Meet Fluffy

Meet Fluffy

Fluffy is our class cuddly toy. He spends time with us in our classroom Monday to  Friday and at the weekend he gets to go home with someone from our class. So far he has had some great adventures! The children record what they do with Fluffy (with some help from parents and grandparents) and include any drawings, writing and photographs of their weekend together.

Writing Stars

Writing Stars

When the children started in September they were all given a star to have a go at writing their name on. These are displayed in our classroom on our Writing Stars Wall. Each term the children will write their name on their star. They are all working so hard to write their name correctly and the improvements we can see are already amazing!

Reaching for the Rainbow

We love celebrating things we have achieved in School and we love to hear about achievements outside of school. Therefore, every half term the children are given a cloud for parents to record something achieved outside of school. This is then shared and celebrated with everyone in our class. We display these on our Reaching for the Rainbow display board. It has been great to celebrate the excellent swimmers we have in our class, those that now get ready for school independently and those that are learning to ride a bike, or even a horse!
