots of play and social interaction! Alongside this we had our other lessons; PSHE focusing on things we are proud of and setting goals for the year, zones of regulation, sorting our feelings into the correct zones to identify our emotions, and PE, focusing on the fundamental skills of movement!

A brand new year and a brand new class! Lots of fantastic work and settling in really well for the new pupils in the Nook! An excellent transition for all! Here we are showing some of the things we have done so far; independent work, decorating our PE bags, finding out about Zones of regulation and playing “guess the feeling” and listening to sensory stories! We are looking forward to our year ahead!
