Term 4

We are new Moon Class! Our teacher is Miss Hughes and we are supported by Mrs Gambrill and Miss Loughran ( Mrs Austin is currently on Maternity Leave ). We have a warm, happy and colourful classroom full of Learning. We try our best and love learning about new things.

We like exploring our imagination and developing our writing skills in literacy and working with number and calculations in Maths. We love to learn about the world around us in Geography and Science, and learn about significant events in History. We learn about Christianity during worship and RE. We enjoy exploring our creativity and expressing ourselves in Art, and we love being active and learning new skills in PE.

We also explore our learning in PSHE, Music and Computing.

We love learning inside and outside of the classroom. As a school, we are lucky enough to have local woods where we can explore our learning! Particularly for our Literacy and Science topics.
