Our Activities

Academic Year 2020 - 2021

Summer Term

Using the outdoor classroom for some 'Acting'

We have some vegetable and flower seeds to plant! Today we found out about edible plants. We were already very knowledgeable because of our Farming Topic in the Autumn Term. We have planted some herbs in pots which we hope to sell.

Spring 2021

Our Science topic for the Summer Term will be plants. In preparation for this we have planted sunflower seeds, cleared all the pots ready for planting and planted some potatoes so we can observe how they grow.

Cricket coaching has been great fun! Our bowling and batting has really improved!

The costumes were amazing today! A great collection of knights, dragons and princesses arrived for our topic wow day.

Monday 4th January

Topic Dress Up Day

Come to school dressed as a princess, knight or dragon.

Week 6th December 

Today we made sure the roof was waterproof. Then our house had to withstand the fan so we could check that it would be safe for The Three Little Pigs!

We started to make a suitable house for the Three Little Pigs. On Thursday we will make sure our houses have a waterproof roof.

Week 30th November

Then it was Year 2s turn. They made some REALLY revolting sandwiches!

Year 1 had great fun today creating their own ‘Disgusting Sandwich’.

Week 23rd November

We have explored materials to see if they will stretch, squash and bend.

We enjoyed the sunshine to draw Autumn trees for our ‘Seasons Study’.

Week 9th November 


Today we wrote about Remembrance Day. We couldn't buy poppies this year so Mrs Palmer made us some (and donated to The Poppy Appeal).

We are loving our new book The Disgusting Sandwich! Mrs Palmer found a disgusting sandwich outside and we all agreed that it was DISGUSTING!

Week 12th October

William reviewed his book this week. He chose it because he loves dogs. We enjoyed all of the rhyming words.

Week 5th October

We played pirates in PE. This helped us to improve our co-ordination to do two things at once (running and holding a ball) and working as a team to take turns.

Our book review this week was a Horrid Henry book. We all laughed a lot!

As part of our Farming in Somerset topic, we investigated products to see if they were made in Somerset or not. We found the places in Somerset on a map.

Week 28th September 

We have dodged the raindrops this week to run as many 'Golden Miles' as we can. Also, in PE, Miss Storey has been teaching us about keeping our bodies healthy so we are eating lots of fruit at break time!

We are all loving our new 'Book Bag' books. They closely match the phonic scheme and we take them home to read to consolidate our learning at school.

We found out about old farming methods when they used horses instead of tractors! We also learnt about what different farm animals give us.

It was very wet at lunchtime today so we watched a Tractor Ted DVD all about harvesting vegetables. It was very helpful for our topic learning.

Week 21st September 

This week Year 1 starting learning about The Little Red Hen and Year 2 learned about Character Description. 

Albie chose The World's Worst Children for this book review. He loves the book because it is so funny. We thought so too when Mrs Palmer read a chapter.

Sequencing The Little Red Hen

Our handwriting is becoming beautiful and Year 2 are making sure they know their key words!

Week 7th September 


We have had a busy first week back!  We began our 'Farming in Somerset' topic, played listening games, had stories and enjoyed our first PE lesson with Miss Storey.

We thought about if a mammal, bird or reptile came from an egg or not!

Sorting animals into Herbivores, Carnivores and Omnivores

We have made a reading area outside

We had a great last PE lesson. We all got a bit wet including Miss Storey!

Tuesday 14th July. We made lion collages!

Today we spotted a grasshopper! It stayed very still when it sensed us!

We have been learning about the King of the Jungle! Today we used charcoal to draw the Lion's head. We all got a bit messy but our pictures were brilliant!

We found lots of leaves in our wooded area and grounds. Then we used them to make beautiful leaf prints.

Jemima has been learning about Africa at home. Look at her amazing food web and Kenyan flag.

We have been very busy learning about the continent of Africa. We weren't too sure about the elephant poo notepad that Mrs Palmer brought in!
