Autumn Investigators

We love Autumn time in Class 1. We brought in lots of Autumn objects from outside and had a great time investigating what we had collected. We looked at veins in leaves using torches, matched leaves to trees, found secret cups to hold acorns, looked for buds on twigs...

Messy Mixing

We have been observing autumn leaves and looking closely at all the different colours that we could find. We experimented with mixing paints to match the leaves and we used the new colours that we had created to make our own autumn pictures. [gallery...

Bossy BeeBots!

We have been playing with the beebots and learning how to give them instructions to move around. We used positional language ‘forwards, backwards, sideways, left and right’ to describe and direct where we wanted the beebots to go. We worked in groups, taking it in...

Keeping Safe Online

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things.

But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault. TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to us at CEOP. Click the logo above to do this.

If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police. They will make sure you are safe.
