stream1In Class Stream we love to learn by being active and have a creative, enjoyable and supportive environment where the children learn to be independent. The Reception children follow the EYFS Curriculum (see Curriculum section) and the Year 1 children follow the National Curriculum.

We cover six topics a year on a two year rolling programme and aim to incorporate an interesting trip into each to bring our ‘learning to life’. We enjoy Forest School sessions each week either in the woods or the nature area.

Shared Writing Week

Shared Writing Week

This week we have enjoyed Shared Writing Week across school. In every class we have explored the book by Kobi Yamada called ‘WHAT DO YOU DO WITH AN IDEA?’. The writing that we completed this week was shared across the whole school!

The book follows a young boy who suddenly gets an idea! It shows us his journey of feelings as he hides, grows and shares his idea.

Class Stream wrote Acrostic poems about ideas.

Class River wrote instructions about looking after a precious idea.

Class Estuary wrote newspaper reports about a world changing idea.

Class Ocean wrote 2 contrasting diary entries from the perspective of the little boy.

On Friday we gathered in house groups and shared our excellent writing. Teachers and children were wowed by neat handwriting, original ideas, descriptions, genre features, emotions and clear, loud reading. It was a very inspiring sharing time!

It was fantastic to see so many confident and proud writers.

We are already looking forward to the next Shared Writing Week!

Please come and see some samples of our work displayed in the school hall.

 

Visit to The Wild Place Project

We had a lovely sunny and dry day out at The Wild Place Project in Bristol. We saw bears, geladas, giraffes, cheetahs, okapi,,meerkats and lemurs. We learnt about how we can classify animals into different groups and went on a trail through the woods. It was a great day out and we listened really carefully.

Village Walk

We went for a walk around Huntley to learn about some of the places that are there.

We followed our route on a map.

Can you remember the names of these places?

We found the post box so that we could a letter to our house.

Swimming Lessons

We were all very brave during our swimming lessons and had a fantastic time!
