Disgusting Sandwich

We have begun our work on the Disgusting Sandwich. Today we learnt instructions about how to make a sandwich. We used Talk for Writing to help us remember the step. We will practise this and seesaw some of our performances.

Meanwhile we have been very busy practising for our class assembly which is tomorrow afternoon at 2.15pm.

The children are excited to be watching our pet bluetit which has now laid 8eggs. You can watch the progress of this live via the bird bird web cam , follow the link to this through the school website.

Book week -twisted tales

This year we are looking at alternative versions of traditional stories. Sycamore Class are looking at Cinderella and a version called Prince Cinders.

Today we have compared this to the original story and then made stick puppets of some of the characters to create own own alternative story to tell our friends.

We also had a great time sharing our favourite stories with Elm Class.




What a great start to term 4 ,  a morning out in the fresh air ! The children behaved brilliantly and had a fantastic time this morning at Avon Valley College completing a series of orienteering challenges. They worked with other members of Key Stage 1 on problem solving and map reading.

I was very proud of them and they all tried very hard. Special mention to Gilbert who won the Woodborough team award with his partner Finley from Year 2.


Safer Internet day

Today is Safer Internet day. We began with an assembly where we were told about this years moto- Create, Connect and share respect.  We also met the 3 monsters who told us a story about being careful to make kind comments on line.

In class we discussed the sorts of things we like to do on the internet and how to keep safe. We thought about our ‘digital footprint’ and how to be careful about the things we share.


Emperor’s new clothes


We are really enjoying our topic and have been thinking about writing a new story. We have explored the story and characters using storytelling walks, play dough and dressing up. Today we used drama to think about the next chapter of the story about  a greedy queen who demands to have the biggest brightest ruby in the world !

The children thought it was very funny when Mrs Barratt , Mrs Crichard and Mrs Mc Cormick acted the parts of a greedy queen and two tricksters. Can you guess who was who ?

Freeze frames

During our English lesson today the children were thinking about traditional fairy tales.  They were asked to think of a freeze frame or short action to show their chosen tale to the rest of the class.  The children then guessed the stories.

Can you work out which fairy tales are being acted out?
