Greys 16th December

The end of term has finally arrived and what a busy term it has been!

We have been out and about to lots of different places and learned so much about the town we live in. We’ve had lots of visitors into the classroom and finished the term with a spectacular performance of Straw and Order.


We have been busy making all sorts of decorations and cards this week.

We made traditional Christmas cakes with Mrs Barlow at the beginning of the week and decorated them the following day.


On Wednesday morning Mrs Steele came in and we had our annual Christmas sing along with her which was lots of fun.

On Thursday morning we split into teams and practised making our Christingles.



Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Clinkard and Mrs Barlow would like to thank all the children for making each day in Greys a fun filled place to work, to the parents for all their support at home and in the classroom and for all your lovely gifts, cards and thanks.

Show and Tell will be about Healthy Eating.

Wednesday – Immy

Thursday – Nancy

Friday – Jonathan

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope you all have a wonderful time with your families and friends.

Greys 2nd December

Greys class have begun their preparations for Christmas this week by learning all about the meaning of Advent and making Advent wreaths. They then presented all the information they had gathered in Church on Wednesday morning as part of our Advent service.

In Maths the Year 1s have been using beaded linesto add 2,3,4,5 and 6 to 2 digit numbers. The Year 2s have been using number squares, beaded lines and number lines to add and subtract 11, 12, 13, 21, 22 and 23 to and from 2 digit numbers.

In Literacy we have been looking at Silly poems and practised learning to recite and act out In the Land of the Flibbertigibbets by John Foster. It was so much fun and quite a few of us have taken the poem home to learn over the weekend.


On Friday we then wrote our own silly poems using alliteration, rhyme and repetition.

We worked in groups pretending to be members of Henley Tourist Information office and presented our own information talks on Henley to the rest of the class. It was surprising to see how much we have learned about Henley over the last few weeks.

In French we have been learning about La Famille and know the French words for Mummy, Daddy, Grandpa, Grandma, brother and sister.

The preparations for the Christmas play continue and thank you to those who have been practising with your children, it has made a huge difference and I would be grateful if you could continue to do so over the next week.

Homework this weekend is to design and create a musical instrument. The children will then be writing about their creations and reflecting on what went well and what they would change to improve their model.

Show and Tell for next week is


Monday – Dominic

Tuesday – Harrison

Wednesday – Lola

Thursday – Esme

Friday – Freya

Have a lovely weekend!
