Welcome to our class page


This afternoon, as part of our science work,  the children had a walk around the school grounds to identify and name different types of plants and flowers in the local environment. We saw lots of different plants and learnt some new plant names too.




The children are really enjoy reading, 'The Twits' together by Roald Dahl.

This week we are reading 'The Minpins'. 





In history, we are learning about the lives of significant individuals, including monarchs and explorers. We have found out about Elizabeth I and Elizabeth II and made comparisons about their lives. In our Class Museum, we found out how Jubilees were celebrated and remembered. The children have been very interested in Kings and Queens and have even shared some information with the class.





Multi Skills Invasion Festival

This morning the children visited Eastbourne Sports Complex, to take part in a Multi Skills Festival for Key Stage One, the focus was on Invasion Games. The children had the opportunity to work individually, with a partner and as part of a team to develop their PE skills.





On Monday, the children planted broad beans and sunflower seeds. Over the next few weeks, we will water them regularly and hopefully watch them grow.




Here is the homework for this half term. 



Here is the curriculum newsletter for the Summer Term.



On Tuesday, the children had a wonderful visit to Hall Hill Farm. They fed, petted and held many different animals. They went on a bumpy tractor ride and watched a sheep race. The children were extremely well behaved and were a credit to our school.







Yesterday, the children took part in a streamed live science lesson. They joined Farmer Fiona to learn how she cares for her sheep, cows and pigs at each stage of their lives.  They also learnt about some of the jobs that a farmer does in a day. This was a great opportunity to find out about looking after farm animals, before our visit to Hall Hill Farm.






The children have had a wonderful afternoon for World Book Day.   They  designed their own bookmarks, listened to a poem called 'The Bed Book', by Sylvia Plath and then designed their own magical bed.  Finally, they all relaxed with a hot chocolate drink and a biscuit, whilst reading their favourite books with friends.
