Children in Need

We spent some time on Children in Need day talking about the reason for the day and the children it may benefit. Along with this, the focus for this year is to improve the wellbeing of all children, by encouraging them to think about the 'Five to Thrive'-the five things that may be beneficial to their wellbeing. 


Connect-talk to people. This could be friends or family

Take Notice-be aware and mindful of the world around you

Get Active-spend some time exercising

Be Curious-improve your growth mindset by learning something new

Give-things such as time and kindness that don't cost money


We tried an activity for each area and the photos below show some of these.




As part of our learning for Remembrance Day, we read the book 'Poppy Field' by Michael Morpurgo. We then wrote down some of our thoughts about remembrance. Here are some of the things we said:


"I hope no one will forget what the soldiers did for us."

"I wish the soldiers were alive so we could say thank you."

"I want people to respect Remembrance Day."

"I love seeing people wearing poppies to appreciate those who died."


We also painted a 'thought pebble' to help us remember.



As part of our English unit 'Girl and Robot' the children designed or built some amazing robots demonstrating fabulous creativity and engineering skills. Well done everyone!

We have really enjoyed learning about our class birds in the first week and getting used to our new routines, classrooms and teachers.

We celebrated Roald Dahl Story Day on Friday to link in with our class reading books 'The Witches.'


We became 'Witchophiles' and created posters about how to recognise witches and completed some fun activities including making a mouse who appears later in the story.
