Last week's attendance



This is your child’s Mission possible Homework Booklet for Autumn 2. The home learning activities are linked to the Mission that the children are focusing on and they will be carefully chosen to develop different skills in relation to a variety of curriculum subjects.

What we've been doing this week

The highlight of the week was definitely when Janet from Warburtons came to do some bread making with us. We learnt all about healthy eating first, then got to taste bread before making our own hedgehog bread bun!

We have continued with our writing and learning about Lost and Found this week in English. Some of us have been describing the penguin, we have been making winter artwork and also writing wanted posters. 

In science we were learning about groups of animals with Miss Clark. We will continue to learn about this next week. 

For Children In Need we had a karaoke! Some children got to perform, however, time did run out so the others will perform next week.  

We have loved learning a counting in 5s song, it has really helped us to learning how to do this. I have put the link on here for the children to watch and sing along at home. 


Some children have been using Phonics Play at home to practise their phonics. Any extra phonics work will support your child in class. 


Wow moments!
