The children have come back after Christmas with lots of new interests. We have looked into weddings and had our own. We have explored addition of two single digit numbers. We have talked about and practiced keeping our selves clean and healthy and with the cold weather has brought lots of discussion around ice and the opportunity to make our own different coloured Ice.

Mini Beasts in Chestnut Class

Chestnuts have had a wonderful first term and came back ready to get stuck in. Before half term we explored harvest and pumpkins. Children looked and felt inside a variety of pumpkins, carved them and even tried to plant the seeds. Coming back we have been searching for mini beasts and talking about how to look after living things.

First Week At School

It has been a pleasure welcoming our new Chestnut class to Newlands. They have settled in really quickly and have had a wonderful time exploring their new learning environment. Some visitors to school on Thursday were taken by how mature the children are and how quickly they have embraced life at primary school. When in the classroom or having lunch with the children it feels like they have been here for months instead of just 4 days.
