This page is for our Early Years, Year 1 and Year 2 children who make up the infants class. We will be putting regular updates on here showing what the children are doing throughout the year.
The children were invited to take their teddies to a picnic at Bishop Philip's house. We all had a great time, we enjoyed eating our lunch in the lovely garden then Bishop Philip showed the children some special places in his house including the chapel. We also played in the garden and enjoyed a story. Bishop Philip made us all feel very welcome and we really appreciated his invitation.
The children have explored and evaluated root vegetable salads such as coleslaw, potato salad and beetroot salad. They talked about what they liked and what they could do to make the salad even better. They used this information to make their own root vegetable salads. The children made sure they washed their hands and were very careful when cutting the different ingredients. They then tasted their salad and decided what they needed to do to improve it.
Pendle Sculpture Trail
As we have been learning about sculptures and the history of local events, we went on a trip to the Pendle Sculpture Trail. The children had a great time exploring the vast array of sculptures in the woods and even enjoyed walking up the steep hill. Please ask your child what their favourite sculpture was.
Red Nose Day
The children looked great sporting their noses for Red Nose Day. No rare or ultra rare for us though!
World Book Day
We celebrated World Book Day by coming to school dressed as a book character. The children had put in lots of effort and looked amazing. They also brought in the book their character from or a favourite book. Stories were shared throughout the day and the children did activities around books and characters.
Travelling Ted's Adventures
We have been learning all about the local area and looked at the types of houses that are in the village and the types of houses the children live in.
The children were then set the task of designing and making a suitable home for Travelling Ted that would be weather proof.
Then came the exciting part, we tested the houses to see if they would withstand the wind and rain. Watch the videos to see what happened!
The children have been learning about different artists, primary and secondary colours. They have explored mixing paints to create their own colours. Then using the colours to create their own pictures in the style of different artists.
Roald Dahl Day
The children had lots of fun celebrating Roald Dahl day. They we invited to dress up as one of his book characters and looked fabulous. They also took part in Roald Dahl maths, reading, word searches and enjoyed some of his shorter stories and rhymes.
Year 1 and 2 parents, we ask that you hear your child read a little every day and talk to them about the book.
Reception children will have a book with no words that they can tell a story about. They will also have sound cards to bring home. Please encourage them to say the sounds the letters make. They can also be used to make simple words with. If you would like more information about these please speak to us.
All children are encouraged to count objects around them and look at numbers they may see in their environment.
Reception children have brought home letters about 'wow' moments. Please feel free to share anything your child has done that they or you are proud of, no matter how small it seems, on the slips sent home. If you would like more slips they are located on the window inside the classroom door.
