Welcome Back!

The first week of half term is almost over and the children have certainly been busy! We have been performing and writing poems.


Today we went outside to look at our surroundings to help us create an autumn haiku.

A copy of the children's Topic homework was sent out today (17.10.16) but just in case it doesn't make its way home, here is an extra copy!


Have fun!

Autumn B spellings for practising at home.

'What is important to me'


This week the children in Cherry and Oak class were very lucky to work together to create a wall hanging for the hall.


They were asked to think about 'What is important to me' and their ideas were incorporated into the final result.  I'm sure you'll agree it looks great so far!


A huge thank you to Jill Denton for providing the children with such an amazing opportunity. 

Autumn A Spellings



Welcome to Cherry class! What a busy start to the term it has been.  Tomorrow we head off to the Museum of Somerset to experience the Pirate exhibition, so keep checking for photos.  On Monday we are taking part in an art project at Longrun Meadow and on Tuesday some of the children in Cherry & Oak class will be doing some weaving in groups to make a wall hanging for the hall.


The half termly newsletter will go out tomorrow and will be added to this page with details of your child's learning and homework. The spellings will also be posted for you to check each week.  The 'meet and greet' session this year is on Wednesday 21st September at 2.45 in Cherry class while the children are attending collective worship, I look forward to seeing you there.



Inspired by their time at Longrun Meadow, despite the rain, the children today used the natural objects they found in the school grounds to design animals.


They did a super job and had a lot of fun!
