We had the most wonderful time making cards, decorations, calendars, retelling The Christmas Story, singing Christmas songs, taking part in The Barnsley Hospice Rudolph Run and much much more! 


Our Christmas performance was amazing!


Remembrance Day

Vincent van Gogh

Every half term we will be focussing on a different artist and some of their most famous art work. This half term we chose to look at Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh.   We found out some interesting facts about him and then we re created the famous painting, using oil pastels and chalk.  They look fantastic!

Harvest Preparations

We had a super time at Weston Park Museum

Our reading river book for Autumn Term 1 is Fearless Fairy Tales.  

The stories are great and we are really enjoying them.

 Reading

We encourage parents to read with and listen to their child read for a short time every day. Enjoying books is a lovely thing to do together. Reading books and diaries are expected to be in school every day, to allow us to read with your child and change books as necessary. 

Spelling

Spellings will be given out each week on Friday. It is important that children practice their spellings at home ready for their test the week after.  Spelling books will stay in school and your child will receive a weekly spelling sheet to practice them at home ready for their test every Friday. 

Remember to use Spelling Shed! 

REMEMBER to use Times Table Rock Stars, Doodle and Spelling Shed.
