Our Learning

Spring Term 2019

This term we have been learning about cold places and transport. For our cold places topic, we used our cake stall money to adopt a penguin and a polar bear. We learnt all about the places in which they live and looked at all the different animals which live together.

When we were learning about transport, we did lots of exciting things. We visited the Train Museum in York and we even washed the teacher’s cars!

Autumn Term 2018

What a busy first term we have had at school. We have been busy learning about ourselves and our homes and have had lots of fun along the way!






To finish our ‘People who help us’ topic, we held a dressing up day. We all came dressed up as something we would like to be when we are older. We have high aspirations, with everything from doctors to vets and from racing car drivers to architects. We used our green screen to take us to our future places of work and thought about why we would be so great at our jobs! Here is a little sneak peek …


What a lot of snow we have been having! We went outside into our learning garden to make mini snowmen! They looked fantastic and we loved having fun in the snow.

To finish off our pets topic, we had a visit from the Dogs Trust. To show us how to look after a dog, they came with Winnie the Pug! She was such a lovely dog and we all enjoyed finding out about how we should be safe around dogs.

As we have been learning about pets, we have set up a vet’s surgery in our classrooms. We have been taking great care of our pets. The receptionists have done a fantastic job of sorting out our appointments, and we have been carefully describing what is the matter with our pets.

It’s snowing! Look at the snowflakes we have caught on our coats, in our hair and on our frozen card.


We have been learning about pets. Look at our amazing split pin pets!


After our Christmas holiday we spent time sharing our news with our friends.


We really enjoyed sharing stories with Year 5 and 6.

On Bonfire Night we used the laptops to make bonfire pictures. We used 2publish+ to fill our page and then use a splatter tool to make firework shapes.

Our tortoise is preparing to hibernate and we have been watching him really carefully. Whilst we were thinking about animal homes, we went outside to make new homes for some animals. We used natural materials and practiced our knot tying skills.
