YEAR TWO

Happy new year!

Although it has been a short week, the children have come back to school with great enthusiasm ready for the new year.

In English we have started reading our new story ‘Meerkat Mail.’ The children were delighted to hear about all of the places Sunny visited in his travels and enjoyed miming events from the story. In maths we have been learning about money and have been practising identifying the value of coins and notes. In PSHE we have been learning about keeping safe. We were introduced to Harold the giraffe and thought about rules about using medicines safely. In R.E. we discussed what is family and activities we might do with our families.

YEAR ONE

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a well-rested break. The children have been excited to tell us about their Christmas break and have shared what they have been up to. The children settled back into school smoothly!

This week in Maths, we introduced numbers to 20, which involved recognising and writing numerals, as well as writing in words. We have been working on adjectives and verbs this week in English. In PHSE, we have been looking at the importance of sleep in maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. We also talked about simple bedtime routines that promote healthy sleep. In Art, we explored different types of lines; children drew continuous lines of different thicknesses, sizes and shapes.

RECEPTION

We have been so impressed with the children’s return to school – the children have remembered all of our school rules and they have been playing beautifully together. We have loved hearing all about their time off and what they got up to. We have discussed the new year and what this means.

Our story this week has been ‘Have you filled a bucket today’ which is all about filling another person’s imaginary bucket with kind things which make them happy. You can also be a ‘bucket dipper’ by saying or doing things that aren’t kind, but this makes people sad. We have been thinking of all the ways we can fill other children’s and our family and friend’s buckets, as well as sorting different actions into ‘filling or taking’ out of our buckets.

We have recapped our phonics sounds so far, ready to learn some new ones next week and reminded ourselves of key mathematic principles we learnt in the autumn term.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the extremely kind Christmas gifts we received, we are very grateful.

Happy New Year!

NURSERY

It has been lovely welcoming back the children after the Christmas break and seeing their smiley faces again! We hope you’ve all had a restful break.

We have kicked off the Spring term with the book Wow Said The Owl and used this as a starting point for lots of colour fun, including paint mixing, drawing rainbows, sorting colours and playing colour games. We’ll continue our colour theme next week too.

03/01/2024

We hope you had a great break and have a happy new year 🥳

We can’t wait to welcome the children back to school tomorrow (Thursday) at 08:35.

See you then 😃

YEAR TWO

What a jam-packed week. We thank you for all your efforts this term and look forward to Spring term. We practiced for our play and put on not just one performance but two - getting better each time. The children should feel proud of their hard work and dedication to their roles. This week we have written our delightful retelling of The Snowman using our vocabulary and plans from last week. In maths we have sorted 3D shapes by their properties and noticed and recreated patterns in 2D and 3D shapes. We continued to learn about how materials can be changed when forces are applied to them in our science topic, materials and their properties. In art we have completed and sealed our wonderful Clarice Cliff inspired clay mugs. We must remind you they are for decorative purposes only – do not drink out of them. Have a restful and merry holiday – see you next term!

YEAR ONE

What an incredible time we have had. The children have worked their little socks off and we are so proud of everything they have achieved in their first term in Year One. New friendships have blossomed, confidence has grown and a love of learning has flourished. Year One is the year that all of those foundations of learning fall into place. These last few weeks have been especially busy with all of the Christmas preparations and celebrations taking place. We saw a tear or two shed at the carol concert yesterday. Didn’t they do well! To perform in unfamiliar surroundings in front of a huge audience is a massive ask, but each and every one of them succeeded and sang their little hearts out. The children enjoyed watching Receptions Christmas performance at the beginning of this week – lots of the children were reminded of the parts they played last year. The Christmas lunch was a huge success with laughter from the jokes in their crackers filling the hall. Aside from all of the Christmas excitement this week, we have also squeezed in quite a lot of learning! Our book of the week was Stick Man – Julia Donaldson. The children were writing about the journey of stick man. We wrapped up our history topic on toys which the children have thoroughly enjoyed and in maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and discussing their properties. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this term. We are so thankful for our wonderful cards, gifts and well wishes. You have truly spoilt us. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

RECEPTION

Tied in with our story of the week, The Jolly Christmas Postman, we’re sure you’d agree that the children were amazing in their Christmas performance on Tuesday. The children have worked so hard to practise their lines and songs and remember where they should be!

This week we have learnt about the Christmas story and why Christians celebrate Christmas. The children enjoyed a Christmas lunch on Wednesday with crackers and jokes!

We all enjoyed a Christmas party on Friday to finish the week.

We have sent home many of the sounds and ‘Harder to Read and Spell’ words that the children have learnt this term. The children should be able to read and write these words and sounds. They could spend some time practising and reading over the holidays to help consolidate learning.
We hope you all have a lovely Christmas break and we look forward to seeing you in the new year!

NURSERY

This week, we have had lots of Christmas fun! We have enjoyed many Christmas crafts, including tissue paper Santa’s and tinsel Christmas trees. We have also enjoyed cutting and sticking from magazines to make our Christmas lists, as well as being Santa’s elves and wrapping presents for each other!

On Wednesday we performed our Christmas carol concert and WOW! The children all did so well with their beautiful singing and remembering the actions too. Well done children! We hope you all enjoyed the concert and the festive biscuit decorating afterwards, lots of sugar was consumed by all 😊

We hope you all have a happy, safe Christmas and we look forward to welcoming you back in January.

