Attract or Repel?
This week we have continued to look at forces and magnets. We began the week looking at a range of metals and investigating if they were magnetic and non magnetic. We have also been investigating magnetic poles and what poles attract and repel. In English, we have created our own class story! The children have […]
This week we have been learning about the Wright Brothers and the first powered flight. We compared them to the brave people from the past that we studied last term. Most children decided that they would NOT like to be on the plane that the Wright Brothers built! The children made their own paper planes […]
Music To My Ears
Reception enjoyed a music session with Mr Benson. We recapped some of the instruments we learnt about previously. We learnt that when people sing as a group it is called a choir. The style of singing was ‘my turn, your turn’, the children listened first then sang what we had heard. We had lots of […]
Jack and the Beanstalk
Our story of the week has been Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have loved the story, especially the giant!

Year 1 Explore the Great Outdoors
This week in Potter class the children have explored the outdoor area. We have searched for evergreen and deciduous trees and looked closely at the leaves to help us to classify them. Children have become scientists and thought of their own way of classifying the leaves based on their observations. Children have also extracted seeds […]
