Class Three

Welcome to Class Three!


Forest School - fire

Forest School Dave helped us to toast marshmallows, put the fire out safely and create drawings of traditional tales using the charcoal from the fire.


The Gunpowder Plot

We created freeze frames from the story to help us have deeper understanding of the events and characters.


Investigating Sukkot

In RE we are learning about celebrations and today thought about Sukkot, a Jewish festival celebrating the harvest and their escape from Egypt.


We built a sukkah, a shelter where Jewish people share meals with family and friends.

Three Little Pigs houses

Today we created the houses from the Three Little Pigs story using the outdoor construction.


Number bonds

We have been busy practising our number bonds. We started to get the idea of bonds in EYFS now we have to be able to recall these quickly and record them accurately.


Traditional tales with Forest School David

Today Forest School David visited. We found a scroll hidden in the garden and from that we worked out today's challenges. We used natural objects to make settings from traditional tales, such as giants footsteps, Goldilock's chairs and a bridge for the Billy Goats Gruff.


We learnt to work as a team, practised speaking and listening skills, recalled key features of a story and used our design and technology skills to create the settings.


Drama - superhero scenarios

We worked in groups to create scenarios for our superhero characters.


Handwriting practise

We have been busy correcting our letter formation in readiness for joined cursive writing. We like to help each other out when we are finding it tricky.


Part, part, whole

We recapped "part, part, whole" and impressed Miss O'Neill with what we have remembered from EYFS.


Autumn colours

We went into the garden area to collect colours of autumn and used them to decorate a wristband.


We have a new pet!

Coco is the latest member of Year One. A white guinea pig with red eyes ( she came with the name Coco - no idea why!) who is currently too small for us to handle but we are all excited for the day when we can give her a cuddle.

More and less/fewer

We have been working on the vocabulary to describe more and less (or fewer) and showing our answers practically.

Shorter days

Mrs Ball came to see as at lunch and we informed her 'we have to sit down a bit more in Year One' and 'we have shorter days in this class'. When Mrs Ball said that was because we were enjoying it more as we were more than ready for Year One we said 'no we really do have have shorter days in Year One'.


All eyes are now on Miss O'Neill! smiley

7th September 2017


This term we are thinking about our super powers and are having fun being superheroes in our role play.

When we were Class Five!

Manor Leas Mile with Mummys and Daddys

Well done to everyone for their first attempt at the mile and a big thank you to our Mummys and Daddys for joining us.  Some of us ran all the way without walking at all - look out Mo Farah.

13 July 2017

Transition Day

We spent the day in our Year One classroom with our new teacher Miss O'Neill. We met our teaching assistants Mrs Vinters and Miss Ranyard and began to find our way around the classroom.


We were a little nervous but excited at the same time.



12 July 2017

Street dance with Miss Vicky from Spotlight Dance

Today we enjoyed keeping a healthy body and a healthy mind learning some serious moves with Miss Vicky.

6 July 2017

Chambers Wood trip

We enjoyed making natural minibeasts, going on our own minibeast adventure ( where we found newts under the logs), collected a rainbow of natural objects and built dens with branches and foliage. Not forgetting umpteen visits to the toilet!


We all had a great time and did our teachers proud.

W/c 3 July 2017


Hurricane Sports visited for three days. On the first day we practised track events and on the second day tried field sports. On the final day we enjoyed an inter class athletics event.

27 June 2017

Show jumping (ordinal numbers)

We built a show jumping course and enjoyed trying to get a clean round whilst competing with our friends. This is helping us to practise our ordinal numbers (first, second, third etc).

Careers Day

19 June 2017

Today we have thought about what we want to be when we grow up and have heard about other people's chosen professions too. We've found out about being an artist, a speech and language therapist (who taught us how to sign) and a first aider.

Term 6 week 1

Purple Mash

We have a new ICT package called Purple Mash and have today learnt how to log into our personal accounts, choose a programme, then edit the text remembering capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.


We will soon be bringing our log in cards home so we can access the package from home.

Term 6 week 1

Mr Benn role-play

We have entered the world of Mr Benn (if you're younger than are teachers you will need to look it up!), been met by the shopkeeper, changed into a costume and been magically transported to a related adventure.


When we return from our adventures, we write our story down to share with our friends.
