Exploring Autumn in sparrows class. 

Sparrows class have been very busy looking a autumn in class. Some of the things we have been doing are;

Making leaf crowns 

Leaf rubbing

Looking at the life cycle of a leaf 

Looking a pumpkins and what is inside pumpkins 

We have talked about what happens to some animals during Autumn and what food grows in Autumn.

Below are some pictures and videos we hope you enjoy looking.  

 Have a lovely half term holiday with your family.

The children have had a lovely time settling into their new classroom. We have made new friends and started to learn some new sounds. 

All previous blogs post are for the previous year 2019-2020. 

World book day 

The children really world book day. In the morning we had a special visit from a story teller who told us a funny story about how the salt got into the sea. After we shared our favourite story whilst having hot chocolate and cookies with our friends. 


Reading workshop 

We hope you enjoyed the reading workshop. They children really enjoyed sharing a story and their story based activities with you. 


Healthy eating 

Today in school the children looked at healthy eating. We became healthy fruit and vegetable investigators and found pictures of fruit and vegetables hidden around our classroom. Then we learnt all about a healthy body, we were amazed to find that 4-6 year olds are only allowed 5 cubes of sugar a day. 

We really enjoyed trying lots of different foods, in sparrows class we made a tally chart and we found that our favourite was strawberries and the least favourite was mushrooms and radishes. 


Ash Wednesday 

Ash Wednesday is the first day in the season of Lent. Lent is a beautiful way to remember Jesus' sacrifice for us and prepare us for the Easter season. During lent we remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert. 

The children experienced an Ash Wednesday service with a special visit from Fr Dan. 


Pancake day 

The children enjoyed celebrating pancake day with their class. 


Whatever next 

The children really enjoyed the visit from freshwater theatre. They had a great time acting out the story and going on an adventure to space.



The children had a great time getting to look inside the ambulance. They even got to try the heart rate monitor which was very exciting. We learnt lots about what to do in an emergency. 

Nativity 2019 



The children were brilliant in the performance and were very proud of what they had achieved. 

We hope you had a great time watching them!
