Oriana’s last week of homeschool!

After 8 weeks of home learning, Orianna from Reception wanted to share her last week at home with you.

Oriana dressed up for World Book Day as Golidlocks (her sister was tinker Bell and Marley was Fantastic Mr Fox!)

She made a vegetable cow and pig and we also played number splat (up to 20), jelly Phonics, fun with coloured ice (melting) painting, we talked about 3D and 2D shapes too, also about doubling and practiced all of her phase 3 and 4 phonics using sensory rice and lego we also practiced phase 2,3 4 and 5 tricky words. We also listened to some fairy stories whilst we had fun.

Oriana said her favourite home learning has been making a 3D castle and robot, baking bread like the little red hen and gingerbread men, Phonics jelly and sensory play, going out for walks and playing on her scooter, making dens, painting, celebrating Chinese New year by making a huge dragon, playing with paper boats and watching them float and having lots of snuggles with mommy, daddy and her baby brother Marley and little sister Luccia. (, as well as today’s activities I have included a collage of all of the highlights of Oriana’s home learning) 

Thank you Oriana for sharing this with us – you have done so many things and these photos are a lovely memory of your time in homeschool!

We are all really glad to see you back in school though!

James and his bug hunt!

James has sent us some lovely photos of his bug hunt.

James found a few bugs & discussed with his Mummy and Daddy where they found the different ones – ladybird on a twig, woodlouse under a rock/brick , worms under plant pots.
When they came back inside, he looked up the woodlouse to check the name & talked about its features as well as the other mini beasts we found.

James then drew each one we found & his Mummy helped him to sound talk & label them. He wanted to also make them in card so he could play with them & he had the idea to make the habitats for them! He made each as we’d found them so on a duplo twig, under a brick /cushion & the worm under its ‘plant pot’!

We researched and talked about why they might like these particular habitats – relating it to what they need/eat etc. James could tell his Mummy and Daddy about it afterwards, what a woodlouse eats etc.

He really enjoyed doing this today! & learning outdoors is always nice 🙂

Miss Oliver runs the Moorfield Mile!

Here’s a few pictures from last week’s Fitness session. Miss Oliver ran her first Moorfield Mile with Base 5! The children did an excellent job as usual and are all well on their way to completing the Moorfield Marathon. Mrs Harvey is really pleased to see the children’s fitness levels improving week after week.

Ho Ho Ho, Merry Fitness!

Base 7 Christmas Picnic

While the Juniors are eating their Christmas dinner, the infants are busy enjoying a Christmas Picnic in the classroom.

There was a very festive atmosphere in the classroom.

Mrs Hill apologies that some of the photos are almost identical, but we wanted to make sure everyone got in on the act!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

We wish you a Merry Christmas

Because of COVID restrictions, we can’t sing our usual Christmas songs, or have a nativity in school.

This doesn’t mean that the children are missing out completely on Christmas though.

Base 8, our Year One class has learned to sign ” We wish you a Merry Christmas” and we wish to share it with you all.

Merry Christmas – get ready for cuteness overload!
