Spring term 1

Forest School


This week in Forest School the children were given blindfolds. They took it in turns to lead each other around, making sure that their partner was safe.


The children had lots of fun doing other activities as well :)

Writing Valentines day cards ...

How houses have changed


This week the children learnt about how houses have changed over time. They looked at Victorian houses, Tudor houses and Viking settlements. We discussed how the materials and the look of the houses have changed.


Mr Harvey kindly brought in some household items from when he was young and when my Grandparents were young for the children to look at. We discussed reasons why these have changed over time.

Miller the Guide dog


This week we were lucky to have a visit from Miller, a Guide Dog puppy. He came to visit us in assembly to thank us for the money that we have raised for them.

Some us to got to have a little pat on our way back to the classroom :)

Science Day


We all had a brilliant Science Day!

The class were split into 3 teams to design and make a house that would 'Beat the Flood'.

The children were provided with a range of materials and they had to work together to make their house. The children worked so nicely in their teams - I was really impressed with their team work and ability to compromise . Not all of the houses managed to 'Beat the Flood' but we had a lot of fun trying :)



Houses and Homes


Our topic this term is looking at houses.

We have looked at different houses around the world and why they are different to houses we might see here. The children have learnt the names of the types of houses that we might live in and their features.


The children then had a lot of fun making their own house.

Forest School

Visit from Kent Police


Upper I had an exciting morning with Kent Police. We all got to have a sit in the police car, hear the sirens and have our finger prints taken. The children got to ask their questions and we found out lots of information about the Police.

Forest School


It has been a cold start to year up in Forest School, so the children have been kept busy to keep them warm.
