14th January '22: Congratulations to Ella who is our Wren hero for working so hard, building her confidence, going the extra mile and is truly flying now! All of our class agree that Ella deserves this award this week. Well done!

12th January. Today in science we learned that most animals start their life in an egg - only mammals are born as live young.

We have been learning about different sentence types this week using our story. Today we read and sorted them really quickly!

Happy New Year to all children parents and carers!  We are glad to be back and raring to go in 2022.

Our topic this term is 'China Highlights'. The knowledge organiser below details all the things we will know by the end of this half term:

What a brilliant start to the new year we have had! Today in Maths we started working with money. We learnt about the different types of coins and their values, sorted them and played which coin am I describing?

We then played shops and the Year 2's worked on adding coins together. Well done everyone!

In PE today we thought about moving safely in and around objects and other children. We moved in a variety of ways, at a variety of heights and using different speeds. We then worked together to try to use our bodies to make different letters of the alphabet. We made a L, V, F, S, C, P, W and tried lots of other letters too!

Wishing wonderful Wren class and all their parents and carers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! All the children in Wren class are on the ‘nice’ list this year! They are a credit to their families and to our school. We are incredibly proud of them. Lots of love from Mrs K, Mrs Warsop, Miss Morrison and Mrs Cooper. See you all in 2022!!!

Today we tackled some tricky problems in our escape room challenge, had a play and a dance and finished off our afternoon with hot chocolate, popcorn and Polar Express. It was perfect!

Christmas Party Day.

Laser tag, Christmas Dinner and Xmas jumper day!!

In Maths today we made 2d and 3d shapes out of spaghetti and marshmallows. The marshmallows were our vertices while the spaghetti was our sides/edges. Great job everyone!

Friday’s hero was Alfie! Well done Alfie for trying your best and always being enthusiastic about learning no matter what. Keep it up!

30.11.21. In magic maths today we investigated how to be systematic in finding all the number bonds of 8. We discovered lots of patterns to help our thinking!

Today in Maths we looked at repeating patterns. We had great fun moving our bodies and making noises. The Year 2's then looked at lines of symmetry on shape. They did a great job folding to find them and using a mirror to check. Well done everybody- a great Maths session!

Welcome back everyone! We made a great start with some creepy crawlies today! Enjoy…

Happy half term everyone!! I'm proud of all the Wrens this half term, but for today we say congratulations to this week's hero Skyla!!!

13.10.21. We observed changes in the weather, trees and plants today. Since September it is colder (16 degrees), the days are shorter and the trees are beginning to lose more of their leaves. Today we found sycamore seeds and played helicopters with them. We also learned not to touch wild mushrooms or berries in case they are poisonous.

Writing about our trip to Nottingham Castle. Friday Big Write!

Congratulations to our hero this week - Morgan! He has been busy making lots of progress in his writing and we are very proud of him! 

Today in Maths we investigated shapes. We printed with 3d shapes to see the different face shapes and thought about how many different face shapes each 3d shape had. We also used the laptops to make shape patterns. 

What a lovely day we had at the castle today! We learned all about Robin Hood and the caves under Nottingham.

Congratulations to this week's Wren Class Hero! George is amazing and has gone the extra mile this week! Well done.

In PE we have been working on travelling in different ways, balancing, rolling and holding our bodies in different positions. We have also been working on creating sequences of actions both alone and with a partner. 

This week we wrote graffiti sheets to collect adjectives to describe the settings in the story The Journey.

Today we had fun looking very closely at things through a digital microscope! Can you tell what all these things are?

Congratulations to this week's Wren hero - James who always tries hard, finishes his work and cares about his friends.

Representing numbers to 100 in year 2 maths.

Monday 20 September. Maths today was learning about ‘greater than, fewer than and equal to’. In science we looked for signs of Autumn but found it was more like summer!

17.9.21. Congratulations to our Hero this week! Kai has certainly got super powers for problem solving and for thinking things through! Well done!

17.09.2021 - Literacy based on the Gingerbread Man and our own versions of this story. Created in various ways.

Week beginning 13th Sept: We are learning about place value in maths and comparing numbers. Our PE sessions are a big hit with wrens and we are writing and making up our own stories based on the gingerbread man.

Well done to our hero of the week - Carson has been ready to learn and very independent this week.

This week we are learning to tell the story of the Gingerbread Man. We will be writing our own version next week when we have learned the story language we need.

On Thursday we hot seated the Gingerbread Man, asking him questions about the story. We then used a microphone to record an audio version of the story- it was great! Later on, we reminded ourselves of what we learnt about shapes last year and had fun playing with shapes. 

We have had a great few days getting to know each other in Wren class! We looked at our school grounds, drew pictures, made monsters, played dragons, moved water, wrote about our summer and had a go in our new maths books! 

We have had a fantastic couple of days this week. We have begun to get to know each other and make lots of new friends.


On Friday some of us made some fantastic models using different construction and we all had a great time playing with the parachute!
