Autumn Term 2019

A walk in the school woodland to discover all about our environment and the changes happening there in Autumn.

In Acorn Class, we shared the story of 'How the Bear Lost his Tail'. Unfortunately, the bear lost his tail trying to get some fish to eat from the icy water. The bear asked the children if they could help him by thinking of ways to free the fish from the ice. The children were only too happy to help the bear. They thought of different ideas and then tested them out. Here you can see the children testing out and observing their idea of putting the fish stuck in the ice into a bowl of warm water. They were so excited to see the fish escape from the ice. The bear will be so pleased.

Spring Term 2020

Book Themes


Spring 1 term, the children have shown a great interest in jungle animals.

We have focused on the following books in class, as well as sharing other stories, poems and non-fiction titles with a jungle theme.

The Lion who wanted to Love - Giles Andreae

Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae

Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae 

The Selfish Crocodile by Faustin Charles

Stinky by Ian Whybrow

Acorn Class enjoyed a tennis lesson by a coach from Goole Tennis club.


Acorn Class were invited to share in India Day by Elm and Cherry classes. We were all welcomed into the hall by colourful Rangoli patterns and given an extra warm welcome with a Bindi mark on our forehead if we wanted one. Elm and Cherry classes shared their models of the Taj Mahal and written facts about India. We were invited to taste chapatis and chai tea made by the children and finally we were treated to a Bollywood dance show by both classes. When we returned to our classroom we found out about the Hindu festival of Holi as we knew that Elm and cherry classes would be celebrating the end of their mission about India by throwing special coloured powder at each other.


Acorn Class were invited to see the new born lambs by Mr and Mrs Fozzard of School Farm next door.
