We can count in 5's!
In our Maths lessons, we have been learning to count forward and backwards to 50.
Today was a special end to our Spring term... we met Mylo!
I wonder who has been in Griffin class...
In art, we have been looking at print making using different objects in our environment. Just look at our fabulous creations!
We enjoyed walking around the 15 'Stations of the Cross' completed by the whole school. We discussed each station and talked about how Jesus must have been feeling at the time and we had time to reflect and pray.
We have been working on our Computing skills this week in Griffin class. The children have successfully logged onto their own computer and had a go at mark making!
In our Maths lessons, we have been looking at place value of numbers 1-100!
We are so excited to welcome the children back to school on Monday 8th March! Please see below a letter for all parents/guardians regarding the return to school.
Science Week 2021
Our science week this week has been based around our new school therapy dog, Mylo! He is so excited to meet you all. Take a look into our classroom and remote learning...
This week we have designed and made our own dog bed for Mylo!
Today we spoke about different mini beasts. We talked about what mini beasts are and where they can live. We then went on a science walk around the school grounds to see if we could observe any mini beasts in their natural habitat. We used magnifying glasses to observe the structure of different mini beasts then sketched them.
Today we had a very special visitor in school! Our new school therapy dog, Mylo came into school to meet us all! We watched a presentation all about Mylo, delivered by Mrs Hampson and discussed how we need to look after Mylo in order to keep him safe, healthy and able to complete his job in school.
Here is our Griffin class vet, Sonny, telling us all about how to care for our pets!

Families and Celebrations
Today, the children heard about how Jesus helped his mother Mary, and father on earth, Joseph as he grew up. Joseph was a carpenter and Jesus would have helped him carve items from wood. After hearing today's story the children created wooden stools and tables using wooden blocks and then decided to re-create a Temple made from wood as they had enjoyed hearing about the Presentation in the Temple the week before.
Joseph the carpenter, was an important figure in the early life of Jesus. Jesus would have enjoyed helping his father and making items from wood. Yasmin 's thinks that Jesus may have made a wooden box to put his schoolwork into.
Growth and Green fingers!
Throughout our topic lessons this half term we have been talking all about fruit, vegetables and food preparation. We have designed, made and evaluated our own fruit salads! Take a look at our fabulous creations...

Santa Dash 2020!
Today we took part in the school games, 'Santa Dash' - we had so much fun, with the rest of our bubble cheering us on!
God wanted Mary to be the mother of his Son. He sent an angel to ask her. Mary said "YES!" Mary loved God very much. During our RE lesson today, the children and Mrs. H! retold the story of the Visitation. Together, we explored how Mary might have felt and discussed how important Mary is in the life of Jesus.
Today, in the Griffin class the children were learning about Adam and Eve and how they committed the first "sin" against God.
