Autumn Term

Lions Belton House Trip

Lions had a fantastic trip to Belton House last week for their Autumn walk. They enjoyed listening to an Autumn story on the steps of the house before embarking on an Autumn treasure hunt around the grounds. They were fantastic at spotting features of Autumn around them and used their knowledge of senses to describe what they could see, hear, smell and touch. After a lovely walk they returned to school for some hot chocolate and biscuits. Well done Lions class!

Lions Last Week of Term


We have had a fantastic final week of term in Lions class. On Tuesday we had our family reading morning and enjoyed reading with our grown-ups. We have written magic spells to make our teachers disappear and then created the potions following our plans during independent learning time. Lots of us have been busy in the construction area making models like the Houses of Parliament after learning about Guy Fawkes and then we created some vibrant firework pictures with them too. A popular activity was cutting up the giant pumpkin and exploring the insides ready for Halloween. Have a lovely half-term holiday Lions!

Tigers Family Tuesday

Thank you so much for all the parents and carers coming into Tigers class this morning to share a love of reading. The children loved having extra time with their adults and reading Superworm together at the end!

Lions Fruit Salad Making


In Lions this week we have been making our very own fruit salads. We learnt how to safely cut fruit with a knife and mixed it all together. We tried some of the fruit and described the taste and texture using words from our senses lesson last week. We were able to take our fruit salads home to show our families. 

Our First Week in Lions :) 


We have had a lovely first week in Lions class. We have been making our class animal crafts for the display, writing about our holidays and exploring the classroom. 

Our First Day in Tigers :) 

We have had such a fun day in our new classroom! We started the day by telling each other what our favourite adventure this summer has been and then we went singing with Mr Higgins. The rest of the day we have enjoyed exploring our new classroom and spending time with friends, old and new! Have a look at what we have been upto today...
