This week we have had another exciting visit from the Story Teller.
Alec told us some fascinating stories and kept us all entertained.

To learn all about our local area (Chelmsley Wood), we went on a walk to see what facilities and features we have all around us, which we can use to help us learn, go shopping and have fun.



In Numeracy this week we are learning all about the season Autumn, and what colour leaves are the most popular. What colour do you see frequently in Autumn?

The week of 4/11/13 all of Key Stage 1 learnt about Diwali and Hanukkah for our Multi-Cultural Week. During the week we split into our team houses and learnt interesting facts about these celebrations. We had a go at lots of different activities, like Diwali dancing, making Jewish toys, making rangoli patterns and tasting Jewish and Indian food. We had a very fun week!

In R.E we have been learning all about Advent and the birth of Jesus.
We have made Advent promises and wrote about the Christmas Story.
We also performed an amazing nativity called "Hey Ewe" all about the Christmas Story and our Mum's, Dad's and lots of other family members came and watched.

On Monday 16/12/13 we had an exciting surprise. We went for a walk to the post box and posted our Christmas lists to Father Christmas. We sang Christmas hymns all the way and wore Christmas hats and boppers.

Our new term back at school in 2014 is all about Pirates. So far we have made our very own eye patch and pirate name badge and went on a walk around school, listening to all the sounds, listening out for the nasty pirate who had stolen our TREASURE!! Luckily we found Black Beard Busst and got our treasure back.
We even had a very exciting visit off Pirate Ron who told us all about the history of the pirates and helped us to make our very own pirate puppets.

We have had a very exciting science work, learning all about COLOURS! We learnt all about how light reflects colours, how to make different colours and also tried out mind tricks that tricked our eyes with lots of different colours.

Our class assembly was all about SPRING! We read, sang, danced and performed to our families and school friends. It was really fun and we loved doing it.

Our topic this term is all about homes, we have learnt all about different types of homes including terraced, semi -detached, bungalows and flats. We have drawn our home and are really looking forward to our Mum's coming in for Mum's day where we are going to be making our very own home!

Today our Mum's came into school to help us make our very own home, which we designed and decided who was going to live there. We loved working with our Mum's and had lots of fun making our home. We used different materials and found out the best ways how to stick them together. Take a look at some of our amazing pictures ...
