Fabulous Phonics

A big thank you to all of you who attended the fantastic Phonics Workshop last week.  For those of you who were unable to attend or did not receive a handout please find the handouts here.  We are hoping to be able to run this session again in the near future so if you were unable to attend please don't feel that you have missed out. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like some further support with Phonics!

Pizza Express

To link to our topic ‘What is growing in the garden?’ we took a trip to Pizza Express to explore what they use to make pizzas.


When we got there, they quizzed us on the ingredients they use on the pizzas by showing us pictures. We then got our hands dirty! We pressed out the dough so it looked like a fried egg. They told us to hit the dough hard on both sides, which we enjoyed very much! After that, we took the dough into one hand and passed it to the other to stretch it out so it was then ready to put into the tray. We added the tomato sauce on, followed by the mozzarella and finally some pepper and oregano. 


We found out that in one large tin of Pizza Express tomato sauce there are 156 tomatoes and only 1 basil leaf!

Forest School


We love going to forest school and exploring the outdoors. We go whatever the weather. There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing! We have had the opportunity to made dens and make boats linked to our topic. These pictures show how much fun we have!

Science- Materials


At the beginning of term, we had the opportunity to explore different materials. We talked about the similaries and differences between the materials and used adjectives to describe them. We came up with some great ones!





Beech Building Challenge

We had a lot of fun exploring building our own tower with marshmallows and spaghetti. We had a look at a picture of the Eiffel tower and why we thought it was strong. We noticed that the bottom was bigger than the top and therefore stronger. We also noticed lots of triangles which we discovered made the tower strong as a triangle is the strongest shape. 


Enjoy our sticky, fun pictures!
