Our current topic is...

Enchanted Woodland

Picture 1

We have started our new topic by reading the story of Hansel and Gretel.  The children have acted it out and have used their imaginations to describe their own characters.

In Science, we have started to look at different habitats and the animals who live in them.  The children have also enjoyed exploring the new topic areas in their classroom.  They have used natural materials such as wood, twigs, leaves and petals to create fantastic woodland scenes for fairies and woodland animals.


A topic information letter and creative homework letter will be sent out soon.

Bella Italia Creative Homework

We were blown away by the amazing projects that the children brought in.  Thank you so much for your support.

Times Tables

The children are currently practising their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and every Wednesday afternoon they are challenged to see how many they can recall in a set amount of time.  Rock music is also played in the background to spur the children on!  

Here are a couple of links to some active songs from the BBC Sport website to help your child to learn their times tables and keep them moving at the same time!

Our last topic was Bright Lights, Big City.  In our English lessons, we started off by writing a diary entry for Paddington Bear as he arrived in London for the first time.

After that, the children started to learn about the Great Fire of London and wrote their own diary entries like Samuel Pepys.
