This week...

  • We started thinking about our new topic on 'Family & Friends'
  • We played classmate bingo using boards with our faces
  • We ordered family members according to size
  • We used transport pictures to make simple repeating patterns
  • In assembly we sang a new song: 'Thank you for my friends'

Amethyst Class

One of our learning outcomes this week was to 'create and recreate patterns and build models'. The children have certainly enjoyed achieving this using tiddlywinks (counters), tubes and pebbles on the large mirrors. There have been some wonderful patterns created in our class.

Click on the children below to see the patterns that they made this week.

Emerald Class

We have been sequencing a variety of vehicles to make repeated patterns in our maths this week. Some of us have sequenced story photos too and have told Mrs Cumming our own version of events!

Next week...

  • Making 3D cityscapes from cardboard
  • ordinal numbers
  • comparing city/country life and recording our ideas
  • making a small world set to represent our class story


On PE days the children need to come to school wearing their full PE kit. It includes a white t-shirt, shorts, tracksuit bottoms and trainers. The children cannot take part unless they have the correct kit. As the weather is cold the children will wear their tracksuit bottoms in class, but still need shorts for in the hall.

Please bring your child's full school uniform to change into. We change into this after our PE session.

New school bags available at the uniform shop!

It was great to see so many of you at our Information Evening on Tuesday. We hope that you found it useful.

Class Parent

Thank you to Pauline Roberts (Olivia's mum) for volunteering to step in as class parent for the Amethyst class. I am sure you will be hearing from her soon.
