Peppard Class – 18th September 2016

Well done Peppard Class!  They have all managed the first full week well.  We have had lots of fun getting to know one another and it has been a joy to watch new friendships being formed.

We started our phonics lessons this week.  We have learned some new sounds and we have used the ipads to practise letter formation.  The children have been using the Hairy Letters App if you would like to try it at home.





In maths we have been learning about numbers and counting.  The children have applied this skill throughout the classroom and outside.  We have used playdough to make cakes and we used our maths to help us.


The water tray has been very popular in the hot weather!  The children used different sized containers to compare which one held the most water.  They then bathed the babies.  We observed some lovely sharing and caring.


Here we are going out for our first PE lesson.  The children were amazing!  We started the lesson practising our road safety in the playground before crossing the road.  We then did some team games.  The children followed the instructions and took part in a team really well.







Springwood’s week – 9th September


We have had a fantastic week back at school.

On Monday, we painted self portraits. The year 6s had their first experience with their buddies and have been brilliant in making them feel welcome.

In our Literacy unit we have have started to read Michael Morpurgo’s book ‘Friend or Foe’. We have really enjoyed it so far and have done role play, as well as writing a diary entry from the point of view of one of the main characters.


For our big write this week, we wrote a recount of our summer holidays. The children worked really hard and we have all looked back over our writing to understand how to make it even better next time.

Our maths has been centred around place value addition and we have all worked hard at our mental maths, including times tables and number bonds.

Next week, Springwood are out on residential trips. Year 5 are going to Kilve Court, and Year 6 are travelling to Wales. Check back next week for updates!

Peppard Class – 9th September 2016

Welcome to our Peppard Class page!

We have had a wonderful first week.  The children have been delightful and barely a tear!  Well done everyone.

We have been learning about the story of Pete the Cat. This linked into our focus of rhyme.  We looked at some rhyming pictures and chose the odd one out.

In maths, the children have been counting and matching numerals to quantity.  We will continue with this next week.  We have also been singing some number songs and rhymes.

The children have helped to create an agreed set of rules for our class.  They then helped us make a display.  They have been really good at following the rules and supporting each other.

Here a few pictures of the children settling in.