YEAR TWO

We were lucky enough to be invited over to the Junior School site this week to watch the Year 3 and 4 concert - it was fantastic! They all sung beautifully, and the actions were really well rehearsed. We were complimented on our excellent listening and manners. In English we have been preparing for our narrative writing next week. We have read and watched The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. We have created banks of adjectives, adverbs and similes and practiced using co-ordinating conjunctions in sentences. In maths we have counted and identified faces, edges, and vertices on 3D shapes. We have looked at the terrible consequences of The Great Fire of London, became architects and redesigned London considering how to make the city safer. In Art we have finished painting our Clarice Cliff inspired mugs - we can’t wait to take them home! During Science we found that some materials change shape when force is applied.

YEAR ONE

This week in Year 1, we have been learning to find a part using subtraction and subtracting on a number line. We were very grateful to participate in a workshop from the Surrey Heath Museum, Old Toys Workshop, which Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed.

For science, we have been exploring and identifying some evergreen Christmas plants, including Holly, Mistletoe, and Ivy. Year 1 has also been responsible with their learning by evaluating and reflecting on the fruit salad they made last week for D&T. We have also been busy practising for our Carol concert. Towards the end of the week, we had a special visit from the Elf, the children were thrilled to meet the Elf and have really enjoyed it. The children are excited and ready to perform next week!

RECEPTION

This week, as we have charged into everything Christmas, our story of the week has been The Elves and the Shoemaker. We have listened to different versions of the story and discussed how being kind gives kindness in return. The children have designed their own shoes, written letters to the elves and practised their workshop skills!

On top of our sound recapping, the children learnt the sound ch this week. They chopped up fruit, made paper chains and used chalk outside. The children made some brilliant HRS word baubles to go on the class trees!
In maths we have focussed on 1 more and 1 less as well as recapping key skills.
The children have loved having a class elf keeping an eye on them and getting up to mischief each day.
We have been practising our play and songs lots ready for our performance next week!!

NURSERY

This week, we continued our learning about winter; painting snowmen, enjoying crazy soap (blue snow!) sensory play and creating our own large scale snowmen models.

Our learning has seamlessly moved on to Christmas and we’ve enjoyed reading the book Why I Love Christmas. We have developed our PSED skills of taking turns to speak and listening to our friends. During our circle time discussions, we have been talking about what we each love about Christmas. This week, some of the children even got to have a ride in Mrs Aylott’s sledge, using our strong muscles to pull our friends along. We have been using mathematical vocabulary of ‘biggest’, ‘smallest’, ‘bigger than’ and ‘smaller than’ to compare Santa’s presents and put them in order – maybe you could try ordering and comparing your toys at home?!

The children loved raising money for Phyllis Tuckwell, Hospice Care. We completed our run and raised a lot of money for a great charity.

The children LOVED last week's Christmas Disco. A massive thank you to our PTA and parent helpers for making it such a success. A special thank you to our hardworking staff for supporting too.

YEAR TWO

This week we have had an informative visit from the education officer of Surrey Fire and Rescue Service to tell us about dangers of lighters and matches. We learnt that if there’s a fire we must Get out, Stay out, and Call 999. We have had our first rehearsal of our Christmas play on the stage; we are so excited for you to listen to our singing and watch our acting! In maths we have drawn 2D shapes and looked at lines of symmetry. In English we have written our chronological report about the Great Fire of London as a newspaper including subheadings, facts and conjunctions. In history we have explored fire safety equipment from 1666 compared to now. In science we have carried out an experiment investigating absorbency of different materials.

YEAR ONE

Another jam packed week of fun in Year one. We thoroughly enjoyed ending the week making our fruit salads. We chose the ingredients from the results of our taste testing a few weeks ago. Hopefully the children will enjoy eating them at home with you all. Our book of the week was Dogger by Shirley Hughes which we will continue into next week. It is a very emotive story that links in well with our PSHE. The children have been writing about Dave’s feelings when he lost Dogger. In maths we have been taking away using a number of strategies, counting back, crossing out and finally using a number line. This weather has been spot on for our hibernation topic in Science this week. The children have been looking at how and why animals hibernate. We wrapped the week up with the very festive PTA Christmas disco which everyone loved. There are some awesome dance moves in Year One for sure!

RECEPTION

This week we have been focussing on the story - The Gingerbread Man. The children were so excited to see a video of the gingerbread man running through their classrooms and created wanted posters to see if they could catch him. Each child made and decorated their own gingerbread man, following simple instructions. They also learnt parts of the story by joining in with repetition. They have also constructed bridges for the gingerbread man to cross the river and set up their own gingerbread bakery. It has been brilliant to see the children act out the story and come up with some great ideas during drawing club.

In our phonics we have learnt the new sounds; y, z and qu – making yo-yos, putting stripes on zebras and decorating queens.
In maths, we have been talking about the days of the week, what we do during the day and in what order and learning about the difference between night-time and daytime.

On Monday we had a very special visitor – Dr Bull. She spoke to the children about the human body, why we have bones and how we can look after them. The children asked some fantastic questions.
This week we started practising our Christmas Performance in the hall, putting together our songs that we have learnt, the children can’t wait for you to see it.

NURSERY

This week, we finished off our learning about ‘People Who Help Us’; creating police officers or firefighters out of toilet roll tubes, and enjoying more imaginative play outside, building houses.

On Wednesday, we moved on to our learning about Winter, enjoying the story If Winter Comes, Tell It I’m Not Here! We have talked about the differences between the seasons, and sorted pictures and objects into which season they match with. We have enjoyed ice play, exploring how ice melts and trying to free the objects that were frozen in the ice! We discovered that pouring warm water on the ice helps it melt faster! We painted our own snowmen and we’ve used playdough to make our own dough snowmen, aren’t they brilliant?
