Week 3


This week in Maths we have been learning about capacity and exploring it using water and sand with a variety of different container sizes. The children have been brilliant at explaining full, nearly full, nearly empty and empty and showing us how that looks.


In English we discussed our visit to the farm and ordered the things we did. Then we wrote about what we saw independently.


Have a wonderful weekend.

Grimsbury Farm


Dormouse Class had a fabulous visit to the farm. We played with the guinea pigs and rabbits, fed the sheep and bottle fed 2 lambs!  We all managed to catch a goat when we went "goat fishing" and the children even enjoyed picking up the horse poo!

Week 2


We have continued our learning about Minibeasts this week. The children have been recalling fun facts our favourite is that one type of snail has 20,000 teeth! The children laughed when Mrs McDonough said that why all her plants in her garden keep disappearing! They have been reading descriptions and making up their own as well as labelling different insects.


In Maths we have been exploring shape. The children have been challenged t spot shapes within other shapes, for example, triangles hiding in squares. We folded paper to explore this initially then challenged the children to use shapes to make new ones. It was especially tricky to remember some of the shape names this week but 'parallelogram' is now a favourite.


Have a wonderful weekend.

Week 1


What a wonderful first week back in school. The children have been making the most of the weather making obstacle courses to challenge each other in the outdoor area. We have started our learning on minibeasts looking at the difference between fiction and non-fiction books, playing guessing games and describing them.


In Maths we have been exploring odd and even numbers. we have shared different numbers into equal groups . If the groups are equal the number is even and if there is 1 left over that means it's odd. The children have been investigating this with their talk partner and have been able to explain their learning brilliantly.

We hope you enjoyed the summer dances.

Have a wonderful weekend.
