Our Vipers Book this week (7th-11th December) has been

The Nutcracker

The children have loved listening to it and finding out what Clara and the Nutcracker Prince did to the evil mice and then meeting the Sugar Plum Fairy in Sweet Land.

After reading the story we spent some time learning about and having a go at ballet dancing by watching clips of The Nutcracker the ballet. It was very funny trying to copying! :)

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from The Nutcracker (The Royal Ballet)

Mrs Page's Learning Group had a really good try at copying her!

Inspired by the book An Angel Just Like Me by Mary Hoffman we made our own angels... just like us!

Our Winter Walk (and it started to snow!) Friday 4th December

23rd November - 27th November


Throughout the week we have given the children lots of opportunities to explore measuring and weighing different objects, we have learnt new words to describe how big something is by reading our story Jack and the Beanstalk and we have used Mister Maker's Shapes to inspire us to make our own and use shapes in lots of different ways.

We have had lots of fun! 

Mister Maker's Arty Party: Shapes Dance!

It's everyone's favourite dancing shapes! Sing along and see if you can guess what they're making this time.

Poppy Day

With the help of the CBeebies Poppy animation below we talked about why we celebrate it every year. We do it to REMEMBER and to say THANK YOU to soldiers who are always keeping us safe.

'Poppies' is a BBC Children's remembrance animation. The animation sees The Great War experienced by the animal inhabitants of a WW1 battlefield.

Monday 9th November

Topic Launch Day 

We introduced our new Topic of SPECIAL TIMES and SPECIAL THINGS by looking at what 'special' means and by answering the big question Will you read me a story? 

Mrs Page, Mrs Straw and Miss Kelly took it in turns to share their favourite books with the children and explain why they are special to us. 

We celebrated Bonfire Night on 5th and 6th November

Our scratch art fireworks!

On Wednesday 4th November we celebrated our whole school


We dressed in our best rainbow coloured clothes and did lots of different activities.

We started the day by reading...

Monsters Love Colors

Monsters Love Colors, book written and illustrated by Mike Austin.

We then went outside and did our own colour scribbling, mixing, dancing and wiggling!
We then finished the day by 'tasting the rainbow' and trying different fruits and vegetables matching the colours of the rainbow.

Our first day and we had a rainbow!
