Families Learning Together - Come into school and learn new skills alongside your child

In Progression Step 2 this term we are focusing on Science and Technology alongside Expressive Arts and Maths and Numeracy. Our topic is based upon the story 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl. We will be exploring how the properties of materials have changed as well as the chocolate making process. We will be taking the children to Cadbury World to explore this process first hand. 

 

We will continue to develop our understanding of our values:
Respect
Aspiration

Teamwork

Equity

 

If you arrive before 8:20am please wait in the playground.  Staff from the class will collect your child when it is time to come into school. If you arrive after this time an adult will be ready to collect your child from you or as you pass through the gates. Please do not linger in this area; staff will supervise the children when they are taking off their coats and coming into the classroom.

Spring 2 - Our Learning

Years 1 and 2 had a fun mix-up afternoon learning about the important religious festivals of Ramadan and Easter.

This week we have taking part in British Science Week. The theme is time. After learning about food during Tudor Times, we decided to have a go at growing our own potatoes. We have been letting our potatoes chit on the windowsill for a few weeks. We cannot wait to plant them.

Mother Tina came to talk to the children about Eucharist. The children learnt a lot about the service.

Maisie took part in the “Big Garden Birdwatch”. Maisie spent an hour looking at the garden/street and tallying up which birds she saw land. Maisie submitted her results online to help the RSPB understand which birds are still around the area.

In Progression Step 2 this term we are focusing on Humanities alongside Expressive Arts.

As part of our topic we will be composing diaries, reciting poems and creating a piece of artwork in the style of the artist Ian Viggars.  We will be taking the children to Llancaiach Fawr to find out about Tudor life.

Take a look at the presentation that Mrs Vaughan proudly presented to the governing body...

All working together

We chose ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’ as a story with a moral which shows our core values. Here are some of our story maps we created to help us with our writing.

We are taking inspiration from Alma Thomas in preparation for our weaving project. She used her local area for inspiration. We are doing the same. She was such an aspirational lady.

Trip to the pantomime!
