Our reading journal comes home with 1 or 2 children per week. They complete book reviews or recommendations, update us on their recent reads or favourite authors and books ๐Ÿ“š

So far, we've had two completions! We look forward to more over this term and this year!

HDSF Cycling Morning

Today, we had an amazing opportunity to learn to cycle or improve our cycling with Herts Disability Sports Foundation ๐Ÿšด‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด 

It was wonderful to see everyone gain confidence, whether in starting to balance and pedal, or speed and control! 


Through generous donations and funding, the programme donates or exchanges bikes to those who don't currently have one. They'll be back soon to cycle and distribute these. 


Our Geography topic this half term is Rivers ๐ŸŒŠ Everyone has made an excellent start, using atlases to locate rivers around the world and in the UK. This week, we also looked more in depth at the River Nile and learned why it was so important to the Ancient Egyptians. Pupils have produced some great map work and writing to support their learning, as you can see from the photos! 

The Lost Words Poetry

We have started our English this year by reading and listening to the poetry from The Lost Words, all about British nature ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ€

We immersed ourselves in developing our vocabulary and visited the sensory garden to gain first hand experience! After this, we wrote a class poem based on a conker. The children's final pieces were created and illustrated beautifully.
