Don’t be a square, know your shapes!

This week we have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We had so much fun making shapes out of play dough and straws and talking about how many sides and vertices they have!

Autumn Term 1 

Chester Zoo


The children had a great time at Chester Zoo and even though it rained, it didn’t dampen our spirits! We got to see all the different animals that we have been learning about. Our favourites were the giraffes and the hornbill! 

Adopt a Reading Buddy Puppy! 

Today we adopted a puppy! 

Miss Walsh thought that we are such good readers and love reading so much that we should adopt a puppy and read to it every night. We get to take our puppies home and we promised to read to them every night for at least 15 minutes. We are then going to share all the lovely stories we have read to our puppies with the rest of the class! 🐢😊

Playground Buddy Training 

Today was a very exciting day as Poppy Class took part in Playground Buddy Training. 

Our Playground Buddy scheme plays an important part in creating a safe, friendly, happy and peaceful environment for children during lunchtimes. Their role is to help and support the lunchtime supervisors to ensure the children in Foundation Stage and KS1 are safe and happy.

Year 5 children have been selected to be Playground Buddies this year and today Poppy Class helped them in their training. We met our buddies and they explained what their role is. They then taught us some exciting new games that we can play at lunchtimes. We are so excited for our new Buddies to join us on the Key Stage 1 playground.

We has a fantastic day at Chester Zoo. We got to see lots of different animals, went on a boat ride and played in the park! We also got to step back in time and visit the ‘Predators’ exhibition which was full of fearsome animatronic animals from the prehistoric world. We came face to face with a massive megalodon, a dangerous dire wolf, a scary sabre tooth tiger and a terrifying T-Rex. It was very exciting!

Like all the other classes in school, this week we have been reading the Tin Forest. We did lots of wonderful things including descriptive writing, art and created some 3D flowers.
